One quick highlight: “When I think of werewolves from now on, I’ll be thinking of Jonathan Janz’ werewolves. His larger than life […]Read more "“The Best Werewolf Novel I’ve Ever Read”"
A confession: I love lists. When I was an adolescent, one of the few books I would actually read (and read and read and read) was THE BOOK OF LISTS. I eventually branched out to THE BOOK OF LISTS TWO, which only fed the list-crazy beast inside of me. I never checked out THE BOOK […]Read more "Brian Keene Names DUST DEVILS the Fifth-Best Book of 2014"

We’re a few short hours away, folks. I can’t wait for you to check this one out. Like my other three novellas (OLD ORDER, THE CLEARING OF TRAVIS COBLE, and WITCHING HOUR THEATRE), EXORCIST ROAD is told from a single point-of-view. Like those stories, this novella takes place over a very short period of time. But […]Read more "Lock Your Doors. EXORCIST ROAD Drops at Midnight…"
EXORCIST ROAD is coming. If you haven’t heard about this brand-new plus-sized novella, here’s the description: Possessed by a demon…or by the urge to kill? Chicago is gripped by terror. “The Sweet Sixteen Killer” is brutally murdering sixteen-year-old girls, and the authorities are baffled.

Howdy, all! The title of this post is a little misleading because the trope (you could also call it a theme in this circumstance) I’m about to talk about occurs in many non-zombie horror novels. However, I associate it with zombies because, well, they’re everywhere, and some of the best examples of what I’m talking […]Read more "CASTLE OF SORROWS: Using a Zombie Trope in a Non-Zombie Novel"
Okay, I know I omitted the the from the blog post title, but the rhythm was better without it, okay? And if you’re really so hung up on articles in titles, I’ll point you to THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION and ask you how often the the is uttered there, and— You say the the? Never mind.
