Videodrone highlights some of Ben’s incredibly entertaining video reviews which are intelligently written and often packed with humour & innuendo. I hope you enjoy Ben’s work as much as I do.

Dark Hilarity: Joseph Sale
Tara Dufrain and Nicola Morgan are eleven-year-old girls growing up in the ‘90s, obsessed by Valentine Killshot, a metal screamo band. In particular, they’re enamoured by the lead singer, the mysterious yet charismatic Jed Maine who bears the epithet “The Cretin”. In Jed’s lyrics, he describes a world beyond the Dark Stars that he hopes one day to reach. The girls think it’s all just make-believe they share together until a freak, traumatic incident makes this world very real.
As adults, Tara and Nicola try to come to terms with the devastating catastrophe that changed their lives growing up, but to do so they will have to step once more into Jed Maine’s world and confront the man who took everything from them.
Algorithm Of The Gods: S.C. Mendes & Nikki Noir
There is an algorithm for fame, but beware its terms and conditions…
While searching for a missing YouTuber, private investigator Spencer Hardy walks into a standoff between an armed man and a young woman. Within seconds, Spencer is forced to kill the man, but the damsel in distress in anything but…
Her name is Cassie Diaz and she wastes no time lighting the corpse on fire, explaining that if they leave any evidence, they’ll be dead before sunset.
As they flee, Cassie weaves a fantastic tale of online celebrities, virtual reality, and a black-market conspiracy with ties to high levels of government officials.
Spencer isn’t sure if he’s been led astray by a mentally ill woman or if an evil agency is nipping at his heels, and there’s only twenty-four hours left for him to unravel the truth and solve the case.
Twisted Anatomy: Edited By Sci-Fi & Scary
It all started with talk of tentacles from unmentionables… From this gooey start, our body horror charity anthology was born. Within these pages, our authors have come together to delight and disgust with stories about perhaps the most horrifying thing of all: the human body.
Benefitting the Pulmonary Hypertension Association and the National Domestic Violence Hotline, Twisted Anatomy contains new stories from some of the best authors in indie horror and science fiction, alongside several new voices guaranteed to suck readers in for years to come.
Hairspray And Switchblades: V. Castro
When Maya and Magdalena lose their parents to a home invasion, Magdalena puts her dreams on hold and turns to exotic dancing. Cash is what the sisters need to stay together and keep Maya in an elite Catholic high school that has set her on the path for an athletic and academic college scholarship.
These sisters come from a bloodline of Jaguar shifters from Mexico and have gained unwanted attention. The San Antonio Stripper Ripper is stalking the streets, out for a specific kind of blood. Though Magdalena trades in skin, there is no way she will allow anyone to own her.
Steamy. Bloody. Dangerous. Hairspray and Switchblades, what more could a girl need to survive the hot streets?
Ben got a taste for terror after sneaking downstairs to watch The Thing from behind the sofa at age 9. He’s a big fan of extreme & bizarre horror and well as more psychological frights, and most things in between. When he’s not reading, he’s writing, and when he’s not writing he’s on Twitter @BensNotWriting or reviewing books on his YouTube channel, BLURB.
