Review: The Incurables by Jon Bassoff

  9/10 I absolutely loved this book. It was dark, twisted,  gory in parts and psychologically messed up – what’s not to love?! Jon Bassoff is now on my list of authors to look out for, I gather that he’s previous work is equally awesome and has been adapted for the tellybox. This book was […]

Review : The Visit

9.5/10 This book was recommended to me by one of my  Twitter followers after a plea for a decent horror book, this has taught me that I can trust the advice of strangers. I’m not going to say anything about the author though details are readily available online, I recommend reading the book before doing […]
