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

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 […]

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 […]

The n-Body Problem by Tony Burgess (book review).

Tony Burgess is a Canadian surrealist author of literary horror who writes novels and screenplays. His latest novel, ‘The n-Body Problem’, provides an original, odd and extremely disturbing take on the zombie genre. Is it worth reading? The story is set in Canada around the mid-2030s. Some twenty years earlier, the zombie apocalypse happened. As […]
