Book Review: 'Things Slip Through' by Kevin Lucia

Kevin Lucia's Things Slip Through is a collection of short stories that reads more like a novel due to the importance of the wrap-around story and the way the tales interconnect. There's a bit of the tone of The Twilight Zone and Amazing Stories in this enjoyable (and too short!) read. And, of course, many readers will recognize the connections to tales and creatures of H. P. Lovecraft throughout the book.

Book Review: 'The Bones of You' by Gary McMahon

One of the things that fascinates me most about the horror genre is the vast array of approaches the author has at his or her disposal in order to achieve the desired effect of scaring the reader. Some go for aggressive, in-your-face attempts at pure shock; some fill their inkwells with blood and guts to go for the gross-out; and some simply sidle up next to you and whisper terrible, disquieting things in your ear.

Book Review: ‘Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut – The Official Visual Companion’

Once you get past the meat-and-potatoes of Visual Companion, it takes a sharp turn into pure insanity. There are coloring pages, a maze game, a word search, and the digital equivalent of Colorforms (I’m dating myself again) as additional diversions. It’s so bizarre an idea to include in the iBook about an M-Rated horror game, but it somehow makes perfect sense when it’s springing forth from the brain of SWERY.
