Mimes by Paul E. CooleyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars

WARNING: This review contains mild spoilers.

If you’ve never read Paul E. Cooley before, this is a great starter for you! It’s a short novelette that showcases what Paul does best, take an everyday guy with an everyday job, then take him on a left turn into weird.

Normally, I don’t give 5 star reviews, particularly for psychological horror. That looms large in my wheelhouse. I cut my teeth on Poe and Lovecraft, after all.

Review: Fearful Symmetry: A Thriller

Fearful Symmetry: A Thriller
Fearful Symmetry: A Thriller by Michael McBride
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

WARNING: This review contains mild spoilers.

There is a great deal to like about this novel. It contains some of the usual techno-thriller ingredients: Nazis, esoteric science, the Yeti, and long, lost Tibet. If you were to judge it by those alone you might well say, “Meh.” However, it’s how these ingredients are mixed that gives this novel its unique flavor.

In 1938 Nazi scientists brave the Himalayas in search of the Master Race. They fail. Or do they? 75 years later the sole survivor puts together small team of four extraordinary scientists to retrace his steps and unlock the secrets of the next phase of human evolution.
