Neon and spotlights and bulbs have pushed back the darkness, but night is still largely an undiscovered territory.” Out of Body (2020) by Jeffrey Ford is a surrealist exploration […]

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving

From the listless repose of the place, and the peculiar character of its inhabitants, who are descendants from the original Dutch settlers, this sequestered glen has long been known by the name of Sleepy Hollow… Halloween is my favorite holiday, probably due to the many fond memories of my mom putting up decorations and trick-or-treating […]

When I first said I wanted to review this book, I mentioned the prologue as what drew me in. That wasn’t entirely true. While I did enjoy the prologue (and I’ll mention the chills it gave me later on), it was the title that really caught my eye. How could it not? There’s something enticing […]

40 Years of The Perfect Organism: Does Alien Hold Up?

40 Years of The Perfect Organism: Does Alien Hold Up?

It was part war movie, part science fiction film: futuristic in a tough, edgy way. After watching it on a battered VHS videocassette and thinking it was excellent, I settled down to […]
