The Winter Orphans by Kristin Beck ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


During WWII the Swiss Red Cross ran homes for French and refugee children. Many of the refugee children are Jewish. Ella Rosenthal and her sister Hanni reside in such a home near the Pyrenees Mountains. They feel as if they have found a safe haven after having fled Belgium where their parents had sent them when it became apparent that Germany would not be safe for Jews. Unfortunately, the Vichy government wants to play nice with the German aggressors and have started rounding up Jewish refugees over the age of 16. Director Rösli Näf feels she must do something to protect her children. Will she go against the directives of the Swiss Red Cross, and risk losing her job, to save these teens?

Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke by Eric LaRocca ~ a Review

by MK French


This volume contains three psychological horror stories by Eric LaRocca, and the title novella was nominated for the Bram Stoker award. The tag line compares him to Clive Barker, Stephen Graham Jones and Caitlín R. Kiernan. While there can be allusions to bloody events, the biggest issue as with any good psychological horror stories is the connection with others and the soft slide deeper into the darkness of a human soul.
