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?

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 […]

A Review of Willy, by Robert Dunbar

October 7, 2011

3 Comments

by Alex Mcdermott As any of my regular readers know, gore and violence are not my thing. Most horror today, however, is just an excuse for torture, graphic violence, and bloodshed. Every now and then though, an author throws out the Horror 101 handbook and really digs into terror. Robert Dunbar’s Willy is one of those no-rules […]

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 […]

A Glimpse Into Researching for the Make-Believe

July 28, 2011

3 Comments

by Mark D. Evans: My current WIP—of which I’m currently polishing the final draft—is a vampire story like no other. “Yeah, yeah.” “Heard it all before.” “There’s no originality left for vampires.” “Vampires have been done to death.” That’s what you’re thinking, right? Didn’t I tell you I was psychic? And my puns aren’t bad either. […]
