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:

Before anything else is said, please note that both the title and cover art are at best uninspired and are not particularly representative of the contents. Remember what momma said about books and covers, dearhearts.
Craig Wallwork is a writer with skills, an author of two novels (To Die Upon a Kiss and the much celebrated The Sound of Loneliness) as well as a short story collection (Quintessence of Dust). In April of this year, Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing will be releasing his newest effort, a chapbook in the tradition of Creepshow and Tales From the Darkside, called Gory Hole: A Horror Triple Bill. Within these pages lay three … Continue reading
Sinister Grin Press is known for releasing some fantastically nasty, gruesome horror books from some equally fantastic and disturbing authors (Wrath James White, Nate Southard, Jack Ketchum, and Monica Oâ€™Rourke, to name just a few). So when I say that their newest release, Fantastic Earth Destroyer Ultra Plus, is an illustrated fairy tale for adults, donâ€™t get the wrong idea.
The story is written by Cameron Pierce, whoâ€™s not only the head honcho over … Continue reading
Horror writers beware! You know that idea for a story that has been kind of lingering in your head, the one where you take your favorite sub-genre of horror movie and turn it into a novel, and how excited you are because it hasnâ€™t really been done yet and itâ€™ll be your big splash into the horror fiction community? Well, … Continue reading

Hello, my name is Sean, and I sometimes suffer from what I have decided to call extreme hypochondria. Itâ€™s not a constant, and itâ€™s not something that affects my daily life, but it is there nonetheless. Itâ€™s not that I always think Iâ€™m sick; on the contrary, Iâ€™ve had a cough for what seems like months and Iâ€™m not … Continue reading
Sometimes I forget that there are big-time, majors in the world of book publishing, because it seems like everything good is coming out of the indies. Between the titles coming out of established indies like Lazy Fascist Press, Sinister Grin Press, and Samhain Publishing (just to name a few), and the high-quality work coming from â€śnew guysâ€ť like Broken River Books, … Continue reading
So many books and films have been made about high school reunions that it is hard to minimize their importance in the general culture of the United States. Itâ€™s almost an adult coming of age ritual, a time to face the joys and agonies … Continue reading
This is a wondrous book which needs to be purchased with the utmost urgency. An expansive, comprehensive and utterly engrossing work of cult film perfection, this is a definitive work on one of genre cinema’s greatest – and most debated – characters.
Covering the creation of the fabled Empire Studios, their own films and their pickup … Continue reading
When it comes to Carlton Mellick III, I have difficulty deciding where to start. Clusterf*ck is one of five books released in 2013 by one of the most prolific authors of our time (including the highly praised Quicksand House), alongside five additional re-releases. Mellick has now released over forty books and shows no signs of slowing. He is often considered the real world Kilgore Trout (revisit Kurt Vonnegutâ€™s works for that reference). The only thing … Continue reading

Society has certainly changed since the apocalypse. The few remaining humans in civilization have become either slaves or prey unto the reanimated corpses known as Evols. At the mercy of the undead one has the choice of either succumbing to the hands of zombies or becoming food.
Small town leader evol leader Soo-Yang strikes up a bargain with a messenger to go … Continue reading
Ronald Malfiâ€™s December Park is one of those books you canâ€™t put down. It is filled with more chilling moments than anything that has come as of late. The book is well written and the characters of Angie and his friends are full of life. Ronaldâ€™s work delivers one of those blows to the horror industry. Though, December Park is a thriller, it is considered to be one of the best I have read. There … Continue reading
