Cogito Ergo Blogo: Writing for Godot

January 21, 2012

1 Comment

by Kev the Vampire: Why am I writing this? Why are you reading it? Where do blogs come from and where are they going to? ‘In the beginning was the Word’, we are told in John 1.1, but the Bible makes no mention whatsoever of the phenomenon of blogging,  even though there are now 156 million […]

On the “death” of Supernatural’s Castiel

January 21, 2012

1 Comment

by Sol Oróstica-Trejo: The CW’s Supernatural has dedicated complete episodes to the fans, showing the series ideas through books and an underground franchise, conventions and an obsessive fangirl working side by side with the Winchesters themselves. Until recently, there were no major troubles among the fans about the writers’ decisions, even as the first three seasons […]

History and the Paranormal: A Working Relationship

January 18, 2012

1 Comment

by Mike Ricksecker: History and the paranormal go hand-in-hand. After all, the lives ghosts had lived on Earth are in the past. Their stories permeate the walls of the locations in which they haunt and appear, at times, in the evidence paranormal investigators pick up in their ghost hunts. So much is forgotten and overlooked […]

In Celebration of the Monster: The History of Horror and the Thing under the Bed

January 14, 2012

2 Comments

by W. Scott Poole: What would a history of American monsters look like? What would it mean to explore monsters as a way to examine the history of America? And wouldn’t this be a strange kind of history, a chronology of fear and desire more than a description of events, ideas and images? These questions […]

November 13, 2011

3 Comments

by Todd Vinson: DC Comic’s Batman: Noël is the collaborative creation of Lee Bermejo (story and art), Barbara Ciardo (color), and Todd Klein (letters). It is also Bermejo’s first solo attempt as a writer and artist. As if this first solo project isn’t challenge enough, in this story, he merges Batman with the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. […]

Tattered Souls 2: A Review

November 12, 2011

2 Comments

by Alex Mcdermott The world of horror writing is a struggle. There are millions of time-worn cliché ideas to fall back on and many writers do just that. Taking a chance means taking a risk and that’s a dangerous idea. Selling the cliché is far easier. Editor Frank Hutton had put together a collection of […]

Enter at Your Own Risk: Old Masters, New Voices (A Review)

October 23, 2011

0 Comments

by Alex Mcdermott: Every Halloween produces a slew of anthologies and this season is no different. On FaceBook and Twitter, I’ve seen zombies, bloody knifes, mutilated corpses, more zombies, demonic leering creatures, and more zombies drift by. Most don’t catch my attention because they are all the same. There’s nothing that stands out. Enter At […]

THE BOOK DIES SCREAMING!

October 7, 2011

0 Comments

by Richard Jay Parker: I’ve noticed that a large percentage of online pieces about books and technology frequently use the phrase ‘Death Of The Book.’  It was probably quite attention-grabbing a couple of years ago but now it seems to have lost its impact and doesn’t guarantee as many hits.  It doesn’t stop people using it though, particularly […]

September 14, 2011

1 Comment

Inspired by Geoff Talbot’s 7 word challenge on Twitter (describe your perfect boss in 7 words), I wrote up 7 words to describe each of the 22 Major Arcana cards of the Tarot. Not content with that, I decided to make a video of them…with the corresponding Tarot cards. The Swords, Wands, Cups and Pentacles […]

By Jill Sunchic: Birds were singing, tree’s swaying softly, it was a beautiful day. And there I stood unable to enjoy it over the glare of my impending doom. So we waited. Neither one of us willing to budge or flex on our opinions of this matter. After the customary eternal wait time the cop […]

Pushing The Bloodsoaked Envelope

August 3, 2011

1 Comment

by Richard Jay Parker Do you try to shock yourself? It was a question I was asked recently and I’m sure they were referring to my writing and not my private life. It’s true that there are some very mild-mannered authors out there who create the most outrageous material. When you read their twisted and […]
