War on Christmas
War on Christmas - Edward Lorn

by Edward Lorn

 

This collection includes all three Christmas stories by Edward Lorn.

 

The Naughty List

In which we learn that Santa's elves have their evil counterparts at the North Pole, called Naughties.

 

Deck the Halls

In which we work out that these three stories are a continuing story and several Christmas myths are woven together to create an original alternative world where Santa, or Sinter Klaus, deals with Krampus, the Naughties, and a host of toys gone bad in Toyland. This one ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, but in the combined volume, the story continues!

 

Beyond the Gates of Toyland

Completes the series. I found believability stretched a little in this one but the mythology added to the mix was certainly an original idea.

 

The writing in these was good and the stories drew me in despite my trepidation of reading an author who is known for extreme Horror. While the content was undoubedly Horror, there was nothing in this to squick my boundaries so it was a good first Lorn read for me.

 

As alternative Christmas stories go, I would actually recommend this for fans of Horror fiction. Don't expect a nicey-nice Holiday story though, that's not the goal here.

Margins
Margins - E. Lorn,Edward Lorn

by Edward Lorn

 

The author says in the intro that this is not a Horror story. I disagree. It's not a blood and gore Horror story, for which I'm grateful, but I would classify it under Supernatural Horror. And that's the kind of Horror I like!

 

A woman acquires an interesting book and the book engages her in conversation. Her first reaction is fear, but how she reacts is actually rather comical. I thought the naming of other recent books in the beginning was distracting and actually would have preferred imaginary titles, but never mind. I soon found myself drawn into the main plot of the story and might have read it all in one sitting if I hadn't been called away from my reading to make dinner.

 

I enjoyed the story, but felt that it could have been taken further. There was material there that actually could have made a good Romance story, albeit an unusual one. The ending came just a little too suddenly for me and left me with a feeling of wanting to know what would come next. Really hedging on the star rating, but let's call it 3.75.

Five Slices of Halloween Horror – Bad Apples #BadApples
Bad Apples: Five Slices of Halloween Horror - Evans Light,Gregor Xane,Edward Lorn,Jason Parent,Adam Light

Bad Apples is Five Slices of Halloween Horror.

 

I received and read this book in October of 2014, but…

 

Bad Apples: Five Slices of Halloween Horror

MY REVIEW

 

These unique, gruesome and devilishly delicious stories will have you looking over your shoulder, jumping at every noise and shadow.

 

Be careful of wandering dark streets at night.

 

The authors twisted imaginations take horror to the highest levels with  surprise endings and plenty of twists and turns along the way.

 

Four stars all the way!

 

The Riggle Twins by Gregor Xane

 

Pretty gross and devilishly delicious with tricks and treats for the Halloween hater. Do you have a dark house on Halloween, no candy for the treaters? Beware…egging and tping are not the only tricks these children have in store for you. 4 Stars

 

Pumpkinhead Ted by Evans Light

 

What they did to Ted is so awful…I can’t tell you. You’ll have to read it for yourself. BUT, he is back, one year later, for payback. OMG. I never saw that coming. Evans Light takes me to a place that smacks me around and makes me scream UNCLE! 4 Stars

Ghost Light Road by Adam Light

 

Of course, someone saw the light. Of course, what happens next, had to happen. I actually laughed. Dumbasses! Here comes the badness. You think vampires and werewolves are scary, you haven’t met Uncle Jesse’s children…and you really don’t want to. 4 Stars

 

Easy Pickings by Jason Parent

 

Beware. What goes around, comes around. Like a cat playing with its prey, I know something is coming…Now…No, now….Uh Oh. 4 Stars

 

The Scare Rows by Edward Lorn

 

Children of the Corn and Supernatural on steroids. I didn’t see this story developing the way it did, but I should not have been surprised, with Edward’s twisted imagination. Horror, perverted sex and evil do go together well. I wondered how he would end The Scare Rows and I couldn’t help but laugh when I got there. Corn Whisky…HA HA HA HA HA! Excellent. 5 Stars

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Bad Apples.

Animated Animals. Pictures, Images and Photos  4 Stars

THE BEDDING OF BOYS Review
The Bedding of Boys - Edward Lorn

Read for "Serial Killer Spree:" The Bedding of Boys is the upcoming novel by Edward Lorn. I should say couple'a things before we get started, cool? I was a beta reader of this novel, meaning the copy I read and am reviewing now is not the final version. Because of that, I will keep this review purposefully vague as to not chance referencing something that doesn't end up in the final, published edition of this story. E. tells me The Bedding of Boys will likely see two revisions before publication. Said publication will be a limited hardcover that will come along in spring 2018. The ebook/paperback releases will be, at the very soonest, early 2019 — if at all. 

I'd like to say one more thing, may it do ya fine. Edward is a good friend of mine; his friendship means a lot to me. However, that did not color my opinion of the story in any way. I feel I can be honest with him, and I'm thankful for that. This review is totally my unobstructed and honest opinion. 

Alright. Holy moly, this book. Regina, this novel's antagonist, is a woman in her mid-thirties with an insatiable lust for young men. And she's a serial killer; she often kills her victims in gory, brutal ways. As far as villains of this sort go, I think she's interesting and I love the fact that she is a woman: female rapists aren't explored in fiction enough, in my opinion. Her stalking of victims and unabashed sexuality made for intense reading, often leaving me breathless. 

The story's heart is Nevada, fourteen-year-old gamer geek and Regina's latest focus. They soon develop a relationship of sorts, and it is this strange and thrilling and unashamedly erotic development that serves as the crux of this novel. Where does it go? How does it end? Read and find out! 

Edward tells me this novel is his exploration of male sexuality, and I would say it's a successful one. Lorn is not afraid to write brutal honesty: he captures the teenage boys in their truest essence, reader's offenses be damned. The friendship of Nevada and Tommy was my favorite part to read, though I did enjoy Regina and the intriguing "ghost," too. 

I do have a few complaints, though they are rather minuscule and, again, these problems could certainly be ironed out before this novel's publication. I wish the budding, strange romance between Nevada and Regina would have been expanded some; it all feels a bit rushed. I'm not saying I personally enjoyed the relationship — rape is as unpleasant to me as it is anyone else — but it was highly intriguing. I just wanted more, that's all. Really, that could go for novel as a whole: I wish it were longer. 

A sickening and horrific and erotic thrill ride, I'm glad to have started my Halloween Bingo off with The Bedding of Boys. And thank you, E, for letting me be a beta reader!
