Live Girls – Ray Garton

Surprises happen all the time – getting that lady in the drive-thru that is refreshingly pleasant and doesn’t bitch about how shitty of a job she has, finding a $20 bill in your pants pocket that you didn’t know you had, randomly finding that gem of a horror movie that you’ve never heard of beforeContinue reading “Live Girls – Ray Garton”

Icefire – Robert C. Wilson

Wilson’s ICEFIRE is a doorstopper of a novel that many people poo poo because, heaven forbid, it has many words within it’s covers. I think it’s unfortunate because ICEFIRE really is a solid read. It was written in a different time period, the early 1980s. MTV was still in it’s infancy and hadn’t corrupted theContinue reading “Icefire – Robert C. Wilson”

The Hunger – Whitley Strieber

Whitley Strieber was always one of those authors that I’d heard of from the 1980s, had a handful of his paperbacks sitting on my shelf, but never pulled the trigger on. Maybe it was because he was kind of looked upon as a flake later on after he came out that he was abducted byContinue reading “The Hunger – Whitley Strieber”

Loch Ness Revenge – Hunter Shea

    2019 is starting out with a bang as Hunter Shea’s LOCH NESS REVENGE is my first read of the new year. And oh what a read it was. Who isn’t fascinated by one of the most famous cryptids of all time, the Loch Ness Monster? For me, Nessie has always been one ofContinue reading “Loch Ness Revenge – Hunter Shea”

Welcome to the Show – edited by Doug Murano

    WELCOME TO THE SHOW is a collection of tales surrounding the fabled San Franciscan concert hall, The Shantyman. In my opinion, rock and horror go together like peas and carrots, so this should be right up my alley. Without further ado, lets jump right in – What Sort of Rube – Alan M.Continue reading “Welcome to the Show – edited by Doug Murano”

The House by the Cemetery – John Everson

  The House by the Cemetery is meant for horror fans. You know who we are. We’re the ones that go to the midnight showings of classic Carpenter, Craven or even Argento or Fulci flicks. We have the wal-to-wall collections of horror Blu Rays. Halloween is our national holiday. And we go to haunted houses,Continue reading “The House by the Cemetery – John Everson”

Under The Fang – Edited by Robert R. McCammon

  Under The Fang is one I’ve seen on bookstore shelves many times throughout the 1980s. Its chock full of the decade’s horror stalwarts, yet somehow I never picked it up. On a trip to my favorite used bookstore, I came across it again and made sure not  to overlook it this time. Let’s seeContinue reading “Under The Fang – Edited by Robert R. McCammon”

The Siren and The Specter – Jonathan Janz

  There’s atmosphere a plenty in Jonathan Janz’s latest, THE SIREN AND THE SPECTER. Creepiness and dread oozes from each subsequent page after page. David is a cynic. He has to be. It’s his job. Debunking hauntings has paved the way for a decent living. Now David’s college pal invites him to Virginia to writeContinue reading “The Siren and The Specter – Jonathan Janz”

The Mark – Lee Mountford

  The combination of old school and modern horror merge nicely in this demonic ghost story from Mountford. Imagine, if you will, you’ve had a rough week and you’re still trying to get the remnants of an abusive relationship out of your system. So blowing off a little steam at the local pub with yourContinue reading “The Mark – Lee Mountford”

Practitioners – Matt Hayward & Patrick Lacey

  I’ve been noticing more and more collaboration novels in the horror genre lately. I’ve always been curious as to how two different authors can concoct a story together and keep everything seemlessly cohesive. Matt Hayward and Patrick Lacey are able to do just that in Practitioners. You really can’t tell who wrote what. TheContinue reading “Practitioners – Matt Hayward & Patrick Lacey”
