[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] – Screamscapes: Tales of Terror

By Evans Light This is a great collection of stories. Some authors just speak to you. There are a lot of great authors out there, but sometimes you (the reader) and the writer just click. 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”

[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”

[Double-Feature – Review] – The Old One And The Sea

By Patrick R. McDonough This book made me feel like a child, and I mean that exclusively in every complimentary way imaginable. Let’s start with the idea of the book itself. It’s about a young Howard Phillips Lovecraft as a child. It’s before he was a writer. And like the author’s (Lex H Jones) introductionContinue reading “[Double-Feature – Review] – The Old One And The Sea”

[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”

[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”

[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”
