What better mix than Nazis and the occult? Not much in the horror fiction world, in my opinion. The story takes place in the dense, mist enshrouded and unforgiving terrain of the Hürtgen Forest just inside the German border.  This forest was nicknamed the meat grinder by those who fought there. Allied forces are pushing forward and an elite team …Read More

A good psychological thriller should be traumatising. When a story has the power to make the reader understand the viewpoint of the characters – especially those of a fractured mind and perception – then it makes for an effective, harrowing experience. Granted, a good story and engaging writing is just as important; but accomplishing a …Read More

This is a collection of four short stories. The stories in this book don’t follow a common theme. They are totally different styles and that to me makes it even more interesting. You get a true picture of depth of talent this man has. I have included my feelings of each story in this collection. …Read More

Vampires have taken a beating lately due to recent movie and TV outings, making them weak and romantic. Thankfully vampire fiction is still strong due to the likes of Guillermo Del Toro and The Strain Trilogy. I decided to take a step back to the eighties, to a darker time in vampire tradition and read The Light at the End. This book …Read More

He gives them strict rules about what …Read More

Evil Eternal is an old-fashioned tale of Good vs Evil. We have the good represented by Father Michael, an immortal priest. The evil is represented by the demon, Cain (yes, the Cain who murdered his brother in the Bible.) The two warriors have clashed many times throughout human history leaving behind death and destruction every time they fought. After a brief set …Read More

I have said it before, and I will say it again, I think Dark Chapter Press are going to be a force to be reckoned with in the next few years. They put their heart and soul into the books they produce and it shows. Kids is one I was looking forward to because it …Read More

This is the second anthology I have read in recent weeks. I said with the last one that you either love them or hate them. Again my biggest problem is the fact that if they are loaded with stories it takes me a while to get through them because I tend to read a couple …Read More

Synopsis: Lakeview is a quiet enough town. It’s had its fair share of woes and its fair share of successes. A group of friends gather for a few drinks, a week before their 10th High School reunion, anticipating a night of drinks and laughs. They didn’t expect the werewolf. With seven people dead and four …Read More

I was delighted to get my hands on this one because I have heard many a good thing about Kevin Lucia’s writing but, embarrassingly, I have to admit to not reading any of his stuff before. I had no idea what this one was about so went at it completely blind. Did I like what …Read More

So Iain Rob Wright. I have been open and honest enough over this past couple of years to whole heartedly admit I love his stuff. I think he is a fantastic writer and one of Britain’s brightest talents. I know him personally as well. Some people would say this will always result in a biased …Read More

Duncan P Bradshaw. A name I have seen a lot of but never picked up anything he has written before. He very kindly asked if I would like to review a copy of his new book, Class Four (coming soon). I decided to give it a go and then discovered Class Three was loosely connected …Read More

I have not read a lot by Jason Parent, just his stories as part of the mighty crew that gave us the collections, Dead Roses: Five Dark Tales of Twisted Love and Bad Apples: Five Slices of Halloween Horror. I have known him for a while now and have to say he is a decent …Read More

I have never read anything by Duncan Ralston before. I always find that short story collections are a great way to introduce yourself to someone new. They give you a bit of variety of the writing style of the author. You can see very quickly where they intend to take their writing, and ultimately whether …Read More

Synopsis: Joe Fischer is the Sheriff in Gilson Creek in Maine. In 1997 he dealt with a series of deaths that were attributed to attacks by a mountain lion. Joe knew different. He should have dealt with the situation then, but didn’t. Seven years later, the beast is back. It only attacks when there is …Read More

This is the second anthology I have read from Dark Chapter Press. I know David Basnet had a lot of input into this one from an editing point of view so I was intrigued to find out how that worked out for him. Plus, I make no secret that I think Dark Chapter Press are …Read More

Posted on: May 27th, 2016

So, anthologies. You either love them or hate them. I love them from the point of view that sometimes they are full of authors that are totally new to you so you pick up some really cool new people to read. I hate them sometimes because I can find it difficult to finish them if …Read More

Synopsis: Courtney, Bethany, Meghan and Grace are four teenage friends. They act like any normal teenage girls. Nothing too malicious about them, but they do get into mischief from time to time. One night while hanging around in the local cemetery, they dislodge a three-hundred-year old statue that ultimately, falls completely over. They are too …Read More

Die-hard Psycho fans will know that Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 movie was based on the novel by Robert Bloch published in 1959. The screen and printed cult-classic hits lead Bloch to also write and release Psycho II (1982) and Psycho House (1990), two novels that had nothing to do with the movie sequels (II-IV). We know …Read More

My first memory of Slugs was as a child at the local video store. I would always gaze in wonderment at the shelves of forbidden horror movies, equally scared and excited by looking at the covers, my imagination running wild wondering what lay within. Seeing the Slugs VHS cover was particularly harrowing. It wasn’t until years later that …Read More

Originally published in an extremely limited and collectible hardcover, Brian Keene’s latest, The Complex, is now available in affordable paperback and e-book formats. For those who have been following Brian Keene’s podcast, The Horror Show With Brian Keene, you will know that The Complex is based on the very “colourful” inhabitants of the apartment complex …Read More

If you’ve ever read anything by Edward Lee or Wrath James White, you know what to expect. You know you’re going to get gore-a-plenty, depraved acts, sexual violence and outlandish scenes. With this book, Lee, along with co-author White, really pushes the envelope and tries to raise (lower?) the bar of his own standards of gross-out horror. Reclusive …Read More

Stephen King’s summer 2016 release offers his Constant Readers the conclusion in the detective Bill Hodges series that started with the excellent mystery-thriller Mr Mercedes in 2014. In Mr Mercedes, King diverges from spooks and scares to give us his tribute to hardboiled crime fiction and suspense that he also offered in the shorter works …Read More

Our story begins in the sweltering height of summer, with a trip for Gary; his older sister, Abby; and their mother, Martha, to a swimming pool. It’s nostalgic, as most of us have made that same trip as children, even down to the memory of painfully hot sun-heated car seats. The author provides a detailed …Read More

I couldn’t wait to get my teeth into this one because of a couple of reasons. I loved the cover. It’s a horror. It has motorbikes in it. And of course it’s from Sinister Grin. Never heard of Jason Murphy before and that is probably because it looks like this is his first book. How …Read More

Posted on: May 21st, 2016

Synopsis: Will Burgess is fifteen years old, living in Shadeland. It’s a place with a history. A couple of histories. One, the most famous serial killer in their part of the USA and two, a history that goes back hundreds of years concerning The Children who, legend has it, live in the caves that stretch …Read More

So I have only read one other thing by Jack Rollins and that was his story The Séance. It was set in the Victorian era. An era that I love reading books from. One thing I have noticed is there aren’t too many people capable of pulling off the particular style of prose needed to …Read More

Posted on: May 20th, 2016

Synopsis: Jamie lives in the mostly quiet seaside town of Hemsby. Not much for a fifteen-year-old to do during the summer other than spend the days in the local arcade playing video games. Jamie likes a particular type of game though. He is a retro expert and is close to completing every single level on …Read More

Posted on: May 20th, 2016

So I have only read one other thing by MrDaniel Marc Chant and that was his short story Conductive Salts which appeared in the anthology The Black Room Manuscripts, again from The Sinister Horror Company. I didn’t dislike the short story. I was half and half and rated it bang in the middle because I …Read More
