Reviews from Monster Librarian



David Goudsward and Scott Goudsward have once again delivered a fantastic resource for fans and researchers of the fantastic and macabre. As in their previously released Shadows Over New England, Shadows Over Florida takes a similar approach, providing a fun-filled tour of the Sunshine State from a horror perspective, particularly for fans of the horror movie genre. The Goudswards have collected a plethora of arcane knowledge, and are especially adept at shining a light on the independent filmmaking that went on in the State. Shadows over Florida is a “must-have” title for libraries and for anyone who is a fan of horror or who is planning a Florida vacation and eager to visit areas not found in the local tourist attraction guides. - Review by Bob Freeman

David and Scott Goudsward have delivered a fantastic resource for fans and researchers of the fantastic and macabre. Shadows Over New England is an exciting and thrilling map through the frightening landscape of the real and imagined. It’s all here… the Salem Witch Trials, Lizzie Borden, Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, and on and on through the dark heart of America’s genesis. You will spend hours of blissful enjoyment flipping through this book as it takes you through all six states that make up New England… their histories… their legends… and the fiction that captured the underlying horror of this seemingly idyllic region. A must-have title for libraries and for anyone who is a fan of horror or who is looking for some unusual stops for their next trip to New England. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. - Review by Bob Freeman
