Book Review: Eden: Crusade – Author Tony Monchinski

eden-crusade

Eden: Crusade is the follow up to Tony Monchinski’s first popular Eden novel. It features several important and well known characters (big bad Bear, pregnant Julie, feisty Gwen, movie-loving Mickey, and the once proud and strong Buddy) from the first installment as well as the same flesh hungry hordes of ravenous undead. Like the first it is told in a jumbled up sequence that seems a little disorienting until the entire story … Continue reading

THE TRINITY SECRET

In this latest release from the team of Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman, we look at the mysteries of the number 3. More importantly, its seemingly metaphysical characteristics that bridge over into religion, historical data and our past which has this certain affinity with the idea of tri and its many related classifications.

The book takes a hard look “rightly so” in its first chapter at Christianity and … Continue reading

Book Review: East Asian Cinema – Author David Carter

east_asian_cinema_small[1]

Another compact edition of Kamera Books that is focused on Asian filmmaking comes per way of “East Asian Cinema” written by David Carter. The book is a bit more rooted in Asian historics and culture than some of Kamera’s other books. This could be a plus or minus depending on your perspective. The focus here though is specifically the directors and films within the East Asian region. So they are not entirely … Continue reading

Book Review: Eleven Twenty Three – Author Jason S. Hornsby

Eleven-Twenty-Three[1]

I read a wide variety of independent fiction. I’m addicted to it. I have stacks and stacks of independent horror, zombie, and bizarro books that could really cause physical harm if they tip over. These books entertain me, they entrance me, they inspire me, and they are my escape. There is one thing that none of them have done yet though. As someone who reads dark and writes even darker, I don’t … Continue reading

To prove … Continue reading
