Review: HELL HOUSE

Hell House By: Richard Matheson Genre: Horror I’ve seen the movie. Well, the movie the book inspired, THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE. Released in 1973 and starring Roddy McDowell (my pre-teen crush), it scared the hell out of me. So, recently, when looking for a scary book to keep me awake in the middle of […]

REVIEW: THE HISTORY MAKERS

Imagine what the world would be like if the ancient Azteca civilization was still alive and contemporary today. Imagine a world of stone pyramids, all-powerful priests, and a caste-system interspersed with iphones, fancy cars and DJ’s at parties. Imagine a handful of people who know the truth—the sun WILL rise tomorrow with or without a blood sacrifice. Now, imagine you’re a teenaged girl with high ranking. What would YOU do when you discover the truth?

REVIEW: Already Gone

Jake & Diane Reese are ordinary people. He’s a college professor and she’s an art dealer. What could be more mundane? However, things go from ordinary to outlandishly terrifying, in an instant, when Jake is attacked and two men cut off his ring finger, only to leave him bleeding and confused in a parking lot. Things go from bad to worse, however, when Diane goes missing and Jake is framed for murder.

Review: A Perfect Nightmare: A Novel

REVIEW: Suffer the Children

Suffer the Children By John Saul Genre: Horror If you keep up with my this blog, then you know I’m on a little bit of a John Saul ride. Even though the last book of his I read, Punish the Sinners, was far from my favorite book, I do like is latest efforts. So, I […]

REVIEW: Punish the Sinners

Punish the Sinners By John Saul Genre: Horror I have several favorite horror authors—my GO-TO set. Stephen King, Dean Koontz and John Saul. Although, to be truly honest, I really prefer Saul’s later work. Occasionally, however, I will choose to look back at some of John Saul’s earlier books. This is one. Like so many […]

Review: Father Mine

He worries. Is he a good enough man to be a father? Will he hurt his daughter? Will she be ashamed of who he is? Typical worries but not a typical guy. Z is macho personified with a teddy bear heart.
