NEW REVIEW: Matt Shaw & J.R. Park - Postal (2017)

Posted by Chris Hall on Monday, August 28, 2017, In : New Review 
What happens when an extreme horror author and a pulp horror author join forces?  Well, you’ll undoubtedly get a grisly bloodbath with all the gut-churning trimmings.  But when you’re talking about two authors who tend to weave multiple layers and dynamics into their grim tales, who like to mess with your head at the same time as taking a stab at modern society – then you’re going to be in for a full-bodied treat that offers up far more than its page count would have led you to believ...

NEW REVIEW: Jonathan Butcher - What Good Girls Do (2017)

Posted by Chris Hall on Wednesday, August 23, 2017, In : New Review 
It’s not often that you come across a book that screws with your head so much that it leaves you feeling cold to the very core.  Jonathan Butcher’s ‘What Good Girls Do’ (2017) may only be a relatively short read, but it does just that.  It messes with you.

Absolutely no part of this book is entertaining.  It’s brutal, uncompromising and emotionally draining.  The prose flays your skin, before the story flings you into a vat of salt, burning your senses with a sensory overload of hurt...

If you’ve not checked out Darkwater Syndicate’s award-winning ‘Shadows And Teeth’ series yet, then trust me, you’re seriously missing out on some damn fine horror anthology goodness.  Not only that but these books seem to be getting better and better.

DLS Reviews lays ‘Shadows And Teeth: Volume Three’ (2017) out on the mortuary table to deliver a full story-by-story dissection of the beast.  And what a ferocious beast it is…

NEW REVIEW: Guy N Smith - Come On In And Join Us (2004)

Posted by Chris Hall on Sunday, August 20, 2017, In : New Review 
Another day, another Guy N Smith chapbook dissected and added to the ever-expanding pages of DLS Reviews.  Here we have Smith’s ‘Come On In And Join Us’ (2004) which was published as a limited edition hand-numbered standalone chapbook by Horror Express Publications back in 2004.

Okay, so this one was a bit of a cheat.  The story had already been reviewed on DLS Reviews a number of years ago.  As such this new review doesn’t add much new, other than details on the chapbook itself.

NEW REVIEW: Guy N Smith - Hunting Big Cats In Britain (2000)

Posted by Chris Hall on Monday, August 14, 2017, In : New Review 
With the theme for this year’s Annual Guy N Smith Fan Convention being ‘Dangerous Wild Animals in Britain’, what better time to read and review Guy’s well-informed overview on the subject of big cats potentially living wild in Britain.

Originally published through Guy’s own Blackhill Books in 2000 (with a subsequent reprint in 2004), and then later rereleased in a new edition through Ghostwriter Publications in 2009, Guy N Smith’s chapbook ‘Hunting Big Cats In Britain’ (2000) o...

NEW REVIEW: Jonathan Green - Shakespeare vs Cthulhu (2016)

Posted by Chris Hall on Thursday, August 10, 2017, In : New Review 
There’s just so much Lovecraftian fiction out there these days.  And why the hell not?  Lovecraft was an absolute master of penning the very darkest of cosmic horror.  His mythos has left a legacy that has inspired horror writers the world over.  As indeed had the Bard of Stratford himself – the master playwright William Shakespeare.

The genius behind the ‘Shakespeare vs Cthulhu’ (2016) anthology is the splicing together of the two.  On paper you’d think it wouldn’t work.  But it d...
