A Classic Corner Book Review: Metzengerstein by Edgar Allan Poe

What an amazing dark, weird short, short story.

A Classic Corner Book Review: The Night Shift by Stephen King

Title: The Night Shift By: Stephen King Genre: Horror Rating: 4.5/5 If my skin wasn't crawling or my heart wasn't racing, then I was cringing. This was a hell of a short story collection. At some points, you can tell this was a collection of King's earlier works. But then at other times, it seemed ...

Book Review: One Rainy Night By Richard Laymon

One Rainy Night By: Richard Laymon 5/5 stars The death of a Haitian teen leaves a town in turmoil. The night after a boy's death, it begins to rain. Black rain. Whenever the residents come into contact with the precipitation, they turn into homicidal, sex crazed maniacs. I loved this story. It is what I ...

Book Review: The Vampire of Downing Street and Other Stories by Amy Cross

  The Vampire of Downing Street and Other Stories By: Amy Cross Genre: Horror, short story collection Rating: 3/5 stars From the title, I thought I was digging into a raunchy, modern day collection of short stories based around a vampire. I've been looking for these lately. But only one of the stories fit that ...

Book Review: Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

I listened this on Audible and was hooked until the end. 

Book Review: Alphabet Soup: Horror Stories for the Tormented Soul By Tobias Wade and Others

Alphabet Soup: Horror Stories for the Tormented Soul By: Tobias Wade and many others 3.5/5 This is a collection of horror stories that tie together in the end. Each story has a theme that begins with a letter in the English alphabet. Some of the letters didn't fit with the main plot. If they did, ...

Book Review: Blood in a Box by Foster Medina

Title: Blood in a Box Author: Foster Medina Rating: 4/5 stars A super freaky read. Characterization was on point and the fetishes explored were beyond insane (I won't say what they are, but trust me it's twisted). Five people are stuck on an elevator for the weekend. Pretty straight forward right? Sounds familiar? Well this ...

Book Review: Twisted By Uvi Poznansky

Twisted  By Uvi Poznansky 3/5 stars This was a beautifully written piece of literary fiction. Dark? Not so much. Twisted is a collection of short stories that makes one ponder about their existence, choices, and life. Along with the stories comes a poem (I'm not into poetry so I don't feel comfortable reviewing it) and ...

The Classic Corner: A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

Every now again, I indulge in the classics. Well, they're classics to me. If I thoroughly enjoy it, I will post a short review for it. This time around, I'm going to share my thoughts on A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. Yes, I posted this to Goodreads and in my Facebook group already (duh). ...

Book Review: Awaken by Zach Bohannon

Awaken by Zach Bohannon 3.5/5 stars This was a decent short story. It was full of the things I love in my horror stories: action and gore. The MC awakes (haha the title) in a place where he didn’t fall asleep. Unware of what’s going on around him, he’s only sure of one thing: get ...
