    {Review} The Last Mile by Tim Waggoner

    by Tim Waggoner Published by Darkfuse on Oct 21st 2014 Genres: Apocalyptic, Extreme Horror, Horror Pages: 140 pages Format: eARC Buy on Amazon Goodreads   A unique and compelling vision of a post-apocalyptic world, Tim Waggoner’s The Last Mile pits thrall-bound Dan versus sacrifice-to-be Alice. The former does what he has to do to keep his family alive; the latter just wants to survive and will do whatever it takes to stay that way. The Last Mile clearly comes from a rich (and deeply troubled) mind. The hints toward the world that exists beyond the limited view of its two principal characters are more than interesting – with the concept…

    {Review} The Amulet by Michael McDowell

    by Michael McDowell Published by Valancourt Books on 11/7/13 Genres: Dark Fiction, Fiction, Horror, Supernatural, Thriller Pages: 320 Format: eBook Buy on Amazon Goodreads This book was a good time! It contained all the good over-the-top-ness of 80’s horror. (Technically this book was originally published in 1979, but I’m calling it 80’s horror anyway. So sue me.) This is another book by Mr. McDowell that was allowed to go out of print, but was brought back by Valancourt Books. (Another being the phenomenal book, The Elementals. ) With an introduction by Poppy Z. Brite (which I recommend you read AFTER you’ve finished the book), this novel was a tasty treat…

For in the shadows reside a shade who will do anything to keep it out. Keane has been running from his nightmares for a long time. Can he get free of the darkness that follows him, or will he forever be caught in the abyss? This read started off strong and I was mesmerized by the story.

    by Stephen Kozeniewski Genres: Dystopian, Sci-Fi Format: eBook Buy on Amazon Goodreads   Another thoughtful read by Mr. Kozeniewski of William, a clone, who finds himself questioning his uniqueness in a world of duplicates obeying willingly and sacrificing themselves only to be scrapped and have the process start all over again. Will William evoke change or will he continue to be just another cog in the system in a society of greed to keep the money flowing? Don’t dwell too long on what’s on the pages of this book or you’ll find yourself questioning the motives of your employers and your own self-worth. Although this is not my normal type…

    {Review} Wild Fell by Michael Rowe

    by Michael Rowe Published by ChiZine on 12/10/13 Genres: Dark Fiction, Fiction, Horror, Supernatural, Thriller Pages: 300 Format: eBook Buy on Amazon Goodreads Since I read Enter, Night , I’ve been wanting to check out Wild Fell. I’m sorry that I waited so long! Wild Fell is told in such a unique manner , (I love that!), that it’s hard to tear yourself away. Normal day to day chores like cooking dinner, doing dishes and such, all fell by the wayside in favor of parking my butt on the couch,(or by the river on my lunch hour), to see where this novel would take me. It took me a number…
