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: Terry Grimwood - Deadside Revolution (2016)

Posted by Chris Hall on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, In : New Review 
There’s a hell of a lot of Zombie Apocalypse fiction out there.  More often than not the tales are just another rehash of the same old tired plot.  However, every now and again a zombie title comes out that completely breaks the mould.  British author Terry Grimwood’s novel ‘Deadside Revolution’ (2016) is one such novel.

Here we see religion, politics and class war jostling for position in a dystopian tale where the Dead rule over our once great cities and the Living are either farmed ...

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: David Moody - Last Of The Living (2014)

Posted by Chris Hall on Thursday, October 30, 2014, In : New Review 
Not really a ‘new’ review per se, David Moody’s latest double-novella and short story collection, ‘Last Of The Living’ (2014), has now been added to DLS Reviews.  I say it’s not really a new review because it copies word-for-word all of the content from the reviews of Moody’s earlier ebook-only collections – ‘The Cost Of Living’ (2014) and ‘Isolation’ (2014).

But for completeness if nothing else the reviews have been combined into the one volume as the stories in Moody...

NEW REVIEW: David Moody - Isolation (2014)

Posted by Chris Hall on Thursday, September 4, 2014, In : New Review 
Wow, it’s been a busy couple of weeks.  Unfortunately not so much with DLS Reviews but more with work, home life, the family and of course this NATO Summit jazz going on in Cardiff (where I work).

Anyway, in-between and amongst the veritable maelstrom that is life in general, I managed to read, review and thoroughly enjoy author David Moody’s latest offering – ‘Isolation’ (2014).  It’s a post-apocalyptic novella, wrapped up with an additional four zombie apocalypse short stories ...

NEW REVIEW: Wayne Simmons - Flu (2010)

Posted by Chris Hall on Tuesday, August 12, 2014, In : New Review 
After reading (and thoroughly enjoying) Wayne Simmons’ recent novella ‘The Girl In The Basement’ (2014), I was inspired to check out some more of his work.  So I duly picked up his zombie apocalypse novel ‘Flu’ (2010).  After all – I’m somewhat partial to a good yarn involving our favourite undead friends.

It turned out to be an absolutely cracking read.  Definitely recommended – even if you’re getting a little tired of the zombie premise now.  Simmons has his own take on the...

NEW REVIEW: Ian Woodhead - The Unwashed Dead (2011)

Posted by Chris Hall on Tuesday, August 5, 2014, In : New Review 
Another day, another review!  Today’s addition to DLS Reviews is of British indie author, Ian Woodhead’s, early novel ‘The Unwashed Dead’ (2011).  To be honest it’s about time I got around to reading some more of this author’s work.  Thoroughly nice fella.  And from the little I’ve read of his work thus far (which has admittedly just been two of his early novels), I can see there’s absolutely bucket loads of potential in what he’s offering up.  Although I have to say that th...

NEW INTERVIEW: David Moody - July 2014

Posted by Chris Hall on Monday, August 4, 2014, In : New Interview 
I am over the moon to be able to announce that the first interview on DLS Reviews is now published and it’s with none other than internationally renowned post-apocalyptic author David Moody.  As you’ve probably guessed from the various reviews that are on this site, I’m quite a fan of his work.  So I take an enormous amount of pleasure in having David as the first interview victim for DLS Reviews.
