Terror Beneath Cactus Flats has received a 4-star review on Goodreads.
James Rhodes had the following to say: “This is a great fun non-stop action piece. The author has set it in tourist western ghost town which allows for a good bit of cross genre entertainment. The pace is maintained from the first page to the last.
This book makes for an excellent short read, though I would also enjoy a longer read in the same universe.”
Thanks James for the great review. If you dear reader have read any of my works, please consider leaving a review on Goodreads or Amazon.

Good morning all.
Amazon user Smitty Jones left the following 4-star review for Winston & Baum and the 7 Mummies of Sekhmet.
“This is the third novel by this author I have read, and the second in this series. Each book has been an improvement over the previous. My biggest complaint with the last volume was that all the characters sounded the same, in this book it was largely remedied, with the majority having unique voices. Action sequences were written nicely, for the most part it was easy to tell what was going on. As this is an indie book their are grammar issues but my enjoyment of the book was not influenced but them.”

I released my latest short story Cabin for Rent at the end of last month. Below is the first review on Amazon.com for the story. Amazon user Ursula K. Raphael said the following in her 5-star review:
“Cabin For Rent by Seth Tucker features a creature not often portrayed in the horror genre. Tucker takes a risk by writing the story as a one-sided conversation, but the unusual POV and the accompanying flashbacks create the perfect level of suspense. The author has definitely added something captivating to the folklore of cursed cabins.”

Hey, I thought I’d start off the week with a book recommendation. This is still very much a Monster Monday, and the monster of the recommended book clearly reflects that.
Owl Goingback’s first novel, Crota, was a Bram Stoker award-winning book. It has everything that you would want in a monster-driven horror novel: compelling characters, a great monster, an interesting backstory, and a setting that lends to the atmosphere. I’ve read all of this authors books, and they are all good, but Crota has always been my favorite with its blend of modern horror and Native American myth. I suspect many of you will quickly fall in love with this book as well.

Synopsis: It is called Crota…and it has awakened. Sheriff Skip Harding is called out to investigate a double homicide unlike any he has seen before: the bodies are torn to pieces in the woods. Some think it’s a bear. But others whisper something different. It’s the Crota, they say. The great beast of legend that one day will reawaken. And that day has arrived….
Today, I wanted to bring up one of my all-time favorite films: Howard Hawks The Thing from Another World. This 1951 classic is based off of John W. Campbell’s Who Goes There and was remade into a more faithful retelling of the story by John Carpenter in 1982 as simply The Thing, starring Kurt Russell. Most of you will have at least heard of Carpenter’s film. However, due to stricter guidelines and effect limitations the original dealt with a plant-based lifeform that did not mimic creatures, but instead used blood to grow clones of itself.
This movie is well-written, acted, and still has a few scenes that will make you jump. I know that last one because when I show this movie to people for the first time, they always jump at the same places.

As some of you may be able to figure by my book Friedkin’s Curse: A Werewolf Tale of Terror, werewolves hold a very special place for me, and I love alliteration so this month will see Werewolf Wednesday every week.
On this the first Werewolf Wednesday of October 2017, I’ve got a great recommendation for you. Bad Moon is not your usual film in this genre. After being wounded on an assignment, a photojournalist visits his sister and her children, but Thor, the family dog, knows something is wrong. This film is well-acted and written. The only really weak point of this film is the transformation that they show, using early CGI in an unimpressive scene. Based off of the book Thor, this movie takes a great approach to werewolves and shows just how much a dog is willing to do to protect its family. Below is the official synopsis, and you can click on the image below to pick up a copy of the movie.
Synopsis: Full, crescent, quarter…each is a Bad Moon for Ted Harrison. By day, he’s a photojournalist visiting family in the Pacific Northwest. By night, he transfigures into a horrific half-human: a werewolf. Dead men tell no tales, so Ted’s sure he alone knows about his vile double life. The secret, however, may be out. The family dog Thor, devoted to defending the household, has his suspicions.
Writer/director Eric Red (Cohen and Tate, Body Parts) delivers a new infusion of thrills with this red blooded shocker. Michael Pare (Streets of Fire) portrays Ted, hiding his accursed condition from his sister (Mariel Hemmingway, Lipstick, Star 80) and nephew (Mason Gamble). What better way to hide it than to create suspicion that the local killings are the work of another: especially if that other is the family’s all-too-wise German shepherd!
