This week on What’s On Your BookShelf? I’m thrilled to have Will taking part, Will is a huge horror fan, and I thought seeing as it’s Halloween tomorrow 👻🧟♂️🧛♂️☠️ he was the perfect choice for a spooky post. Will is a relatively new book blogger, but I would recommend you check out his blog at https://hghorror.wordpress.com/. Now over to Will
Hi Will How many bookcases do you have?
I have three bookshelves in my current home, and three more in storage.
Approximately how many books are on your book case?
Roughly 100 books currently.
What genre does your bookcase mainly comprise of?
My books are almost entirely horror.
Which book on your bookcase are you desperate to read?
As a reviewer, I have a decent backlog that I’m very excited to get to, but I would have to say Sean McDonough’s new novel The Class Reunion is what I’m looking forward to most right now.
Which book has been sat on your bookcase the longest and you haven’t yet got around to reading?
I have yet to read any of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. I’m reading through all of his other works in preparation, because a lot of them connect back in some way to the Dark Tower series. I want to be aware of all those easter eggs when I finally make my journey to the Tower.
Which books are you desperate to add to your bookcase over the next few months?
On the small horror side of things, I can’t wait to get my hands on a paperback copy of David Simpson’s newest Zombie Road release, Zombie Road 7. It’s currently only out digitally. As for fine and limited edition releases, I’m so excited to receive the debut book from Letterpress Publications; Stephen King’s Revival.
If you could only keep one book from your bookcase, which one would you choose? And why?
That’s an insanely difficult choice. I think maybe my signed limited edition of Joyland, by Stephen King. It’s probably my favorite of his books. I have my copy in a custom made slipcase from the company 19th Edition.
Last question if you could have one author come to your house to borrow a book who would it be and why?
Looking at my bookshelves, you might think my answer would be Stephen King. But I’m sure he gets tired of meeting his “number one fans.” I’d have to go with Brian James Freeman. He’s the general manager at Cemetery Dance Publications, as well as the founder of his own press, Letterpress Publications. Not to mention, he’s a pretty good author. I’m sure he’d enjoy seeing all of my Cemetery Dance books, as well as my King collection. I’d love to talk with him about his Letterpress Publications venture.
Hello, my name is Will and I’m the founder and lead (only) reviewer at Home Grown Horror Reviews. I am a passionate fan of all things horror, and an avid supporter of our community of authors. I have discovered many wonderful talents that I probably wouldn’t have ever known about had I not been actively looking. My goal is to write and publish reviews that will help spread the word about those authors and works who deserve a little recognition.
My book collection is almost entirely horror. My focus is Stephen King and Cemetery Dance Publications. I have several signed King books, and many special or limited edition King books and other Cemetery Dance books. The thing that makes my shelves unique however is my collection of personally inscribed books. I’m active in several horror groups on Facebook, including a few for horror writers. I love finding new (to me, or new to writing) authors and getting their books signed and personalized to me. This has led to a small but very loved collection of books that mean a lot to me.
