The real witches of Salem fled here just before the Trials of 1692, and the place has been full of magic — the good and the bad kind — ever … Continue reading

Book Review: Possessed: Spine Tingling Tales from Ten Masters of Horror – Editor Nate Kenyon



The great advantage of the short story is that you can do one in a single sitting. A little shot of pure horror, down in one. None of this laboriously wading through another chapter every night only to discover that the monster was killed and good prevailed. And if you don’t like one author, then like a good bus service, another one will be along … Continue reading

Book Review: Bullets ‘Til Midnight – Author Draven Ames



Draven Ames chose an unconventional route, by allowing us to review his book before it even has an agent, knowing that we do not pull punches at Horror News Net. Bullets ‘Til Midnight is a strong debut novel. Judging from this first offering, he should be getting significant buzz in the near future.

Interesting, well-written characters abound, whether they be men, women, children or otherworldly. Michael … Continue reading

Book Review: The Real Men in Black – Author Nick Redfern



When I hear the term “men in black”, I am often reminded of film fare, paranoia and a simplified classification of government agencies who send out agents to investigate reports of interest. We certainly had our share of X-files, Millennium groups and tv show personnel who dressed in a similar manner that we knew what others were talking about when speaking of such characters.

However, I must … Continue reading

Book Review: Tales from the Crossroad – Editors David Niall Wilson, David Dodd

Book Review: Blood War – Author Dylan J. Morgan



The novel Blood War by Dylan J. Morgan is the second novel I have read by this up and coming author (Hosts was the first and it was excellent). First off I must say that Dylan J. Morgan has an excellent talent for writing and actually has a wonderful grasp on the English language, which is hard to find in today’s “slang-driven” society. His word choices are descriptive as well … Continue reading

Book Review: Horror Library Vol 4 – Editor R. J. Cavender



It’s that time again. Another review from me, what may I present to thee? Glad you asked. Horror Library Volume 4! The latest installment to the Horror Library series. The stories contained are far more scarier and downright disgusting. Normal people can’t read this, they don’t have the stomachs to, or are more of wimps. No one truly understands the written creations that have been contributed to this … Continue reading

Book Review: Zombies and Power Tools – Author Alan Spencer



I sit now, typing this review with smug satisfaction curling my lips into a smile. I’ve just finished reading Alan Spencer’s gore streaked zombie novel, Zombies and Power Tools, and I gotta say I’m impressed with his take on the walking dead. Mr. Spencer introduces us to a quiet little town and many of its inhabitants before cheerfully slaughtering damn near everyone. And did I mention the gore? … Continue reading
