“A Glutton For Punishment: An Electric Eclectic Book” By Michael J Elliott

I’d read an earlier Electric Eclectic Novelette by Michael J. Elliott (“Final Harvest”), so when I saw he had a new release I couldn’t wait to read it. This author is fast becoming one of my favorite go-to reads. His writing is crisp, his imagination terrifying, and his sense of humor delightfully irreverent. “A Glutton for Punishment” is a darkly dystopian tale where obese people … Continue reading “A Glutton For Punishment: An Electric Eclectic Book” By Michael J Elliott

“Joyland (Hard Case Crime Book 112)” by Stephen King

                        Although I am a big Stephen King fan, I had never paid much attention to Joyland. Maybe it was the cover which seemed unnecessarily garish. I had never even read the book’s blurb or any of the reviews. Whatever the reason I resisted reading this novel, I succumbed to my love of King’s writing and added it to my Kindle. It’s a good thing … Continue reading “Joyland (Hard Case Crime Book 112)” by Stephen King

“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

“Gwendy’s Button Box” by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar

In Gwendy’s Button Box, twelve-year-old Gwendy Peterson breaks a child’s cardinal rule; she talks to a stranger. When a stranger calls her over for a “palaver” she hesitantly joins him on a bench. In a King thriller, a stranger is … Continue reading “Gwendy’s Button Box” by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar

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
