The Wolfman

This is a truly engaging paranormal serial killer mystery with a strong dose of wit, tightly laced with black humor, strong language, gore, and sex. It deviates nicely from typical werewolf fiction, whilst maintaining the monstrous nature of the beast. When it comes to interesting and original concepts, it really can’t get much better than a werewolf hunting down a serial killer.

House of Leaves

House of Leaves is a bit like Marmite. It’s either a brilliant masterpiece in mystery, horror and pushing literary boundaries, or it’s a pretentious, over-complicated piece. Number one, the primary story, is about an extraordinary house. The second is the story of Zampano, and the third is Johnny Truant.
