First I would like to thank Pete Kahle, owner/publisher of Bloodshot Books and an author in his own right for gifting me a digital copy of this book.

Let me start by saying that I cannot believe that “The Boulevard Monster” by Jeremy Hepler is his first novel. I actually had to go back and double check his bio to make sure. He has authored some short stories but this is indeed his debut. This is one of those rare gems that does not box itself into just one genre, but blends multiple genres into the piece. There are elements of the occult, crime, suspense, psychological thriller and just damn good wordsmanship. I could have easily read this book in one sitting, but I made a conscious decision…

It’s That Time of Year!


As 2017 comes to an end, the various entertainment industries are in the throes of award season.  We’ve already had the Emmys, and now, in the first couple of months of 2018, a cavalcade of awards shows will be broadcast.  In January alone, we’ll see the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Awards, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Grammys …none of which remotely interest me.

I’m more interested in awards recognizing the great books that have come out in the previous year. Examples include the Aurealis Award, the Edgars, the Hugos, the Nebulas, the Locus, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the Philip K. Dick Award, the Newbery Medal, the Shirley Jackson Awards…. just to name a few. There are many more, but my favorite is undeniably the Bram Stoker Awards for obvious reasons.

Now is the time of year when authors, editors and publishers scramble to make the public aware…

Tim Meyer’s Top 10 Novels of 2017


I didn’t realize what a fantastic year this was for horror fiction until I sat down to write this list. So many good books, a lot of which—unfortunately—I couldn’t find room for. I didn’t get to read everything I wanted to this year (does anyone ever?), and I’m sure I missed some great books that deserve a spot. If you want a complete list of the books I read this year, visit my Goodreads page. Also, I feel the need to mention that this list represents my personal favorites from 2017 and I only included books I actually read or listened to. Feel free to add your own favorites in the comments section below!

Let’s get started!

Check out Greg Chapman’s Post: Seven Years Later

They say seven is THE magic number. So it’s fortuitous then that the sequel to one of my first published works, The Noctuary, has been released exactly seven years to the day since the original first appeared on the scene. The Noctuary: Pandemonium was hell to write. The original novella, first published by the now-defunct […]
