Strange Weather by Joe Hill

There are four novellas in this rather impressive collection. Here’s my reviews of each of them. Snapshot A strange story that starts out bright and brilliantly and then fades away – almost as if it is itself an old polaroid photo. Back in the 1980s, a young boy encounters a now senile woman of his…

Artemis by Andy Weir

Having raced through Andy Weir’s THE MARTIAN and loved it, there had to be some reason why I just let the follow-up linger on my Kindle for so long. (It’s been there since not long after publication, getting mouldy, or whatever it is neglected digital files do.) If I had to guess I would say…

The Night Stalker by Chris Carter

I do enjoy the occasional trashy serial thriller. I don’t want to say that they’re a guilty pleasure, as why should you feel guilty about a piece of entertainment you enjoy? But, when reading one, I can certainly turn my mind off a little. I just leap in, don’t try and second guess where the…

Foliage

MI Book Reviews

“They can run, but they can’t hide….

The end of the world has come. A horrific new disease has appeared and swiftly wiped out nearly the whole of mankind. Now four survivors – possibly the last four people alive – seek sanctuary in the remote countryside, hoping against hope that they can flee this terrible contagion which has destroyed everything in their lives.”

Foliage (Ghostly Shadows Shorts Book 1) by [Jameson, F.R.]

I got an ARC of this book.

This was a quick read, but it didn’t skimp on the horror. This is yet another great read from Jameson. This one told of an illness that seemed just downright disgusting and horrifying to endure. This is not a zombie tale, instead maybe it is a plant tale?

On page there are two graphic deaths. The deaths are gruesome in a way that I never expected. I was really grossed out. I loved it. The scream sealed the horror in…

Death at the Seaside

A lovely review of my novella, Death at the Seaside

MI Book Reviews

“Nothing was going to ruin Castle’s holiday.

Except for the mocking laughter of the dead.

Castle was anticipating a lovely break at the seaside. His glamorous film star mistress was even joining him.

However, an unexpected encounter leaves Castle reeling. There’s a chance that someone knows his darkest secret and no matter what, he’s going to have to deal with it.

All his life, Castle has been the luckiest bloke he knew.

That luck might be about to run out”

I got an ARC of this book.

This book gives the perfect example of a main character that just deserves everything bad that could possibly happen to him. From the very first page, Castle was just this awful character. He was a cheat, slimy, misogynistic, and worse. There was just so much about him to hate. I LOVED HATING HIM. There were no mixed feelings, there were no redeeming qualities…
