Dystopia by Aphotic Realm

It's landed, the fourth instalment of Aphotic Realm and this may just be their best issue yet!  There's a stellar line up included in here of awesome writers and for the first time there's now comics included, more interviews, including one with the legendary Kevin J.Anderson and even book reviews! The theme for this mighty issue is Dystopia! In here you'll find tales of of broken worlds, dismantled societies and lost hope. Few remain and they will fight by any means for survival. It seems Aphotic Realm keep outdoing themselves with each issue. I for one cannot wait for the next issue: Eldritch! The Red Umbrella by Brian Black Dystopia gets off to a cracking start with The Red Umbrella by Brian Black. A really gripping tale set in a post apocalyptic world where nothing is what it seems. Interrogation by Anoop Anthony A great tale warning of the endless cycle of carnage and bloodshed. Can humanity work together in a crisis or will t

For Exposure: The Life and Times of a Small Press Publisher by Jason Sizemore

This is the hilarious account of how Jason Sizemore had a mid life crisis and decided to launch his own publishing company, Apex, which needs no introduction. Reading this book has given me so much respect and admiration for small independent publishers. The struggles of a writer are very well documented but for the first time you get to see the trials and tribulations of an editor. Jason Sizemore recounts his journey of becoming on of the top indie publishers with pure charm and sincerity. I was really rooting for him and long live Apex. It's a very honest account of his struggles and shortcomings with brilliant anecdotes of book con shenanigans. I've never been to a convention but after reading this I'm dying to try them out! Bring on StokerCon 2020!

The Siren and The Specter by Jonathan Janz

Hands down this has got to be the best book I've read this year, and I've read some very good books! If I'm honest when I first started to read this book I thought it would be your standard haunted house story but this book is so much more than that. It starts off slow, but creepy, there's an ominous undercurrent and not unlike the epic TV series of 24 it kicks off and takes you on an adrenaline packed adventure. It became one of those book where I had to keep reading, even if it meant staying up all night. I was genuinely scared reading this book which isn't something that happens often. When David Caine, a celebrated skeptic of the supernatural, is invited by an old friend to spend a month in “the most haunted house in Virginia,” he believes the case will be like any other. But the Alexander House is different. Built by a 1700s land baron to contain the madness and depravity of his eldest son, the house is plagued by shadows of the past and the lingering ta
