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”

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”

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”
