Big interview with Tina Marie over at the Tina’s Bookcase blog. Check it🙂

Tina's Bookcase

Kit Power is a great friend, and brilliant writer. Have only known him a short time, and it’s been an amazing ride. Hop aboard ….

Kit lives in the UK with this lovely family. He’s witty, funny, kind, smart, talented, an all around great guy, and you will adore him, just as much as I do. When not writing, he’s front man for The Disciples Of Gonzo, . This man’s talent knows no bounds. If you haven’t picked up one of his books, or an anthology that he’s been a part of, you are truly missing out!

All of Kit’s books are available on and can be easily found on his author page. Kit’s books come in paperback and kindle formats.

The first book of Kit’s that I read was GODBOMB. It’s a very thought provoking book. I know it made me think about my beliefs (or lack…

I’ve Become Radicalized



Yeah, radicalized. Go ahead: think about Muslims and panic, you bigot. Now listen up because I have some shit to get off my chest. When someone becomes radicalized, it means they become more radical, especially when it comes to politics, and radical only means that they advocate for some sort of change. True, the term usually applies to people who participate in the very bad things that come from political/religious fanaticism, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t use the word. I’ve been radicalized, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

You see, I’ve been inhabiting Otherness for almost a decade. I’m the guy women run from the second they step off the bus. I’m the guy mothers pull their kids away from when I walk through the park. I’m the guy some white dude wearing a tie asks if he has a green card during a job interview…

Bleeding Springsteen: How Bruce’s Writing Inspires this Weirdo.

Glenn Rolfe Scribbles Madness


I recently posted a list of fifteen writers who have had an influence on my work. One of those writers was Bruce Springsteen. Does he write books? No, but he does write stories. He creates characters and places and moments in his songs that breathe just as well as Jack Torrance or Scout Finch. You’ve lived in his towns. You’ve felt the pain of losing someone close to you and the joy of doing the things you love. He writes about things that have influenced his day-to-day life as well as yours, and he does so effortlessly. Okay, he makes it seem that way, but I’m sure he fights for his words as hard as any of us writers do.

There are plenty of authors who mention the impact of his work in their own. Brian Keene is the big one that comes to mind (he does have a book…

Pounded in the Butt by Social Justice Warriors by Dingleberry Peckerwood


I know what you’re thinking: “Social Justice Warriors are just crybabies. They’re nothing but a group of idiots complaining about everything, accusing everyone of being a racist, and denying the fact that what they do is actually pseudo-progressive authoritarianism and they don’t give a shit about justice.” You know what? You have a point. There is a lot of that going on, but the problem is not that. No, the problem is that you feel very comfortable putting everyone in that group. That leads to your All Lives Matter bullshit and your constant complaining and your unending quest for examples that can fit that mold instead of paying attention and realizing that at least one out of every ten times, the issue being discussed is important and the group fighting for attention actually deserves it.

Let me tell you why you hate SJWs so much: you hate them because you’re…

ZERO SAINTS by Gabino Iglesias

Yeah, this book is awesome.

Shotgun Logic

So. Gabino Iglesias. I had never read any of his work before. To be honest, I didn’t really know that he was a fiction author. We were facebook friends and I had read a ton of book cubrirreviews by him. In fact, I greatly admire him as a book reviewer and follow his reviews avidly. But I had never encountered his fiction. Then I started seeing this book pop up over and over again. All over Facebook and Twitter people were raving about it, and it got so hot the feds had to step in to keep it from burning down the internet. You all remember that, right? Well, I might be exaggerating just a tad, but that’s the way it should have gone. The book is ZERO SAINTS and if things happened the way they should in life the internet would be a smoking ruin right now.

Being 100% serious…

The Bad Game by Adam Millard (Book Review)


THE BAD GAME by Adam Millard

Adam Millard’s latest novel from Sinister Horror Company, THE BAD GAME, is the best of pulp horror fiction with undeniably gripping B-movie atmosphere. Think Children of the Corn meets Night of the Living Dead and add a jigger of rocket fuel, but don’t get confused. This isn’t a zombie story, it’s something so much better, so much more interesting.

Jamie Garret is a fifteen-year-old living in Hemsby, a British seaside town in the thriving throes of the tourist season. Great for visitors, but boring for Jamie who spends his idle time at the local arcade or fending off a group of town bullies who have been getting more aggressive as of late. One day two things happen to change Jamie’s life: He meets a girl and an unusual arcade game arrives at his local haunt, one that is so strange and intriguing that it…

An Open Letter to Catcallers


Dear assholes,

You know those things you say to women in the streets? Yeah, you have to cut that out. Seriously. Don’t tell me you mean nothing by it. Don’t tell me it’s harmless. Don’t tell me that’s how you let women know they’re beautiful. All those are silly, invalid excuses. If you verbally assault women in the streets, if you do absolutely anything to make them feel uncomfortable or threatened, you’re a scumfuck and need to quit it right now.

See, last week I received the last check from an online journalism course I was teaching for a university in New York. I was standing in line to use one of the two ATMs at my bank to deposit it when a pale woman wearing a black tank top joined the line for the other machine. The guy behind me said something about the strength of the tank top’s…

WE ARE THE MARTIANS: a message from the Editor

Aim for the heart

WE ARE THE MARTIANS: The Legacy of Nigel Kneale, will now be published by the PS Publishing, not Spectral Press…

It has come to my attention that there are still some people who might not be aware of Spectral’s financial problems, and my decision to take the book to a new publisher.

It has also come to my attention that the process for contacting Spectral regarding refunds has not been as smooth nor as straight forward as might have been hoped.

In an effort to do what I can toward ameliorating this, it seems wise to make a statement here, and ask all who read it to please help disseminate this message so that everyone who preordered the book is made aware of the situation and of the right contact details for making enquiries about refunds.

First, and most importantly: If you preordered WE ARE THE MARTIANS from Spectral Press…

Universal Monsters in review: Frankenstein (1931)

Great piece from fellow Gingernutter Dawn…

Machine Mean


While Dracula (1931) may have been the first, the granddaddy of the Universal Monster pictures, it was Frankenstein who set the monstrous industry into a golden era of bringing frightful stage plays into the silver screen. And likewise became the highlight of eccentric director James Whales’ career. I’m sure you’re probably thinking, “But Tommy, wasn’t one of Whales best pictures Journey’s End (1930), a full year before Frank made the big screen.” And yes. I would agree. Journey’s End was a fantastic war drama depicting the lives of British soldiers as they fought in trench warfare during the Great War and equally important as one of the first talkies. Be-that-as-it-may, it was Frankenstein to which the director really shined. And perhaps one could argue, it was his 1935 sequel, Bride of Frankenstein to which we could pin as his masterpiece. But that review will have to wait for another day. Today, the lovely…
