The Book of the Crowman by Joseph D’Lacey

The Book of The Crowman is a direct sequel to Black Feathers. I strongly urge you to read Black Feathers first, honest, I'm not kidding you know. There is also a good chance that this review may contain spoilery type elements if you haven't read book one. It is the Black Dawn, a time of environmental apocalypse, the earth wracked and dying. It is the Bright Day, a time long generations hence, when a peace has descended across the world. The search for the shadowy figure known only as the Read more [...]

Splinters by Joseph D’Lacey

Indulge yourself and let Joseph D'Lacey take you on a journey to the deepest recesses of his mind. From the author of Meat and Garbage Man comes a new collection of incredible short stories that showcase one of the finest writers of dark fiction.

Snake Eyes by Joseph D’Lacey

Last year I had the good fortune to read The Kill Crew and then Meat by Joseph D'Lacey. Each were superb examples of the horror genre, both are darkly bleak but utterly compelling. D'Lacey's latest publication is Snake Eyes, a single volume split into two separate novellas. This is a slight departure for the author as the first story moves into the realms of science fiction while the second has a more fantastical tone. A Man of Will and Experience – Robert Johnson dreams of spiders, thousands Read more [...]

Meat by Joseph D’Lacey

Abyrne is a decaying town, trapped by an advancing wilderness. Its people depend on meat for their survival. Meat supplied by the processing plant on the edge of town. Meat is sanctified in Abyrne, a precious commodity eaten with devout solemnity by everyone except for a handful of people who won't, who suspect that the town is evil, rotten to its core. A feud smolders between the town's religious and secular powers - whoever controls the food supply controls everything. But the townsfolk are Read more [...]

The Kill Crew by Joseph D’Lacey

Barricaded into a city block called The Station, two hundred souls have survived the apocalypse. So far. Was it a bomb? A biological attack? Phase one of an invasion? No one knows. The Long Silence has begun.  After dark, thousands of the city's inhabitants - neither living nor dead - prowl the streets snatching survivors. The Station is under constant threat. Each day a lottery decides the seven members of The Kill Crew - a night shift of civilian soldiers. Their mission is simple: Extermination.  Sheri Read more [...]
