Book Review: The Pitt Bull and Other Tales – Author Tom Hamilton

pitbullandother-tales

The Pitt Bull and Other Tales
Author: Tom Hamilton

As of late, self publishing in Ebooks seems to be the way to go for most aspiring authors. Unfortunately, this has lead to a huge influx of literature that doesn’t really have any place being published either because it simply fails as entertaining or is so wrought with spelling and grammatical errors that it becomes unreadable. Such is the case with Mr. Hamilton’s The … Continue reading

Book Review: The Paranormal Equation – Author James D. Stein

paranormal-equation

You can’t help but wonder with a firm sense of curiosity what entails within a book that is titled “Paranormal Equation”. For one, my experience in metaphysical books is that science and paranormal tend to not agree with each other. One group bases on fact, while the other requires a certain amount of spiritual embracing. Author James D. Stein, is no stranger to this conflict himself. You might say he is a welcome hybrid … Continue reading

Book Review: Beyond the Power of Your Subconcious Mind – Author C. James Jensen

Beyond+The+Power+of+Your+Subconscious+Mind

I know what your thinking…why is a “psychological help book” appearing on a horror site? Well, for one, we take on all sorts of metaphysical psychological and paranormal subjects under review. When it comes to layering the mind or injecting thoughts that produce life changing results, we tend to lump “those” books into this often expansive category. As a book reviewer, I’m most interesting in these aspects of the genre and the relational genre. … Continue reading

Book Review: Tales from Lovecraft Middle School 1: Professor Gargoyle – Author Charles Gilman

Tales from Lovecraft Middle School: Professor Gargoyle
by Charles Gilman
Quirk Books

“Hang on a second,” Glenn said, “I’m going to tell you a story.” He flipped to a passage in the middle of the book. “Deph-pha. Ctzelzog. Enorhula-tu.” He was stumbling over the words; they were impossible to pronounce. “Is this French or something? Who talks this way?”

Arguably, Lovecraft’s menagerie of goopy-grimy betentacled and befouled beasties are on … Continue reading

Since its initial launch in 2008, Dead Space has sold over 4.5 million units.

To coincide with the highly-anticipated release of Dead Space 3, Titan Books has published The … Continue reading

Book Review: The Burning Time – Author JG Faherty

THE BURNING TIME
By: JG FAHERTY
Journalstone Publishing

I’ve had the honor and privilege of reading two of author JG Faherty’s previous works in The Ghosts of Coronado Bay and The Cemetery Club. I must confess I’ve every bit of a fan as I am of Stephen King, Dean Koontz or Clive Barker. Despite Journalstone’s mandate to focus upon relative unknown, independent authors and showcasing their talents much of their product is … Continue reading

Book Review: Stripped – Author G. Elmer Munson

stripped-g-elmer-munson-paperback-cover-art

What a ride! I put off reading Stripped entirely due to its cover, I had other books to read and it seemed like it would be my least favorite judging by the cover (yes, once again I learn you shouldn’t do that) but once I started it had me hooked right from the start and I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. Two days to finish a full length novel is unheard … Continue reading

Book Review: Infected – Author William Vitka

Infected-Author-William-Vitka

Let me start off with a short tale of my own. It took me a bit of time and patience to receive this book from Mr. Vitka’s publisher. While waiting for the book Mr. Vitka and I actually became email buddies. The book took so much time, in fact, that Mr. Vitka was nice enough to actually purchase me a copy with his hard earned author-dollars. The funny part is the day after Mr. … Continue reading

Book Review: Helloween – Author Samantha Combs

SamanthaCombs-Helloween-Book

If you were to ask me what horror is I’d probably say something about nude teens being chased by a boogeyman armed with some form of weapon who is out to give his fans (since who really cheers for the teens anyway) a show with a high death count, exaggerated gore, goose bump raising suspense, and tons of jump scares. It’s all in great fun. The killers are over the top, the teens are … Continue reading
