Stronger Than Hate by Robert Essig

Francine watches, and she listens to them from below. TRAPPED. She is hurt, and imprisoned at the bottom of a sinkhole that opened up in her precious garden while they torment her.

Familiar faces look down upon her—the worst students she ever had the displeasure of teaching before she retired from the local high school. They snicker as money changes hands. They spit on her. Throw things at her.

And there’s no way in hell they’re going to get help.

But someone else knows about Francine’s predicament. Her neighbor Greg, another former student. The one whose peers called him Lazy Eye. The one who always looked to be accepted even at the expense of Francine’s safety. Does he have it in his heart to do the right thing, to come to his senses and call the police?

At the mercy of deviants, Francine Mosely must harness her inner strength to survive their torments, but how much can she take? Through guidance from the memory of her late husband she banishes herself from what is happening, retreating to her most precious memories, but what happens when the horrors around her infiltrate her mind? How much can she take before breaking down? Is Francine Mosely STRONGER THAN HATE?

Angel on my right shoulder… “Ahh, revenge, but at what cost?” Devil on my left shoulder leans over and whispers in my ear… “Forty bucks, and ¼ bag of weed. Me… “I’M THINKING!”

SG in STRONGER THAN HATE, by Robert Essig

It’s been a while since I’ve read human depravity at this level!
The story worked – the bully and the bullied, the mentality that allowed this to go on for so long, the drugs, (it had to have the drugs), and how so many kept a secret – it’s all there, working together, and believable. Till the very ending bit
and that’s the reason I only gave 4 stars instead of 5. Because of ‘The Dark Ones‘.

WARNING

*Not really – but possible spoilers ahead*
It’s only my personal opinion, others may completely disagree. ‘The Dark Ones’ took the story somewhere that I didn’t think was needed. As a coping mechanism – yes. But, the bit at the end was something I think the story could have done without.

How to connect with the author: Find him on his blog Robert Essig’s Confusions, Delusions, and Formidable Impressions, Facebook, follow @Robert_Essig on Twitter, Amazon, and Goodreads.

Hogg

by Samuel R. Delany

The classic and controversial novel made available again; Acclaimed winner of the William Whitehead Memorial Award for a lifetime’s contribution to gay and lesbian literature, bestselling and award-winning SF author Samuel R. Delany wrote Hogg three decades ago. Since then it has been one of America’s most famous ‘unpublishable’ novels. The subject matter of Hogg is our culture of sexual violence and degeneration. Delany explores his disturbing protagonist Hogg on his own turf – rape, pederasty, sexual excess – exposing an area of violence and sexual abuse from the inside. As such, it is a brave but necessary book.

A shocking and contemporary insight into a parallel world of sex and cravings that lies in wait in the shadows of our own world.

“HOGG is the story of a man—a depraved trucker named Franklin Hargus, whom the people he works for call Hogg—and of the nameless boy who tells the story of three days of unspeakable sexual violence and devastation, which, together, they initiate in a small seaside American city in the middle of the last century. Hogg is a towering brute who makes his living as a rapist for hire. By the end of a series of vicious attacks, kidnappings, and mass murders, the reader will wonder who is more corrupt: the man or the boy.”

The narrator of Hogg is a Huck Finn–like youngster caught in society’s most sinister seams—but unlike Huck, he passes no moral judgments on the violence he takes part in . . .

Amazon

This got pretty gross.
But I had heard so many things about this novel of ‘sexual violence and degeneration’ that I had to read it. I’m really surprised that something this controversial was written over 30 years ago.
But, again… It got pretty gross.

You know what’s next, right? COWS. ‘Till next time…

Keeping Your Sanity When Dealing With Bad Reviews

REACTING TO BAD REVIEWS ~

Tips and Tricks from SG

You just read a very negative review of your work on a popular website – now what? 

– First things first –  react immediately.
Drink. Heavily, if need be.
Shop. Buying something expensive helps.
– Anonymously mail a dead fish to the reviewer who spoke such blasphemy against your book.
Respond to their review, explaining why they are an ignorant douche-bag.
Make them retract the review. Some ways include coercion, extortion, blackmail, kidnapping, and torture…
Review them.
Print out your bad reviews, then burn them. Or wallpaper your office – for motivation.
Post reviewer’s address online, and encourage your fans to mail them …

THIS is how some horror authors handle bad reviews from worse reviewers…

‘FUCKNESS’ – A Re-Read Turned Into Something Better Than The Original!

