Book Review: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

We are nearing Halloween and for the final book I read this month, I thought it would be nice to finish with a classic horror. It doesn’t hurt that the title of the novel is a quote from Shakespeare (it’s from Act IV of Macbeth), who is possibly my favorite author of all time. Anyway, … Continue reading Book Review: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury

There is one main reason I avoided this drama like wildfire and one reason I finally decided to … Continue reading TV Series Review: Riverdale

Book Review: Nights of the Living Dead: An Anthology

I came across this book at the library and was interested for two reasons. First, I went through a phase of obsessing about zombies (mostly in video games and movies, but also the occasional book). Second, this is a collection of short stories picked by Jonathan Maberry and George A. Romero, the filmmaker for Night … Continue reading Book Review: Nights of the Living Dead: An Anthology
