Dreadful Tales Weekend Roundup

Time for another installment of the Dreadful Tales Weekend Roundup – your chance to catch up on anything you have missed from the last week.  We reviewed some great books, introduced a new feature and sprinkled in some news so check it out after the jump!

Colum took a look at the newest installment of the Jake Helman Files, Cosmic Forces. Colum says, “This book really has everything I, as a reader, could ever want in a horror/crime crossover story.” Sounds like a winner to me!

Meli introduced her new feature, Bit by Bloody Bloody, on Friday.  In this feature, Meli will take an in-depth look at some of the genre’s lengthier works on a chapter by chapter basis.  She kicks it off with a fantastic examination of the first chapter in Stephen King’s IT.

Shelagh continued to give all of you mummies and daddies some great reading for your little ghouls when she discussed Scary Story for Kids.  This is a must read for all of the parents out there!

We had our first joint review as Pat and Colum took at look at Ronald Malfi’s spine chilling novel, Snow. Pat and Colum also gave individual contributions as Pat examined the bizarro masterpiece, Shatnerquake and Colum was thoroughly impressed with Cate Gardner’s Nowhere Hall.

We also found a site that is offering signed e-books!  Sound odd?  Well check it out and find out what it is all about!

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

  1. Got Nowhere Hall to read and review, so really looking forward to checking that out, too. I’m still trying to wrap my head around Shatnerquake.

    Oh, and did you guys get my mailing address for the book I won last week?

Say something, dammit!
