Little Stories for The Smallest Room: a collection of LITTLE TALES to read whilst on the Loo

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Entertaining., November 1, 2012
This books title describes it perfectly.
Over 100 short, very short (Drabs - 100 words) tales of horror, blood and pain that can be read in a few trembling heartbeats.
Stories that include death, zombies, killer gingerbread men, the Devil and much much more.

I found this to be highly entertaining and perfect for a quick read. Each tale is short and the book can be set down and lifted at any time to be enjoyed for another few minutes.


Caballistics, Inc #2: Better the Devil
Caballistics, Inc #2: Better the Devil
by Mike Wild
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
22 used & new from $1.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable., September 13, 2012
Better The Devil is the 2nd novel in Mike Wild's Caballistics,INC series.
I found this installment to be just as much fun and just as exciting as the first in the series, "Hell On Earth."
I would recommend that anyone wanting to read these novels should do so in order due to the fact that even though they are separate tales, the first does provide a good introduction to each character and their "group", whereas number 2 just jumps straight into the action.

Mike Wild has a style of writing that is very easy to read and also fun, his little nods to modern culture are dashed throughout the book and provide the reader with a little chuckle from time to time. His ability to write action that rolls of the page just like the reader is watching a film is second to none and the humour is both enjoyable and very well timed throughout the story.
The overall story is enjoyable and it is apparent the author has taken a lot of time to plot out the details and research "history" to make the read even more enjoyable.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the world of supernatural horror/comedy. (Think Hellboy in Novel form.)


Trust
Trust

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust Me, it's good., May 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Trust (Paperback)
David Moody is without a doubt one of the best apocalyptic writers around today. He has created many different types of 'MAN' killing events within his fiction. From zoimbies to a dying sun and genetic differences causing war. In TRUST he leaves the apocalypse up to an invasion of aliens.

Written in the first person, TRUST starts off running, literally as the main character is out for his daily jog and metaphorically as the pace of the book is quick and remains so throughout the entire story.

David Moody has created an alien invasion unlike any other I have read about or seen in a movie. This time there seems little hope for mankind. The story is gripping, the setting is believable and premise is quite chilling. He has once again created the perfect apocalypse. One where the reader is left thinking, "We're all doomed".

I highly recommend this book, just like I highly recommend everything David Moody writes. He is quickly becoming my favourite author of all time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable and well written., May 18, 2012
This review is from: Apartment 16 (Paperback)
I really enjoyed Apartment 16 by Adam Nevill.
It was not the scariest novel I've read nor the creepiest, but it is a horror all the same and therefore does supply the reader with a few, well earned shivers down the spine and looks over the shoulder at night.

The story is good and the idea, though not entirely original, is fresh because not many authors tackle this kind of horror these days apart from Stephen King and a handful of others. (to my knowledge).

The main reason I really enjoyed this book was the writing itself. Adam Nevill is an talented author and his style is both entertaining and enjoyable to read. He is able to put the reader right into the page and describe everything perfectly.

I will definately be reading more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Anthology., May 17, 2012
This review is from: Dead Souls (Paperback)
Dead Souls is an excellent anthology of zombie based tales.
Every story is well written and very entertaining. The layout and formatting of the anthology is also very good.
While every short in this book is good, there are 2 stories that stood out for me;
The first was, 'Push Button, Get Bacon' by KT Jayne, a well written and emotionally driven story that blew me away.
The second was, 'A New Breed' by Suzanne Robb. Also very well written, it was exciting, original and has left me wanting more. I hope to see this story expanded into a novel in the future.

Overall - one of the better anthologies I have read in many years.

Caballistics, Inc #1: Hell on Earth
by Mike Wild

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., April 11, 2012
Having stumbled upon Hell on Earth by Mike Wild after a random recommendation, I was extremely surprised to find that this book is pure class from start to finish. Why had I never heard of Caballistics, Inc or this author before?

The story is a mix of horror, action, thriller and comedy all rolled into a perfect ball of hilarious, gory, nerdy, fun that had me laughing out loud and eager to read more about the characters involved within its pages.

I found the story to be very reminiscent of Hellboy - being it involves a cast of characters who all work for a paranormal investigative group (Caballistics, Inc), who travel the length and breadth of Britain to fight evil in all forms, from vampires to demons or Nazis to werewolves. But that's where the similarity ends. These characters and this book are far more dark and adult in orientation and the comedy is a hell of a lot funnier.

