Not since Discworld have I laughed so much about Death. Unlike Pratchett’s most famous character, there are many Deaths. They can’t be everywhere at once, you know, it’s not like they are Santa Claus. A Death In Toledo by Frank J. Edler is a very fresh take on the business side of Death. Like any […]
Author Nick Lennon-Barrett’s new book series (Murder for Social Media) has launched.

Adam Bender has successfully delivered a hilarious futuristic vision that mirrors our current political and social upheaval in his latest book, Utopia PR.
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. It’s dark throughout, but contains social satire, horror, thriller, mystery, black humor and even romance. It’s all bizarrely mixed, but quite effective in combining key ingredients of all these […]

Joining the proud ranks of Bryan Smith’s Some Crazy F**king S**t that Happened One Day and Carlton Mellick III’s Cannibals of Candyland and other books […]
Ouch by Pug Grumble is a strange book to classify.

At its heart, this book is a character-driven story featuring […]
