Bunny Sneaks – William Meikle

Do you ever wonder what the hell you had just read? I’m shaking my head wondering the same thing at this very moment. Bunny Sneaks is an odd short story. It’s not scary. It isn’t realistic. It doesn’t even feel like satire. It feels like a watered-down scene from Child’s Play and instead of ChuckyContinue reading “Bunny Sneaks – William Meikle”

Things We Fear – Glenn Rolfe

This review pains me to write. I’ve read and reviewed Rolfe’s Blood and Rain, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I can say the same for his Boom Town. Unfortunately, I can’t give my seal of approval for Things We Fear. I don’t feel like I’d be doing anyone a favor by sugar-coating my honest opinion, soContinue reading “Things We Fear – Glenn Rolfe”

Northwoods – Bill Schweigart

Schweigart has done it again. Northwoods is book #2 in his cryptozoology thrill ride of a series (I hear he’s already hard at work on book #3). After teaming up to defeat the bloodthirsty and relentless shapeshifter in The Beast of Barcroft, Lindsay and Ben are back to tackle a nightmare that makes the BeastContinue reading “Northwoods – Bill Schweigart”

Skinshift – Lisa von Biela

Dominic has been left for dead out in the desert by his cohorts after a simple pick pocketing job goes awry. After stumbling around and drinking some funky colored water that looked like it was draining from an old mineshaft, he gets attacked by a coyote. He kills and eats the coyote, then changes intoContinue reading “Skinshift – Lisa von Biela”

The Dead Zone – Stephen King

The Dead Zone was a re-read for me, as many will be as I go through The Stephen King Challenge, and I forgot how powerful this book was. King was really in fine form during this period in the late 1970s. Johnny Smith is a young teacher that has started to date Sarah, another youngContinue reading “The Dead Zone – Stephen King”

Hell’s Bounty – Joe Lansdale

Smith, a bounty hunter in the old west, is one mean and selfish SOB. He lets a prostitute get beaten from an inch of her life by his latest bounty while sitting downstairs in the saloon. While attempting to gun down Quill, his bounty, he blows himself up with his signature weapon – dynamite. TheContinue reading “Hell’s Bounty – Joe Lansdale”

Unseemly – Jason Parent

The novella, Unseemly, is my first read from author, Jason Parent. For a guy who hails from New England, Jason does a really nice job at painting a vivid and realistic picture of a secluded. island off of the northern coast of Scotland. Parent summons his inner Lovecraft as he introduces us to Peter, anContinue reading “Unseemly – Jason Parent”

The Long Walk – Stephen King

The Long Walk is a re-read for me that I picked back up for Book #7 of the Stephen King Challenge. It is also one of the original stories that King wrote as Richard Bachman. I found it funny in the prologue section entitled The Importance of Being Bachman, King writes that he used hisContinue reading “The Long Walk – Stephen King”

Zero Lives Remaining – Adam Cesare

It’s 1989 and Robby is working at the Funcave arcade making pizzas. Some may not think very much of Robby’s job, but he loves working there and takes it very seriously. Then, one day, a freak accident pulls Robby into the pizza oven and just like that, no more Robby. Even though his body isn’tContinue reading “Zero Lives Remaining – Adam Cesare”

Submerged – Thomas Monteleone

Monteleone’s Submerged looked amazingly promising on the surface. A sunken Nazi U-boat that isn’t listed on any documents from the war, a secret German mission, and a hidden Nazi base under the ice of Greenland. I’m happy to report that Submerged was all that I hoped it would be and much more. Dex, an ex-NavyContinue reading “Submerged – Thomas Monteleone”
