The world has gone to Hell. A virus has seemingly come from no where, bringing with it a number of conspiracy theories as to its origin. Some of the theories are outlandish whilst some have an eerie ring of possible truth around them. But, as the world goes into lock down with people living in isolation only allowed out of their homes for essential journeys, people soon realise there are greater things to worry about than COVID-19.
As the virus continues to get a grip of the world, mankind reveals the many monsters within.
People all over the world are [re]reading ‘THE STAND’ to discuss “similarities” on terror driven social media, and apocalyptic horror stories are driving the conspiracy theorists to crash Reddit. I think that ‘THE TAINTED SOULS‘ is exactly what we need to help us get through this… something to REALLY terrify us!! It helps us realize that things aren’t as bad as they could be…
This is a great collaboration between Shaw & Shaun. They sure know how to remind us that the real monsters are human.
The dark mind of Sea Caummisar brings us a story that the director of ‘Boxing Helana‘ would call FUCKED UP!
Release Date June 12, 2020 – Available for pre-order!
Acrotomophilia:The deriving of sexual gratification from fantasies or acts involving an amputee.
After Willard’s wife was disfigured in a car accident, he found himself to be even more attracted to her. Then his obsession grew more everyday.
WARNING DISTURBING SCENES OF EXTREME VIOLENCE.
“Sometimes in life, people have a knack for things. Some people have a knack for art, or playing a musical instrument. It’s almost as if they were born with some sort of talent. Willard’s knack just happened to be abducting women and keeping them tied up.”
After an accident that causes his wife of 40 years to lose her leg, Willard sits in the hospital at her bedside and tries to sort through the various feelings he’s having.
And which one of those feelings – exactly, is causing the tent to form at the front of his pants?
They had met in prison.
Dennis felt terrible about his crime, and judging from his beaten & bruised body… the other inmates didn’t find his deeds tolerable, either. Except for one man. One man befriended him when no one else could stand the sight of him. That man was Ryan, it this began a long, and very special friendship.
Things are different today, though.
Today is Dennis’s birthday. The card waiting for him from Ryan brings him no joy. He peeks his head into Ryan’s room to see if he’s awake, and the only words spoken to him by his best friend in the world are… “Please, kill me.”
PARALYSED is the new 5 star extreme horror novel from Matt Shaw. Continuing with his Black Cover series, and pushing boundaries of decency, Matt Shaw takes you on a journey with a serial killer and his accomplice, Dennis – a man who’ll do absolutely anything for his broken master.
This is promoted as one of Matt’s Black Cover extreme horror books, but it’s so much more than that. PARALYSED isn’t just a quick ride for cheap thrills – it’s a heartbreaking story about the friendship & love that developed between two of society’s cast offs. I don’t use that term lightly, either. I could feel my heart breaking as the story unfolded. Only Matt could evoke this response from a tale about a convicted rapist, and his murderous best friend. (sl http://wp.me/p37DRX-1kO)
Like gore? Like horror? You’re in for a treat because Matt Shaw brings the crazy right to your kindle! Stay up to date on All Things Matt, and be notified of new titles by following his Amazon author page, his official blog, and Matt Shaw Publications on Goodreads, and Facebook.
Matt Shaw may have set off to just give readers a fun exploitation ride, but ASHES: A novella of horror, gore and cannibalism is so much more than that!
The story’s flashbacks that lead to present day circumstances had me fully invested in the characters – rooting for one, while hoping for another’s grisly demise. (Don’t judge me – there are always characters that deserve to die horribly! Look at The Cat In The Hat…)
WARNING: This is an extreme horror novel. Some scenes may offend or cause upset. With that in mind, please be aware this story is intended for a mature audience only.
When financial problems hit Ryan he is forced to move his family to a smaller, more cost-effective, home on the outskirts of the city. But when his decisions lead him – and his family – directly into the path of a vicious serial killer who enjoys nothing more than to torture his victims, Ryan soon realises things will never be the same for any of them again.
I’ve just read some of the Amazon reviews, and I’m pissed.
I kind of take these bad reviews personally, because I love this book. I respect your right to dislike, but if you’re going to start slinging insults – have the balls to sign your name. Hiding behind the word ANONYMOUS is a dick move.
TORTURED is not at all what I expected.
Now, maybe it’s just me – I expected a head-on assault to the senses, buckets of blood & gore galore. That is not what I got. Yes, I admit that I am becoming a bit desensitized to extreme horror – but I don’t think that’s the issue here. There are some pretty squirmy scenes, graphic, disturbing, but necessary to describe the mind set of the killer.
I never discuss these things, but I want to mention that Matt is doing things a little differently lately, and I’m really impressed with the new direction. The storylines are going deeper, and character development is a bit more detailed, (but still not unnecessarily padded – thank you, Matt!). What I love the most is how the stories are beginning to weave together. Different characters cross paths, locations are being revisited, older stories are tonight’s local news broadcast – it’s brilliant.
This book is full of winks & nods, I had to stop reading in the middle to go comment on Matt’s Facebook wall 🙂
I have a feeling that we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Detective Andrews.
You know how hard it is for me to review short stories! I’m always afraid of posting spoilers. So, here’s a Short & Sweet review for a short story…
This is a very good, short, YA zombie story written by J.A.Konrath and Talon Konrath. Don’t skip the intro 🙂 Tense moments and some humor that got me to laugh out loud, I’d recommend to everyone – zombie fan or not.
This AS was a surprise to some ‘Konrath’ fans. Now that I think about it though…there are many adult horror authors who are taking part in short YA stories… let me get a list together for us – this should be a fun discussion!
