DARK FANTASY PROJECT – BOOK REVIEW by Kevin Holton “BROKEN: Stories of Damaged Psyches” by Weldon Burge

 

Psychiatric illness, psychotic breaks, and general mental mayhem have always been popular topics in horror and dark literature. From Frakenstein’s mad obsession with reanimating the dead, to Hamlet seeing his father’s ghost and consequently getting most of the people around him murdered, to recent stories like Paul Tremlbay’s A Head Full of Ghosts, readers love being able to get inside the damaged minds of a good, twisted character.

BOOK REVIEW – “Thing of Nightmares” by Mark Rivett

 

 

“Thing of Nightmares” is a book any steampunk/fantasy reader will absolutely adore. A crime investigation, chasing the “Clockwork Killer” opens the door to a spiral of conspiracies, murders and lots of blood.

Rivett’s writing is very clear, very easy to read. You turn the pages without realizing. With all the introductions and descriptions he needs to expose to guide the reader, it never gets slow or boring.

Characters are realistic, you can relate to what they feel, which sticks you to the book.
I especially liked the crime thread. People enraged because they are just, scared. The law failing in their conclusions, blindness and above all, despair. Read more “BOOK REVIEW – “Thing of Nightmares” by Mark Rivett”

DARK FANTASY PROJECT Kerry Black – Book Review – “Sanity’s Threshold” by Angela L. Lindseth

Book Review: Sanity’s Threshold by Angela L. Lindseth
Reviewed by Kerry E.B. Black

“Sanity’s Threshold” is a collection of about thirty short fictional tales of terror, the paranormal, and the odd, each told in under 700 words. Some are drabble, brief pieces of about one hundred words which, although but a “mouthful” for the reader, might prove interesting to “chew on” long after absorbing their meaning.

Interview with N. Heinz. Fantasy and horror author.

 

Nicole! After enjoying your poetry, and reading your first book… you’re a little diamond, difficult to believe you just jumped on the writers’ tank!! How did this happen?

Honestly, one day, I just woke up and decided I was going to do it. Put myself out there and hope for the best. I knew going into the book world that not everyone would care for my writing, but I also knew right away that I’d found some kindred spirits. Read more “Interview with N. Heinz.

DARK FANTASY PROJECT Kevin Holton – Review – “Horror Haiku Pas de Deux” by A. F. Stewart

There’s a lot to be said for a writer who self-publishes a book correctly, especially when that writer goes the extra mile to provide ISBN numbers, internal art, and dozens of pages of poetry. A. F. Stewart’s “Horror Haiku Pas de Deux” draws inspiration from the #HorrorHaikuesday trend on Twitter, spinning a social media phenomena into an entire collection.
