NEW INTERVIEW: Jonathan Butcher (September 2018)

September 10, 2018
Jonathan Butcher is a veritable powerhouse of creativity.  His work isn’t afraid to push the boundaries; to hurt and repel.  It can be fiercely uncompromising, ball-achingly cold, horrifically disturbing, and gut-churningly sick.  But this is not extreme horror for the simple sake of disgusting or disturbing its audience.  There’s a hell of a lot more to his work than that…albeit, sometimes it can just be an old joke that’s followed him through life!

With Butcher’s novella ‘What Good Girls Do’ (2017) currently ‘Book of the Month’ over at the ‘Splatter Club’, what better time to catch up with the man himself to explore the catacombs of the horrors lurking behind his stories…

NEW REVIEW: Mike Duke - Ashley's Tale: The Initiation (2018)

September 9, 2018
Concluding his highly-revered ‘Ashley’s Tale’ trilogy, Mike Duke’s ‘Ashley’s Tale: The Initiation’ (2018) is a solid slab of gut-wrenching and adrenaline-pumping violent intensity.  For those who’ve already read the first two instalments in this incredible trilogy, trust me, you won’t be disappointed with this final book.  Duke pulls absolutely no punches as he charges forth with a truly outstanding final offering to the series.

DLS Reviews offers up a full beaten and bruised...

NEW REVIEW: Jonathan Butcher - The Chocolateman (2017)

August 22, 2018
British author Jonathan Butcher isn’t scared to plunge his hands deep into a stinking vat of pure unadulterated filth when writing his tales.  His short story ‘The Chocolateman’ (2017) is a prime example of this.  It’s vile and disgusting and just plain wrong.  But what a horrifically entertaining read.  You’ll laugh just as hard as you squirm.

The Sinister Horror Company released the story as a limited edition signed and hand numbered chapbook.  Only twenty-five copies were printed....

NEW REVIEW: Shane P.D. Agnew - Guy N. Smith: Illustrated Bibliography (2018)

August 19, 2018
Shane P.D. Agnew is a diehard Guy N. Smith fan and collector.  It’s probably fair to say that over the years his collecting has become near-obsessive (much to his wife’s dismay no doubt).

For the past couple of years Shane Agnew’s been cataloguing his collection, researching all the hundreds of obscure publications and editions of Guy’s work, and filling in the gaps.  The fruits of his goliath endeavour is the first incredibly comprehensive illustrated bibliography of Guy N. Smith’s ...

NEW REVIEW: Sinister Horror Company - The Black Room Manuscripts: Vol 3 (2018)

August 18, 2018
I feel decidedly late to the party with this review, as the anthology’s been out for a good few months now.  Nevertheless, DLS Reviews provides a full story-by-story dissection of The Sinister Horror Company's third charity anthology ‘The Black Room Manuscripts: Volume Three’ (2018).

Oh yeah, and it’s another absolute cracker!

NEW REVIEW: Garth Ennis - Preacher Vol 5 - 6

July 21, 2018
Carrying on with the ‘Preacher’ graphic novels, two new in-depth reviews have been added to DLS Reviews, this time for ‘Preacher Vol 5: Dixie Fried’ (1998) and ‘Preacher Vol 6: War In The Sun’ (1999).

If you’ve been reading the ‘Preacher’ graphic novels then you’ll know the score by now.  Crazy-ass mayhem, conflicts, violence, over-the-top storylines, and utter carnage.  Love it!

NEW REVIEW: Matt Shaw - Fisting Rex (2016)

July 13, 2018
Dinosaur Erotica.  I kid you not, this is a real thing!  Matt Shaw stumbled across it, whilst researching books for his podcast apparently, and subsequently penned one of his own.  Why not eh?!

So I present to you Matt Shaw's 'Fisting Rex' (2016).  Of course, said cultural masterpiece deserves reviewing.  Ergo, one in-depth review of one of the weirdest pieces of smut I’ve ever encountered…

NEW REVIEW: Matt Shaw - Eleven (2018)

July 12, 2018
Another delightful little read I’ve had recently is Matt Shaw’s new controversial comic ‘Eleven’ (2018).  If you’ve not already got yourself a copy, then I believe you’re too late.  They’re sold out.

If you’re not already familiar with the short story which was included within The Sinister Horror Company’s charity anthology ‘The Black Room Manuscripts: Volume Two’ (2016), then be warned, this is a tough read.  It’s pretty much Matt Shaw’s take on David Slade’s ‘Ha...

NEW REVIEW: Garth Ennis - Preacher: Vols 1-4

July 12, 2018

Due to a recent illness (I slipped a disc in my back) I’ve been doing a fair amount of reading and drafting up reviews of late, but I’ve been unable to get myself in front of the PC for any reasonable length of time in order to upload the reviews with the cover art etc.

However, over the last few weeks or so I’ve managed to get this backlog of ‘sick bed’ reviews uploaded.

To be honest, I’ve been meaning to read Garth Ennis’ ‘Preacher’ graphic novels for a while now.  They’ve...

NEW REVIEW: Phil Sloman - Broken On The Inside (2018)

June 20, 2018
Next up on DLS Reviews we have a story-by-story dissection of British horror author Phil Sloman’s latest publication – the short story collection ‘Broken On The Inside’ (2018).  The book contains five equally cold and cutting stories that circle the plughole of crumbling sanity.  Superb stuff…
