Hell Shall Make You Fear Again

I recently read Hell Shall Make You Fear Again by Jack Finn. I really enjoyed it! Everyone knows that I love short stories and this book did not disappoint! The stories are a mix of nature, history, mythology, monsters, and the old ways—all of my favorite things. 

Our Black Hearts Beat As One

I love when an author surprises me. And that’s exactly what Brian Asman did with Our Black Hearts Beat as One. I’ve read some of his work, mostly horror and horror comedy. This was a different side of Brian Asman.

Haunted -Chuck Palahniuk

Haunted is a different kind of book. It’s dark, twisted, weird, disgusting, and graphic. Don’t read this if you don’t like descriptions of graphic violence and weird, sexual scenes…

Little Black Crimes

Little Black Crimes is the debut novel by author Nathaniel Blackhelm. It’s a collection of dark, gritty, and disturbing crime stories. Don’t read this before bed, especially if you live alone. You’ll never get to sleep! This book will fuck with your mind, and make you question what goes on in everyone’s mind – maybe even your own!   It’s […]

This One’s Gonna Hurt

I just finished plowing through This One’s Gonna Hurt, the second novel by Cody J. Thompson. (Check out our review of his debut novel, Bone Saw Serenade, if you haven’t already)  His first novel was a psychological thriller, This One’s Gonna Hurt is straight up no joke-slasher heaven!

Bone Saw Serenade

Bone Saw Serenade is a psychological thriller that takes place in Seattle. Two old friends from high school, Charlie and Emma, reunite after many years. Then one day Emma’s husband Eddie disappears.

Hark the Herald Angels Scream

Forget ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, Hark! The Herald Angels Scream is more my style. If you’re looking for a little blood guts and gore with your eggnog, then you must give this collection of short stories a try! 

The Return of the Living Elves

Brian Asman knows how to blend violence and gore with a bunch of laughs. In The Return of the Living Elves. Asman blends The Return of the Living Dead with Christmas. It’s the crossover story I never knew I needed…

Classic Horror Tales

Classic Horror Tales is filled with some of the greatest Gothic short horror stories you will ever read.  It has stories from the masters like Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, and H.P. Lovecraft.
