The Extinction Parade Collected Volume 1 by Max Brooks and illustrated by Raulo Cacers (graphic novel review).

Max Brooks is doing well for himself. Not content with getting his zombie apocalypse novel ‘World War Z’ turned into a Hollywood blockbuster, Brooks has now worked with Spanish artist Raulo Caceres to turn his zombie/vampire mash-up novella, ‘The Extinction Parade’, into a series of graphic novels. Volume 1 of ‘The Extinction Parade’ considered here, […]

No Sharks In The Med And Other Stories by Brian Lumley (book review).

According to Brian Lumley’s introduction, ‘No Sharks In The Med’ is the third in a trio of Subterranean Press collections of his work, the previous volumes being ‘Haggopian And Other Stories’ and ‘The Taint And Other Novellas’. Those two collections were made up primarily of Lumley’s more Lovecraft-influenced tales. Indeed, some of them were straightforward […]

‘Iron Kissed’ is book three in the ‘Mercy Thompson’ series of books by Patricia Briggs which is currently running at eight books but hasn’t as yet come to a conclusion.

Creature Features by William Schoell (book review).

In many respects, William Schoell’s book ‘Creature Features’ is for people who want to know about monster movies and, up to 2007 when it was published, what is out there so you can make an informed choice as to which films to pursue, especially as so many are classified as B level. It’s a shame […]

The Viking Dead (Tomes Of The Dead) by Toby Venables (book review).

Vikings and zombies. What a combination. Talk about themes which are very current. Vikings are an eternal favourite and zombies are everywhere in the media at least. Bjólf is the leader of the crew of the Hrafn long-ship. Pursued by Skalla and his numerically superior force, Bjólf seeks shelter in a dark and lonely coastline. […]

I Talked With A Zombie by Tom Weaver (book review).

The 2009 release of the book ‘I Talked With A Zombie’ where Tom Weaver interviews 23 genre stars could really have been called ‘I Talked With Time Travellers’ when you consider three of them starred in ‘The Time Tunnel’. What I like about Weaver’s interview books is that they don’t just dwell on particular films […]

A Stark And Wormy Knight by Tad Williams (book review).

This is a collection of eleven short stories written by Tad Williams, some of which have been published in other places prior to this collection. Unlike a lot of collections of short stories, there seemed to be nothing to hang them all together apart from the fact they are all by one author. There seemed […]
