Full Throttle by Joe Hill

I was thrilled to get Full Throttle in the post for reviewing for a number of reasons, one it contained two stories co authored with his father – the great Stephen King, and two I personally felt a little short changed by his novella collection Strange Weather – there were two remarkable stories in there,

BOOK REVIEW: The Other Lives by Adrian J Walker

Adrian J Walker is back, following up on his wonderful dystopian novel THE LAST DOG ON EARTH with THE OTHER LIVES. This one is harder to place in a genre but no less entertaining and thought provoking. I’d summarise it as a metaphysical meditation on the current woes of British society wrapped up in a

BOOK REVIEW: Elevation by Stephen King

Elevation is a great book. It is of course written by the master of horror Stephen King, so we are already quite excited about what is on offer, but with Elevation we have King at his oh so weird and oh so pleasant. Elevation is not a straight out horror, let me get that on
