Lilith is an apocalyptic tale set both on an aircraft carrier and across the city of New York. It was nice to read a novel with such a wide scope and implications, since most of my recent reads have been in small-scale settings. The author has grand ambitions and sees them through well.

I usually steer clear of short story collections. I never feel invested, and if it has the makings of a good story, it’s over before you know it. Due to the length there is always a lack of depth. After having really enjoyed Tribesmen by Adam Cesare, I decided to take a punt on this …Read More

You can’t always judge a book by its cover, but with this one you can, and that’s a very good thing. Worms is a pretty short novella that you can rip through in a sitting or two. This is a good old creature feature that I don’t come across too often anymore. It immediately brought …Read More

Crowley’s Window begins with a young girl born with psychic powers …Read More
