So I read this exclusively on my work commutes and still managed to finish it in just a few days. This book is addictive and it’s a miracle I never missed my stop. Sister, Maiden, Monster does that thing where the book is weird and then the last 50 pages go absolutely insane, and I was totally here for it.
Join David as he chats w/ author Thomas Olde Heuvelt about his newest release, Echo, from Tor NightFire (2/8/22). Thomas also talks about his earliest writing influences from the likes of Barker, King, Koontz, and Straub and about how the practicality of the Dutch worms its way into his novels.

Synopsis “A story where nothing is what it seems—a thrilling hall of mirrors full of deeply disturbing twists. This book will haunt you.” —Alex Michaelides, #1 New York Times bestselling author Sundial is a new, twisty psychological horror novel from Catriona Ward, internationally bestselling author of The Last House on Needless Street. You can’t escape what’s in your blood… All […]
Dead Silence is author S.A. Barnes’ lates release (and the first under that name, though the author has a whole portfolio of titles – mostly YA – under the name Stacey Kade). I thought this was a really good read, and it is exactly as billed: it’s the Titanic in space but also murdery with a touch of reality TV.
People seem to love lists, and while I am not always a huge fan of making them (I believe reviews speak for themselves), it is always fun to revisit the amazing novels I have had a chance to read over the last year. Below, you will find the covers for my Top 25 Reads of […]
Nothing But Blackened Teeth is Cassandra Khaw’s latest release. It is a horror novella about a group of friends who spend the night in a haunted mansion. They are down for some shenanigans, but how will they react when things go sideways?
Slewfoot is an intriguing horror story that is both extremely unsettling and utterly satisfying. It is both a tale of finding oneself and pure, unadulterated vengeance. It is both exactly and not even close to what I was expecting upon completion, and I thoroughly enjoyed my gateway drug to Brom’s library.
I am so happy to review my second book of spooky season! I want to read more horror/thriller this year, and The Last House on Needless Street is a super creepy book that really hits those Fall vibes right on the head.
Certain Dark Things is the new, sharply set, novel from Silvia Moreno-Garcia; it bares its fangs right away with action scenes in fast beats under the glow of the neon lights. It’s what twilight would be if it was dark and riddled with bullet holes, if the vampire families were warring drug cartels, not welcome by the human ones that inhabit, run and rule Mexico City. This alternate reality where ten types of vampires will come for you in the night, or day, is sure to keep you gripped.
o in conclusion, not one for me. But if you’ve never read horror or just starting out, and love short stories with a strong-internal-dialogue-prose driven narrative, then Nothing But Blackened Teeth might just be a great novella for you.
