In 1981, Thomas Harris wrote a novel entitled “Red Dragon” and a monster was created. I’m not just referring to the character of Hannibal Lecter — who went on to star in three more Harris novels, most famously “The Silence Of the Lambs” — but the official birth of … Continue reading

Book Review: A Host Of Shadows – Author Harry Shannon

A Host Of Shadows_sm

A Host Of ShadowsHarry Shannon

“Everyone carries a shadow,” wrote analyst Carl Jung, “and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.”

Few of us see the shadow with any clarity. Turn around for a peek, it slips away. Our violent, sexually tinged fantasies are indulged regularly in darkened theaters, savored in eerie prose, celebrated in song, … Continue reading

Book Review: Morning is Dead – Author Andersen Prunty


Written by Andersen Prunty
Published by: Grindhouse Press
Publication Date: 2010
Format: Black / White – 150 pages
Price: $12.95

Rarely are readers of horror given the opportunity to laugh while wanting to throw up in their mouths a little bit. “Zombie” fiction (and the term should be used lightly here, as the lumbering corpses are never referred to as capital Zs) tends to lean more towards … Continue reading

If anything is evident in modern culture, it’s that the discussions of God, science, Darwin and the meaning of life have risen to the forefront. This aspect has found it’s way into authors, films, and heavy radio discussion that all seem to root back to a basic … Continue reading

Book Review: Hiram Grange and the Digital Eucharist – Author Robert Davies


Robert Davies’s writing is more than just prose, more than words strung into sentences woven into ideas. More akin to poetry, his words ooze into one another, vibrating with beauty and horror in the dank pits of excavated body cavities. Continue reading

Book Review: Hiram Grange and the 12 Little Hitlers – Author Scott Christian Carr


Scott Christian Carr has balls. Big, hairy, hyper-inflated balls that he doesn’t mind showing off at every opportunity. Anyone who is willing to throw the attack on the Twin Towers and baby tentacle-rape at the reader in the friggin prologue has to. He doesn’t hold back anything and the effect is tremendous. By 7 pages in, you know that nothing and noone is safe from this man and his horrific dreams where laughter is mixed with blood-tainted vomit.

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Book Review: Futile Efforts – Author Tom Piccirilli



Futile Efforts

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
