John F D Taff recommends
We Are Monsters (2015)
Brian Kirk
"Brian Kirk’s debut novel We Are Monsters is a sure bet. A hippy-trippy jaunt that goes deep into the baser things we keep bottled up… and what happens when they’re freed. Highly recommended!"
Mulgara (2019)
David Rose
"David Rose's Mulgara: The Necromancer's Will is a great blend of fantasy, horror and even humor. Caught me off guard as to how fun it was to read... And I think it will you, too."
Devil's Creek (2020)
Todd Keisling
"Todd Keisling's Devil's Creek is a thunderous jolt of that good old-time religion...or so we're lead to believe. Keisling handles this tale of a mysterious backwoods cult with aplomb, deftly moving the reader through the horror of American small towns and their secrets. Very much recommended."
