The Damned Highway (2011)
language
English
3.65 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: This is an odd story of Hunter S. Thompson facing the forces of Lovecraft's mythos during the 1972 presidential campaign. He really doesn't like Nixon, but doesn't seem to be much in favor of anyone else, either. It's a well-told humorous story, certainly very different than anyt...

review 1: I shouldn't have read this one. No, really, I shouldn't have. I shouldn't have read it because even though it's broad daylight, I'm home alone, and I'm thoroughly creeped out. Just like the cowardly lion in the Wizard of Oz, I DO believe in ghosts - I even write about them for...

review 1: Nine well-known horror writers got together and collaborated on this round-robin style novel with all of the profits going to benefit Tom Piccirilli, who's battling cancer. It's a wonderful undertaking and a noble cause and I really wanted to like the book a lot, but I just could...

review 1: Crazy anthology. The title story, Jack's Magic Beans, was original and fast paced, but I felt like it was a rip off because just as the story started getting good, it ended, with nothing resolved and the survivors just going off into the crazy new world and you don't know what wi...

review 1: This is some badass shit right here. l am a huge fan of Keene's and have read a ton of his stuff. So far, he's one of the two writers that can actually scare me. l don't know who these Thirteen are, if there is any basis for them in the real world or if Keene made them up or what...

review 1: always a great time when Brian Keene is behind the journey. I love Levi and it was great to follow his adventures again and cant wait to see him in action again. I loved the deeper connections than normal(or so it sseemed) to the rest of the Keene universe. The dark people no dou...
Urban Gothic (2009)
language
English
3.7 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Totally gross and not for the faint of heart. On the other hand if you like a nasty horror novel with lots of blood and gore, this is the stuff you're looking for. There are at least three characters getting their head crushed or burst open and the description of each of these se...

review 1: I'm not normally a fan of the horror genre but I'm kinda liking this "new horror" stuff. This book reminded me of The Ruins in its overall tone. I went in to the reading a bit cautious; wondering if the storyline was just going to be another hokey rip-off of books like Hunger Gam...

review 1: This is a great, short collection of short stories by Brian Keene! A lot of fun packed in to a few pages here! The title novella was by far my favorite, a story of how something has snapped inside of people and they simply start killing anybody and everybody. A select few are ...

review 1: I have read a handful of Keene's novels now, and I really like his style. In some cases, he has extreme gore and violence, and others, a ton of suspense. Either way, he weaves a story like a finely woven quilt. This was a great book. IT's a quick read (took me about 5 days), ...
Die Verschollenen (2011)
language
English

review 1: After reading - and enjoying - this book, it was the Author's afterward that really got me thinking. He cited it as originally spawned as a short-story intended as a prequel of Richard Laymon's "Beast House" mythos. Interesting. Things were changed in the manuscript, but the work...

review 1: I’ve read a few of Brian Keene’s books, enough that I can start picking favorites. One of those favorites of mine is his zombie novel Dead Sea. I thought it was a great read and he brought some unique ideas he brought to the zombie genre. And it was bleak, very bleak. Not too l...
