New Year, New Book Review! – The Stand by Stephen King

What a great start to the new year! I set out to read this at the start of the pandemic, some time in spring, 2019. It was a weird mix of wanting to read a book about the world ending due to a super-flu (wonder where I got that idea), finding the book on offer... Continue Reading →

Readers Wanted for ‘At The Gate’ – Get My Horror Novella Early

My psychological horror novella is being published next year, and I'm still over the moon with excitement about this. I can barely believe it's real. But it is - and we're getting to the point where we're looking for readers who are interested in receiving Advanced Review Copies. This is your chance to get your... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

The fact that I love thrillers, am Scandinavian, and have never actually read this book before now is kind of embarrassing. At the same time, I feel like I’ve read it many times before. I’ve read “of” it, heard about it and I’ve seen at least two of the movies (one Swedish and one American,... Continue Reading →

Book Review: In Somnio: A Collection of Modern Gothic Horror, Edited by Alex Woodroe

Woah! - What a unique collection of horror stories. I was very lucky to receive an Advanced Reader Copy of this anthology and I knew almost immediately that I had something special in my hands. I like to read mysteries, thriller, and horror because I enjoy not knowing. A big part of that is also... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Lie Down With Lions by Ken Follett

Well this was actually terrible. I probably should have stopped reading this around the 30% mark, when I first got a hunch. Unfortunately, I have a tendency to want to see things through, and I really had my hopes out for Follett because the person who gave me this book also gave me a copy... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Night of The Swarm by Robert V.S. Redick

The most incredible fantasy story I've ever had the pleasure of reading - and now it's done. I've had a difficult relationship with this series. I think I mentioned at least once or twice in all my previous reviews of Book 1, Book 2 and Book 3, how difficult I found it to grasp Redick's... Continue Reading →

Book Review: A Short History Of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

An engaging, funny, and comprehensive guide to almost everything you need to know about the world. I went into this on a few colleague's recommendation, never having heard about Bill Bryson before. In fact, it's been years since I read much non-fiction at all - probably since I graduated! I started out reading Bryson's 'A... Continue Reading →

The Chaos of a Life and Finally Finding Time To Read A Book Again! – Book Review: The Terror by Dan Simmons

It's been a weird few weeks. Ever since I moved back home from the Arctic at the start of the month, days have been blending together. I feel like I've had far too much to do and nothing at all at the same time. Like everything has changed, yet it's all the same. I've tried... Continue Reading →
