Basement Blues by J H Sked review
Basement Blues by J H Sked has 3 short stories: Basement Blues, Dim, and Pushing Janey. Dim and Pushing Janey both fit into the horror/thriller genres, while Basement Blues is a paranormal detective story with a good bit of comedy mixed in. Both Dim and Pushing Janey feature men who are haunted by their pasts. In Dim a man is terrified by the memory of what happened to him while serving overseas. Pushing Janey is a bit too hard to explain without giving something away.
The title story Basement Blues is a short intro into a whole new series that J H will be starting sometime fairly soon. I very much enjoyed the story of the strange group of detectives and their unusual client. This is yet another series from J H Sked that I will be looking forward to.
I'll be honest the horror stories aren't my normal thing, but I really really enjoyed Basement Blues. J H will be doing a guest blog here on 7/2/11 talking about some of her inspirations and what we can expect to see coming up. Be sure to check back!
