Today’s reading…

I have a story from the wonderfully talented John F. Leonard to read today.

The Bledbrooke Works

I’ve been looking forward to this. I always love John’s stories and I lm sure this will be no different.

Review to follow on GingerNuts of Horror.

My next read…

I’ve had a decent April of reading so far with The Butchering Art and several short stories from Dona Fox.

I think it’s time for a novel now, and one I’ve had for a little while is Husker by Marc W. Johnson.

A Perfect Memory – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book Review

A Perfect Memory

Dona Fox

This is yet again a wonderfully intricate story from Dona Fox. A Perfect Memory sucks you in, chews you up and spits you back out ten fold. A very clever piece of twisted psychological horror. You never quite quite know what’s real or who is who. I’m still a little unsure. A chilling tale of identity and government secrets from start to finish.

It is put together with such perfection down the last detail. The characters are woven deeply into the plot with a level of writing ability one could only hope to aspire to.

There is so much involved for such a short piece. I really am in awe of the writing of Dona Fox.

My next read…

Keeping the momentum going this month, my next read, and my third from Dona Fox:

Looking forward to this if the last couple are anything to go by.

Upcoming Review


The Butchering Art byLindsey Fitzharris

My next review to write up for GingerNuts of Horror is that of TheButchering Art. The tale of Joseph Lister’s journey though Victorian medicine and his idealistic views of antiseptic procedures.

Looking forward to writing this up. I’m quite nervous though as I don’t feel I can do it justice.

All the Children on the Porch -⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Book Review

Another exquisitely creepy read from Dona Fox. I love these shorts, they are written with a depth and expertise that’s hard to find. I can only hope to write something half as good one day.

This starts pretty innocent and simple, but quickly develops into a tragic story of family and the dark secrets within. I can’t say too much as I really wouldn’t want to spoil the ending, or the build up, but my word it’s a good one.

It is another really quick read, about 20-30 minutes. Perfect for those train journeys and lunch breaks at work. It has a quick pace. great characterization and depth and is one I feel I could read over and over and still be surprised and horrified.

It’s truly quite shocking, down to the last line.

“I like mine bloody. I get whatever I want now; I’m not a child anymore”.
