Check out the rave reviews for MALINAE, the award-winning cosmic horror novella from Josh Schlossberg (D&T Publishing, 2021)!
“The questions of sanity, insanity, horror, and reality create a compelling first-person narrative…Thoroughly engrossing reading that incorporates twists and turns even avid horror readers won’t see coming.”
“An incredible book about growing old with the one you love…well-crafted and fine enough to be placed in my collection of cosmic horror…”
“[M]asterful blend of horror…I cannot praise Josh Schlossberg enough for this incredible story… reminiscent of when I was reading Ira Levin’s ROSEMARY’S BABY with a hint of the feel that Robert Bloch gave off in PSYCHO. Josh’s writing is eloquent, and completely engrossing!…This is a must read of 2021.”
“Malinae by Josh Schlossberg is a fantastic, Lovecraftian horror novella with a delightfully different protagonist, an elderly man with mobility issues.”
“A disturbing story that masterfully weaves a large helping of horror into an already terrifying take on aging and Alzheimer’s.”
“A meal fit for a king, or perhaps a god of the sea.”
-Books As Meals
“The story is intricate and woven together beautifully. Josh is a master storyteller, and MALINAE is the proof…This is a story that will tug at your heart on many levels. Highly recommended.”
–William Holden, author of JACK and ALL MORTAL FLESH
“Carried along on a dive to terrifying depths where nothing is quite as it seems, MALINAE has everything we could hope for from a story: suspense, horror, sex, and biting humor.”
-JoAnn Chaney, author of WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW and AS LONG AS WE BOTH SHALL LIVE
“Haunting, harrowing, and beautiful, MALINAE is one of those books that sticks with you long after the last chapter. A seaside tale of love and terror, the sunset years have never been more frightening or visceral than in Josh Schlossberg’s deft hands.”
-Matthew Lyons, author of THE NIGHT WILL FIND US
“Fast paced and compelling, MALINAE is a cautionary tale about the dangers of negativity in an already tumultuous world. At its core it’s a love story, surrounded by unspeakable horror.”
-Claire L. Fishback, author of THE BLOOD OF SEVEN
“MALINAE is a thought provoking and horrific ride, one that will reverberate in your memory long after you turn the last page.”
-Gary Robbe, educator and horror writer

Hey, I recognize that “one sentence.”:-) Malinae is awesome!
A fellow author pointed out to me just yesterday that I need to start posting my (full) reviews somewhere other than on Amazon. I didn’t know Amazon might remove reviews if two authors post reviews of each other’s stories. (Which I don’t get. Does the ‘Zon think writers don’t read?) Sigh, I’ll have to go with the flow and be normal and join Goodreads.:-)
Thanks again for the review! Yes, it’s a stupid rule Amazon has, as if authors reading one another’s books is somehow unethical, yet paying Amazon run ads of that same book is totally OK.
