Over the moon with this review of the audiobook of “Shadows and Teeth” Volume 2, especially the special mention my “We All Ate The White Flesh” receives. It’s true… You really will never eat turnips again. Man, don’t you just love it when an author’s imagination is able to conjure up something utterly unique from the most unlikely of places.  That’s exactly what author Chris Lynch has done.  Using Aleksey Tolstoy’s classic fairy-tale ‘The Giant Turnip’ as his inspiration, Lynch has taken the story further, Continue Reading

It was well-worn patter, with almost as many miles on it as most of the salesman’s stock. “She’s seen better days,” replied David, kicking one Continue Reading

Oscar and Meredith watched the cave people drag the carcass of the creature into the cave. They couldn’t be sure what is was, something between a cow and a frog perhaps, it’s face clearly bovine, but it’s leathery skin and splayed back legs those of another creature entirely.

She felt flattened out, two dimensional, as Continue Reading
