THE FISHERMAN by John Langan
The Fisherman - John Langan

 

John Langan's THE FISHERMAN is a phenomenal story within a story.

 

Featuring cosmic horror, quiet horror, psychological horrors and a few scenes that were just horrific in general, I find myself lacking the words this book deserves.

 

This tale was outstanding and I waited way too long to read it. You should read it and the sooner the better.

 

My HIGHEST recommendation!

 

You can get a copy here: THE FISHERMAN

 

*I bought this book with my hard earned cash and the author was kind enough to sign it for me. Thank you, sir!*

Still amazing
Spawn Origins Collection Vol. 2 - Neil Gaiman,Todd McFarlane,Frank Miller,Alan Moore

I'm mostly through volume three and forgot to post a review of this.  

 

I have a migraine that I finally tamed, I'm stressed out again and I'm going to take a day for myself.   Binge watching Savage Dragon and binge reading Spawn.   The perfect day to be honest.  

 

 

Not a long review, but I still love the darkness, I love Angela and medieval Spawn.

Dark, gritty, and I just love this
Spawn: Origins Volume 1 (New Printing) - Todd McFarlane

The amnesia trope seems to be one I like, particularly in my comics and graphic novels.   So are broken characters, and ones who put down evil doers.   Not put in jail when they can't be reformed, but put down. 

 

Spawn has it all for me.   It was one of the series that ushered in a little more darkness into comics, and I know some people pine for the days when it was all nice and clean.   I do enjoy many of the lighter, cleaner comics that you can show the kids, but I also enjoy the darker universes. 

 

Spawn has been a long-time thing for me, although I dropped Spawn for a long while.  I'd like to use Comixology Unlimited and Hoopla to get through everything - all 13 volumes of Spawn origins and the more recent graphic novels - and maybe just start buying them on Comixology after I get through those.   Because rereading them?  I love it all over again. 

 

I own volumes 1-3 via Humble Bundle - and in paper - but I want to read them on Comixology and those volumes are amiable there, so the pages are from the Comixology version.

The Monster Amongst Us
Attack of the Fiend by Joseph Delaney Unabridged Playaway Audiobook (The Last Apprentice) - Joseph Delaney,Christopher Evan Welch

I finished writing this review and it got eaten by the computer gremlins. Oh well, here it goes again. I listened to this on audiobook while I was packing up the house this summer, and it greatly improved what was a tedious task. The narration is well done. This series is pretty darn spooky, no pun intended. It's downright scary at times. The narrator lends well to the atmosphere. There's a feeling of the monster lurking in the dark behind every closed door, a sense of paranoia and an urgency not to trust anyone. The storyline enhances that feeling because the monsters lurk in human form. More of the witches storyline in this one, and further development of the relationship between Tom and Alice. Definitely worth a read.

Bigfeet
Monster - Frank Peretti

Quick review before I head to bed!

 

Overall, I really enjoyed this. I checked it out on Libby because I wanted a good Bigfoot story and that’s exacrly what I got. The Bigfoot squad were fabulous and I enjoyed learning about their culture and ways. 

 

This one’s a bit of a slow burn but when it did get scary I absolutely got the creeps. It takes some patience but it’s well worth it in my view. The book has Christian overtones but it wasn’t done in a way that felt heavy handed too me. The book is a tad anti-evolution but again, not super heavy handed.

 

Final rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars
