Book Review: Every Sigh, the End – Author Jason S. Hornsby

medium-462

As melancholy as it is hateful. Misanthropic. Nihilistic. Fatalistic. Paranoid. A direct assault on our society and ourselves. Admittedly a tad pretentious. Damn did I get a kick out of getting my brain munched on by this asshole.

Book Review: Science Was Wrong – Authors Stanton T. Friedman | Kathleen Marden

ScienceCoverSmall[1]

Can it be true? Is everything that we are fed not based on truth and does politics and agendas hold the real truth and motivation behind what we are led to believe? You betcha! Though those of us who are pro-active readers, have known that now for quite some time. However, its not too late to distill more facts and what they have led us to believe over the years. Authors Stanton … Continue reading

Book Review: Flowers In The Attic – Author Virginia Andrews

Flowers In The Attic film poster 1

Although she passed away in December 1986, Virginia Andrews‘ name lives on as one of the world’s biggest selling novelists, with over seventy million copies of her books and stories in print. Often described inaccurately as horror novels, her tales reveal the dark side of human nature, mixing Dickensian motivations with Gothic melodrama to create a hybrid fiction that has kept her worldwide audience (both male and female) on tenterhooks throughout … Continue reading

Book Review: Vampires in Pimptown – Author James H. Lucas

Vampires-in-Town

James H. Lucas is a funny guy. The first novel of his I read (An Undead Wedding) managed to poke fun at nearly everything you could think of about weddings and, well, the undead. Really everything between, as well. I chuckled out loud when I opened my mail and had the bright pink cover of Vampires in Pimptown staring back at me. Once I got home and dug into it I chuckled … Continue reading

Book Review: The Dead That Walk – Author Stephen Jones

The-Dead-that-Walk

Zombies are everywhere today (not literally, thankfully). Everywhere you turn you’ll find a new movie, video game, book, TV show, or comic book that features the undead flesh eaters. They have been a staple in the horror genre for decades and are as popular today as they were when a filmmaker named George A. Romero did a little movie about them in the 60’s. The Dead that Walk is a collection of … Continue reading

Book Review: Green Shadows, White Whale – Author Ray Bradbury

GSWW book cover 2

Writing about Ray Bradbury is a little like writing about the ocean – the entity is so vast you hardly know where to begin. Consider there are six billion humans on this planet, yet there is only one man, one name, that readers associate emotionally with one of the great explorations into the unknown. Back in 1987 a syndicated newspaper cartoon depicted a bleak landscape of Mars as we’ve come to know it close up, … Continue reading

Book Review: Hiram Grange and the Chosen One – Author Kevin Lucia

yhst

Several reviews of Hiram Grange and the Village of the Damned mentioned how tough it is to start a series, but I disagree. The person who starts it gets to set all the rules, they’re the one who sets the stage for everyone else that follows. With no expectations, they have free reign with the material, characters and their approach to dealing with them. Even the person writing the second one has … Continue reading

Book Review: Hiram Grange and the Nymphs of Krakow – Author Richard Wright

yhst-13511586845920_2112_0

Well, ye olde boyles and ghouls, this is it. The last chapter of the first volume, the last episode of the first season of Shroud’s flagship franchise: Hiram Grange. You know what you know by this point and your opinion of the series is likely already set (God knows I’ve made my own clear enough). The main question at this point is a simple one: Does Nymphs live up to the reputation? … Continue reading

Book Review: Arkham Asylum – Author Grant Morrison

Arkham Asylum 1

Since his creation, the Batman has undergone a variety of radical reassessments. From the camp parody version of the sixties, to the dark vigilante of the seventies, to the big-budgeted merchandising exercises of the nineties, finally to arrive in this new century with a film adaptation that seems to please both Batman fans and mainstream audiences alike. But the character was taken to new extremes by innovative Scottish writer Grant Morrison with the 1989 release … Continue reading

Futile Efforts
By Tom Piccirilli
Published: 2010
Publisher: Cemetery Dance Publications
Cost: $40

“The dog is chewing into his chest, about to crack through the breastbone and get to the thick meat of his heart inside. Lash took the little bastard in because it was shivering under an abandoned Chevy with six saturated tickets beneath a busted wiper, rain sluicing off the hood and running high in … Continue reading
