Guest Book Review by Carrie Buchanan

LUCKY’S GIRL

lucky's girl

I bought Lucky’s Girl by William Holloway for a number of reasons, but mainly because I’m in love with the High Moor series and Lucky’s Girl has been produced by the same publishing house, Horrific Tales. It has been a long time since the bad guy in a book was anything more than a troubled soul, whom should be in receipt of therapy, yet Lucky’s Girl achieves way more than that. Clever, twisted and creepy, but most of all disturbing. Touches of Cthulhu with a Wendigo style that is utter brilliance.

Set in a small town called Elton upon Grove island, Lucky’s Girl centers around three main characters: Lucky, who thinks himself a prophet with a personality like silk, Kenny, who is attempting to be the family man, and Sheriff Jerry, a recovering alcoholic. Beautifully scripted and the scenes are perfectly executed. Add to this wolves, wendigos and ancient gods and you’ve got a solid, excellent read.

Don’t read it in bed alone, seriously creepy!

There is a fabulous interview over on Ginger Nuts of Horror with William Holloway giving insights into what makes him a great author – and that, I can assure you, he is.

Tooth and Claw: an enhanced eBook concerning werewolves.

Don't get on his bad side

Who trusted God was love indeed
And love Creation’s final law
Tho’ Nature, red in tooth and claw
With ravine, shriek’d against his creed

Tooth and Claw has finally arrived. Oh yes! The site having opened for business this very week. Tooth and Claw is a collaborative work of collected artists, writers, and musicians to produce an enhanced eBook about Werewolves.

Offering so much more than a simple book, Tooth and Claw is a dark and twisted look at the world of werewolves. Collecting several short stories by both established and up and coming authors, Tooth and Claw binds them into an unholy marriage to be downloaded at your mortal peril.

An original score by Brandon Rucker introduces the site alongside powerful, thought provoking art by the esteemed Jack Rogers.  The stories are beautifully crafted, darkly moving, and tense as the mood dictates. Plus they don’t shy away from the gore when called for.

As an extra bonus, Tooth and Claw boasts a short, untold story from Graeme Reynolds’ High Moor – currently ranking in the top 100 books of occult/horror in 2011. High Moor has received critical praise of late, and if you like the look of Tooth and Claw then check out High Moor for an truly excellent read.

Tooth and Claw is available over multiple platforms, stories can be downloaded individually or as part of the collective whole. Take a look at Werewolf Contingency Plans while there and Werewolves are Real, both are free and a damn good read.
