Book Spotlight: Killers and Demons

Now Featuring:



Killers and Demons by A. F. Stewart:

Warning!  Not for the faint of heart!

Craving a little blood or perhaps some horrific death?  Slake your gruesome thirst for vicarious thrills with five chilling stories that go inside the twisted world of serial killers and beyond to the dark, disturbing world of demons.

Creep into the pages to greet terror.
Killers and Demons is a collection of five horror stories where the macabre murderers don’t get caught and evil triumphs.
What happens if you awake, afraid, alone and in complete darkness?  If you find someone wants your heart for Valentine’s, literally?  Or if you come face to face with evil on the dark streets of historic London?  You would end up dead, of course.
Come spend some time with the homicidal and savour their kills, dance with demons as they hunt and watch the blood drip slowly, sweetly from their fingers. 

Killers and Demons will send chills down your spine.

Happy Canada Day

It is time to fire up the barbeque and wave the flag for it is Canada Day.
I’m here to add a little extra Canadiana to the day with a few suggestions for your entertainment, whether you want to have movie night, go nostalgic with some TV on DVD or curl up with a good book:


Movies:
  • One Week:  Joshua Jackson stars in this poignant movie, about a man who discovers he has cancer and embarks on a Canadian road trip.  It’s a touching, quiet film about the country and life.
  • Men with Brooms:  Male bonding, relationships, beavers and curling, what more could you want.  Oh yeah, it stars Paul Gross.
  • Cube: A sci-fi horror film about a group of people trying to escape a cube-shaped prison filled with death traps.
  • Away From Her: A moving film about dealing with Alzheimer disease and the effect it has on a marriage.  Staring Gordon Pinsent and Julie Christie and directed by Sarah Polley.

TV:
  • The Red Green Show:  Watch Red, Harold and the boys as they get into trouble at Possum Lodge and sing the praises of duct tape.
  • Corner Gas:  The quirky life of the citizens of Dog River.
  • The Collector:  Morgan Pym collects souls for the Devil in Vancouver, until he re-works his arrangement to try and save his hapless targets.
  • Da Vinci’s Inquest: A strong crime drama set in the world of the Vancouver City Coroner’s office.
  • Trailer Park Boys:  The raunchy, crazy, beer drinking antics of Bubbles, Ricky and Julian.

Books:
  • The Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay: A three book fantasy masterpiece (note: while I prefer the Sailing to Sarantium/Lord of Emperors epic, The Fionavar Tapestry is set, at least in part, in Canada).
  • No Great Mischief by Alistair MacLeod: A wonderful, emotional saga of one family.
