NEW REVIEW: Mats Strandberg - Blood Cruise (2018)

November 14, 2018
Next up on DLS Reviews we have a full dissection of Swedish author Mats Strandberg’s novel ‘Blood Cruise’ (2018).  Think ‘Blade’ meets Ash Hartwell’s ‘Tip Of The Iceberg’ (2017).  Oh yes, there’s plenty of vicious, blood-splattered fun in this hefty tome.

If you like your vampire horror gritty, intense and drenched in gore – then this one’s for you…

 

NEW REVIEW: Michael Marshall Smith - The Anomaly (2018)

October 28, 2018

Penned under the pseudonym Michael Rutger, Michael Marshall Smith’s latest tale ‘The Anomaly’ (2018) offers up a terrifying exploration into the deep, forgotten caverns of the Grand Canyon, where untold horrors wait lurking in the darkness.

Think Dan Brown meets Michael Crichton with the dark claustrophobic horror of ‘The Descent’ (2005) pulling it all together…

NEW INTERVIEW: Phil Sloman (October 2018)

October 19, 2018
If you’ve read any good horror anthologies over the last few years, chances are you’ve read some of British author Phil Sloman’s work.  The man’s more prolific than jack-o’ lanterns are at Halloween.  Known predominantly for his short stories (at the moment at least), Sloman has become a veritable master at producing unsettling tales of terror that often deal with a slipping state of sanity.

With an impressive number of tales soon to be published, as well as a few other pieces curren...

NEW REVIEW: Richard Ayre - Minstrel's Requiem (2018)

October 13, 2018
British author Richard Ayre’s latest offering ‘Minstrel’s Requiem’ (2018) forms the third and final instalment in his hard rock pulp horror ‘Prophecy Trilogy’.  If you’ve already read the first two books then you’ll have a fair idea of what to expect.  Murder, mayhem and an eons old evil that just won’t stop.  And book three delivers this in abundance…

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 Go...

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!

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!
