Book of the Week: Mexican Gothic.

I’ve been meaning to read Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Mexican Gothic for a while now, and I can say that it’s living up to the title. It is definitely Mexican, and very nicely Gothic.

So, you know: gothic. #commissionearned

Book of the Week: DANSE MACABRE.

I know that Stephen King is somewhat of a jackass, these days; but his 1981 work DANSE MACABRE is an extremely useful look at the contemporary horror genre, and we are overdue for somebody to write something similar for our own time period*. It’s the old problem of separating the art from the artist. I mean, even I can be a slight jackass, sometimes.

Book of the Week: Decisions: Four Tales of Choices.

Writer Moe Lane has warned – or maybe promised? – that Decisions: Four Tales of Choices will be the last self-published fiction of his in 2021.
