[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”

[Reviews] – Dig Two Graves Vol. II

By Death’s Head Press I’ve recently reviewed Volume 1 of this anthology series, and I’ve already said what I wanted to say about anthologies in general. So, I will make this short. As with any anthology, there are highlights and lowlights. These were the highlights: “Catalog” by Wesley Southard – This is the first story in this anthology, andContinue reading “[Reviews] – Dig Two Graves Vol. II”

[REVIEW] The Night Crawls In – by Steve Stred

I have read a few of Steve’s books this year – including The Stranger, Jane, and The Girl Who Hid in the Trees – but I think The Night Crawls In has to be my favorite so far. This collection of drabbles (stories averaging just a couple hundred words for the most part) and poemsContinue reading “[REVIEW] The Night Crawls In – by Steve Stred”

[REVIEW] The Crow’s Gift (And Other Tales)- by Sonora Taylor

I have found these short collections to be very useful in finding new favorite authors in the indie community. If it only takes you a couple hours to check out a release, you’re more likely to give a new writer a chance you wouldn’t give if they only had long novels available for introduction. AsContinue reading “[REVIEW] The Crow’s Gift (And Other Tales)- by Sonora Taylor”

[REVIEW] Husk – by Rachel Autumn Deering

[Spoilers Ahead] Husk tells the story of a soldier home from war, dealing with the stress of PTSD and drugs. For the majority of the novella, it reads more like a drama than horror; Kevin Brooks is damaged from losing his best friend in Afghanistan, and is looking to cope with that loss and theContinue reading “[REVIEW] Husk – by Rachel Autumn Deering”

[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] The Stranger – by Steve Stred

Is it me or is there something about the woods that just creeps you the hell out? The paranoia, The isolation, The bluntness and finality of knowing you’re either getting out or not?  Steve Stred’s The Stranger takes all of your childhood fears of the forest and manifest them into a story that is dark,Continue reading “[REVIEW] The Stranger – by Steve Stred”

[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”

[REVIEW] The Nightmare Room (The Messy Man No.1) – by Chris Serenson

Haunted house stories will forever hold a place in my horror heart of hearts. There is such a primal fear that comes from not knowing what is in the dark, watching your every move. Waiting for the right time to show it’s true form. This has always been the sub genre of horror that getsContinue reading “[REVIEW] The Nightmare Room (The Messy Man No.1) – by Chris Serenson”
