Optical Delusion - Hunter Shea
Optical Delusion - Hunter Shea

Hunter Shea has tapped into our childhood for his latest offering of fear. Remember those ads in the backs of comic books? Muscles like Charles Atlas. Sea monkeys. Joy buzzers. Fake ice cubes with a fly in the middle. Gum that turns your mouth black. Oh, and the ever popular, X-ray glasses. I certainly remember them. More specifically, I remember wanting them and my mom saying "absolutely not". Well, what would happen if she did allow me to get those x-ray glasses and after 10 minutes of making my eyes hurt, I tossed them aside only to have my dad pick them up and put them on. And, what if, in between the fuzzy-eyed headache it produced, he saw a glimpse of a girl's panties she had on underneath her clothing? And what if, in desperate attempts to get more than a glimpse or two of what the females looked like under their winter clothing, it caused something else? Something more hideous, more macabre, and it wouldn't let you turn away?

 

Optical Delusion was a fun ride into every boy that grew up in the 1970s and 80s past and warped it with a Twilight Zone twist and an EC Comic turn. My last couple of reads from Shea have been my favorites. He's honed his chops the last few years and is churning out nothing but quality lately. So much so, that he's quickly become one of my go to writers that can't miss.

The Twilight Zone: Shadow And Substance
Twilight Zone: Shadow & Substance - Mark Rahner,Tom Peyer,John Layman

I haven't seen Twilight Zone, so that might be one of the reasons why I believed this comic to be so confusing, and frankly not very good.

I didn't like the story, and most of it was so weird, that about halfway through, I just lost interest. It was really not for me, but perhaps there are others who will get what I assume are references or inside jokes and will appreciate it a lot more than I did.

It just wasn't for me.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas-Volume 29
The Twilight Zone Radio Dramas, Volume 29 - Stacy Various Performers Keach,Various

This was an excellent collection of Twilight Zone radio plays.

 

Stacey Keach was the main narrator, (the Rod Serling, so to speak), then each radio play had its own celebrity narrators.

 

This collection featured 3 stories, I believe, that were written by Dennis Etchison, one of my favorite short story authors. With great writing like that, this collection already had a lot going for it. Add to that some superb celebrity narrators like Malcolm McDowell and you've got a home run!

 

This collection of radio dramas was a lot of fun and I highly recommend them!

These TZ radio dramas are super cool!

 

 

All of them have sound effects and some have celebrity actors. I was browsing through the audio books at my local library and they had a ton of these! (I did find a few single ones at Amazon for only .95, but they only contained one story while these volumes have multiple stories.)This volume, (29), has 6 episodes. What fun!

Last Stop, The Twilight Zone: The Biography of Rod Serling
Last Stop, The Twilight Zone: The Biography of Rod Serling - Joel Engel If you grew up watching the Twilight Zone on tv your world was changed, like it or not. Joel Engel introduces the man who made this change possible. The book is revealing and engaging but some places in this book made me go, "No way."

Some items of Rod Serling's life story were either exaggerated or seemed muted where the author appeared to have run out of information. The balance was not always there.

From Joel Engel's point of view, Rod Serling's life was almost as twisted as an episode of a Twilight Zone episode. True or not, the fact remains that Rod Serling was a genius who contributed to what television is today.

Reviewer Disclosure - I received a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
