Happy Holidays

Wow. Where has the time gone? Two years ago, I posted a horror Chrstmas story, Santa. It was one of my earliest works. My (oh my) do I have to say that times do change. I've written so much since then, made some new writing friends, adopted a penname and worked with many editors. I'm ...

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: 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 ...
