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 Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger

This is the first installment is an epic tale that defines Stephen King’s career and ties almost all his books together. This first volume introduces us to Roland, the last gunslinger in a world that has "moved on", and his quest to find the Dark Tower. Roland is a sort of lawman with the duties of a knight from King Arthur lore, in a land that seems like a post-nuclear war ravaged society. He is in pursuit of the man in black, a wizard of sorts that he has a history with. During his pursuit across the desert, Roland comes to befriend a boy, Jake, who seems to have come into Roland’s world through his death in our own. Their journey following the man in black takes them into the caves of the slow mutants before finally catching the evil wizard. However, Rolands journey has only begun. This book, as well as the ones that follow, are quite different from Kings usual work, and in my opinion stand out as his best work. This series is more like a kind of fantasy horror that rivals Lord Of The Rings. Look for the new, revised editions of the first four books.
