NEW REVIEW: Clive Barker - Seduth (2009)

February 19, 2017
One of those comics that’s been quietly sitting there on my ever-expanding ‘To Be Reviewed’ pile for a number of years is Clive Barker’s standalone comic ‘Seduth’ (2009).  Co-written by Chris Monfette and sporting artwork by Gabriel Rodriguez and Jay Fotos the comic was nothing short of a top-quality offering from IDW.  Furthermore, the comic was converted into 3-D, with cardboard glasses provided, by the talented Ray Zone.

If you’re a Barker fan (or even if you’re not) then this is a must read.  Bleak, nihilistic, and offering up some truly incredible artwork.  Of course, DLS provides a full dissection…

NEW REVIEW: Mike Duke - Ashley's Tale: Making Jake (2016)

January 21, 2017
Back in October of 2015 US author Mike Duke released his debut novella – ‘Ashley’s Tale’ (2015).  It was a hardboiled revenge-thriller that knocked the living shit out of you.  It also left many unanswered questions surrounding one of the principal characters in the story – Jake.

Mike Duke has returned to the ‘Ashley’s Tale’ story with his equally gritty prequel – ‘Ashley’s Tale: Making Jake’ (2016).  If you’ve not yet read the original story then I strongly advise yo...

NEW REVIEW: Stuart Keane - Grin (2015)

January 11, 2017
Brutal.  Uncompromising. Adrenaline-pumping.  Disturbing.  Just a few choice words to describe Stuart Keane’s extreme horror novel ‘Grin’ (2015).  To quote the review that’s just gone up on DLS Reviews “It reads like someone’s taken Shaun Hutson down a long, dark alleyway and told him to write the nastiest, most violent and uncompromising vengeance-fuelled thriller he can, or his family will get it.”

Yeah – this is some hard-hitting nasty shit we’ve got here.  Enjoy…

NEW REVIEW: Guy N Smith - Hell Of A Guy: Fans On The Rampage (2016)

January 8, 2017

I have to confess I’ve been sitting on this review for a while!  However various work commitments and the like have gotten in the way of me proofreading and finally posting this up.  But I’ve finally done it.

As many of you may recall, back in 2016, Justin Park and I put together a special never-to-be-published one-off hardback anthology to celebrate twenty five years of the Guy N Smith convention.  It contained seventeen short stories written by some of his most dedicated fans.  The e...
