Review: "Twinkle Toes: Dev Haskell Short Mystery" by Mike Faricy

She gradually makes inroads into his sleep fogged brain and he slowly realizes a girl he knew from high school long ago could be in real trouble.…

Review: "To Hell And Gone In Texas" by Russ Hall

Former Sheriff Detective Al Quinn is enjoying his retirement as well as his small home on the shores of a lake near Austin, Texas.  In some ways he misses his former job, but in others he is glad to be out as 25 years with the Travis County Sheriff’s Department was long enough even if he had a good boss.  His biggest annoyance these days at his isolated home is the drought.  If the unrelenting Texas sun keeps cooking the surrounding area forcing the lake level ever lower he will soon have to…

Stealing King Tut's Dagger

According to a report I read in Al Arabiya, researchers relying on “virtual autopsy” have discovered that King Tut was not as pretty as his golden mask. He had buck teeth and a severe limp, among other things.  But you got to admit, he was most certainly a flashy dude.

If you are wondering why…

"Hoods, Hot Rods, and Hellcats" edited by Chad Eagleton

The title of Hoods, Hot Rods, and Hellcats says it all even before you get to the cover tag line of Drive Fast. Kill Young. Love A Pretty Girl. This anthology edited by Chad Eagleton certainly delivers on that premise. The image of the 50's depicted in Happy Days, American Graffiti, and others is quickly shattered by the introduction by Mick Farren. It sets a tone that is held up quite well by the eight authors involved in the…

Review: "Windigo Island: A Novel" by William Kent Krueger

Life in a Haunted House

We never get any trick-or-treaters. I can tell myself that it’s because we’re the only house on a dead-end street and surely, being off the beaten path is part of the problem. But if I’m to be completely honest, it’s because I know that little kids are afraid of our home.

Yes, we live in THAT…
