Best in Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy

Just because a book falls under science fiction doesn't mean that a sci-fi buff will love it. It has to have a lot of things going for it. It's a little like baking a cake. You have to have just the right amount of ingredients or the cake just falls apart and look like crap. Books are the same.I'm practically speaking for myself but I'm sure a lot of people feel the same when it come to choosing a good book. One thing we depend on is reviews because they come from people like you and me. They are unbiased. If we like the book we say so. If we hate it, we aren't afraid to air our dirty laundry.I strongly suggest you to visit to learn more about this.


For me, a good book has to have a fantastic plot and believable characters. Too many books nowadays have what I like to call 2-dimensional characters. In other words they are alive and they talk a little in the book but we don't learn very much about them or their background. If you have none of that then it's next to impossible to care for them or hate them and we all love a character we can hate. One such character would be Big Jim Rennie from Stephen King's Under the Dome. I hated that guy and loved that I hated him. If you haven't read the book then you are missing out but one thing I would say is that the ending is a little on the 'weird' side. Still not sure if I liked the ending or not.

The book also has to have a good storyline. One that will keep us hooked until the last page. There's nothing worse than reading the first chapter of a book and knowing exactly how it's going to finish. Such a waste of money.One of the most important things is that it has to be unique. It has to stand out against all other books out there. Dan Brown accomplished that with The Da Vinci Code but did you keep your eye on the bookshelves for months after? It became a bit of a joke. The Messiah Code. The Lucifer Code. The Atlantis Code. The only thing I didn't see on the shelf alongside them was The Highway Code. I understand publishers jumped on the bandwagon as it was a sure way to make money. People were crying out for historical conspiracy stories but I felt the public were cheated out of a good story.


Nonetheless, it happened. We got sick and tired of all the copycats out there and they will be named and shamed as part of our quest to bring you the best new horror books, the best new science fiction books, and the best new fantasy books. We invite all reviews no matter how much you loved or hated a book. All we ask are you leaving out the profanity. We will blank it out with symbols but I'm sure people will get your meaning.
