BOOK REVIEW: Dark Avenging Angel by Catherine Cavendish

BOOK REVIEW: Dark Avenging Angel by Catherine Cavendish

Be careful what you wish for. Dark Avenging Angel by Catherine Cavendish is part revenge thriller, part tragedy. It’s what you would get if you mixed a cocktail of Jane Eyre and “The Monkey’s Paw” with a dash of Death Note. Intrigued? You should be. Like Jane Eyre, the novella follows the tragic life of a […]

BOOK REVIEW: 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill

BOOK REVIEW: 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill

True horror is not buckets of gore but fear—fear that creeps up on you, hangs on tight, and lingers. Few authors understand this as well as Joe Hill. His novel Horns (2011) is one of my favorites and his last release NOS4A2 (2013) was scary as Hell. His first published book, 20th Century Ghosts (2007) is a collection […]

Seattle Crypticon Horror Convention: Day One

Seattle Crypticon Horror Convention: Day One

I’ve been going to Crypticon Seattle for the last five years, and I have to say that this year’s convention was the best. It wasn’t the amazing celebrity guests though there were many including the Soska Sisters (writers/directors of American Mary) and Sid Haag (House of 1,000 Corpses). Nor was it showings of new indie […]

The Celebrity Guest of Crypticon Seattle 2015

For anyone who follows my writing, you’d know that out of all the conventions I cover each year, Crypticon is my favorite. Every Memorial Day Weekend horror fans from around the world gather at the Hilton Seattle Airport and Conference Center. That is not an exaggeration either. Every year I meet people who’ve traveled from […]

Book Review: Penpal by Dathan Auerbach

Book Review: Penpal by Dathan Auerbach

You know those crane machines filled with cheap stuffed toys and the occasional awesome one that you simply must have? Penpal is a lot like those. The writing is long-winded and poorly paced, but if you’re patient, you will find the story is worth the trouble and the purse full of coins it costs to buy the book. […]

Book Review: Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix

Book Review: Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix

At first glance Horrorstör, the novel by Grady Hendrix, designed to look like an Ikea catalog, looks like a clever marketing gimmick or a parody without substance. But readers, I promise you, like the Orsk store at the center of this plot, Horrorstör is full of surprises. I recommend getting your hands on a physical […]
