Stuart Keane is a person who, at a very young age, fell in love with the written word.People ask me why I enjoy books. Sometimes I remain speechless. I know many people who have never read a book (they do exist) and trying to explain this simple, yet amazing pastime to them is never easy. It's pretty difficult in fact. I think comparing movies and books is needless because they are two completely different experiences. However, until you experience both, describing them never really does them justice.This comparison has probably gone on for decades. I read my first adult book at age seven. This was years after seeing my first film but the experience, where new, was something else entirely. I remember being stuck on one page (for those who are curious, the book was Flesh by Richard Laymon, an excellent yet under appreciated horror writer) for half an hour because the detail in the scene was so vivid. I actually remember him describing an abandoned restaurant and I didn't want to continue. It was THAT real to me that I felt I was actually there. Continuing to read would take me into the restaurant and because of previous events in the book, you knew it was a very bad idea.This was my first memory of the written word. It's remained with me since and probably always will. Many authors have that defining moment when they realised they wanted to write fiction for a living. This is mine and has shaped my life ever since.So who is Stuart Keane?Just an ordinary guy who likes to write thrilling, compelling stories. For thirty years, people have enthralled me, entertained me and provided me with many, many adventures. And inspiration. Now, I want to return the favour.

As well as reading "8 Church Field There's no place like home" I am also perusing" Bazaar of Bad Dreams" by Stephen King. There could be no greater comparison than these two stories and indeed t...

I always hesitate when giving a rating for books with this kind of subject matter. I always feel that if I give it a high rating, I am somehow condoning or praising the contents. It's really weird, but that's how it is. This one was brutal. I have read many accounts of child abuse books before, some...

Another great collection from Dark Chapter Press. I tend to be over critical when it comes to short stories, I'm really fussy, but this is a decent collection and has something for every horror fan. There are quite a few 4 and 5 stars reads in this collection in my opinion but my favourite has to ...

This is more of a pure horror, rather than thriller, so I think it would appeal mostly to horror fans who don’t mind plenty of gore.Cine got me thinking about how strange the human mind is. Why do some of us thrive on horror films/books, yet if we witness real life acts of violence we are shocked an...

Review copy provided by Terry M. West in return for an honest review.I used to spend many a sleepless night on Reddit reading the horror case files and found footage horror stories. Journals of Horror is much the same but in book format, so I was looking forwards to this one. There are so many stori...
