Literary Matters: It’s Been a Nasty Winter

For some of us, at least. Fortunately, some hardy souls have managed to defy the elements and send in some new reviews, so let’s take a look.

First, Death’s Apprentice from K. W. Jeter and Gareth Jefferson Jones, featuring, among other things, a killer for hire to works for the Devil.

Next up, from steampunk legend James P. Blaylock (it says so, right on the cover), Homunculus, about — well, maybe you should read the review.

And from steampunk to dark fantasy, with Kelley Amstrong’s Brazen, about a werewolf who finds himself.

Our next offering is from Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, and, as might be expected, it’s more than a little horrible — in genre, that is. Take a look at our reaction to Father Gaetano’s Puppet Catechism.

And finally for today, a book that asks a question we’ve all entertained at some point: if you had it to do over. . . ? Checkout Alma Alexander’s 2012: Midnight at Spanish Gardens.

That’s it for today, but I’m sure there will be more coming in as more of our contributors thaw out — or, for those south of the Equator, cool down.

Next time.
