[Devil’s Creek Week] – Brennan’s Review

Devil’s CreekBy Todd KeislingBook Release date: June 16th, 2020 Give me that old time religion and it’s good enough for me. When you turn the last page of Devil’s Creek, by Todd Keisling, you read that despite the completion date being in 2019, the starting date was in 2007. This story made quite a journeyContinue reading “[Devil’s Creek Week] – Brennan’s Review”

[Review] – Ketchup On Everything

By Nathan Robinson This novella came to me as a random recommendation spotted on Goodreads (and by “random recommendation,” I mean I read a positive review in my timeline and decided to look up the title). You see, I’m a lot more likely to tackle something new and out of the blue if it’s easilyContinue reading “[Review] – Ketchup On Everything”

[Women In Horror Month] – More Women Authors You May Have Missed

Yes, it has occurred to me that every other WIHM article on Dead Head Reviews has been written by a woman.  (Dammit Patrick…You told me I could do this…) So, hopefully you have read all of the other articles this month.  Those are all poignant, heartfelt, and brilliantly written articles, told from unique viewpoints.  *sigh*Continue reading “[Women In Horror Month] – More Women Authors You May Have Missed”

[Women In Horror Month] – The Goblets Immortal

By Beth Overmyer It has been many years since I’ve read anything in the fantasy genre, save The Hobbit. Seeing as I’ve made a promise this year to continue expanding what I read, I thought I would give The Goblets Immortal a chance at reeling me back into the land of mystical creatures and wizards.Continue reading “[Women In Horror Month] – The Goblets Immortal”

[Review] – Piece of Me

By Steve Stred Frostbitten: 12 Hymns of Misery was the third or fourth book I read by Steve Stred in 2019. It was also my first time entering the world you’ll find in Piece of Me, thanks to the story, “For Balder Walks.” It was bleak, enigmatically magical, and frigid – I literally got chillsContinue reading “[Review] – Piece of Me”

[Review] – The Brides of Hanover Block

By Gregor Xane Gregor Xane is fastly becoming my favorite Bizarro(?) author. Is that what you call it? Edward Lorn is on record saying that you can call Gregor bizarro, but really he is a (speculative) fiction writer. Here is what I do know. This books takes you out there, way out there, to someContinue reading “[Review] – The Brides of Hanover Block”

[Review] – Screamscapes: Tales of Terror

By Evans Light This is a great collection of stories. Some authors just speak to you. There are a lot of great authors out there, but sometimes you (the reader) and the writer just click. I am starting to feel that with Evans Light’s writing. I can’t really explain it, but the pages of hisContinue reading “[Review] – Screamscapes: Tales of Terror”

[REVIEW] Remains – by Andrew Cull

4.5 / 5.0 Bones got our attention; Remains seals the deal. Andrew Cull has a talent for building suspense. The atmosphere he sets is that of a scary movie, complete with spooks in windows, loud sounds, and crazy messages on the wall. Better yet, this story has a very meaningful base of support – ourContinue reading “[REVIEW] Remains – by Andrew Cull”

[REVIEW] Kinfolk – by Matt Kurtz

I just want to say there could possibly be a trigger scene in the first chapter for new readers to this story. Rape is a touchy subject and one of the darkest scenes in this book. Matt lets you know how dark this story could get straight out of the gate. So be prepared forContinue reading “[REVIEW] Kinfolk – by Matt Kurtz”
