Red, White And Blood by Christopher Farnsworth (book review).

Careful. You might slip on the blood. There is plenty of gore and associated material in ‘Red, White And Blood’ because this is the third novel about Nathanial Cade, the president’s vampire. I’m certain he’s modelled on Clint Eastwood’s character in the ‘In The Line Of Fire’ movie as his immovable face and strong jawline […]

Tony Burgess is a Canadian surrealist author of literary horror who writes novels and screenplays.

Night Terrors (A Shadow Watch Novel book 1) by Tim Waggoner (book review).

The information I have here says this is the first novel in the ‘Shadow Watch’ series so it looks as though there will be more to come. Before discussing the Shadow Watch, it would be prudent to discuss the central tenant to this story. Basically, if you are of the right sort and dream long […]
