You reading enough?

Well you may think you are but honestly if you've not picked up at least one of these, then you really need to be changing some priorities over the next few months...

Allyson Bird: Has a lovely looking site, designed by the wonderfully talented Vincent Chong. Bull Running for Girls has been nominated for best collection at this year's Fantasy Con and I'm lucky enough to be receiving my signed copy on arrival!

Jenny Blackford: Has released The Priestess and the Slave, I'm very much looking forward to this, and yes, I have ordered my copy - you got yours yet?

Carole Johnstone: Has a new novella out. Frenzy has already been released and guess what, yes, I will be getting my signed copy in September!

Kaaron Warren: Has already released Slights, and of course it's excellent and of course I've read it!

Robert Hood: Released his collection Creeping in Reptile Flesh. I have my copy and have started it. Anyone not having read Hood should do so immediately!

Gary McMahon: Is releasing Different Skins at Fantasy Con. Lovely cover and I've no doubt fantastic work within. I'll be buying a copy of that you can be sure!

Cate Gardner: Has released her little chapbook, The Sour Aftertaste of Olive Lemon. Much shorter than I wanted it to be but some lovely imagery in there and well worth a read!

So, off you go, go buy some books!

How to Make Monsters review (yes another good one!)

This time from the wonderful Sharon Ring, deputy editor over at Science Fiction and Fantasy Ethics (SFEE for short).

How to Make Monsters review

The book can be ordered online, although there are few copies left…so grab yours before it’s too late!

Purchase How to Make Monsters and make sure to get some light bulbs while you’re at it, as you won’t want to turn the light off again!

Two reviews for Morrigan Books' titles

First up is a review of The Even, over at A Writer Goes on a Journey:

The Even

and then we have a review of How to Make Monsters at Horrorworld:

How To Make Monsters
(scroll down for review)

Both reviews are positive and while I am not so sure I agree with the charge of 'less than stellar editing' (from a reviewer who knows not where apostrophes live) and even though I wish the reviewer of How To Make Monsters would work on getting Gary's titles right, it seems these two are rather popular books just at present!

The Even can be purchased here

and How to Make Monsters here

Voices review


“Voices” is a nice collection of horror stories that deals more with the supernatural and paranormal aspects of the genre and less or almost not at all with the gory and macabre part. Also the anthology edited by Mark S. Deniz and Amanda Pillar presents new or established authors of the genre and I personally discovered through “Voices” a few names that stirred my interest.

Read the review over at Dark Wolf

And you can always buy the book at the Morrigan Books site!
