Slow Burn on Riverside by Chad Lutzke

Slow Burn on Riverside is a beautiful little book that is set in the same universe as The Same Deep Water As You (it’s in fact a prequel) which Chad himself said can be enjoyed as a standalone and reading it this way round you will also get to see character development and a fuller

Beasts of the Caliber Lodge by L.J. Dougherty

This was a thrilling little read, one that I enjoyed losing myself in, and it didn’t take long to fall under Dougherty’s spell and charming story – it was escapism and a story that didn’t take itself too seriously, which I feel is why I enjoyed it so much! You see I really enjoyed the

Severed by Joshua Marsella

Since I was little I’ve always had a fascination with the Vietnam War, I don’t know why, it probably has something to do with my father and his influence on me at a young age. We used to sit and watch so many war films (probably when I shouldn’t have been, I remember watching Full

LaRocca has exploded onto the scene with his debut novella Starving Ghosts In Every Thread and for me I couldn’t be happier for him and the reading / horror community because there is so much more this guy has to offer and I understand more coming soon

Girl on Fire by Gemma Amor

What a book… I did help format this book but my review is based on the fabulous writing that is held within the pages and not my involvement in the project (just for transparency I wanted to mention that small fact). Girl on Fire wastes no time and throwing the reader headlong into the story,

Dead Woman Scorned by Michael Clark

Every great story needs an origin story and what Clark has done here with Dead Woman Scorned (the follow-up book to his quite brilliant The Patience of a Dead Man) is something down right masterful. Not only has Clark been able to develop and add to his existing story of Tim and Holly – he’s

Seeing Things by Sonora Taylor

Seeing Things by Sonora Taylor is one hell of a creepy offering, one that is full of dread and menace but one which is also intrinsically beautiful in the macabre – this in part is due to the masterful storytelling one comes to expect from Taylor. Given her beautifully crafted vision that was Little Paranoias
