My buddy Jeff Carlson has a new book out, THE FROZEN SKY. It’s published by 47North, which is Amazon’s science fiction imprint. Hence, I’ll be watching his success closely, because Amazon basically dictates the eBook marketplace (hear that, Carlson? I’m watching you … ).Continue Reading →
The awesome Scott E. Weinberg joins the MONSTROSITY crew to give us his sleeper DVD pick. Is JJ Abrams going to bail on STAR TREK to direct the next STAR WARS movie? And you have to check out this monster meat from the soon-to-be-cult-classic flick JOHN DIES AT THE END.

Now that I’m a fancy B-list movie reviewer (I know that makes you hot for me, admit it), I get the opportunity to watch some little-known stuff.
