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: Duncan P. Bradshaw - Chump (2016)

Posted by Chris Hall on Sunday, May 21, 2017, In : New Review 
Zombies zombies zombies.  British author Duncan P. Bradshaw frigging loves ‘em.  So it’s absolutely no surprise that the whacky zombie-nut has released a collection of zombie short stories entitled ‘Chump’ (2016).

DLS Reviews offers up a full story-by-story dissection of this undead feast (it’d be rude not to).  From the Wild West, to rage-infected superhumans in a Russian Sports Facility, to a Special Ops team working their way through the heart of London, to a deliveryman and a doo...

NEW REVIEW: Duncan Ralston - Woom (2016)

Posted by Chris Hall on Saturday, October 1, 2016, In : New Review 
I’ve read some messed-up stories in my time, but there’s not many that have left me feeling as wiped out as Duncan Ralston’s ‘Woom’ (2016).

Released through Matt Shaw’s ‘Black Cover’ series – this is extreme horror at its absolute finest.  It also achieved a very rare 10/10 over at DLS Reviews.

Man I need a shower after reading that…

NEW REVIEW: Duncan P. Bradshaw - Hexagram (2016)

Posted by Chris Hall on Friday, July 15, 2016, In : New Review 
Duncan P. Bradshaw is a machine.  Surely he can’t be anything but!  He churns out well-crafted and fantastically imaginative novels so prolifically that it’s nigh-on-impossible to keep up with the strange out-of-control locomotive that is his literary output.

DLS Reviews has once again clambered aboard the speeding Bradshaw Express to see what weird and wonderful delights he has in store for us this time.

Entitled ‘Hexagram’ (2016) Bradshaw’s latest offering (due out 25th July 2016) i...

NEW REVIEW: Duncan P. Bradshaw - Celebrity Culture (2016)

Posted by Chris Hall on Tuesday, April 5, 2016, In : New Review 
I don’t think I’ve ever written anything that’s used the words ‘strange’, ‘crazy’ or ‘perverse’ as many times as I have when reviewing Duncan P. Bradshaw’s novella ‘Celebrity Culture’ (2016).  For those who’ve already dipped their inquisitive toes into the crazy-ass world of Bizarro fiction – you’ll probably still want to brace yourself.  And for those that have no idea what to expect, but who are nevertheless keen to embark upon an exploratory journey into Brads...

NEW REVIEW: Duncan Ralston - Salvage (2015)

Posted by Chris Hall on Saturday, October 31, 2015, In : New Review 
I returned to the UK yesterday having spent the last fifteen days in the US on holiday with my wife and kids.  Whilst we were away there wasn’t much of an opportunity to plough through books.  However, whilst the family watched films during the flights either way, I was able to immerse myself in Duncan Ralston’s latest offering – ‘Salvage’ (2015).

It's a dark and oppressive ghost story with a thick fog of mystery smothering the character-driven storyline.  It’s one of those stories...

NEW INTERVIEW: Duncan Ralston - September 2015

Posted by Chris Hall on Thursday, October 1, 2015, In : New Interview 
DLS Reviews is chuffed as hell to announce that an in-depth and incredibly insightful interview with one of the most exciting new voices in horror fiction – Duncan Ralston – is now up on the site.  If you like ‘Books Of Blood’ era Clive Barker, or simply stories that mess with your insides, and you’ve not yet checked out this guy’s work, then I strongly recommend you rectify this oversight immediately.

He’s got a short story collection entitled ‘Gristle & Bone’ (2014) out now...

NEW REVIEW: Duncan P. Bradshaw - Class Four: Those Who Survive (2015)

Posted by Chris Hall on Friday, September 11, 2015, In : New Review 
Another sizeable break from reviewing (mostly due to not one but two last minute holidays to Tenby and Scotland) has resulted in a noticeably quiet couple of weeks at DLS Central.  However the silence has been broken by a new in-depth review – this time for Duncan P. Bradshaw’s sequel ‘Class Four: Those Who Survive’ (2015).

It’s an unsuspecting assault on the gut, delivering blood-drenched violent horror married with the very darkest of wit.

Oh how I enjoyed this one!

I’m also curren...

NEW REVIEW: Duncan P. Bradshaw - Class Three (2014)

Posted by Chris Hall on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, In : New Review 
Next up on DLS Reviews is an in-depth carving-up of Duncan P. Bradshaw’s debut novel - a comical zombie apocalypse story entitled ‘Class Three’ (2014).  To sum it up, here’s an excerpt from the review...

“If you enjoy a blood-drenched story involving a zombie apocalypse, with a thick wedge of comedy thrown into it, then this is one you’ll not want to miss.  Plenty of guts, a shed load of violence, and doused from head to toe in comedy.  Absolutely superb stuff.”

NEW REVIEW: Duncan Ralston - Gristle & Bone (2014)

Posted by Chris Hall on Tuesday, July 14, 2015, In : New Review 
Chances are you’ve not heard the name Duncan Ralston before.  If you have, and you’ve already read some of the Canadian author’s work, then you’ll probably be having the same thoughts as me.  This man can write horror.  And surely it’s only a matter of time before his name becomes well-known to the vast majority of the horror community.

The collection ‘Gristle & Bone’ (2014) was my introduction to Ralston’s work.  It includes his debut release – a novella called ‘Scavengers...
