I bid you welcome…

Cujo; book three of RIP XV

Ah, Cujo. When you’re into horror/suspense/thriller stories, can you go wrong with Stephen King? No, no you can’t.

I realize The Puppet Masters and Invasion of the Body Snatchers will be very similar, but I can’t wait to read the source material that spawned […]

Readers Imbibing Peril 14

It’s that time again friends! Time for all beachy, sunny, summer things to turn into pumpkin spice, sweaters, spooky stories and autumn things! Autumn happens to be my favorite time of the year.
