Defenders by Will McIntosh (book review).

A few of my reviewing friends had very good things to say about ‘Love Minus Eighty’ by Will McIntosh.

The Remaining by D.J. Molles (book review).

‘The Remaining’ isn’t just another zombie apocalypse novel. Actually, it is, but author D.J. Molles has tweaked his re-telling of a fate worse than death enough to make it fresh. I just read that sentence over. Really, there’s nothing fresh about a zombie apocalypse. Zombies are disgusting. Two distinct facts separate this story from the […]
