Into The Fire - Netherworld

Into The Fire

Into The Fire

Paris, France. It was the beautiful city of love. A place that people call enchanting. It was the gorgeous city that people all around the world travel to for honeymoons and vacations. But everything about the place offered nothing for me. The world I knew only shattered around me. Like a cracked mirror it was distorted and now when I step in front of one, I held no reflection. With the teeth and claws of this world leaving so many wounds, I could…

Netherworld - Miller's Diary

Miller’s Diary
Dear Diary,
Today I have dropped the case. I won’t look into it any further. I thought it might have been a murder but it’s the strangest damn thing I have ever seen.
I come to the crime scene. The police are very hush more so than usual. The windows were broken. The glass crunched under my feet. Dead crows laid across the floor. They were impaled. As I looked down I saw that they…

Night On The River - Palms Inn

Night On The River

Night on the River
The water was dark. Everything was. The dark ripples from the boat flowing through the water were hardly noticeable. There was no moon that night. The businesses were closed. The only lights form the shore were street lights that turned from green to yellow to red for the traffic that wasn’t there. Even in a city as big as
Miami, there was not a soul awake at two in the morning.…

Palm's Inn - Beyond The Window

Beyond The Window

I stayed there near the glass. I sat on the window seat. It was a simple cushioned shelf just beneath the frame of the window. I t was always my favorite seat. But it seemed to not matter all that much any more.  It was simple place, and became my place to sit for the years passed.
But it was silent inside the apartment. With the storm raging outside, the lights were out. The TV was off.…

Pickman’s Model: An Odd Creepy Puzzle That May Entertain Or Disappoint

Pickman’s Model by HP Lovecraft

Overall Rating: An Odd Creepy Puzzle That May Entertain Or Disappoint.

Okay this is a short story by HP Lovecraft. Well overall I don’t think HP Lovecraft wrote anything but short stories. But all the same, this is a tale called Pickman’s Model. And if you have not heard of this author, then I dare you to look up some films that are based off of or influenced by Lovecraftean horror such as Re-animator, Dagon, From Beyond…

Carriers: A Journey Into The Rainforest For the Obvious Source

Carriers: A Journey Into The Rainforest For the Obvious Source.

Carriers by Patrick Lynch

Okay not much of intro for this one. All I can say is it was a church book giveaway and I grabbed whatever looked mildly interesting. And one of those books I did grab is called Carriers by Patrick Lynch. It was a simple white cover with bright bold red title. Then there was an inside cover revealing three faceless military people in gas masks and bio hazard…

Man’s Search For Meaning: An Intriguing Look Into The Mind Of A Holocaust Survivor

Man’s Search For Meaning By Viktor E Frankl

Overall Rating: An Intriguing Look Into The Mind Of A Holocaust Survivor

This is another odd smoothie review. This one is a called Man’s Search For Meaning By Viktor E Frankl. It was a required reading for a college class. So since I read it, why not write a review.

First off, Man’s Search For Morning is not a text book. It’s not a memoir. It’s no a self help book. But it’s very much a combination of all three of these. It…

Find Of The Century - Netherworld

The Find Of The Century

It was hot. The temperature hung in the high eighties. But it seemed much hitter than that, to the workers. They had been working without much rest that week in the dry plains of South Africa. They were digging. They were digging up some sort of ruin that was lost long ago.
Archeologists Ivan Von Coy was the one who discovered that the top of it was in fact, the tip a building rather than a…

A Scarcity Of Sea Monsters: Sweet Gentle Tale From The Deep

A Scarcity Of Lake Monsters by Laurel K Hamilton

Overall Rating : Sweet gentle Tale From Deep Water

Okay after reading two really bad books in a row, I’m not sure whether I can gamble on another five hundred novel just yet. I need a breather after that god awful Clive Cussler torture contraption called Atlantis Found. So I’m taking a break and am heading back to world of short stories. And I’m going to one of favorite authors Laurel K Hamilton. This one is called “A Scarcity Of…

The Edge Of The Sea: A Place Where the Mermen Are Psychotic

The Edge of the Sea by Laurell K. Hamilton

Laurell K. Hamilton is a good writer and I’m convinced of that. Even now she is good. She’s just in a rut of writing stuff that’s X- rated, rather than actually writing a story. Edge of The Sea is a short story she recently wrote that hits much closer to home for any one who read her earlier stuff. It can be found in the Strange Candy Collection.

The story starts with Adria, who find that her room mate Rachel is missing in middle of…

Autopsy Room Four:Inspired By Frightening Truth But Delivered A Boring Narrative

Autopsy Room Four By Stephen King

Overall Rating: Inspired by frightening truth but delivered a boring narrative

Okay there is is not much to of a introduction here other than Autopsy is the first short story in Stephen King’s Everything’s Eventual.

The story starts with only sounds and descriptions from inside if a body bag being rolled through a hospital. He can not move or speak. And only pieces together what is happening through the sounds he hears. And the detailed…

Lust Of Cupids: I Love It. It’s Just So Darn Cute

A Lust Of Cupids By Laurell K. Hamilton

Okay here’s another odd one. This is a short story written by Laurell K. Hamilton . And this has nothing to do with Anita Blake or Meredith Gentry. This entirely is it’s own thing. It’s called “ A Lust Of Cupids’ and it can be found in the Strange Candy short story collection.

So what is it about? Well its about a thirty year old woman named Rachel Ceridian , who is not married and never planned to get married and…

Midnight Meat Train: Delivers More Than What The Title Might Suggest

The Midnight Meat Train by Clive Barker

Not big fan of horror. And if you read my smoothie reviews, you’re probably sick of hearing say that. But I always like to try new things. After all, I wasn’t a big fan of spy novels until I read of Ludlum’s work that made me rethink my opinion about the genre all together. And when they were cleaning out the library at my college, they were selling old books for a quarter a piece. And I found this thick book called…

Those Who Seek Forgiveness: A Reminder To All Of Us Of How Much We Miss Anita

Those Who Seek Forgiveness by Laurell K. Hamilton

Okay, this is another smoothie review based in an individual story. Why not a whole book? Well tell me how to review a collection of short stores with it having a meaning behind it, and I’ll start. Every story in my opinion whether it’s a novel, novella, or short story if it’s a piece of work and should be seen as such. This one comes from Laurell K. Hamilton short story collection called, Strange Candy. And…
