Review: The Boogeyman’s Intern by Matt Betts

Disclaimer: The author is a friend, and I reviewed this novel as part of the publication process. I look forward to purchasing a hardcopy version of my own.

Cover Reveal: UNDERWATER FISTFIGHT by Matt Betts

My fellow Dog Star Books author, Matt Betts, is betraying his speculative fiction roots by writing for the parent company of our imprint: Raw Dog Screaming Press. The audacity! The outrage! He’s publishing a book of…pirate poetry. Like, actual pirates. With parrots and peg legs. “Poet. Pirate. It’s all the same really. They both pillage, […]

Review: INDELIBLE INK by Matt Betts

Disclaimer: Betts is a fellow Dog Star Books author and I consider him a friend. However, I purchased a copy of this novel for full price. Comparing INDELIBLE INK to Matt Betts’ first novel, the steampunk/zombie/giant monster/Weird West extravaganza ODD MEN OUT, does both books a disservice.  Instead, INDELIBLE INK is a creature all its […]
