Anybody who has been following my reviews for a while likely knows that I have a particular fondness for arctic-based horror. Drop a group of folks in the middle of a freezing and inhospitable terrain where they are blinded by snow, frostbitten, and mentally at their wits end and at each other’s throats, and let the blood spill. I love shit like that, and Renee Miller clearly does, as well.

Stranded has all of the above, plus a mysterious monster rooted in indigenous folklore. While the creature is of t

What happens when a group of largely unlikeable contestants sign up for a Big Brother-like gameshow in which they are sent to an inhospitable island and are stalked by an ancient evil? Carnage! that's what. Renee Miller's Stranded is a quick read filled with ripped flesh and missing eyes. I'm on a bit of a cold horror trip at the moment and this is a lot of gory fun. Little time is wasted in setting the scene and Miller succeeds in making you feel the cold as it rattles your bones and chaps the ...more

‘Stranded’ is a short horror novel about the filming of a reality TV show where six ordinary people have to survive in an icy wilderness. This being the horror genre, they don’t just have the elements to contend with, there are also some supernatural monsters. It’s a fun premise, and the book kept me entertained on a long cross country train journey. The problem is that if you spend 5 minutes thinking about what a book with that premise

The Jack Londonesque White Fang style cover does not do justice to this chilling (in more ways than one) novella, as the creature which inhabits these pages is significantly nastier than the skinny looking wolf gracing the front. There is certainly a survivalist element to Stranded and if the legendary adventurer London was indeed Renee Miller’s original inspiration, then she brings 21st century game elements to this page-turning tale of a reality show which goes horribly wrong.

The cover implies this novella has wolves, it does not, something bigger probably ate them! Instead it has a really cool beast inspired from indigenous folklore, which is a vicious crossbreed between a wendigo and the snow-beast in Dan Simmon’s The Terror. The creature does not mess around and appears not long after the intruders arrive and quickly terrorises the contestants and crew monitoring them. At a brief 126 pages, it hits the ground running, it’s lean and very mean, with a quickly mounti ...more

I'd like to say I hate talking about myself, but that would be a lie. I don't mind in the least. Will it be interesting? Meh, probably not.

Let's see, I write suspense, comedy, paranormal, horror and erotic horror fiction. Basically all the dark fiction.
