by Shannon Felton There have been a lot of great newcomers in the last two years, and Shannon Felton is no exception. Her debut – a gripping novella called The Prisoners of Stewartville – is a fast-paced, terribly gritty story that blends crime, drama and horror with ease. Like The Blinds (Adam Sternbergh), this novelContinue reading “[Review] – The Prisoners of Stewartville”
By James Newman and Mark Steensland Loved it. Honestly? I didn’t want to go 5, solely because I have been a 5 star factory here, lately. I tried to think of something about this book that would keep it from being a 5, but I came up with nothing. I figured out where this storyContinue reading “[Review] – In The Scrape”
by Laurel Hightower The high amount of impressive debut novels is a trend I’ve noticed amongst the indie horror community. Laurel Hightower’s Whispers In The Dark is no exception. It’s a ghost story with elements of romance, and the protagonist Rose McFarland is a kick-ass female SWAT sniper. Can’t say I’ve read anything close toContinue reading “[Review] – Whispers In The Dark”
By John Quick I think that in order to have a good haunted house story you have to have a rich and well defined setting. I mean the haunted apartment or the haunted hotel room just don’t do the same things for me as that sprawling 4 story and a tower room do. The settingContinue reading “[Review] – The Corruption of Alston House”
By Douglas Hackle *Minor Spoilers Awwww, YEAH! (I feel that since I am submitting this for Dead Head Reviews, I need to tell you that I didn’t just throw an “Awww, yeah” out there for nothing – it is from the book.) Look, I loved this book, and if I am honest, it was kindaContinue reading “[Review] – Terror Mannequin”
Intro It was the early 2000s and I had no idea who Mark Sieber was either …yet. All I knew was his name appeared in the Shocklines message boards very often and he seemed very opinionated, but also extremely well informed. I was at a point in my horror reading life where I’d read allContinue reading “[Interview] – Who the Hell is Mark Sieber?”
By EV Knight This book was recently released on March 25th. EV Knight comes out swinging in her debut novel from Raw Dog Screaming Press. This is a blood soaked, apocalyptic, splatterpunky revenge tale that is epic in scope. The book borrows from folklore in order to portray the end of the world. It actually remindedContinue reading “[Review] – The Fourth Whore”

Sixteen years later, she does whatever it takes to survive. With few people looking out for her, she has no other choice. But when drug dealersContinue reading “[Review] – The Fourth Whore”
by Wrath James White and Kristopher Rufty I usually try to avoid reading the same author twice in a row, but I made a mistake in planning my reviews and read Wrath White’s Voracious before this one. This was okay though, since I really enjoy reading Wrath’s stuff, and I’ve never read Rufty before. InContinue reading “[Review] – Master of Pain”
by Calvin Demmer Calvin Demmer immediately became one of my favorite writers when I read his debut collection The Sea Was A Fair Master. Many people agree with me when I say it is excellent. Calvin knows how to pack such a punch in what seems as little words as possible. So it may beContinue reading “[Review] – Dark Celebrations”

For Katherine, Alston House is the perfect placeContinue reading “[Review] – The Corruption of Alston House”

From the outset, Waggoner lets the reader know that there are going to be some strange elementsContinue reading “[Review] – The Forever House”
by Andrew Cull Remains is a slow-burn. It’s a psychological, well-crafted story. It’s ambiguous. It’s unnerving. Unsettling. Terrifying. But above all, it’s a story so damn good, it almost hurts. I know some people consider slow burns a negative thing. I mean quite the opposite. Cull has an incredible gift for weaving in so muchContinue reading “[Review] – Remains”
