He’s a bestselling author of over 13 (lucky number!) books, all of them written with the express desire to quicken heartbeats and make spines tingle. Living with his wonderful family and two cats, he’s happy to be close enough to New York City to gobble down Gray’s Papaya hotdogs w ...more

Joe Lansdale is a hero of mine and I've been in awe with how seamlessly he's managed to meld them both. I figured it was time I got off my keister and got to work spinning my own yarn of cowboys and terror. (less)

My man man, pots and pans, Spencer Mitchell is back, this time with a review of a very cool flick called 13 Cameras. I haven’t seen it myself, but after reading his review, I’m going straight to Amazon this afternoon. There’s great horror out there. Sometimes, you just need to rely on someone’s recommendation to point you in the right direction! And this particular movie opens up a whole can of...

Joe Lansdale is arguably the best writer alive - in any genre. I've been a huge fan of his Hap & Leonard series for years, and this is possibly the best one yet.

A chilling tale of isolation, demonic possession and desperation. Once I got to the final 100 pages, I literally could not put it down. A wonderful debut novel. I can't wait to see what's next.

“It was one thing to talk about ghosts, quite another to have them messing around with things in the physical world.”
Hunter Shea, Island of the Forbidden

“The corner of her mouth curled and she said, "It'd be rude to turn down a chance to drink with a cowboy, now wouldn't it?”
Hunter Shea, Hell Hole

“Back in the 1800's, Ormsby Island was one of South Carolina's crown jewels. The island was owned by Maxwell Ormsby, a very wealthy man who liked to entertain everyone from heads of state to artists and authors and anyone who knew how to make money in business. An invitation to the island was a declaration that you were someone on the move. Once a year, Ormsby opened the island up to the public and hosted a huge fair. It was the social event of the year in these parts. My family still talks about the days when my great grandmother would take the family out to enjoy the festivities. It must have been some party.”
Hunter Shea, Island of the Forbidden

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
