Not too long ago I’d pass quickly on any TV-show tie-in novels without a second thought. I either figured them an excuse to cash in on marketing dollars, or viewed them with some cynicism having read a couple of such books from my youth that were just plain dire.

However, given my enjoyment of the TV show Supernatural, and love of the horror novel, a little while back I decided to give Christa Faust’s Coyote’s Kiss a read; I found that book to be quite enjoyable and entertaining. Click here to read more.. »

Supernatural: Coyote’s Kiss by Christa Faust

We’ve all got our own guilty indulgences. Be it that certain bar of chocolate, that possibly expensive bottle of wine, maybe even a favourite cigar – Monte Cristo No. 2 anyone? TV-wise, for me it’s the show Supernatural. I am something of a regular viewer. My wife humorously tolerates my fan-boy attitude to what I consider one of the coolest shows on the small-screen and watches bemused as I sing the virtues of the show, and cheer on as Sam and Dean kick-ass on some demons, ghosts and other things-that-go-bump-in-the-night.

You see, I think Supernatural is awesome. It’s like the only horror-action TV of any worth that’s been on TV for a few years. On the serious-horror front it’s a step-up from Buffy, with some epic story arcs and kick-ass hi-jinks. Alongside high-end production values it’s also got its tongue-in-cheek moments and, as with Whedon’s show, it has a production team who seem to care deeply about it. There’s often also a thumping rock and roll accompaniment to the goings on. Win-win, right? Click here to read more.. »
