    1. PANDORA is the kind of book King and McCammon and the like used to write in the 80′s, the kind of book that made horror the go-to genre it has become. I have no doubt that there will be endless comparisons to King, as there are with most emerging horror writers, but Parypinski has earned it. This book is well-crafted and planned out, with the kind of scattered-seed style of character introduction favored by the aforementioned legends. Written in a loose 3rd person narrative, PANDORA follows a [...]

    2. Pandora is the story of Maria Vakros, a woman fighting her own demons in order to reclaim control of her life as she and her husband, a teacher by trade, start anew in the small town of Sickle Falls. Leaving behind the big city of Chicago, they buy a quaint old house in the nicer part of town with a beautiful view of the lake, but hiding in the shadows of the basement lies an ancient horror waiting to be unleashed. It has infected the whole town, even causing the previous owners untimely deaths. [...]

    3. Review of PANDORA by Joanna ParypinskiI first became aware of Joanna Parypinski when we shared space in the anthology INDIANA SCIENCE FICTION 2011. I was impressed by her work, so when I heard her first novel was coming out I picked up a copy. I'm glad I did. Joanna has populated her fictional town of Sickle Falls with a number of well-rounded, engaging characters. There's Ben, the good kid who's relentlessly bullied by a trio of miscreants, and Edna, a successful writer whose stories may be sta [...]

    4. I could not put this novel down! It is a well written horror story. It you love this genre, it is a must read. The characters come to life as you follow thier stories to the exciting conclusion. I am glad I opened the box and read this book. Stephan King move over, there is a new author in town!
