Book Review: World War of the Dead – Author Eric S. Brown


WORLD WAR OF THE DEAD Written by Eric S. Brown Published by Coscom Entertainment Publication Date: 2009 Format: B&W – 144 Pages Price: $13.99 I first became a fan of Eric Brown’s work while reading Season of Rot. The action was so vivid, the violence so graphic, and the sweet despair almost palatable, how could a horror fiend such as I resist?

Book Review: Vampires in Pimptown – Author James H. Lucas


James H. Lucas is a funny guy. The first novel of his I read (An Undead Wedding) managed to poke fun at nearly everything you could think of about weddings and, well, the undead.

Once I got home and dug into it I chuckled to the very … Continue reading
