Mummy Knows Best anthology edited by Theresa Derwin (book review).

‘Mummy Knows Best’ is an anthology of short stories edited by Theresa Derwin, late in 2017. As is reasonably obvious from the title and the cover, these stories focus on a wide variety of mummification tales. Coming from the Terror Tree label, this reviewer expected a good dose of blood-curdling horror but the contents actually […]

Creepy Presents Richard Corben (book review).

Dark Horse have been reprinting Warren Publication magazines in hardback for some time. They must have been conscious of the fact that not everyone could afford them all, so did individual volumes of Bernie Wrighton, Alex Toth and Richard Corben. The latter I have in my hands now. Here we have 35 stories, 3 of […]

It Crept From The Tomb edited by Peter Normanton (book review).

I wasn’t quite what to make of Peter Normanton’s book, ‘It Crept From The Tomb’. I mean, the cover shows an alien with phallic eyeballs attempting to strangle a woman, who has a small knife preparing to strike back. Horror Science Fiction as befitting anything from EC Comics and Warren Publications. The introduction that the […]

The Rain: Netflix TV series (trailer).

Here’s a new science fiction series from Netflix that looks like it’s jumped from the pages of a YA novel, but actually hasn’t – it’s their first Danish-language Denmark-set post-apocalypse type thang. In this case, a plague transmitted by rain water. Called, err, The Rain. Some day a real rain’s going to come. Well, that […]

Anyone who has heard of Mike Chinn will probably be familiar with either his steampunk versions of Sherlock Holmes or his ‘Damian Paladin’ stories. Since the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are now out of copyright, there have been a number of stories and novels of varying degrees of competence using his character. Mike […]

After an introduction by renowned editor Ellen Datlow and a poem ‘O Terrible Bird’ by Sandra Kasturi, we get down to the meat of the book: the stories. ‘The Obscure Bird’ by Nicholas Royle is about a man who starts turning nocturnal. His wife becomes worried. Then he ends up more owlish than Billy Bunter […]

Tortured Souls by Clive Barker (book review).

While your present reviewer would consider himself a fan of Clive Barker, he has to admit to being a bit perplexed by this short novella, ‘Tortured Souls’. It certainly uses one of Barker’s most consistent and enjoyable tropes in the way that supernatural horror is grafted onto Judaeo-Christian mythology. The very idea that God would […]

‘The Dead Next Door’ is a low budget American zombie horror movie from 1990. It represents the debut of writer/producer/director J.R. Bookwalter, then aged 19. Twenty-five years later, Bookwalter raised enough money through a crowdfunding exercise to restore the film in 2K and this ‘Collector’s Edition’ is the result, offering new versions of the movie […]
