Chasing the Boogeyman: Richard Chizmar Births A New Genre

Chasing the Boogeyman: Richard Chizmar Births A New Genre

Chasing the Boogeyman: Richard Chizmar births a new genre, and though many great authors have and continue to work off of and dwell in the horror-crime-thriller realm, this novel is wonderfully different. Rumor has it that the Richard’s small town serial killer may be something other than human. But that just adds to the menace, and the reality is such that this tale is...

Ania Ahlborn’s The Devil Crept In is horrifyingly real and frightening enough to make readers avoid rural Oregon, or woods in general, for that matter.

The Devil Crept In centers around Stevie, one of the best...

What Is The Forgotten Fiction All About?

 

P.S.

If You Want To Know A Little More About How The Forgotten Fiction Book Reviews Magazine Is Different & Our Mission . . .

We are really trying to achieve two main goals here at The Forgotten Fiction Book Reviews:

  1. To bolster every author who puts out a work of fiction long after the initial buzz that accompanied its release and to bolster small press and fine press publishers that make works of art out of the books we love. For newer books, the 60+ day thin is something that is usually left to an expensive public relations manager or company and even with all of their powers of marketing / PR are limited in where they can place the book months after its launch. We also focus on limited edition and small press publications, like Hard Case Crime and Suntup Editions, that are also reviewed for their physical beauty, as well as the work’s literary art and often illustrations, so long as the initial work has been out 60 days.
  2. We love books of fiction and as readers we have too little time to read ALL of the books that fall onto our tentative To-Read List. The Forgotten Fiction hopes that with our Yea or Nay stamp, we can definitively give our unbiased opinion to you as a recommendation to aid your decision to move a book from The Stack and onto, or off of, your Must-Read List. Goodreads is fantastic, we practically live in it, but at TFF we feel that we supplement Goodreads in three vital areas. We have professional writers giving an in-depth review of each work of fiction, and the reviewers at TFF work hard to earn your trust; we also do not bother with ratings, because we give you a clear answer as to whether we think you should read the book or not; and for our small press book reviews, we review the myriad physical aspects that make up the finer editions of the written works.
