What an issue!

DLS Reviews continues to make their way through the back issues of Jack Bantry’s superb ‘Splatterpunk Zine’ with issue five getting a full dissection.  And it’s one of the best issues yet, with Adam Cesare’s short story – a love letter to VHS video nasties – receiving a rare perfect score of DLS Skulls.  An absolute must have issue…

NEW REVIEW: Jack Bantry - Splatterpunk's Not Dead (2016)

Posted by Chris Hall on Saturday, November 19, 2016, In : New Review 
Jack Bantry’s ‘Splatterpunk Zine’ is something special.  It brought back that much missed and universally loved DIY zine ethos.  From the very first issue it bled the blood, sweat and tears of one man’s passion for the subject matter.

From the resulting popularity of Bantry’s cut-paste-and-staple zine, a proper paperback anthology was born.  Bantry’s ‘Splatterpunk’s Not Dead’ (2016) anthology offers up eight new horror stories, ranging from new upcoming names, to well-establi...

Posted by Chris Hall on Monday, November 30, 2015, In : New Review 
The latest gore-drenched publication to come from the Splatterpunk Zine crew is the limited edition chapbook ‘Atrocious Madness’ (2015) that contains three previously published short stories by Jack Bantry and Nathan Robinson.

You know the score by now.  These publications are essential purchases for those that like their horror grim and guttural.  Stupendous cover art by Nick Gucker and Mike Dickinson too!

NEW REVIEW: Michael Marano - Dawn Song (1998)

Posted by Chris Hall on Wednesday, June 3, 2015, In : New Review 
It’s seems like a veritable age since a review was last added to DLS Reviews.  There’s been a few things going on of late which has kept me from dedicating as much time as I would have liked to reading and reviewing.  Hopefully it’s just a temporary cloud of busyness which will soon pass.

Anyway, just added to the site is a full dissection of US author Michael Marano’s debut offering ‘Dawn Song’ (1998).  Recently rereleased through ChiZine containing additional introductions, an af...

NEW REVIEW: Splatterpunk Zine - Issue 3

Posted by Chris Hall on Friday, May 22, 2015, In : New Review 
As regulars to the site will know, I’ve been working my way through the back issues of Jack Bantry’s ‘Splatterpunk Zine’…and I have to say I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.  So far there’s not been a single dud story.  In fact, I’d go so far as to say that the zine is pretty much essential horror reading.  If you haven’t already got your grubby mitts on any of these zines, then you need to correct this error immediately.

Anyway, now added to DLS Reviews is a full in-depth diss...

NEW REVIEW: Melanie Tem - The Yellow Wood (2015)

Posted by Chris Hall on Wednesday, April 29, 2015, In : New Review 
Next to be put under the DLS Reviews spotlight is Melanie Tem’s last offering before she sadly passed away – a quietly unsettling tale entitled ‘The Yellow Wood’ (2015).  Admittedly, not the most impactful or action-rich of story’s, instead Tem’s novel creeps under your skin and slowly influences your senses.

Beautifully written and enchanting in its lyrical prose.  Such as shame that this is the last tale to come from such a talented author.

NEW REVIEW: Splatterpunk Zine - Issue 2

Posted by Chris Hall on Saturday, April 4, 2015, In : New Review 
Really enjoying working through the previous issues of Splatterpunk Zine.  Now dissected and reviewed on DLS Reviews is ‘Splatterpunk Zine – Issue 2’ (2012).  And I have to say that the first story in there, ‘Fair Trade’ by Jeff Strand, is an absolute belter.

If you’re not already buying each issue of this zine…then why the hell not?!  Absolutely great stuff.

DLS Reviews puts ‘Splatterpunk Zine’ on the dissection table

Posted by Chris Hall on Monday, February 23, 2015, In : New Review 
Well DLS Reviews has undergone a very minor bit of surgery in order to accommodate a new addition to the site.  It’s something I’ve been meaning to add to DLS Reviews for a while now.  And now I’ve finally gotten around to doing it!  In a nutshell, the site no longer has the ‘Fear’ and ‘Skeleton’ menu links located along the Menu bar at the top.  Instead they’ve been replaced with the new menu link ‘Zines’.  Here you’ll be able to access the ‘FEAR Magazine’ and ‘Sk...
