Book Review: The Doll by JC Martin

Most little girls love dolls and will do anything to have the one they want. Joyce Parker’s daughter, Taylor, is no different. On a mother-daughter getaway to Mexico, the girls decide to visit an unusual tourist attraction: The Island of the Dolls. On the island, there are hundreds of dolls hanging from the trees and placed on altars in various stages of decomposition and disarray. Warned not to disturb anything on the island, Joyce is already unnerved enough by the atmosphere and carefully watches Taylor as she admires the eerily beautiful dolls; but close enough.

Book Review: THEY by Vincent Hobbes

Deserted, rural, back mountain roads are unsettling in their own right, but add a blinding snow storm and four unnerved vacationers – it’s a recipe for disaster. Vincent Hobbes' short story THEY, is the embodiment of any traveler’s worst nightmare.

Book Review: The Inheritance of a Swamp Witch by Sonia Taylor Brock

Who hasn’t had the tiniest notion of being the one to discover something new and exciting at some point in one’s career or life? Technically, I suppose that can be argued, but for my sake, let’s just agree to some extent that everyone wants to be a part of something unique, yes? Finding where one belongs and what one is destined for in their life is the foundation of Sonia Taylor Brock’s book one of the Swamp Witch series, The Inheritance of a Swamp Witch.

Book Review: Sara Brooke's Still Lake

Idyllic Smalltown, USA is a paramount setting for horrific events in literature - It’s the perfect place for everyone to feel extremely safe in their collective naivety to any outside threats. Sara Brooke’s tiny community of Flening is a prime example of this falsely secure mindset. Flening is a tiny landlocked town in Northwest Florida with a population well under a thousand. Brooke’s small town is pretty predictable and any social events that occur usually do so around the several churches within the county limits, or the one body of water, Still Lake.

Book Review: Richard Bachman's The Long Walk

Public enjoyment of others' grueling and gut-wrenching struggles has been a common phenomenon since humanoids decided to pretend to function using our brains. From the Colosseum to Bravo, it seems everyone loves a good Roman holiday. Richard Bachman’s (Stephen King incognito, for those unhip) 1979 novel The Long Walk perfectly illustrates man's dark desire to see others suffer.
