The Majorettes by John Russo – Horror Novel Review

Format: Musty old mass market paperback Publisher: Pocket Books Publication Year: 1979 I tackled John Russo’s 1979 slasher novel The Majorettes as an experiment.

Stephen King Announces His Next Book: “11/22/63″

Good Lord! He’s written another one? I have been a Stephen King fan since the late 70s.
