[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] – 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] – Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It – Chris Baker

Who doesn’t love a good anthology? And, friends and fiends, this is a good anthology. This delightfully gory collection centres around the figure of Mr Deadman, each short story featuring the strange character in one way or another. They all feel different, with characters from different walks of life, all with their own version ofContinue reading “[Review] – Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It – Chris Baker”

[Interview] – Author Patrick R. McDonough

By Garrett Witt Welcome all. Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing a growing name in the indie horror/scifi field, Patrick R. McDonough.  GW – Hi Patrick, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself and your background?  PRM – Hello Garrett. Thank you for having me! I’m a New Englander that movedContinue reading “[Interview] – Author Patrick R. McDonough”

[REVIEW] Growing Things – Paul Tremblay

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. A story-behind-the-story. I love that! It makesContinue reading “[REVIEW] Growing Things – Paul Tremblay”

[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] To Be Devoured – by Sara Tantlinger

4.5 / 5.0 Sara Tantlinger’s debut novellette, To Be Devoured, is an unsettling and gritty story with a darkly poetic voice. Though it’s not necessarily violent, it has an extremely violent feel throughout (in the sense that there are bared teeth that continuously open wider, revealing sharpened blades). Despite a conclusion that felt a littleContinue reading “[REVIEW] To Be Devoured – by Sara Tantlinger”

[REVIEW] The House That Jack Built – by Dale Robertson

I’ve always been a huge fan of great cover and a haunted house story. In fact, I would put it above all other sub genres of horror as my favorite. So, when I was approached to read The House That Jack Built by the darkly talented Dale Robertson, I wasn’t hesitant to jump in. WeContinue reading “[REVIEW] The House That Jack Built – by Dale Robertson”

[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”