Fuckness by Andersen Prunty

fuckness_thumb_01

Audiobook rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I was about 25% into a reread of this yesterday when I ran into a copy of the audiobook via the author’s Twitter feed (@andersenprunty). I was doing a few things, so I switched it on right away.
Normally, (well, back when real life WAS normal), audio books are just a convenience for me, not a preference. I’ve trained my brain to become friends with my Kindle robo-voice to the point where I can listen to her during work commutes just like any narrator.
BUT…
The narrator of this Audible edition of Fuckness is so fuckin’ awesome that this ‘reread’ turned into an entirely new experience.

Jeff Bower is the narrator of Fuckness, and although I’m about to stalk his ass to see what else he’s done – he could just be The Voice of Andersen Prunty in my head forevermore. (Just DL’d an audio book which A.P. narrates himself, I’ll comment more after listening.)
Jeff Bower though…how can I explain… he has this evil little giggle that he does, kind of to himself, and it adds something undefinable to his character. Love it. It reminds me of that evil, psychotic side of myself when I’m heartily laughing at something that I shouldn’t be – does that help explain it?

I just made a quote from this book into a #BleedingMeme, check it out the new #BleedingMemes Page HERE.

bm.madprunty
Looking for the audiobook code? There are some codes left for many of his books, US and UK, HERE.

So, I’m trying to link you up to Jeff Bower directly, but I’m getting lost in infinite link loops. Oh, the horror!! But, I  am seeing that he narrates non-fiction Wicca books, so… another bonus point for Jeff!  (UPDATE: Twitter @JeffBowerLA –  Loving husband. Aspiring Muppet.)

Peace, Love, and necrophilia ♡

Coming Soon from Terry M. West

Welcome To All Kinds Of Hell

41uftRL-kdL._SY346_
Release Date May 29, 2020
I requested an ARC to R&R

The Devil’s List is a dark tale of insanity and horror from Terry M. West. In the small Texas town of Pleasant Storm during the summer of 1985, Chuck Beall embarks on a journey of brutality and madness. Convinced he’s possessed by a demon that compels him to kill, Chuck’s murderous attention shifts from random transients to those he blames the most for his abusive past.

I see the sign welcoming me to Pleasant Storm and I get a warm, fuzzy feeling. It feels like coming home, and this is right where I’m supposed to be. It’s good to be back. 

Chuck Beall has been picked on his whole life. Family, school mates, town folk, no one missed a chance to remind he was different, unwanted, and unloved. They beat it into him hard enough that he’d never forget.
Tormented, and wandering around late one night out by the old Campbell property, Chuck comes face to face with a demon his mama used to tell legends about – The Plat-Eye.
Now that he’s not walking alone anymore, it’s time to turn the sins back onto the sinners, and everything is about to change. Revenge is going taste sweet, and warm.

Games 5: Donny by Sea Caummisar

Coming Soon From The Dark Mind of Sea Caummisar

41JqDq3UwML
Release date Sept 18, 2020 – I requested an ARC to R&R

Here’s a little refresher as to what happened in the Games 4: Maze…
Sara and Donny created a pain maze and forced people to go room to room, which eventually led to painful deaths. Sara was dealing with being pregnant, and after an injury she was put on bedrest for the sake of the unborn child. Donny decided to train the survivor of the maze as his own partner.
The survivor of the pain maze is doing everything in his power to become Donny’s best friend.
This book picks up where that book left off.

Scenes of graphic violence. You’ve been warned.

I think that this is my favorite book in this series. Let’s see, how much can I say without spoiling anything…
Book 5 feels like it has come full circle, everything has been touched upon, thought out, and dealt with, so knowing that Book 6 is coming feels like an added bonus.
I also love how the author’s different worlds are weaving together at the edges – connections are made that make us feel special for knowing these little details of ‘insider information’.
I appreciate Sara a little more than I did before. I know I have see-sawed with my opinion of her since meeting her, but I’m happy with where I’ve landed with regards to her character.
I absolutely adore Rick, and was pleasantly surprised by his arrival. He’s quirky and seems honestly friendly. I’m happy to see that he’s eating better.
I think that the idea of a seventh book isn’t out of the question. Games 7 – The Prequel: Andy’s Story could hold some very mind blowing groundwork.
