The Things We Cannot Say by Mitch Sebourn

Mitch Sebourn is a must read for me, his work is so unique and a breath of fresh air to the horror / dark fiction genre. The Things We Cannot Say takes all the brilliance of his previous work (that I’ve read) and adds a tonne more brilliance. This story in particular focuses on possession,

Salvation Spring by TC Parker

I’m a huge fan of westerns, they remind me of lazy Sunday afternoons with my father, we’d watch them all – the good, the bad and the ugly (pun intended).

Misery by Stephen King – The Folio Society Special Edition

Misery by Stephen King is a great book, actually it’s damn near masterful. It’s more than what first meets the eye; Misery is a deeply rich study of pain. It’s also on the other hand a rich craft book – odd I know, but with our main protagonist Paul Sheldon being a writer who has

The West Lighthouse is the taller of the two, a simple structure that is pleasing in its symmetry, a tower of patchwork stone. The original oil-fuelled beacon that once guided sailors safely to the pier was later replaced by electricity, but even that has long-since burned out. Now all that can be seen is the

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
