Halloween Carnival Volume 4 Kealan Patrick Burke, Ray Garton, Bev Vincent, C. A. Suleiman, and Paul Melniczek
Halloween Carnival Volume 4 - Kealan Patrick Burke,Ray Garton,Bev Vincent,C.A. Suleiman,Brian James Freeman

Halloween Carnival Volume 4 is the 4th book in a 5 book series. Each book features 5 short stories written by a different author. These books are pretty short. Only takes a little of an hour to read the whole book. A new book will be released each week of October in 2017. The final book will be released on Halloween. 

 

The stories are scary or creepy. I think they were more creepy then scary. I really enjoyed this book. I liked seeing each of the authors style of writing.  I liked all of the stories but if I have to choose a favorite it would be THE HALLOWEEN TREE by Bev Vincent. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Garden of Fiends
Garden of Fiends: Tales of Addiction Horror - Johann Thorsson,Max Booth III,Glen Krisch,Jessica McHugh,Kealan Patrick Burke,Mark Matthews,Jack Ketchum

 * The reality of addiction is darker than any fiction. *

"Drinking and drugging provide the height of human experience.

It's the promise of heaven on earth,

but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness."

 Before I read even one story in this 'reality horror' anthology - Mark Matthews had me crying so hard that I could barely see. He presents an addiction anthology with compassion, casting no aspersions on anyone. I wan't to meet Mark Matthews, and give him the tightest hug ever.

 

"Imagine yourself drowning and being told not to swim to the surface for air. Obsessions should be so mild."

 

 

I'll have the full review posted soon - I was going over my notes for this review, and I'm bawling again.

Memory Lane
Memory Lane: A Short Story (The Cassandra Quinn Series Book 0) - Kealan Patrick Burke

A standalone prequel to a new series, this short read details the beginnings of a town affected by amnesia. Glenn is a resident of Kincaid, his life is slipping out of control a little as he is passed over for promotion and has had no luck getting a second job to maintain his family's financial security.
He begins to feel that something is off in Kincaid as he encounters acquaintances and neighbours who don't seem to know who he is. As he begins to experience headaches and sees shadows, he fears he too if affected by the strange happenings in the town.
This packs a lot into just over 20 pages, the character of Glenn is really well fleshed out for such a short read and as with most of KPB's work the prose is engaging and flows beautifully.
Although the end doesn't have any resolution it is quite chilling and a great way to end the story.
I'm not sure what's happening with the series, nothing appears to be out yet but this let's hope it comes out soon.

One Sentence Review – Where Darkness Dwells by Glen R Krisch #GlenRKrisch
Where Darkness Dwells - Glen Krisch,Kealan Patrick Burke
 
 

BOO_2

 

I have read so many books and don’t have time to do long reviews for all of them, but I do want to share my thoughts. So…here is my…

 

One Sentence Review

 

Where Darkness Dwells by Glen R Krisch

 

10671932

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY REVIEW

 

Coal mining and the great depression are horrors in their own right, but add to that an underground world where no one dies and they want you, (and if you are like me and a bit claustrophobic and afraid of being buried alive) Where Darkness Dwells by Glen R Krisch will have you cringing and shivering, maybe even keeping you up at night. LOL

 

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos 4 Stars

 

Goodreads Blurb:  During a hot summer night in 1934, tragedy strikes when two local boys search for the truth behind a local legend. They stumble upon the Underground, a network of uncharted caverns just below the surface of Coal Hollow. Time holds no sway in the Underground. People no longer age and their wounds heal as if by magic. By morning, one boy is murdered, while the other never returns home.

 

The Underground is hidden for a reason. Certain locals want to keep their lair secret, no matter the cost.

 

After learning a long-held family secret, Theodore Cooper is set adrift. Once well off and set in his ways, he is no longer sure of his role in society. He leaves his comfortable life in Chicago to tramp the countryside, searching for meaning in this new context. During his travels, he’s drawn to an abandoned house in Coal Hollow and impulsively buys it.

 

Cooper doesn’t know that a massacre had taken place in his new house. In 1851, a group of bounty hunters tracked a family of runaway slaves to the home. They wound up killing the homeowners as conspirators, then chased the runaways into a cellar tunnel leading to the Underground. The bounty hunters cornered the slaves and killed them. To everyone’s astonishment, the slaves then rose from the dead. Over time, the bounty hunters chose to stay below ground, taking advantage of their new slave labor to build what they term “Paradise.”

 

Their numbers are augmented by deathbed miners who are offered immorality in exchange for their subservience and labor.

 

Below a town struggling to survive both the Great Depression and the closing of the local coal mine, there lives an immortal society built on the backs of slavery and pervasive immorality.

Solid offering from a great author
Milestone: The Collected Stories - Kealan Patrick Burke

Welcome to Milestone; town of hell and damnation; town of no hope or salvation; town of evil and mystery;...."This town's reserved for the dreamless, the lost and the hopeless."

 

Kealan Patrick Burke's collected stories of Milestone are four short episodes in the life of a town that permeates evil and greatly affects those drawn to its magnetic personality. In The Witch Deputy Bryce Carrigan encounters Karen Thompson at the scene of an accident, a long time resident of St. Christian's Mental Home. Her prophetic words cast a spell on his existence and he realizes in life that "he wanted to be loved without ever having to love back because he wasn't able.

 

"Saturday Night at Eddies, a watering hole for lost souls a type of Dodge City, Deadwood, and Ricks's cafe in Casablanca. With all that sweat and testosterone under one roof the ending can be nothing but explosive.

 

"Thirty Miles South of Dry County" Warwick Tanner recounts a story concerning his good friends Dick and Sven heading for Milestone to confront the evil Mayor Kirkland...        "most people who went into Milestone didn't come back." This is a first class horror story of friendship and evil with a very apt conclusion, and some very descriptive and moving prose...."Couldn't keep my beloved wife from suffering while the cancer took its time with her, and I couldn't leave this godforsaken place because I were too old, too settled, and too afraid that if I drummed up the courage to try I'd find the road were gone because I'd waited too long.

 

In The Palaver an evil salesman comes calling spreading hope and false security to Oscar's failing barbershop business...."Whenever society loses its way, when evil eclipses good in the shadowy corners of this world, the razors come out to crop it back down. They have to, or what remains will be nothing worth saving."

 

A solid read and outstanding prose from a much respected author containing some deep thoughts and observations...."I was not always old, he thinks, and smiles sadly. I just woke up one day and there it was."
