Enjoy an out-of-print horror comic book from my own personal collection as I find vintage comics from the 70’s and early 80’s very inspiring.


A DAY BY WILLIAM TREVOR

A Day by William Trevor - In William Trevor’s short story, entitled ‘A Day’, the author successfully immerses the reader in the point-of-view character’s consciousness. We wake with Mrs. Lethwes as she watches her husband sleep, as she goes marketing and stops by the coffee shop. We listen to her chat and eavesdrop on her thoughts. Her nerves deepen, growing more serious, while day turns to night. She is trying to reconcile herself to her husband's affair. ‘A Day’ is featured in William Trevor’s 1996 collection ‘After Rain’. In his own words, Trevor says: “My fiction may, now and again, illuminate aspects of the human condition, but I do not consciously set out to do so.”

THE FAT MAN - The Fat Man, a popular radio show during the 1940s and early 1950s was a detective drama based on characters by Dashiell Hammett.

REVIEW OF MIDWINTER BY MARTIN PHILLIPS

REVIEW OF MIDWINTER BY MARTIN PHILLIPS – “Chad Schimke's tale of an ancient Welsh royal bloodline reads seamlessly and flawlessy, from generation to generation over many hundreds of years. You feel as though you know these ancient people, understand their primitiveness, their relation to, understanding of and worship of nature, of Mother Earth, and their ethereal bond with the blue stone, which, surprisingly, the reader learns is Stonehenge. You feel part of the family, sense how the people actually lived, feel a kinship with the lone pine (I won't wreck it, don't worry) and the savageness of tribal warfare for not simply dominance, but survival. The reader weaves in and out of the consciousness and thoughts of individuals like a waft of smoke or a gentle breeze. It is a story I simply could not stop reading once I'd started. You will, too! (Or Should).
