A Deep Horror That Was Very Nearly Awe – J.R. Hamantaschen – Review

“A Deep Horror That Was Very Nearly Awe is, to me, such an atypical collection of weird horror stories. It discomforts, challenges and refuses to mollycoddle the reader, instead unleashing a torrent of brilliantly-written, intensely imaginative stories that are embedded in the vagaries and horrors to be found in the human condition…”

The Lesser Swamp Gods of Lesser Dixie – Jonathan Raab – Review

“The Lesser Swamp-Gods of Little Dixie is a roller-coaster adventure through the Weird South and the grim-dark region of Little Dixie, full of quiet (and loud) occult and cosmic horror, and all drenched in a deeply engaging and authentic atmosphere and an occasional sly sense of humour that peeks through, tongue in cheek. Excellent characterisation, some great action scenes, particularly towards the end of the novella, and some of the best Weird Horror writing I’ve ever encountered in the genre, The Lesser Swamp-Gods of Little Dixie is an amazing achievement by Jonathan Raab…”

The Hillbilly Moonshine Massacre – Jonathan Raab -Review

“Brilliant characterisation, great action scenes, deft development of atmosphere, and a constant, unsettling barrage of horror blended with conspiracy theories and a wickedly sharp, dark sense of humour all blend into one fantastic creation…”

The Green and the Black – William Meikle – Review

“The Green and the Black is William Meikle at his best, delivering strong, deftly-written prose entwined with a highly imaginative and richly-detailed mythological plot. It digs out the most disturbing elements of local folklore and legend and then uses them as a framework for a powerful, atmospheric and slow-burning piece of horror fiction that is often almost unbearably tense…”

The Lovecraft Squad: Dreaming – Stephen Jones (ed.) – Review

“The Lovecraft Squad: Dreaming is a hugely enjoyable anthology, and Stephen Jones has once again worked his magic as editor to pull together some of the best and most imaginative writers in the horror and cosmic horror genres to deliver original, engaging and chilling tales based around the Human Protection League shared universe…”

Tempest Outpost – Brad Harmer-Barnes – Review

“Taken as a whole, Tempest Outpost is hugely enjoyable, a fast-paced and tense action thriller that features some great writing, memorable characters and some imaginative creatures that are creepy as hell as they hunt their unfortunate prey…”

Trade Yer Coffin for a Gun – Mer Whinery – Review

” When everything is considered together – the brilliant cover art, excellent copy-editing and internal layout, the fantastic writing, plotting and characterisation provided by Whinery – I have no hesitation in calling this one of the best ‘Weird West’ novels that I’ve ever read…”
