“Three Floors Up: An Electric Eclectic Book” by Paul White

  I love a solid horror story and Paul White has crafted one with his novelette, Three Floors Up: An Electric Eclectic Book. Beginning with an unnamed man observing the street outside his third-floor window, the story builds step by step, navigating the recesses of his mind like an alligator-infested swamp. He is a spectator who watches the world outside and the people who move … Continue reading “Three Floors Up: An Electric Eclectic Book” by Paul White

Strange Weather: Four Short Novels By: Joe Hill

  I have a new favorite author. Oddly enough, he’s the son of my former favorite author. Joe Hill, son of Stephen King, has surpassed his father in the brilliant writer department. Make no mistake, Hill’s genre is also horror/thriller/suspense. He attacks his stories with fresh eyes and contemporary views, drawing on the present-day world to engage his readers.   Strange Weather: Four Short Novels, … Continue reading Strange Weather: Four Short Novels By: Joe Hill

“Sleeping Beauties” by Stephen King & Owen King

  I confess I was skeptical when I saw my favorite author, Stephen King, had paired up with his son, Owen King, to write a book. I wondered if their writing would be similar, would they complement one another? I wasn’t prepared for the compelling story they provided; part fantasy, part science fiction, all thriller. As with many of the elder King’s books, there is … Continue reading “Sleeping Beauties” by Stephen King & Owen King

The Queen of Scream – Meet Suzi Albracht

The Queen of Scream: Suzi Albracht It’s no secret that I’m a great fan of horror; horror movies, horror books, horror television shows. I love Stephen King, Ramsey Campbell, Edgar Allan Poe, and Joe Hill. Good horror stories have to grab you right away and carry you along until the boogeyman jumps out and says BOO! so softly it makes your skin crawl. Those evil … Continue reading The Queen of Scream – Meet Suzi Albracht

Ghostly Writes Anthology: Get Your Halloween Chills and Thrills in This Spooky Collection

It’s fall and there is something about the season that is inherently eerie. Perhaps it is the trees losing their leaves as the temperature falls. Often it is colder and rainier. The sun sets earlier and the nights are longer. As a child walking home from school I was conscious of leaves crackling under my shoes and my breath creating small ghosts that blew out … Continue reading Ghostly Writes Anthology: Get Your Halloween Chills and Thrills in This Spooky Collection

Halloween Movies I MUST Watch!

Nothing is more fun for me around Halloween than watching scary movies, old and new. Granted, a lot of the movies that scared me in my younger days don’t even register on my fear meter now. But there is a degree of nostalgia in watching them and recalling my initial reactions. You may laugh at some of my selections; that’s okay. Hopefully you have your … Continue reading Halloween Movies I MUST Watch!
