Author Nick Lennon-Barrett’s new book series (Murder for Social Media) has launched. He just finished releasing his DCI Fenton Murder Trilogy (Murder for Political Correctness, Murder for Health and Fitness, and Murder for Social Media) which I missed on publication, so I jumped on the chance to begin this series at its inception. Reality Bites […]
Author Jon Athan has been on my radar for a while now. As an independent author, he’s been releasing attractive new editions onto the market that focus on extreme horror fiction. When I found out I’d be reviewing his 49th novel, I paused, wondering how the quality would stack up. This author is most definitely […]
I’ve said this during other reviews, but the short story form is my favorite length of fiction, particularly in the horror genre. The problem with releasing this form as a standalone story in digital, is the fact rise in self-publishing platforms have allowed for the devaluation of all literature. How does an author price a […]
Adam Bender has successfully delivered a hilarious futuristic vision that mirrors our current political and social upheaval in his latest book, Utopia PR.
Dark Minds Press and author C.C. Adams latest release is an intriguing short read. The story follows newlyweds Dennis and Olivia as they begin their seemingly picture-perfect life together. But sometimes outside forces can disintegrate even the best relationships.
Cooking For Cannibals is my first experience with a Rich Leder novel and I was not disappointed. To restrict this book to a genre is impossible.

Following up Rory Michaelson’s debut novel, Lesser Known Monsters, comes the The Little Book of Lesser Known Monsters, a companion short story collection that is set within the same world as the novel. I was the reviewer covering the novel, giving it four stars, back in October 2020. So I was eager to check in […]
The first tale in Tom G.H. Adams’ new series Tales from the Abyssal Black introduced readers to an otherworldly library of stories forged from souls. The lead character in this series is a seeker, an apprentice, who now is tasked with the responsibility of reading stories of each soul’s passing collected in this library. And […]
Ouch by Pug Grumble is a strange book to classify. It’s been marketed by the author as “a comical and quirky love triangle between a masochist, a sadist, and a klutz.” It’s definitely quirky and contains very PG-humor throughout, which should appeal to many readers. At its heart, this book is a character-driven story featuring […]
If there is one author I’d point to in the entire realm of dark fiction that epitomizes independence in writing, it would Greg F. Gifune. I know his history quite well. I was his main publisher for more than 15 years with Delirium Books and DarkFuse. Our days go back to writing alongside one another […]
