The other would be a novel set in the same world with Lucas as the protagonist and Andy as a supporting character. Lucas has an interesting story to tell that I would like to explore.(less)

Movie Review: Jumanji The Next Level

The first Jumanji movie told the story in its entirety, and there was no real reason to make this movie other than the first movie was surprisingly successful and the studio behind it wanted to capitalize on that success. Given that caveat, this was basically a fun, popcorn movie that didn’t require much deep thought. It was much like the first movie, except this go around the returning charact...

I was glad to see Robert McCammon return to Matthew Corbett and his circa 17th century novels. I’m both a fan of historical fiction and McCammon, who is one of my all time favorite writers, making his mark in the horror genre. Making it even better, ...more

Fallen Masters was a bit of a mixed bag. There were some aspects I liked about it, and some that really didn’t work for me at all. The basic premise of the story is that the forces of evil are trying to destroy the universe, and a select group of ...more

I had previously watched the first season of the show Big Little Lies, which I had enjoyed, but didn’t think was great. Although it had some good points, it had a fair bit of flaws as well. I liked the novel a good bit more. It corrected some of the ...more

Zorro The Curse of Capistrano And Six Stories by Johnston McCulley
Rate this book

It seems that more often than not when I read a book from a century or two ago that it doesn’t translate well. Often, the dialogue is stilted, there’s an over reliance on universal viewpoint narration, the characters don’t come off as authentic, and ...more

“I have seen many atrocities, but they are outweighed by the kind deeds that may seem small, but when added together, create a strong human spirit. Perhaps you would benefit from living a simple life away from war and politics.”
Carl Alves, Two For Eternity

“Horror itself is a bit of a bullied genre, the antagonist being literary snobbery and public misconception. And I think good horror tackles our darkest fears, whatever they may be. It takes us into the minds of the victims, explores the threats, disseminates fear, studies how it changes us. It pulls back the curtain on the ugly underbelly of society, tears away the masks the monsters wear out in the world, shows us the potential truth of the human condition. Horror is truth, unflinching and honest. Not everybody wants to see that, but good horror ensures that it's there to be seen.”
Kealan Patrick Burke
