Typically I review full novels, but I just finished a novella that blew me away and I just had to preach about it for a bit. The novelette in question is Bloodchild by Octavia E. Butler.

Scream Read-A-Like

It has been 11 years since Ghostface's last appearance. But after sharping his knife collection and compiling more phone numbers, he is back. I am a sucker for slashers.

I asked for Lovecraftian, I got one hell of a Lovecraftian read. The Cosmology of Monsters by Shaun Hamill follows the Turner family and the misfortunes that befall... Continue Reading →

Page Turner: Hex

What I got was a decent enough read but one I will most likely forget by the end of the year. Hex... Continue Reading →
