Thanks to Mike Davis, Pete Rawlik, and friends for having me as a guest on Lovecraft eZine Podcast to talk about the Lovecraftian elements of MALINAE with a foray into Jewish horror.
Praise for MALINAE
“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.”
-Midwest Book Review
“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.”
-Andy’s Honest Reviews
“A disturbing story that masterfully weaves a large helping of horror into an already terrifying take on aging and Alzheimer’s.”
“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
Lovecraft eZine on MALINAE
Lovecraft eZine’s Pete Rawlik gave a solid review of MALINAE!
“There are relatively few books in which the elderly function as protagonists, and Schlossberg not only makes you care for the pair of them, but also makes their plight and actions in the face of a personal apocalypse feel perfectly appropriate and natural.
“[A]n incredible book about growing old with the one you love…well-crafted and fine enough to be placed in my collection of cosmic horror…”
