When the “problems” include demons from hell and undead sorcerers, you REALLY need someone equipped to deal with them. Someone like Mr. Hiram Woolley. A fearless man. A capable man. A Cunning Man!

The Making of Alien Book Review

Aug 21, 2019 No Comments by

If you run in the circles in which I run, chances are you’ve been asked whether you prefer Star Wars or Star Trek at least once. The only answer to that question, of course, is Alien. Alien is such a part of our culture that it can be easy to forget what a revolutionary movie […]

All My Colors Book Review

Jun 12, 2019 No Comments by

At first blush, All My Colors seems to slot neatly into the subgenre of “writer horror” — a book that delves into the fear that lingers at the edges of creativity. In some respects, it shares much in common with Stephen King’s novella Secret Window, Secret Garden or Kathe Koja’s cosmic artist’s horror, Cipher. But […]

Fury from The Tomb: The Institute of Singular Antiquities Book I Review

Mar 13, 2019 No Comments by

It’s true that I am mainly a doctor of medicine (or so it’s been claimed) and I’ve mostly been confined to the laboratory. Yet I’ve always had an interest in archaeology. Digging up stiffs of ancient ages has always had its fascination for me, which explains my love of mummies and archaic curses. In recent […]

Predator: If It Bleeds Book Review

Nov 28, 2017 No Comments by

Your enjoyment of the new Predator story collection, If It Bleeds–edited by Bryan Thomas Schmidt–will depend in part on your enjoyment of the Predator movie franchise.  Personally, I think the original is a timeless classic and the sequel with Danny Glover is better than most people give it credit for, but still flawed in many […]

Anno Dracula 1899 and Other Stories Book Review

Oct 16, 2017 1 Comment by

In Anno Dracula 1899 and Other Stories, published by Titan Books, Kim Newman once again tears open the toy chest of genre culture and doesn’t pick up after himself, leaving a clutter of in-jokes and obscure references in his wake.  Yeah, Newman’s got his schtick, but so do we all and his is a lot […]
