Reviewed by Sadie “Mother Horror”Hartmann

It’s tricky to review a short story of just thirty-two pages. My primary objectives here are to make readers aware of this title, and to praise the work of James Newman.

The Lost Memories of Freddy Frehling is a story about the feelings adult children have for their parents. Continue Reading

Review: Fishing by P. Gardner Goldsmith

Shadowridge Press (February 2017)
132 pages; $10.99 paperback
Reviewed by Kevin Lucia

P. Gardner Goldsmith’s Fishing is a hallucinatory, Kafka-esque, surreal ride which invokes reflections of Charles Beaumont and Rod Serling by way of Ray Garton and even Richard Laymon. Gardner’s terse, tightly-controlled prose thrums with drive and energy, and even though it’s precise and efficient, it occasionally breaks out into a lyricism invoking ghosts of Ray Bradbury himself.Continue Reading

I like that the synopsis of White Pines is short and ambiguous. I’d like to leave it that way. I’m going to do my best to share my reading experience without disclosing important plot details in order to protect “reader discovery.”Continue Reading

New Praise for The Notch by Tom Holland: First Novel Ever by director and screenwriter of Fright Night and the original Child’s Play!

We’re very pleased to share some recent praise for The Notch by Tom Holland, the very first novel ever by the director and screenwriter of Fright Night and the original Child’s Play, which is in-stock and ready to ship now:

“Tom Holland has always been a first-rate storyteller, whose work mingles a wicked vision of evil with a welcome element of humanity. By turns scary, funny and moving, The Notch is a horror novel that will make you remember sitting up until dawn to finish a book, because you’ll be doing it all over again.”
 — Clive Barker, writer/director of Hellraiser

“Tom Holland’s The Notch is his first novel, but you wouldn’t know it from this strange and wondrous book.”
 — John Landis, writer/director of The Blues Brothers

“Tom Holland weaves a thrilling and suspenseful novel that feels more and more relevant as the days go on.  A fun story with hints of The Stand and Carrie, the story takes us to a world of greed, paranoia and the approach of a worldwide epidemic through the eyes of a small boy whose powers can have global consequences.”
— Greg Nicotero, Director/Executive Producer of The Walking Dead and Creepshow

“All of us start with a What If question and let our imaginations roam. Tom Holland has created a character that does one better: he stirs the what if in the mind of the readers with The Notch. It is truly the kind of novel that gets the reader to be part of the story. There is nothing like turning a page in your own mind.”
— Andrew Neiderman, author of The Devil’s Advocate and the V.C Andrews novels

“With The Notch, Tom Holland shows that he is as distinguished a storyteller on the page as he is on the screen. His novel, with echoes of Stephen King’s The Stand, is a mysterious, horrifying, and imaginative adventure tale that will keep you turning the pages.”
— Mick Garris, Creator/Producer of Masters of Horror

It’s amazing how quickly nature overcomes what man has built. During quarantine, I’ve spent hours walking paths in the woods I haven’t for years, visiting old camping spots, and one spot in particular: a clearing near a creek where, five years ago, we built a fire pit with cinder-blocks, erected a small, portable charcoal grill, and built several wooden tables and chairs.Continue Reading

I’m going to go with total honesty and transparency by revealing that I didn’t know who Mick Garris even was when I accepted the review copy from the team at Cinestate/FANGORIA. I just read whatever they give me because it’s always entertaining; if not amazing.

After finishing the first three stories of These Evil Things We Do and feeling totally blown away by how much I had enjoyed them, I decided to look this Mick Garris guy up on Google.

Oh.

Mick Garris is kind of a big deal.Continue Reading

If you’ve read doungjai gam’s glass slipper dreams, shattered and savored that collection’s wonderfully  raw emotion, then her recent novella from Nightscape Press—llustrated by the immensely talented Luke Spooner—is a must buy. In it, gam takes all of the intensity and power of her verse and packs it into prose, weaving a highly emotional and devastating tale which will leave you gasping for breath and, quite possibly, weeping at its end.Continue Reading

Books on writing have been churned out by the dozens, and while many have been worthy reads, few have been standouts. In the horror genre, even fewer come to mind, although there are a few classics.

Joe Mynhardt has compiled a wonderful, useful, and frightening insight into the minds of some of the best dark minds writing today. It’s like someone tore straight into the souls of these authors and culled their best, and darkest secrets.Continue Reading
