Just when a glimmer of hope seems to illuminate in restoring some normal society, Xander MacNamara finds himself engulfed in turmoil once again.

â€śWhat is that?â€ť I whispered.
â€śLooks like an ears,â€ť the Colonel replied, staring at the globby thing by his foot.
â€śNo, not specifically, Colonel.â€ť I swallowed and swayed. â€śWhat is that, in general?â€ť
â€śA dead body.â€ť The Colonel snorted. â€śOr parts there of.â€ť
Usually, I am pretty clear on how I feel about … Continue reading
Ever since reading Gabino Iglesiasâ€™ Gutmouth, Iâ€™ve been more and more interested in the New Bizarro Author Series (NBAS for short) put together by Eraserhead Press. Without beating a dead horse, what they do is give a chance to promising new authors who havenâ€™t yet published their first novel.
With five to seven releases each year, we get a fresh taste of weird and wild writers we may or may not have already been … Continue reading
Whatever gods are in this maze, may you suffer as we have suffered. May our prayers leave you ill and dying, as you have left us.
I like bizarre, complicated stories. The kind that warp and wrap themselves into intricate designs of opaque obscurity and leave you scratching your head and rereading the same paragraph thirteen times to be sure what you think happened really did just happen and … Continue reading
Movie reference books are a horror fan’s gold. Most every horror fan fills their book shelves with tome after tome of gems about Hammer Films, Universal Monsters, Vampire Films, Zombie Movies. There are books on every topic, sub-genre and fan favorite out there. HIDDEN HORROR edited by author Dr. AC is an excellent, entertaining, intimate addition to the monster movie lover’s coffee table book collection. The book dives into 101 often overlooked and … Continue reading
I really liked the writing I found in Sixty Five Stirrup Iron Road, the nine author collaboration put out by Sinister Grin Press at the end of last year. So much so, in fact, that I decided to check out some of the contributing authorsâ€™ other books, hoping for more of the same. My first stop was Shane McKenzieâ€™s Muerte Con Carne, and it was everything I hoped it would be and much, much more. … Continue reading
My first encounter with the writing of Jessica McHugh showed me an inventive horror short story called Food For Thought. Turns out, thatâ€™s just a tiny part of the McHughniverse. Thereâ€™s also Pins, a suspenseful dark thriller involving strip clubs and bowling alleys. Thereâ€™s the young adult mystery/thriller, Rabbits in the Garden. Thereâ€™s her trip into the world of steampunk, The Maiden Voyage. And in August, sheâ€™ll be dropping a sci-fi mind-melting experience of … Continue reading
When youâ€™re a horror writer, and blurbs for your book are being written by Jack Ketchum and Edward Lee, you know youâ€™re doing something right. This is definitely the case with Shane McKenzie, a writer who is absolutely tearing up the extreme horror landscape. The guy has written twelve books (at least, maybe more by the time I finish writing this review), not to mention at least two collaborations with other authors (Sixty-Five Stirrup … Continue reading
The spirit of D.I.Y. is alive and well within the pages of Jack Bantryâ€™s Splatterpunk, but just because it has the look of an old cut and paste style, made in your basement, punk zine doesnâ€™t mean itâ€™s lacking in quality. The complete opposite, actually; these forty pages are packed with great in your face, extreme horror fiction. Not only that, but we also get some interviews, some book reviews, and a little bit … Continue reading
With his newest release, Toxicity, Max Booth III has taken a break from the wild western zombies of Black as well as the flash fiction of They Might Be Demons and thrown us into the complex, nasty world of the suburbs of Chicago. Having grown up there, I can vouch for this; they are truly frightening, indeed.
The world he shows us is one full of trashy scumbags and bad criminals, down on their … Continue reading
We all love zombies. We all subconsciously want to live long enough to see the apocalypse rising, so that we can get in touch with our own heroic self hidden somewhere deep inside our hearts and minds. Itâ€™s every boyâ€™s dream and every girlâ€™s horrible nightmare. Or so Jeremy Terry leads us to believe. Introducing a palette of characters entwined together with invisible strings of destiny, which mostly die a gruesome death as the … Continue reading
Book Review: The Zombie Film: From White Zombie to World War Z – Authors Alain Silver | James Ursini
Despite the last few years being pretty busy in the zombie publishing industry, This 384 page color book is more than a welcome new edition easily put many of the others to shame. In first look, it’s filled with a number of great color photos on every page (450!!) with … Continue reading
I say this with complete honesty, “The Handy Science Answer Book” may be just one of the most interesting all around reads for any occasion. Whether you are a student, a professor, a trivia wiz or just a curious reader looking for quick information about subjects that might escape you, this book is really a treat in surprise.
Packed full of tidbits of information, the science book tackles short snippets of information about “everything … Continue reading
Those 3 words that seem to re-surface time and time again should be plenty well familiar to us by now. It seems that as long as we are forced to stay in the dark on UFO reports and strange sightings that suggest otherwise, it is the voice of authors and publishers that continue to present the evidence and stories usually kept under wrap.
Visible Ink has long been one of those provides in the … Continue reading
The thing I really like about the stories of author P.A. Douglas, whether it be his Lovecraftian The Old One or his anti-establishment, bizarro novel Cucumber Punk, is that he knows how to hook you from the start and then keep your interest levels high all the way through to the final page. With The Remnant: Into the Collision, Douglas shows heâ€™s only getting better with his sharp hooks and tension building devices.
In … Continue reading
First things first, Sixty-Five Stirrup Iron Road is bigger than your average horror novel. When fellow author Tom Piccirilli (four time Bram Stoker award winner, author of The Last Kind Words, A Choir of Ill Children, etcâ€¦) ran into health problems and subsequent medical bills, some friends decided to lend a hand. And what better way to raise money than write a book and donate the profits to the cause? So, what we have … Continue reading
â€śYou never think of that crap do you? Civilization man. We take a lot of things for granted,â€ť Punch.
Life goes on for the small society that has come to know one another as family after the zombie apocalypse. While Flex, Gem, Hemp, Charlie, Trina and Taylor cope living in a world surrounded by rotters … Continue reading
To stand out in the indie publishing world, you not only have to put out quality work, but you often have to do something to grab peopleâ€™s attention and get your name remembered. Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing (or PMMP, as the kids might be calling them) is doing just that, with a relatively new series theyâ€™re calling One-Night Stands. Rather than putting out a collection of various authorsâ€™ short stories, they are instead releasing … Continue reading
The Drunken Exorcist is the incredibly short tale of Father Schnitt, an exorcist who is drunk. I know, who could have seen that coming, eh. He found out early in his career 1.) that gentle, talk-based … Continue reading
A collection of sixteen tales with a common theme surrounding the twisted, macabre and often sinister tendencies in post-apocalyptic times:
