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.

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”

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”

Monstrosity – Tim Curran

  You know a writer kicks ass when they can stretch your imagination to the point where, when you look back, you can’t believe how much of the story you were buying. Curran does that in spades with Monstrosity. Monstrosity takes your typical rural Midwest setting and turns it on its ear in this dystopicContinue reading “Monstrosity – Tim Curran”

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”

Ghost – J.N. Williamson

  Zach Doyle is pretty sure that he’s dead. He doesn’t remember dying or what might have caused it. He just knows that he’s stuck watching his wife and children go through their daily routines without being able to communicate with them. They can’t see him. They can’t hear him. Nor can they feel hisContinue reading “Ghost – J.N. Williamson”
