Rating:


New standalone fantasy novel The Shadow Glass by Josh Winning is a surefire hit for fans of The Dark Crystal, stories that explore loss, and high-stakes adventures. This novel is, perhaps first and foremost, a love letter to fantasy movies involving puppets, with The Dark Crystal being the top of the list. Yet, this is a case of a story being so much more than the sum of its parts, the sort of story that comes to life, leaps off the page, and lingers long after you’ve read the final page.

Release Date: October 26, 2020
Publisher: Ritual Limited
Rating:


Horror author Adam Nevill has dozens of traditional horror novels under his belt. Perhaps one of the most intriguing books he’s released is a slim, 100-page anthology titled Wyrd and Other Derelictions. This is quite a unique title, one that focuses on the horror of places that have already seen destruction.

Pennyblade is a new standalone novel from author and screenplay writer J.L. Worrad. This is a low fantasy, a story definitively set in a world that is not our own but one with little of the intense, formal magic systems so often found in the genre. Instead, what we have is a plot driven by politics, old families vying for power, and whispers of an old, terrifying being that may be all too real.
