TGR: Where did your love of reading and writing come from? I can’t really say I know the source, but I can say that I have always been intrigued by characters. As early as I can remember, I would create an ongoing narrative for my action figures and toys. They’d have relationships, beef between them, ranks, et cetera. I’m sure many kids did … Continue reading Interview: Today I welcome a fellow Adrian to the blog. Please welcome A. A. Medina!
I’ve been gobbling up quite a few anthologies and magazines featuring short stories so far in 2018. So much so that I became a little bit fatigued reading Dead Bait 4. I went in having never read any of the previous volumes and to be honest, I was expecting (hoping) to get a collection of pulpy monster tales in which doomed expeditions to places such … Continue reading Book review: Dead Bait 4 – Anthology
The Blog and the Kindle (a love story?) By Eddie Generous, Founder/Editor of Unnerving I’d been quietly roaming around indie horror long before I created Unnerving. Watching people get in and fit in, seeing people succeed and fail (too often flailing angrily on social media, calling out others, claiming trash, claiming discrimination), and I’ve noticed one trait that immediately pops a budding … Continue reading Guest post: Eddie Generous on how to make friends and influence people.

Both of these bands play a style of black metal that is rich in texture and atmosphere. The blast beats and harsh vocals are … Continue reading Album review: The Weight of a Thousand Suns – Horizon Ablaze
We love a themed anthology here at beavisthebookhead.com and Imposter Syndrome has some brilliant, brilliant stories within its pages.

The book begins strongly with Gary McMahon‘s tale, I Know What They Look … Continue reading Book review: Imposter Syndrome – Anthology

I’ve never been disappointed with a book or a story written by Mark Matthews. Body of Christ is no different. Once again, Matthews has written a story that deals with human frailties and emotions. In this case, we follow the story of two young characters, both have lost someone dear to them and are struggling to deal with the emotional turmoil that comes with … Continue reading Book review: Body of Christ – Mark Matthews
Only Half There by Devin Townsend is a book that I feel reflects Devin Townsend’s personality and musical output. This is a fantastic book for fans of Devin’s music who really want to explore the creative process, the pressures of touring, band relationships, musical differences, label connections and the gear he uses to get that signature guitar tone. The book itself is quite scattershot, … Continue reading Book review: Only Half There – Devin Townsend
