I have read several great books and novellas this year. It is hard to choose a select few because 2017 has been a great year for horror. This year we have seen indie horror publications go under, but we have also witnessed IT break box office records. In order for indie horror publications to succeed, people must buy their books, talk about their books, and review their books. Support indie horror. It’s all about getting the word out. I love indie horror and I hope the industry has a helluva year in 2018. I would like to say thank you to the indie horror community. I would also like to thank all the indie horror book reviewers who have been supportive this year. I can’t say enough about this community. Thank you, guys!
So… here’s the list.
Bone White is an excellent read! It will definitely scare the hell out of you! The setup is great and the characters are superb. It starts off with a bang and doesn’t let up.
We Came Back is a great book. I can’t say enough about it. This book has a lot of heart. If you have never read Patrick Lacey, then you should remedy this immediately. Also, Dream Woods is another kickass book by this author. You should read that one too.
Michael Patrick Hicks has found his voice with this book. I can’t say enough about this book. This book should win some awards.
Blanky is brilliant. Kealan Patrick Burke delivers every time. He can take an inanimate object and literary scare the hell out of you.
James Newman hits you right in the feels with this one. Everyone should read this book. Odd Man Out is one of the most relevant books right now as far as social issues go.
Jason Parent can write! It is gritty and vicious. That ending was something else. Great book!
