Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark trilogy

scary stories tril

As much as I love Goosebumps , the original Scary Stories trilogy gave me and a bunch of kids nightmares in the 90’s and early 2000’s. I’m saying this right now, if you got younger kids and want to spook them out old school this Halloween, these book have you covered. With some surprisingly grisly tales throughout Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones and truly nightmarish artwork throughout. I admit, the kid in me went spastic when I saw the trailers for the movie and saw the ghouls and stories brought to life. Some tales that stuck out to me was the story of the girl with the terrible zit, the “wonderful” sausage, and a wedding game gone wrong. As an adult, I love to bring the treasury out which contains the trilogy and enjoy a good horror tale or 2 before bed. These books are a must read for horror fans of all ages and a fun thing that needs to be shared with the younger generations. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

The “Actual” Tale of Buggy the Bug

buggy

We come to the final entry (so far) of Billy Kraser’s epic saga of intrigue, satire and dark secrets…ok, screw the pretenses. Buggy the Bug is about a bug that does bug stuff and may or may not be a surgeon in Cuba- I’m not allowed to say. The writer of such new age short humor stories as Sticks:A tool in Time , Sandwich?: the Ultimate Inquisition and the heart stopping read Plenty of Cones: Universal Utilities comes the last entry of his Earth’s Instruments Saga before his debut book coming next year. As I’ve said during all this young writer’s reviews, his humor isn’t for everyone but it’s a simple, fun quick read worth checking out- Amazon link below with the link to his GoFundMe. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

My first ever book reading live via Facebook 9/19/19

9/19/19 was the 17th birthday for my unfinished book, Pinstriker (Ps  for short). I started when I was 11- I’m 28 now, almost 29. I faced my fears and shared a portion with my friends on FB and it was a big success. Savior agreed I should try sharing it with all of you because, by doing this not only has it boosted my morale but also gave me faith my work can be appreciated when it’s finally complete. So sit back and enjoy my first ever reading and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Sandwich?: the Ultimate Inquisition

sandwich

Here we come to another bone chilling look into the human mind full of twists, turns, and melodrama…oh and sandwiches. People like sandwiches.

Once again Billy Kraser, author of such short humor books as Sticks:A tool in Time , Stones: The Eternal Instrument , and Plenty of Cones: Universal Utilities , gives us another quick read sure for a few good laughs because, well, you just sat down and read a book pondering about the nature of sandwiches and that is some absurd shit. As I’ve said for the other books in this series, the humor isn’t for everyone and many will call it dumb but I always enjoy a good laugh so I recommend giving it a read and supporting a new author by dropping a link to this book and Billy’s GoFundMe for his new project. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Plenty of Cones: Universal Utilities

We come to the thrilling end of Billy Kraser’s “Earth’s Instruments” trilogy and what mind blowing climx do we have to look forward to from the groundbreaking author of Sticks:A tool in Time and Stones: The Eternal Instrument . Will there be an epic battle for the fate of the universe? Will there be betrayal, murder, or the definitive answer to a love triangle?

The answer is…cones.

Yes, the final installment of this trilogy involves cones in our everyday life; my favorite cone is definitely a waffle cone, mm. As the rest of the series goes, it’s a fun, absurd, quick read that will make you laugh because..well it’s pretty insane to say you read a series about sticks, stones, and plenty of cones.  It’s worth a read as is the rest of the series and it’s well worth a read.

As I did in my review for Stones, I’m also posting a link for Billy’s GoFundMe for his new project. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Stones: The Eternal Instrument

stones

Here we get book two of Billy Kraser’s “Earth’s Instruments” trilogy, the first being Sticks:A tool in Time . Once again, we get a brief but hilariously absurd look at stones, things we pretty much have been in contact with since we were born. There’s nothing informational here and you won’t learn any new facts but I found myself once again laughing that the book exists as the author intended. While the humor isn’t for everyone, some people will get a good laugh at a decent price and I do recommend checking it out on Amazon.

Also, I just want to take a second to put Billy’s Go Fund Me link below. Besides being a humor writer, Billy Kraser is also a friend and supporter of Saviorgaming and is raising money for his new project so some help would always be appreciated. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

This is What you Want, This is What you Get

want get

First of all, I want to give a shout out to the author of this book, Jim Scheers, who I had the pleasure of meeting in person at the Weird and Wired Bazaar in Scranton a couple of months ago. Thank you for the advice and reassurance.

It’s the 1980’s and the punk scene is alive and kicking with loud, wild shows. For  nineteen year old Nick Leblanche these shows keep him sane from a cold life in suburban hell with his boring, nagging parents and his tedious office job full of gossiping idiots and pressure to stay there and rot. The music gives him a soul. At one of these shows he meet a quiet, sad looking girl named Victoria and from the on things start changing as the scene itself; the shows begin turning out of control violent as more and more skinheads begin turning up, making mosh pits into full fledged riots. Can Nick find himself amongst the chaos of his new friends and the scene he loves?

I have to admit, I was surprised how much I found myself reflecting back to my own age 19 and relating to Nick, growing up in suburbia and loving neu-metal myself. There is a lot of great imagery in the book and was very easy to put myself in the story. The story flows really well for the most part but I found a couple times in the second act where it slowed a bit but to no damning extent. One of the only minor complaints I have is that I wished there was something more extreme to end the second act to give the story a little bit more of a impact. All in all, it’s a really cool look at the 80’s punk scene and a good book I’d recommend. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
