Short Story – All…Fall…Down!

A Halloween Treat With No Tricks Attached Halloween. A time for ghoulish activities like trick-or-treating, costume parties, carving pumpkins into Jack-o’-Lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, watching horror films, and telling scary stories. I’m always up for a good horror movie (or a bad one), but the last item on the list is … Continue reading Short Story – All…Fall…Down!

Book Review – The Fearing (Book Two, Water & Wind) by John F.D. Taff

Grey Matter Press’s spectacular serialization of John F.D. Taff’s “The Fearing” continues with “Book Two: Water & Wind.” Once again, let me say a big “thank you” to Anthony Rivera for the advanced reader copy. I devoured this installment of Taff’s apocalyptic epic over the course of a Sunday afternoon and was taken hostage from … Continue reading Book Review – The Fearing (Book Two, Water & Wind) by John F.D. Taff
