[Review] – Dead Daughters

by Tim Meyer Dead Daughters will be released today, April 16th, from Poltergeist Press. After 69 made my Top 10 of 2019, you can bet your ass I jumped on an ARC of Meyer’s latest work, Dead Daughters.

[Review] – The Girl Next Door

by Jack Ketchum This book is not for anyone who wishes to avoid reading about graphically descripted torture, sexual abuse, and child abuse. Now that we have that out of the way, Ketchum is a master of his craft. I read this book in ten days. 334 pages in ten days. Some people can readContinue reading “[Review] – The Girl Next Door”

[Review] – Whispers In The Dark

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”

[Review] – Ketchup On Everything

We are taught that violence is aContinue reading “[Women In Horror Month] – Women of Cosmic Horror”

[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”
