Lovecraftian Book Recommendations

What is the spooky season, if not an excuse to binge read horror? I am a sucker for Lovecraftian horror. It is easily my favourite subgenre. They often discuss topics such as mental health, humanity and unspeakable evil. Not to mention how many authors these days use the subgenre to discuss real-world issues such as... Continue Reading →

I think I stumbled on a near-perfect Halloween read. Creepy monster? Check. Harvest time festivities with a body count? Check. Autumnal vibes with a hint of nostalgia? Check. Dark Harvest by Norman Partridge is a horror novel set in a backwater town with one hell of an annual tradition.  He goes by different names, October Boy,... Continue Reading →
