Featured Book Review: Killing Your Boss

Killing Your Boss
Author : James DeSantis

Killing Your Boss was a great horror serial killer read. The author, James DeSantis did a marvelous job with this short story that had many twists in it. I like how the author describes each character on their own page. James was very descriptive with his writing to the point…

The Museum of Horrors

Straight from HWA comes such horror-writing masters as Richard Laymon, Peter Straub, Joyce Carol Oates, Tom Piccirilli, Conrad Williams, and Lisa Morton.  Eighteen masterful tales of horror by the very best.  Plus, there’s a brief introduction and afterward by editor Dennis Etchison, and the stories are followed by the contributing author’s biographies and a description of what HWA is and what they do.

Table Of Contents:

· The Museum Of Dr. Moses by Joyce Carol Oates

· Worse Than Bones by Ramsey Campbell

· King Of Outer Space by Peter Atkins

· Piano Bar Blues by Melanie Tem

· Those Vanished I Recognize by Tom Piccirilli

· Inland, Shoreline by Darren O. Godfrey

· The Window by Joel Lane

· Author, Author by Gordon Linzner

· Hammerhead by Richard Laymon

· Imbroglio by Conrad Williams

· Transorbital Love Probe by Th. Metzger

· The Impressionists In Winter by Susan Fry

· Whose Ghosts Are These by Charles L. Grant

· Perdido: A Fragment From A Work In Progress by Peter Straub

· In Real Life by William F. Nolan

· Pound Rots In Fragrant Harbour by Lisa Morton

· Apologia by Robert Devereaux

· The Bird Catcher by S.P. Somtow

My favorites would be ‘The Museum Of Dr. Moses’, a tale of an eccentric and gruesome elderly coroner and his vision of fame; kitty-cat tale ‘Author, Author’ by Gordon Linzner; the psychotic and horrific meltdown of ‘Hammerhead’ by Richard Laymon; Conrad Williams ethereal prose in ‘Imbroglio’; and the languid, ghostly horror of ‘The Impressionists In Winter’ by Susan Fry.

If you’re a fan of the horror anthology like I am, you won’t want to miss out on this tasty treat.  There’s enough shivers inside ‘The Museum Of Horrors’ to keep you up at night, quivering in your armchair with the three-way lamp on high.  Enjoy!
