typicalbooks 22 – Nightmares in the Sky – Stephen King – Booktube Review

Nightmares in the Sky is an essay by Stephen King contained in a wonderful coffee-table book. Within, find gargoyle photos taken by f-stop Fitzgerald. Not sure who truly took the photos as the pen name is so very literary I would guess it is a fellow author or agent. The essay is so very King, and those that enjoy his addressing the Constant Reader will like this addition to their collection. Found this in Pennsylvania in a used store in wonderful condition so thank you to whoever owned this beforehand!

I cover books I have read that have taught me something about my own writing or were printed in an atypical way. Sometimes, I just have something to say about typicalbooks.

Dead Air Ep 109 – Tales From The Hood

Gather under the sluice grate, for the latest Dead Air podcast episode has been mucked off the slab ~ http://ift.tt/2xHMdTR

Welcome to Hell! Motherfuckers! It’s episode 109 of the Dead Air Podcast, where we head back to the 90’s to talk all about the fan-requested film Tales from the Hood!

Three Gang members in search of drugs head over to Simm’s funeral home, where they meet the strange proprietor and would-be drug dealer. Before the final sale can happen though he will lead them through a macabre tour of the recently deceased. Each bizarre death brings with it an even stranger story. A powerful anthology film about race, child-abuse, revenge, murder and ironic justice. A truly underrated classic that in these trying times, feels more relevant than ever.

typicalbooks 21 – 666 by Jay Anson – Booktube Review

For my first YouTube video in a very long time, I picked a nice old book. There are several more planned, another already shot, and I really hope I can keep making review videos of my collection.

Afterchanging gear and software, it’s an experiment all over again and we shall see how the winter goes. Pretty sure I’ll never entirely abandon video, and I’m grateful my subscribers have stuck by all this time!

This goes hand in hand with the paid reviews I’ve been doing here and there, plus some of the reviews I’ve done as an advance copy reader. After never really having the time to make the most of my reading I decided to do what I can to make the time, and I hope it is enjoyable and informative.

666 by Jay Anson is a 1981 horror novel by the same author as The Amityville Horror. This was a posthumous release, and I was very happy to find it in a random used book store.
