Dreadful Tales Weekend Roundup

Wow! It was a crazy week here at Dreadful Tales. We had our first scene report, we saw reviews for some great indie authors as well as established genre vets and we hooked you up with a guide to Amazon’s 4 for 3 sale! Whew! In case you missed anythinng, we’ve gathered it all here in the Weekend Roundup.

Meli examined Bryan Smith’s end of the world tale, Darkened.  The book is extremely cheap so check out her amazing review and then pick up this fantastic novel.

This was a busy week for Colum as he brought us three reviews, including two on Monday alone! Colum shows his diverse taste as he examined the YA masterpiece Rotters by Daniel Kraus and followed it up with a glowing review for Melissa Ecker’s paranormal romance, Giving up the Ghost.  Colum also introduced us all to a young author who will likely become a mainstay in the genre as he took a look at Miranda Doerfler’s Modern Day Horrors.

Pat continued his obsession with all things bizarro when he raved about Andersen Prunty’s smart little bizarro novel, My Fake War.  He also examined The Traveling Vampire Show-the last Laymon book published while the author was still with us. Speaking of Laymon, Pat reviewed Charlie Morgan’s Night Owls which is a short story that was influenced by the master.

Pat also gave us his report of the always amazing Blobfest in Phoenixville, PA.

If you haven’t done so already, check out our guide to the big Amazon sale and pick up some great genre books on the cheap!

We have a big week planned for everyone so keep those peepers peeled as we roll along here at Dreadful Tales!

About Pat Dreadful

Father of three. Impregnator of one. Pat lives in the backwoods of Pennsylvania where he splits his time between moonshining and moonlighting. He used to be the sole proprietor of a funky little site called Grade Z Horror but jumped at the chance to work with Meli and Colum. He was raised on King and Crichton but quickly found true salvation in the works of Ketchum and Laymon. When not selling plasma to afford those highly sought after Jeff Strand limited editions, Pat can be found sitting on his back porch with a pipe full of Perique and the sounds of summer coming through a beat up transistor radio. Simply put, he is a true ramblin’ boy of pleasure. The books that have shaped Pat’s warped lil’ ol’ mind have included Dweller by Jeff Strand, It by Stephen King, Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon, The Traveling Vampire Show by Richard Laymon and The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum. Pat is always on the lookout for a good coming-of-age yarn so shoot your suggestions to PatDreadful@gmail.com You can also follow his unsavory exploits over at theblackwoodsbible.wordpress.com
