Review - Black Ambrosia by Elizabeth Engstrom


Today, I'm reviewing 1986's Black Ambrosia by Elizabeth Engstrom. More specifically, it's the Paperbacks from Hell edition by Valancourt Books that has a new introduction by author Grady Hendrix.

Tor Books originally published Black Ambrosia during the horror-craze of the 1980s. After appearing in Grady Hendrix's Paperback from Hell: The Twisted History of '70s and '80s Horror Fiction in 2017, the nearly forgotten title has come back from the grave, thanks to the 2019 reprint.

Review - Paperbacks from Hell

Bullied and feeling like an outcast during all of my high school years in the late '90s, I fell in love with the horror novels. I was already reading R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, and dozen of other YA thrillers by the time I started reading Stephen King novels in junior high. While I was still reading King during high school, I later fell in love with  Anne Rice's erotic vampire tales, John Saul's creepy paperbacks, and Clive Barker's bloody stories.

Sunday Post - Reading To Keep My Sanity!

Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer!

Happy Easter, Everyone!

What Am I Currently Reading?

I did a little bit of reading this past week. I read Star Trek: Picard: The Last Best Hope by Una McCormack. I'm planning on writing my review for it this afternoon. Then I read The Warning by James Patterson & Robison Wells, which is a paperback that's been collecting dust since Christmas. Lastly, a few nights ago, I started reading the nonfiction Paperbacks from Hell by Grady Hendrix. If you're a horror fan, this book is a must-have!
