Movie Review: Hellboy 2

By Stanley Gray / August 18, 2018

The Prince is back. And he wants revenge. No, this isn’t some Nigerian scam. This is one man’s critique of Hellboy 2, a mid-2000’s sequel to the cult classic eponymous movie, Hellboy. Often cinematically considered as one of the standards for urban fantasy, this franchise raked in barges full of cash on its way to […]


International Urban Legends: Madagascar

By Stanley Gray / August 17, 2018

A monster lurks in the heart of the Malagasy jungle. As the mists hiss and rise into swirling masses, they conceal a terrible entity. A cryptid that feeds on human flesh. It is hundreds of years old. It’s story has been carried throughout the annals of history. It is likely one can read the story […]


International Urban Legends: Switzerland

By Richard Paolinelli / August 16, 2018

Today we head into Switzerland – hey it took a while to work our way through the Alps – and check out this country’s legends. Sorry, no chocolate-covered sweet legends to be found here. The Devil’s Rock Apparently, you can’t trust the Europeans, especially if your Lucifer. Recall our stopover in France where we encountered […]


International Urban Legends: Italy

By Richard Paolinelli / August 10, 2018

Today we stop for a pleasant weekend in Italy, the homeland of my people! If you find yourself in Lucca – in northern Italy’s Tuscany region – go find an area filled with olive trees. Chances are, you’ve found the family’s old estate. Say hello for me. But Italy isn’t just about art, the Vatican, […]


International Urban Legends: France

By Richard Paolinelli / August 9, 2018

Today we arrive in France. A country filled with fine wine, glorious art a couple of awesome urban legends. Pont du Diable The abbeys of Aniana and Gellone decided to build a bridge over the Herault River. Only problem was, every night the Devil would show up. And then the Devil would wreck all of the […]


International Urban Legends: Spain

By Richard Paolinelli / August 8, 2018

We travel to Spain today in search of urban legends and… wait a second… we have breaking news! “Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead!” (I’m sorry. I just had to. For those born after 1975, see Chase, Chevy and Live, Saturday Night.) La Chica de la Curva The Girl On The Curve comes in as the […]


International Urban Legends: Portugal

By Richard Paolinelli / August 7, 2018

We have set sail for warmer waters and find ourselves in Portugal. What follows are three urban legends that, while lacking in the spooky department, are quite interesting. The Seven Cities’ Lagoons In a faraway time, near the Sete Cidades parish, there was once a kingdom. Antilia was said to be the most beautiful princess […]


International Urban Legends: Greenland

By Richard Paolinelli / August 6, 2018

We head for Greenland today. A land filled with wolves that howl in the night…or was that one of the many ghosts that haunt the place so much that most residents – not that a whole lot of people live there to begin with – sleep with their lights on. A land where the cemetery […]

The Darby Shaw Chronicles by Liberty Spiedel

By Hawkings Austin / August 3, 2018

So, I decided on a change of pace the last few weeks and only got back into Urban Fantasy after I’d finished my own novel. I was recommended the Darby Shaw Chronicles by a good friend of mine. They looked like a nice superhero story, so I decided to see how they were. Superhero Police […]
