Cavallaro's Cavalcade of Carnage
Tim has got to be one of the nicest guys in the horror community. His social media accounts seem to be active strictly to congratulate other writers on their accomplishments.

I've met him in person, and I must say that the hype is real: Tim is a nice guy.

So, it is with great trepidation that I read his latest novella, Taboo in Four Colors, because I knew that if I didn't like it, I would tell you exactly that no matter how much I'd hate doing so.

Luckily, I don't have to.

The cover had me expecting a hard-boiled detective novella, but what I got was a gothic mystery wrapped in a love letter to EC comics. No spoilers. Read it as soon as you can.

I will always promote his Wasps in the Ice Cream as one of the all-time great coming-of-age novels. I have no problem ranking it up there with the Lansdales and the McCammons. I love it that much.

But Taboo in Four Colors is another solid entry from McGregor, who I'm expecting huge things from.

Grade: B
