Reviews of Horror, Post Apocalyptic Fiction, Dark Fiction, Thrillers and Science Fiction

About The Scary Reviews

Welcome to The Scary Reviews! I started this site because I’ve always been a huge horror fan and I wanted to have a place to post my favorite horror book reviews. I’ve been a horror fan since Friday the 13th and Halloween hit the screen’s. I saw them both and was far too young for these movies but I loved them and I’ve loved horror movies ever since. The first horror book I read was a book with a monkey on the front holding cymbals, this turned out to be Skeleton Crew by Stephen King. Since that day I’ve read every King book and now read a wide variety of horror, dark fiction and post apocalyptic books. I’ve really grown to love Apocalyptic fiction which I think is now my favorite genre and I find it fascinating the various ways a writer will “end” the world.

Before discovering the world of horror my first love was Fantasy books. When I was a kid I found this great book The Hobbit and then I read The Lord of the Rings and was hooked. As a kid who love the RPG world it felt like I was home and I read many other fantasy books, the titles and authors I’ve long since forgot. I really also enjoy sci-fi books especially when it has some horror and thriller elements mixed in. The other worlds and technology are a real draw for me and I’m kinda a technology nut so I love to see what may be reality someday. I usually like to give a book 20-50 pages (depending on the books length) before deciding if it’s worth finishing. If it hasn’t grabbed me by then it probably won’t, but I’ve been wrong before and probably will again.

As with all the fellow bloggers I know, I don’t receive compensation for reviews. I do however have the pleasure of receiving many of the books from authors/publishers to review at not cost. All of the opinions in my reviews are my own, this is true whether I purchased the book or if it was free. If you are considering purchasing any of the books you read about here, please click the link provided in the review. This will provide a small fee from Amazon to help keep this site going.

  1. Hello!

    I wonder if I might convince you to run a feature for horror author Will Macmillan Jones? He has a blog tour scheduled: The event is set to commence on May 8th with the last posting day of May 12th. Perhaps you may even be interested in joining the tour yourself and reviewing one of his books, he has four to choose from?
    Tour sign up:

    Rukia Publishing is an online book promotions and small press publishing company and at this moment we are working with the author to help market his series, The Mister Jones Mysteries. Please take a look at Will’s book showcase and author page on Rukia to learn more here, including the frst chapter of every book in the Mister Jones Mysteries:

  2. Hi David

    I’ve recently self-published via Pronoun. My book is Apocalyptic with elements of horror throughout.
    I’m looking for reviews to help create some buzz around the title.

    Here’s the Amazon link (which has a synopsis).

    Thanks in advance!



  3. Hi. My name is Henry. I work for Crime Wave Press, though represent other authors, as well. I found your site while searching for reputable blogs to feature our authors on.

    Please consider Chris Roy, author of two crime thriller trilogies and numerous short stories. His dark fiction published by Near to the Knuckle would be a good fit for Scary Reviews. “Marsh Madness” is his debut for NTTK, 1,500 words of dark fiction.

    If you are interested in featuring/reviewing Chris’ work, please also considered an interview or guest post. I can arrange.
