Double Barrel Horror: There Will Be Angels/Marlene the Magnificent by John Boden
Double Barrel Horror: There Will Be Angels... / Marlene the Magnificent - John Boden,Matthew Weber

 

DOUBLE BARREL HORROR continues on with this series of two short stories per volume. This time around they are both written by John Boden These super short stories being: THERE WILL BE ANGELS and MARLENE THE MAGNIFICENT. 

 

THERE WILL BE ANGELS is exactly the type of story I expect from Mr. Boden. A young boy is in distress and there are angels, but these are not the type of angels that will save him.

 

MARLENE THE MAGNIFICENT is NOT the type of story I expected from Mr. Boden. Not at all. Marlene actually IS magnificent and I wager that once you are introduced to her and her act, you will never forget it! A word of advice though? If she asks for your watch as part of her act, do NOT give it to her! 

 

I've been a fan of John Boden for a year or two now, and his work always surprises and pleases me. These two short stories continue that tradition and I give this small volume my highest recommendation!

My Free Friday Book! Hoodoo Harry by Joe Lansdale
Hoodoo Harry (Bibliomysteries) - Joe R. Lansdale

This is a short novella, so I should be able to finish it over the weekend! My Booklikes-opoly Bank account is as sad as my real one! This will be a nice way for me to make a deposit.

For the Water Works Space...
The Changeling - Victor LaValle

 

Read a book with water on the cover, or where someone turns on the waterworks (i.e., cries) because of an emotional event.

 

From the synopsis, I'm thinking this book should fit the space, (someone had better cry, dammit!!):

 

 

Apollo Kagwa has had strange dreams that have haunted him since childhood. An antiquarian book dealer with a business called Improbabilia, he is just beginning to settle into his new life as a committed and involved father, unlike his own father who abandoned him, when his wife Emma begins acting strange. Disconnected and uninterested in their new baby boy, Emma at first seems to be exhibiting all the signs of post-partum depression, but it quickly becomes clear that her troubles go far beyond that. Before Apollo can do anything to help, Emma commits a horrific act—beyond any parent’s comprehension—and vanishes, seemingly into thin air.

Thus begins Apollo’s odyssey through a world he only thought he understood to find a wife and child who are nothing like he’d imagined. His quest begins when he meets a mysterious stranger who claims to have information about Emma’s whereabouts. Apollo then begins a journey that takes him to a forgotten island in the East River of New York City, a graveyard full of secrets, a forest in Queens where immigrant legends still live, and finally back to a place he thought he had lost forever. This dizzying tale is ultimately a story about family and the unfathomable secrets of the people we love.
