The nitty-gritty: A bunch of stories that will make you very uncomfortable. And that’s a good thing! God watches as you bring another into the room. He does not take his eyes off you. Sits in his LifeChair exactly where you parked him two days before. White beard and tubes. His cartridge core throbs, like […]

But thanks to my really terrific blog hosting site (that’s sarcasm, by the way!), my blog actually time traveled back two weeks and I lost a bunch of posts. Including this one, which I now present to you for the second time! The nitty-gritty: […]

The nitty-gritty: An instant classic, Railhead deserves a spot up there with some of the best young adult fantasy/science fiction ever written. The train was gone, but he could still see her, striding along beside him in the sodium glow from the trackside lamps. The smell of space clung to her, rich and smoky. What […]

The nitty-gritty: A delightful blend of fantasy, the modern-day film industry, and quirky characters that will make you smile. It was midmorning on a Monday when magic walked into my life wearing a beige Ann Taylor suit and sensible flats. I’ve been salivating over this amazing cover for months now, and I was so excited […]

PAPER TIGERS by Damien Angelica Walters – Review

PAPER TIGERS by Damien Angelica Walters – Review
Posted February 29, 2016 by Tammy in Reviews / 11 Comments

The nitty-gritty: An atmospheric and eerie ghost story with psychological undertones that make this a satisfying horror story on several levels. The house held only broken dreams, shattered screams, and secret little dirty things. It was a liar’s playground, a dead man’s last stand. I was pleasantly surprised by Damian Angelica Walters’ short story collection […]
