[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] – 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] – Sing Your Sadness Deep

By Laura Mauro Sing Your Sadness Deep is a haunting collection of short stories exploring loneliness, isolation, and human connection. The thirteen tales in this dark fiction compilation tiptoe on the edge of horror and a few have a touch of magical realism. Mauro’s flexible writing style and strong technique both require the reader to examine theContinue reading “[Review] – Sing Your Sadness Deep”

[Review] – The Fucking Zombie Apocalypse

By Bryan Smith By my count, this is Smith’s 41st published work and I guess he wanted to celebrate this by putting the word “fucking” in one of his book titles. As he should.  The more that I think about it, the more I believe he should’ve put this word in all of his titles: Fucking KillContinue reading “[Review] – The Fucking Zombie Apocalypse”

[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”
