‘The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger’ by Stephen King – Book review

Odds are, if you’re around my grandmother, you’ll find a Stephen King book within arm’s reach. One of her favorite series that King wrote was the Dark Tower novels. Being that I looked up to her so much, you could say that the franchise became my white whale… a goal that seemed so elusive to complete that I put it off …

To me, good books contain several of the following: an engaging writing style, characters I can empathize with (or at least wanna spend time with), interesting thoughts condensed into a line or two for easy quotation, some good humor, a story or stories that bring me back for more and constantly wanting to know what happens next, to put me …

How in the world would a seasoned horror fiend such as myself have such a horrific dream? The answer, my friends, is because the villains in this book are absolutely …

Dead Jack And The Pandemonium Device (2016) Book Review

Recently I read the short story Dead Jack and the Case of the Amorous Ogre by James Aquilone, the first story set in the Dead Jack universe. I fell completely in love with the world as well as with the undead detective and his homunculus partner, Oswald. That same day, I purchased the Kindle version of the first novel in the series, …

Elevator (2017) Comic Book Review

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved books with illustrations. Not only do you get a great story to read but you also have pictures to show what the author is trying to convey. Whoever thought of comic books was a royal genius. Whoever thought of horror comic books should be the ruler of the world. When Hocus Pocus …

Book Review – THE NAMELESS DARK by T.E. Grau

The philosopher Francis Bacon once wrote, “Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.” Into the last category falls T.E. Grau’s debut collection, The Nameless Dark.  The Nameless Dark is composed of 14 short stories in the “weird fiction” tradition, each dealing with the horrific and the unnamable. What is …
