Book Review – Inheriting Her Ghosts by S.H. Cooper

I buddy read this one with a few pals on the LOHF team, and I can already tell it’s going to be a favorite amongst fans of both the horror genre in general, and more specifically, gothic horror.

In addition to her financial woes, Helena also struggles with ghostsContinue reading “Book Review – Helena by Claire L. Smith”

Book Review – The Strange Tale of Miss Victoria Frank by Kelly Evans

From movies to even other fiction, IContinue reading “Book Review – The Strange Tale of Miss Victoria Frank by Kelly Evans”

Book Review – The Hereafter Bytes by Vincent Scott

“Normality is subjective.” Anyone who has been following my blog for awhile knows that while I lean heavily into the horror genre, there are sprinklings here and there of others that I love as well, with science fiction being a huge one that I grew up enjoying. Give me a well-told story set in theContinue reading “Book Review – The Hereafter Bytes by Vincent Scott”
