“Frankenstein Lives Again” by Donald F. Glut – Horror Novel Review

Format: NookBook, Kindle, and other digital formats Publisher: Pulp 2.0 Press Publication Year: 197? I sooooo wanted to like this one. While I’ve never been able to slog through Mary Shelly’s original novel, I’ve long been a fan of the many incarnations of Frankenstein. From the moody black and white of the Universal classics, through … Continue reading »

Saga of the Swamp Thing, Volume 2: Horror Comic Review

When I recently re-read John Russo’s The Majorettes for the first time in decades, I realized that memory lane can be lined with broken glass, used syringes, and dog crap. In short, things aren’t always as good as you remember them. Fortunately, I’ve come across a creepy read from my past that has aged extremely … Continue reading »

Author Joe Hill at Granite State Comicon

I had the pleasure of meeting Joe Hill (real name: Joseph Hillstrom King) this past weekend at the Granite State Comicon in Manchester, NH (that’s him on the right and yours truly on the left). Hill is the author of the novels Horns and Heart Shaped Box, and in case you hadn’t already noticed the … Continue reading »

Down the Drain by Daniel Pyle – Horror Novelette Review

If the author’s bio at the end of the book is to be believed, Daniel Pyle has not not bathed since writing this story. He must be a stinky man indeed by now, but this 60 odd page novelette about man vs. man-eating bath tub may well put you off personal hygiene yourself. Bruce does … Continue reading »

Should We Judge This Book By Its Cover? – Part 3 – “Slob” by Rex Miller

Rex Miller’s Slob has been on my “oh, I should read that one” list since the early 90s or so. The book was mentioned in Twilight Zone magazine a lot back in the day, and was often sited as a prime example of the then budding fad of splatterpunk fiction, which was basically over the … Continue reading »

Zombies: The Recent Dead, Edited by Paula Guran, ANTHOLOGY REVIEW Part 9

Format: NOOKbook Publisher: Prime Books Publication Year: 2010 Every time I read something by David Schow I get the impression he is trying desperately to impress the reader with his flashy prose and vocabulary. In this case the very title of the story “Obsequy” (a funeral rite or ceremony) sent me scrambling for the dictionary. … Continue reading »

UR by Stephen King – Horror Novella Review

Format: Kindle Publisher: Storyville, LLC via Amazon Digital Services Publication Year: 2009 This was another first for me. Stephen King’s novella UR is available only as an ebook for the Kindle or an audio book. This makes sense, actually, because a Kindle is actually one of the main characters. I’m a Nook user, though, so … Continue reading »

Winds of Change by Jason Brannon – Horror Novella Review

Format: Nook Book Publisher: Permuted Press Publication Year: 2011 Yes, I’m having a love affair with my Nook. Some would say it’s a relationship that borders on the unnatural, but that’s a tale for another day. But what’s not to love? Online book shopping with instant gratification, prices ranging from reasonable to crazy cheap, and … Continue reading »

Should We Judge This Book By Its Cover? Part 2

Brian Keene has announced that his long out of print novella of apocalyptic horror Take the Long Way Home will be made available again soon through Deadite Press. As I did with Deadite’s re-release of Keene’s novel Urban Gothic, I thought it would be fun to show the book’s original cover side by side with … Continue reading »

A Lovecraft Knot? Oh R’lyeh?

Shamelessly swiped from Collegehumor.com, I’m looking forward to my next formal affair so I can give this a try. Click on the image for a closer look.
