The Lost – Jack Ketchum

Right off the bat, The Lost starts with a bang (pardon the pun). Ray was a nutcase when he was a teenager and blew two girls away that were camping. His two friends, Tim and Jennifer, were sheep when they watched him do it and just stood there with their mouths open. They didn’t turnContinue reading “The Lost – Jack Ketchum”

Savages – Greg Gifune

  Greg Gifune has outdone himself yet again. He has established himself firmly as one of the finest horror authors out there and anyone that has read my reviews knows that he’s definitely one of my favorites. Simply put, I have yet to read anything mediocre by him. If he has a clunker in hisContinue reading “Savages – Greg Gifune”

Resurrection – Tim Curran

  The rain kept falling and falling and falling…and like the rain, the story kept going and going and…well, you get the idea. This one ran the gamut with me, good and bad. Resurrection is listed as a Zombie Epic and you better believe it when they say epic. The problem was that it wasContinue reading “Resurrection – Tim Curran”

In Perpetuity – Tim Lebbon

  The latest from Tim Lebbon, In Perpetuity, is a murky fantasy tale cloaked with shades of horror. A father and his son, Sammy, enter a strange store that they’ve never seen before. Inside, Sammy is taken away by a man that goes by the moniker, The Keeper, and demands that the father go outContinue reading “In Perpetuity – Tim Lebbon”

The Covenant – John Everson

  A covenant is an agreement between two parties to either do or not do something. If the word covenant sounds old and slightly sinister, you’re starting to get a feel of where the story is going. Joe is a young newspaper reporter that is escaping heartbreak and loss from the mean streets of ChicagoContinue reading “The Covenant – John Everson”

Gods & Monsters – Gord Rollo

Let’s get right into this one: Divine Intervention – A priest has lost his faith and is looking for a sign. Be careful what you wish for. Not really my bag. It didn’t do much for me. 2 1/2 stars out of 5 Chamber of the Gods – Lovecraftian-influenced tale about a commercial pilot thatContinue reading “Gods & Monsters – Gord Rollo”

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”

Tortures of the Damned – Hunter Shea

   The horror/sci-fi genre has experienced a huge boom in post-apocalyptic stories in the last decade. Many are thanks to Brian Keene and The Walking Dead making zombies the popular choice, these days, and it shows. The market is over saturated with zombie books – some good, but most are meh…seen it, done it, readContinue reading “Tortures of the Damned – Hunter Shea”

Long Black Coffin – Tim Curran

Damn, damn, damn. Now THAT was how you do horror. Tim Curran’s Long Black Coffin actually gave me shivers – yes, shivers – and that’s something that hasn’t happened in a very long time. Long Black Coffin is a working class ghost story set in a small town in Wisconsin. Johnny Breede is your typicalContinue reading “Long Black Coffin – Tim Curran”
