Best Reads Of 2019
Here are my top 5 reads of 2019 (no particular order):
The Artist and Other Short Stories by P. J. Blakey-Novis
These six short stories get into your head and under your skin, running the gamut of the genre from supernatural to body horror.
dRain by Erik Handy
An intense manga-infused novel with epic battle scenes, rich mythology, and great characters that had me cheering for their victory – this book has it all.
Wakeful Children by S. P. Oldham
Eleven tales which span different time periods, tackle unique fears, and linger in the dark corners of your mind for days after reading them.
Screechers by Kevin J. Kennedy and Christina Bergling
This fantastic novella takes the reader into the hearts and minds of both humans and the Screechers as they separately traverse the nightmarish world that has been left behind from nuclear fallout.
At Home in the Shadows (Black Shuck Shadows #12) by Gary McMahon
This collection of five haunted house stories digs so much deeper than simple spooks and things that go bump in the night. I was blown away by the strength of the writing, the unique and unusual plot lines, and the interesting characters.
J. A. Sullivan is a horror writer and paranormal enthusiast, based in Brantford, ON, Canada. Attracted to everything non-horror folks consider strange, she’s spent years as a paranormal investigator, has an insatiable appetite for serial killer information, and would live inside a library if she could.
Her latest short story can be found in Don’t Open the Door: A Horror Anthology (out July 26, 2019), and other spooky tales can be found on her blog. She’s currently writing more short stories, a novel, and reading as many dark works as she can find.
