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”

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”

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”

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”

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”