The plot of this book is exciting and enthralling and has obviously been well thought out and planned before execution as every scene and twist perfectly blends into the next one leaving no stone unturned and leading to an explosive climax that has left me thirsty for more.

After reading `Hell on Earth', I immediately ordered the sequel in the series and I am also extremely interested in getting the comic book series also. I am hooked already. I am also interested to see what Mike Wild has to offer with his other books as his writing style is easy to read and very entertaining.


Doll Parts
Doll Parts
by Wayne Simmons
Edition: Paperback
40 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and Fierce, April 4, 2012
This review is from: Doll Parts (Paperback)
Doll Parts is the sequel to Wayne Simmons novel 'Drop Dead Gorgeous' starting were the previous book left off. Filled with action, gore, horror and a brilliant story. This book starts off running and never slows down - giving the reader a thrill ride to remember.

I can honestly say that this is one of the most original horror novels I have read in many years. Simmons has created a monster that will stay in your head and gut for years after finishing the book. He has taken the 'zombie' and turned it on its head - maybe even turning it into something altogether different (I'll let you discover what by yourself).

With harrowing scenes and blood soaked action, this book is a page turner. Never relenting in gut wrenching horror and shocks that will keep you glued to its pages. I couldn't put it down.

Over the last year I have became a massive fan of this authors work and I have to admit that this is his best book to date. It's originality and fresh angle works wonders for the story and his great skill at creating diverse and interesting characters shines in this novel.

I highly recommend this book to everyone. I cannot wait to see what Wayne Simmons has in store for us next.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fast Unforgiving Killer Fever, March 19, 2012
This review is from: Fever (Paperback)
Wayne Simmons has outdone himself with this fantastic sequel (prequel) to his brilliant novel Flu.
The story starts of fast and continues at a break-neck speed right until the very end giving the reader, all out action and a plot that will leave you begging for more.

The horror in this book is gory and violent. The zombies are those of the traditional Romero style, shambling through the book and ripping the throats of the characters you grow to love.... but the real class and story telling comes from the intricate plot Wayne Simmons has created. Conspiracy and Government cover ups drip from the pages of this book and the thrill and suspense created by the author will keep you gripped until the very end.

The little nods to Flu - dashed throughout Fever's chapters, helps the reader to connect the plot to the orignal and also reminds us that there are survivors from the first instalment, just waiting to be rescued. The subtle hints the author gives us provide a nostalgic excitement and keeps the reader emotionally involved with the characters.

I highly recommend this book to fans of the genre. It is possibly one of the best plot driven zombie novels available today and Wayne Simmons has once again proved he is one of the leading new voices in the horror genre. All praise must go the authors ability to create such a great story, with such a twisting plot that remains exciting throughout the entire book.

I want more....

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast and Horrific, February 17, 2012
A great idea for a book. An Anthology made up of 100 horror stories, written in 100 words.
Each tale gives the reader a different angle, sensation and outlook on horror.
A great gift for any horror fan and a great way to discover new upcoming or established authors.
Loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Das 'Zee' Boot, February 15, 2012
This review is from: Z-Boat (Paperback)
A world torn apart by human consumption and greed. Pollution destroying our food source, air supply and clean water. Governments at war over fuel and power.

A perfect post apocalyptic world for any novel and Suzanne Robb manages to fit all of that into the very first page. I knew immediately that I was going to enjoy this novel.

The action all takes place on an independently owned submarine, which is hired out by governments and companies alike to search the depths of the high seas for new fuel sources, clean water or (in this case) a missing sub that has literally gone off radar. The crew of the Betty Loo are a mismatched group of alcoholics, gamblers, deserters and friends. But when their new job entails taking on a few new members - ALL hell breaks lose as paranoia and suspicions increase in the closed claustrophobic atmosphere of the underwater vessel.

The authors writing style is great at capturing the moods and suspicions of each crew member. With every new chapter the pages seep with the fears and paranoia that the crew must face and as the reader, you can feel the claustrophobia take over as you advance through the story.

The story gathers speed as the Betty Loo appraoches its missions destination and then the plot explodes into a frantic battle against the undead that lie in wait for the resuce team.

I would highly recommend this book to any fan of the genre. It is exciting, fun and a joy to read. Being Suzanne Robbs' first novel. I am eagerly awaiting more from her talented imagination.
