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.

Can’t say I’ve read anything close toContinue reading “[Review] – Whispers In The Dark”

Jack Frost, Krampus, Silent Night, Deadly Night and many others often find themselves playing on my TV throughout the cold months.

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”
Growing Things and Other Stories is Paul Tremblay’s most recent book. Comprised of 19 short stories, this collection is nothing short of hypnotic. It will resonate with you long after the last page has turned. This book has, for lack of a better word, a bonus feature—notes. A select few stories have notes on how the stories came to be.
