Baal – Robert McCammon

    To say that I like Robert McCammon’s writing is like saying fish kind of like water. He is, without a doubt, my favorite author that ever put ink to paper. His writing has wrung out every emotion possible from within my soul and has helped shape who I am as a reader, writerContinue reading “Baal – Robert McCammon”

Apparition – Michaelbrent Collings

  Every once in a while, you run across a book that has a pretty hight rating, an intriguing sounding premise and some really nice reviews to back it up. So, you enthusiastically pick it up and begin reading. It’ll start out slow, but thats okay. We’ve all read books that seem to stumble aroundContinue reading “Apparition – Michaelbrent Collings”

We Came Back – Patrick Lacey

  WE CAME BACK is the impressive sophomoric effort from Patrick Lacey. While, yes, there are shades of King’s SOMETIME’S THEY COME BACK and CARRIE, WE CAME BACK is it’s own monster. A high school revenge tale that takes on a twisted life of it’s own. We can imagine the Melvins in the world. We’veContinue reading “We Came Back – Patrick Lacey”

The Incurables – Jon Bassoff

  Every once in a while, a book comes along that has a subject matter that really stick with you. The Incurables struck that chord with me. I’m kind of a sucker for horror with a historical setting. Bassoff’s offering is set in 1953 and uses a real character with a sordid legacy, Dr. WalterContinue reading “The Incurables – Jon Bassoff”

Jurassic, Florida – Hunter Shea

  Let me start this review off by saying that I’m a big fan of Hunter Shea. The guy has made his bread and butter by putting out high-quality creature features. With the amount of work this guy has published in the last few years, even Rembrandt has to stumble once in a while. Jurassic,Continue reading “Jurassic, Florida – Hunter Shea”

The Beast of Brenton Woods – Jackson R. Thomas

  Jackson R. Thomas’s debut comes to us in the form of a small-town werewolf yarn, The Beast of Brenton Woods. As far as debuts go, it’s a decent one, but the Beast also has a few fleas that I would like to see removed. Bodies are starting to show up again in Brenton WoodsContinue reading “The Beast of Brenton Woods – Jackson R. Thomas”

Operation Antarctica – William Meikle

  Captain John Banks and his men are fresh off their encounter with underwater beasties off the Baffin Island coast. If they thought they’d seen everything on that mission, they won’t believe their eyes on their next assignment. The Scottish solidiers are sent to investigate a forgotten Nazi outpost on Antarctica. What they find isContinue reading “Operation Antarctica – William Meikle”

Forsaken – Michael McBride

  I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve been able to visit two different Mayan pyramids in my travels – Tikal in Guatemala and Chichen Itza in the Yucat√°n. So you can imagine my excitement when I learned that McBride was going to be using the pyramid at Teotihuacan as one of the main settings inContinue reading “Forsaken – Michael McBride”

Land of Bones – Glenn Rolfe

  Land of Bones by Glenn Rolfe is a 14 story collection of horrific shorts and novellas. Let’s jump right in and break these down in order:   Ghosts of Spears Corner – Two boys, days from starting middle school in the 1950s, decide to break into the boarded up Spears House, the local hauntedContinue reading “Land of Bones – Glenn Rolfe”

Dead City – Joe McKinney

  This is my first time reading anything by Joe McKinney. Dead City has been on my TBR pile for quite some time. Three to four years, to be exact. My hesitation has stemmed from the gluttony of zombie stories that have flooded the market in the past decade. It’s really too bad, because DeadContinue reading “Dead City – Joe McKinney”
