Book review: If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse – Wrath James White

  I guess I should’ve known what to expect with this latest collection from Wrath James White having read many of his works in the past. And yet still, I found myself aroused, sickened and at times shocked with the book’s content…in the best possible way, of course ; ) Great cover art, great title, If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse is not … Continue reading Book review: If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse – Wrath James White

Magazine review: Unnerving Magazine #5

    Unnerving issue #5 gets off to an immense start with Glug Glug by Aaron J. Householder and the sinister Red Room by Christa Carmen. Whilst only short, Householder’s tale is a fun, throwback style horror story that put a huge smile on my face and one that I felt was a little reminiscent of Stephen King. Christa Carmen’s Red Room is a different beast … Continue reading Magazine review: Unnerving Magazine #5

Album review: Antagonism of the Soul – Insolvency

    Just when you thought the metalcore train had left the station, along comes Insolvency to help you remember why you fell in love with this often maligned sub-genre in the first place. Whilst this French outfit doesn’t exactly bring anything new to the table, Antagonism of the Soul captures the fury of As I Lay Dying at their best and has the melodic sensibilities … Continue reading Album review: Antagonism of the Soul – Insolvency

Genocidal Majesty – Gnaw Their Tongues

  As the name perhaps suggests, Genocidal Majesty is a punishing and brutally chaotic release from Gnaw Their Tongues and it is an album I am never likely to forget. Opening with the apocalyptic-sounding Death Leaves the World, we are awakened by a series of tortured shrieks and industrial synths. This is the soundtrack to the end of days right here. The production is bloody raw and … Continue reading Genocidal Majesty – Gnaw Their Tongues

Book review: Hidden City – Alan Baxter

  I’m a huge fan of Alan Baxter’s work. His short story collection, Crow Shine, blew me away, as did his recent novella, The Book Club. Alan’s latest book, Hidden City, is quite different and it shows what a talented writer he is. Hidden City blends urban fantasy, noir and horror. If you can imagine James Herbert’s The Fog mixed with Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, … Continue reading Book review: Hidden City – Alan Baxter

Book review: Every Time We Meet at the Dairy Queen Your Whole Fucking Face Explodes – Carlton Mellick III

    Reading Carlton Mellick III always makes me feel like I have fallen down a rabbit hole, just like Alice did. One of the most original and entertaining voices out there, Mellick’s prose style is far from lush and poetic, but he has a captivating voice and despite his stories’ obvious weirdness I cannot help but love his books. Every book I have ever … Continue reading Book review: Every Time We Meet at the Dairy Queen Your Whole Fucking Face Explodes – Carlton Mellick III

Book review: Shadows Over Main Street vol 2 – Anthology

  It will need to be a pretty spectacular anthology to top what is on offer inside Shadows Over Main Street vol 2. Doug Murano and D. Alexander Ward have assembled some brilliant writers who have delivered wonderful stories in this second volume of small-town, Lovecraftian style horror. The tales contained within this anthology aren’t the type that goes straight for the throat, these stories simmer with unease and … Continue reading Book review: Shadows Over Main Street vol 2 – Anthology

Book review: Dead Bait 4 – Anthology

  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

Guest post: Eddie Generous on how to make friends and influence people.

      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.

Book review: Body of Christ – Mark Matthews

  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
