Mythanimus by Storm Constantine (book review).

An issue that many writers of short stories have is that their output is likely to appear in many disparate publications such as anthologies and magazines, including, these days, on-line magazines with no print version.

Hamilton’s ‘Anita Blake’ series, the characters keep developing and information about the world is added in subsequent novels. The series ends when the author […]

Thin Air by Storm Constantine (book review).

There are times when you have read a brilliant book and are a little nervous about starting a new one, convinced that the next read will seem a poor second-rater in comparison. Having just finished one of the best fantasy novels I have read for a very long time (‘Words Of Radiance’ by Brandon Sanderson […]

The Alchemy Press Book Of Horrors edited by Peter Coleborn and Jan Edwards (book review).

‘The Alchemy Press Book Of Horrors’ is a large collection of modern weird tales. There are so many I’ll just have to pick out a few highlights. If a story isn’t mentioned, it doesn’t mean I didn’t like it, just that the review should be shorter than the book. Like an army besieging a late […]
