Lovecraft Country
Book Review

Lovecraft Country

“Soon to be an HBO Series!” Got to love those printed stickers on books. Now that the gripe is out of the way 😉 Lovecraft Country was low on the cosmic horror side of the Lovecraftian mythos, but high on the adventure and thrills. Matt Ruff sets his series of adventures in mid-50s USA, where …

Famished
Book Review

Famished

Famished is the second book centred around food that I’ve read this month, though this one couldn’t be more different from the other, a tantalising collection of short stories with a central theme of food/eating/feasting/consuming. I was given an advanced reading copy by Influx Press to review, and I was really pleased as I had …

The Hollow Gods
Book Review

The Hollow Gods

I received The Hollow Gods from Netgalley for an honest review. Based in current day North America, it follows Kai, Miya, and Mason as they uncover and unravel the mythology of the Dreamwalker and the cycle of missing girls. The main characters are introduced early on and motivations are made clear from the start though …

Swords v Cthulhu
Book Review

Swords v. Cthulhu

As a lover of both a good swashbuckle and the Cthulhu mythos I was immediately pulled to Swords v. Cthulhu when I saw it. One of my favourites was ‘Red Sails, Dark Moon’ by Andrew S. Fuller, Lovecraft and pirates meet in a wonderful tale of derring do and monstrous presence, brilliantly pulp in its …

Meddling Kids
Book Review

Meddling Kids

Scooby Doo meets Cthulhu, with a smattering of Evil Dead. I had great hopes for Meddling Kids being a rollicking read with loads of adventure an chthonic mysteries, and do you know what? It delivered! Ancient evils, intelligent dogs, creepy old people, friendly local sheriff, First Nation character, and reformed Jock, it had it all …

The Woman in Black
Book Review

The Woman In Black

The Woman in Black has always been a book that has been floating around my head as a book to read, talked about, mentioned when a good ghost story was required, but that I had never read, not even after the film with Daniel Radcliffe in it. This blog gives me an excellent excuse to …

The Sacrifice Box
Book Review

The Sacrifice Box

I have had The Sacrifice Box moving up my TBR pile over the last month or so, but it was immediately catapulted to the top on the advice of a fellow twitter user and I really didn’t regret pushing it up the list. I usually hate comparisons, but this book read like UK Stephen King …

Outside
Book Review

Outside

Ele lives Inside with The Others and is visited by Him, but dreams of The Outside which she only knows from a few books that are in The Tower with them. A tale of abuse, horror, fear, and redemption. Sarah Ann Juckes takes this tale into dark places that made it very difficult to read …
