If you’ve read my last couple of reviews (Virginia Obscura for Popcorn Horror and Memory Lane for Haddonfield Horror) you’d be forgiven for thinking it is my personal mission to give a generous kicking to every micro-budgeted piece of horror fiction flung my way for review.

Not so for this latest piece, the newest chapbook from This is Horror, Stephen Graham Jones‘ The Elvis Room. You’ll be able to find out what I thought about it in a forthcoming review for Popcorn Horror, but for now here’s the PR from This Is Horror.

Think of it as penance for my recent acts of critical savagery.

[I’ve removed someone else’s praise from it, because frankly, its my gaff you should be coming to for all your horror criticism needs.]
