    Review of Whom The Gods Would Destroy by Brian Hodge

    My rating: 5 out of 5 stars An awe inspiring novella in the Lovecraft Mythos, told in a spare, clear voice that perfectly captures the Master’s intent, weaving science fact and science fiction into a tapestry of mind blowing horror. You’ll never look at the stars the same way again. Once again, Brian Hodge has proven himself to be one of the finest craftsmen working in the genre. (I read an ARC of this work from NetGalley)

    Review of A Stranger’s Grave by Craig Saunders

    My rating: 3 of 5 stars I picked up this book from Grand Mal Press back in February when it was offered for free at Smashwords. Thanks, Grand Mal! This is the story of an ex-convict starting up his new life as the caretaker of a cemetery. He meets a few people in the course of his new job. Some of them are not alive. At it’s heart, this is a ghost story. It takes a little while to figure that out, though. I did like the way in which the story was presented, with a few exceptions. There were chapters interspersed with the main narrative which would start off…
