I know there are a lot of zombie books out there these days, and maybe you think the authors have run out of different ways to write about them. I really like zombie stories, but I will admit a lot of them have similar plots. Then I read Brian Pinkerton’s How I Started the Apocalypse, and was pleasantly surprised. This is a zombie tale told from the zombie’s point-of-view. But this isn’t a regular shambling … Continue reading

Book Review: Detritus – Editors S.S. Michaels | Kate Jonez

Detritus

Detritus, Edited by S.S. Michaels and Kate Jonez I’m a big fan of anthologies, and always look forward to new ones. Anthologies were big in the 80s, and I have a bunch on my shelf.

Book Review: Slay Bells Ringing – Edited by Jeff Chitty

SLAY BELLS RINGING Slay Bells Ringing is an anthology of Christmas-themed horror stories, most of which were written by first-time published authors. This is definitely not an anthology for children to read; quite a few of the stories were extremely violent or contained explicit sexual situations. Although some of the stories were good, the editing of this anthology needed a lot of work. Every story had typos, spelling and grammatical errors, and some even had … Continue reading
