Told in various formats, WWZ realistically compiles interview transcripts, classified documents and first hand accounts of the zombie apocalypse. The layout, as well as the gripping stories themselves, kept me reading for hours straight. ~ Reviewed by Tara Swahlan

Stephen King’s house of horrors

Joyland will probably be remembered as a minor entry in Stephen King’s impressive collection of books, but even minor (not to be confused with second-rate) King is more addictively readable than most contemporary authors. The new novel, released in paperback, doesn't have the epic sweep of Under the Dome or the intricate structure of 11-22-63, but Joyland is not unlike hopping on to one of the rides at the amusement park in North Carolina where most of the book is set. You just hold on and wait for the thrills.

The novel is part murder mystery, part ghost story. It has many of the elements that have become Mr. King’s literary trademarks over the years: a small town setting, a sympathetic child (who shares Danny Torrance’s gift for shining), an array of colorful secondary characters, a mascot of sorts -- in this case, Howie the Happy Hound -- and a particularly vicious murderer on the prowl.

Reissue of a gripping psychological horror story about identical twins, one good and one bad. There is a revelation as jaw-dropping as anything I've ever read, and the author masterfully keeps the reader from seeing it coming. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves

The Last Werewolf (Last Werewolf Trilogy #1) Cover Image

Availability: Backordered
Published: Vintage - April 17th, 2012

Would it be inappropriate to suggest that a werewolf, if so inclined, can get a lot of tail? Appropriate or not, it is certainly true of Jake, the title character in this enjoyable blend of horror and sex. His numerous romantic conquests help to offset the downside of his transformations into a ravaging beast, especially when his first victim was his beloved wife. It might have happened centuries ago, but the hurt lingers. Jake is also being pursued by an organization that is determined to wipe out his kind. Duncan's unlikely meld of supernatural lore, raunchy explicitness, and existential tragedy makes for a uniquely entertaining read. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
