Hollywood horrors, entities from beyond the grave, and body horror mutations: these can be found within my recent reads which I’ll be sharing with you, dear reader. For this edition of my book review, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on not one but three horror books from my personal collection. Without further ado, let’s dig

As if conversion therapy isn’t already scary enough, try going through that with a killer coming after the campers one by one. That’s the premise for this slasher novel by Elliot Arthur Cross and Joshua Winning. Reading this as a gay man, I couldn’t help but feel for the characters and their plight. The kills

Stephen King is a pretty well known name in the horror genre, to be sure. Interestingly, his work has experienced more longevity in the audio-visual department. Still, with my ever-growing reading hobby, I thought it’s more than about time that I check out what a lot of folks — and the author himself — dub as

Adam Cesare’s Clown in a Cornfield is a book that swept the reading horror community, and for good reason. It’s a surprisingly gritty, intense experience that slickly includes sharp generational commentary. Let me tell you more about my experience with the town of Kettle Springs and its sinister mascot: Frendo the Clown. What is it

Chuck Tingle’s a bit of a wild card, mostly known for his erotically humorous tales with subject matter and characters the likes of which other authors dare not do. Aside from that, he’s a loveable, fuzzy, and warm presence on social media that sends out positivity, especially for us LGBTQ+ folks. Imagine my surprise when I discover

With this latest show from the creative behind The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor (among other works), here is yet again a heart-wrenching and gut-wrenching slice

Eric LaRocca brings us a short but darkly sweet tale of epistolary horror. While it may not be spilling blood by the bucketful, his novella of sadomasochism gone wrong had my stomach-churning right to the very end. Readers are subjected to a psychological spiral that goes into irreversible darkness that had my eyes glued to

Michael McDowell is one of the unsung horror writing greats that I haven’t read until recently. Boy, was putting off his first published novel The Amulet was a mistake. If you’re looking for a Southern Gothic flavor in your Final Destination (published years before the movie came out, actually!), this book is your go-to and

 As a new fan of Fear Street, largely thanks to the pretty dang good film trilogy put out by Netflix (check out our reviews here, here, and here!), I’ve made it my mission to hunt down as many of the books as I can. Imagine my surprise when I discover that these books aren’t really

 As a fan of slashers in film and book format, I feel like I’ve come to a point where I’m no longer fazed. That is, until I’ve read Sean McDonough’s The Class Reunion. Mr. McDonough previously wowed me with his ambitious and fun novel The Terror at Turtleshell Mountain, and during my slasher kick, it’s
