Everything the Darkness Eats (2023)
Eric LaRocca
"Sherwood Anderson this isn't. In Everything the Darkness Eats, Eric LaRocca has created a truly modern horror story that boldly illuminates the harsh realities of life in contemporary small town America. His Henley's Edge is not your stereotypical community where everyone's a neighbor and every neighbor's a friend. It's a town where depression and loneliness thrive, where intolerance and bigotry undermine civic institutions, where isolation turns even loved ones into strangers. Horror fiction doesn't get more emotionally raw than this. A smart, sharp read with echoes of King's Needful Things and Barker's The Damnation Game, Everything the Darkness Eats not only has one hell of a good title, it's one hell of a good book."

The Stones In The Field (2016)
Michael Stephan Oates
"A profoundly heartbreaking work that digs into Personal costs of a kidnapping and terrorism."
thumb
Dungeon Brain (2012)
Benjamin Kane Ethridge
"[Ethridge] may very well point the way to the future of the genre."
