The Lesser Dead by Christopher Buehlman

The Lesser Dead by Christopher Buehlman

The Lesser Dead by Christopher Buehlman (Berkley, Oct. 7th, 2014)-I know what you’re thinking (or might be thinking): ugh, vampires, soooo done to death (sorry about that). But bear with me, here. We’re talking about Christopher Buehlman, author of Those Across the River, The Necromancer’s House, and Between Two Fires. This man has a very solid history of excellence, so when I saw that The Lesser Dead was a vampire … Continue reading

Jon Bassoff, on things that go bump, and his new book, Factory Town

Jon Bassoff’s brand new book, Factory Town, just came out this month from DarkFuse, and he was kind enough to answer a few of my questions about it, and more! I’m very, very excited about Factory Town! Will you tell us more about it? Well, it’s unlike anything I’ve ever written before. My writing tends toward the surreal and the grotesque, but I certainly went a bit overboard with this … Continue reading

We Are Not Good People by Jeff Somers

We Are Not Good People by Jeff Somers

We Are Not Good People by Jeff Somers (Gallery, Oct 7th, 2014)-Warning: I reviewed Trickster a while back, and this is the coverage of book 2 in the Ustari series, which is included in one volume here with Trickster, so there are inevitable spoilers for the first book. If you’re not caught up, feel free to catch my Trickster review. Otherwise, proceed at your own risk! I was blown away … Continue reading

The Wolf in Winter (Charlie Parker #12) by John Connolly

The Wolf in Winter (Charlie Parker #12) by John Connolly

The Wolf in Winter by John Connolly (Emily Bestler, Oct 28th, 2014)-Prosperous, Maine is an interesting little town. The name is a perfect fit, because for ages, they’ve been a town of prosper, and tolerance, and general well-being, and if their little church, the Congregation of Adam Before Eve & Eve Before Adam (brought brick by brick from Northumbria, in England), is a little odd, well, there are always odd … Continue reading

The Undying by Ethan Reid

The Undying by Ethan Reid

The Undying by Ethan Reid (Simon451, Oct. 7th, 2014)-The apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic genre is very, very crowded right now, and for good reason. It’s a fascinating setup for a story, but it can make finding good ones hard. I found a good one in The Undying, Ethan Reid’s debut novel, and one of the first books from S&S’s new SFF imprint Simon451. The Undying starts at the end, well, not … Continue reading
