Book Review: CREATURES OF WANT & RUIN by Molly Tanzer

This is my very first reading experience with Molly Tanzer. Ashley and I picked this book out as a read along for our curated horror book club, Night Worms. It came highly recommended to us by some authors who write urban/dark fantasy/horror: Alan Baxter, Chuck Wendig, and Seanan McGuire. New Year, New Fear!

After finishing this book last night, I would conclude that it's horror-adjacent. I don't want to create any false hope or expectations. It straddles a few different genres, mainly dark fantasy, historical fiction, and maybe a touch of...


Night Worms Book Party: WHISPERS IN THE DARK by Laurel Hightower

Night Worms Book Party: WHISPERS IN THE DARK by Laurel Hightower

The Night Worms review team got together to do another book party and this time we read WHISPERS IN THE DARK by Laurel Hightower. I just have to say as the person that compiles all of these blurbs for the Night Worms book parties, I have never seen so many exclamation points in the reviews I’m pulling quotes from. The team was EXCITED about this book. Check out the blurbs from our review team and the photos that showed up on social media.


We have a lot more book parties planned, so be on the...

(It was supposed to be a buddy read and I just flew through it, oops.) As soon as I set it down I knew I had to show this one off instead of my originally planned photo. THE BABYSITTER’S COVEN by Kate Williams is as much fun on the inside as it is on the outside. There are some...

Hysteria and Female Writers

How dumb old-timey doctors made females do nothing all day because they made books instead of babies.


For me to tell you what a struggle it was for early female writers, especially female horror writers, I have to give you a very brief overview of what hysteria was. Hysteria was the first mental disorder attributed to women. It was a catch-all-dumpster-fire of a diagnosis for women who didn’t behave like men thought they should. Didn’t want to have sex? HYSTERIA. You wanted to have “too much sex?” HYSTERIA. Didn’t obey your husband’s every command? HYSTERIA. Sometimes...

My Top Ten Most Anticipated Female-Written Horror Novels 
Kallie Weisgarber

February is Women in Horror Month and I am celebrating by reading works from lots of female authors. I think that all readers should be making a conscious effort to read female authors in February and every other month. The fact is that horror is largely a male-driven industry. Go to any major book store’s horror section (if they have one) and count how many female authors you see on the shelves. I’ve done the legwork and I can...
