Exit Wounds Edited by Paul B. Kane & Marie O’Regan

It must be difficult to write a short story, especially if you’re used to writing big blockbusters, such as these renowned authors: Jeffery Deaver, Val McDermid and Lee Child to name a few. Keeping the plot tight, but still trying to offer the reader the suspense and thrill of a longer form but tightly woven

BOOK REVIEW: This Body’s Not Big Enough For The Both Of Us by Edgar Cantero

Well to say I was confused at the beginning, is an understatement. The first chapter is repeated three times offering three different explanations of the same event!! I won’t explain why; as it all becomes clear. This is a detective novel but by no means does it follow any traditional story line. It is exceptionally

BOOK REVIEW: Anno Dracula – One Thousand Monsters by Kim Newman

Book five of the much-lorded Anno Dracula series from Kim Newman and published by Titan books   Short review: More Gothic and Victorian literary intertextuality that you can shake a wooden stake at. Slicker than a tanto blade after seppuku with Nipponese references. Rich character driven plot, only faintly marred with staccato transitions into action
