Check out this new release by C. Michael Forsyth. It’s one of the best books I’ve read this year!

Best and Worst of Horror

Basic RGBTwo of the most extraordinary men who ever lived clash in the thrilling novel Houdini vs. Rasputin, set in Tsarist Russia.

I’ve wanted to throw myself into anime or a book or into any form of entertainment, because sometimes the made-up worlds are better than the real one we inhabit.
