BOOK REVIEW – “Emma’s Army” book 4 of the series “Zombies Vs Robots” by Joe and Marisha Cautilli

This book is a different one. A very special sci-fi/cyberpunk story. This is the fourth of the series “Zombies Vs. Robots”, so the thread is already complex and with lots of information for the reader.

A great effort on robotics research (or knowledge) is obvious and it turns the plot into a web of controversial characters, emotions, technical concepts and delicate situations.
Survival, danger and panic move our characters, making the tension latent all along the book. Read more “BOOK REVIEW – “Emma’s Army” book 4 of the series “Zombies Vs Robots” by Joe and Marisha Cautilli”

DARK FANTASY PROJECT Kerry Black – Book Review – “Bumps in the Road” by Chad Lutzke

Book Review: Bumps in the Road – A Horror Anthology
Review Written by Kerry E.B. Black

This 220 page anthology of seventeen short horror stories compiled and edited by Chad Lutzke is perfect for road trips. One of my favorites, SdroW by Suzie Lockhart and Bruce Lockhart II, followed a mother and her autistic child after an Apocalypse, but the diverse selections offer much to shiver over and think about, including interesting takes on alternate realities, homicidal truck drivers, and family vacations.

The book’s blurb explains “roads have been around for centuries, allowing mankind a convenient path to arrive at their destination… roadway treks can bring with them a lifetime of memories. But not all memories are good. And some things are best forgotten.”

Be it a hit-and-run incident or a strange roadside watcher, the stories by authors Donald J. Bingle, John Boden, Glen Damien Campbell, Pam Farley, the above mentioned Lockharts, James H. Longmore, Bekki Pate, Adam Vine, Stanley B. Webb, and Kyle Yadlosky joined Chad Lutze on his exploration down different streets and avenues. After reading “Bumps in the Road,” readers may have a changed perspective of stretches of highway and long drives.

DARK FANTASY PROJECT Kevin Holton – Book Review -“Attack of the Kaiju: Age of Monsters” edited by Matthew Dennion & Neil Riebe

Dragon. Golem. Behemoth. Godzilla. What is it about the idea of a giant creature smashing its way through civilization that people love so much? Perhaps we use them as a metaphor to represent our more unstoppable fears, like nuclear war. Or, maybe, it’s just fun to watch a big old beast smash stuff up.

Attack of the Kaiju: Age of Monsters is an anthology with a pretty clear theme. Featuring fifteen short stories from the contemporary masters of kaiju fiction, this collection runs the gamut, containing tales about everything from sentient Nazi killing machines to orphaned dragons throwing civilization’s peaceful co-existence out of alignment.

“A letter to the readers.” by Mar G.-A

This is a post for the readers.

I’m a promoter, so I practically live in the entrails of the process of thinking-writing-creating-releasing-spreading a book, although I’m not a writer.

What is your job? Any answer you give me, I’m certain you need to be motivated, to have a reason, to feel others are happy with what you do. A writer puts their heart and soul into the process. To be an artist means to pour your weakest part in a public bucket where people will come, step on, taste and judge you.

“DARK TALES FROM THE DEN” by Dona Fox

Dona Fox is a terrifying, exceptional horror author.

“I found this to be a wonderfully macabre collection of dark tales. What makes for great reading is, of course, a great story, but even better when the story is well told. I like the writer’s style and turn of phrase.”

“You know that feeling when you suddenly wake from a nightmare, your heart racing and your body shaking with terror? That’s the feeling Dona Fox captures with every macabre story in this excellent collection. She masterfully crafts each tale with an eerie, dream-like quality.” 

“A sheer challenge to get through this book without a terrified feeling coming over you, this collection will leave with fear in your heart and in awe of the author’s writing ability.”

“This collection of short stories is impressive and intensely terrifying. The lurid settings and dark characters Dona Fox created left a lasting impression on me.” 

 

Find within seventeen unsettling tales that will ooze under your skin, cozy little tales that twist slowly strange and violent-delightfully dark. There’s a mean doll, a box full of bones-and newspaper clippings, a bank robbery gone horribly wrong-for almost everyone. Daddy’s last train, and the train Uncle Frank catches again and again, a haunted carousel that sparks up the night, an alien abduction, a meeting with the evil Lilith. Foxes. A girl you wouldn’t want to meet in a bar-if you value your ink, a drug of the future with certain finality about it. Many graves dug, barns to die in, and ghosts and more ghosts. Seep into this book.
