Book Review – The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires

Cover image for The Southern Book Club's guide to slaying vampires : a novel / Grady Hendrix.

By Grady Hendrix.

A true crime – obsessed, bored housewife realises her neighbour is a vampire preying on local children. When the police won’t do anything she recruits her friends from book club to take the monster down. This book is magnificent – it’s like Buffy Summer’s mum was the vampire slayer. And it even captures all the campy horror and gore of 80s and 90s vampire movies.

Graphic Novels Review – The Graveyard Book : Volume 1

Cover image for The graveyard book [graphic novel] : Volume 1 / based on the novel by Neil Gaiman ; adapted by P. Craig Russell ; illustrated by Kevin Nowlan and six others.

By Neil Gaiman & P. Craig Russell

This is an adaptation of Gaiman’s original novel, brought to life by several truly talented artists. The artwork brings to life the whimsy and macabre in equal measures, and makes for a short, sharp and shiny retelling. The story is also told in episodic bites so it’s easy to pick up and put down again – but why would you want to!?
