How about this for a celebrity endorsement? This is our good friend Barbie Wilde, who should be known to all horror aficionados as the actress who played the Female Cenobite in Hellbound: Hellraiser II and is also an author in her own right (we thoroughly recommend her novel The Venus Complex), and here she is encouraging you all to go out and buy a copy of Stephen Volk’s Whitstable, if you haven’t done so already. She bought it, and the first thing we knew about it was when she posted a status on Facebook to say how much she loved it. Now, you really don’t want the Female Cenobite to haunt your nightmares, do you? We suggest you follow her lead and buy a copy today.
CREAKERS by Paul Kane
The latest issue of the FREE Morpheus Tales Review Supplement (#21) is now available for download (get it here), and it carries a review by Stanley Riiks of Spectral chapbook #9, Paul Kane’s Creakers. Here are a couple of choice quotes from the it:
“I didn’t think a short story could touch me, make me feel, creep me out… Kane manages to literally send shivers down your spine in this tense and disturbing tale….”
“One of the best chapbooks so far, and that’s from a truly epic collection. Stunningly good, this is Kane at his very best.”
Thanks to Stanley for such a brilliant review – please note, however, that this chapbook is now SOLD OUT!
In the same issue, you can also read the latest installment of my Ramblings of a Tattooed Head column.
More reviews soon!
