I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. I read the first of Nick Clausen’s short story collections and thought they were clever. They were not over the top blood and guts though. I don’t think this one would appeal to me in the same way. Nice review, Olga.

    1. Olga Nunez Miret says:

      Thanks, Robbie. I must admit gore doesn’t bother me if the story is good. There is a touch of the classic zombie in this story and I get the feeling the author loves old horror stories and folk tales. I have the second installment of the series on my list, so I should be able to report soon. Have a great week, Robbie!

  2. I bought Human Flesh based on reading about it here. To be honest, I thought it was derivative, too familiar, and it didn’t scare me at all. I don’t think I will be exploring his zombie story. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I’m sorry Human Flesh disappointed you. I don’t think this one would be for you either. All the best.

      1. No problem, Olga. I did like the sound of it, and it was well-written in that blog/message-style. It just didn’t scare me. 🙂

        1. No, I am difficult to scare as well, so I try to make sure I give all readers an idea about what they might find, because it takes a fair bit to scare me but some people don’t like anything that sounds like horror at all. I get the sense that the author likes classic horror, as I was telling Robbie, and he writes a lot for the YA market, so it’s not a bad choice for readers who might not be so familiar with the genre. And he does write well, as you say. I’m not sure if you’ve read any of Brian Moreland’s novels. I noticed he had a release recently, and I have liked the two novels I’ve read of his (and I must check. I think I might have another one). But I might combine the next review of the series with another horror novella I’m very curious about, as I do like the author as well.

  3. I agree, Olga — a great read for Halloween. Thanks for your review. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thank you, Teagan. It’s an uncomplicated fast read. Now I must read day two, so see what happens next! Big hugs!
