How I long for the days of 1 degree above zero…



I haven’t been updating my site because I’ve been in Alaska for a family emergency. Look at this crap!



Yes! It’s been on Blu-Ray for a while, but Creepers is now available on Amazon Video-on-Demand and Vimeo!

This horror anthology film contains adaptations of stories by Joe Lansdale, Edgar Allan Poe, Lafcadio Hearn, and me! I wrote the script for the third segment, “Gave Up The Ghost,” which was directed by Gregory Lamberson.

Rent it NOW!!!

Werewolves and Gals in Blue Masks

With the craziness of the Halloween season comes a lack of time for website updates. So I’ve missed a bunch of stuff. But here are a trio of links:

I was interviewed by The Gal in the Blue Mask as part of her 31 Days of Horror. If you don’t want to read an interview with me, there’s PLENTY of other stuff from those 31 days, so check it out.

I did a werewolf roundtable discussion with Ray Garton, Jonathan Janz, and Glenn Rofle, organized by John Everson and moderated by W.D. Gagliani. If you like werewolves, and you know that you do, head on over to Not Now, Mommy’s Reading.

I’ll be at the Spooky Empire convention in Orlando this weekend, which is screening “Chomp” on Saturday as part of their film festival.

Things will sort-of calm down in November. Or WILL they…?

The Horror Show With Brian Keene

Episode 37 of Brian Keene’s podcast The Horror Show is up, He’s had many esteemed guests on his show, but for this episode he dials the prestige back a bit and interviews me. The official description is:

JEFF STRAND – The Horror Show with Brian Keene Ep 37 – The funniest person in horror, Jeff Strand, sits down with Brian and Dave for a serious interview about transitioning to writing full-time, how he met his wife, humor in horror, his work in film, and much more. Plus — The Walking Dead premieres, Jonathan Janz’s monstrous new book deal, Irish rocker Matt Hayward creates the show’s first song parody, and anticipation builds for The X-Files and Ash vs. The Evil Dead.

All 37 episodes of this podcast are absolutely FREE, so I encourage you to download them all and listen to them in a two-day marathon session. Check out the latest episode at the URL below:


Read No More: A Night of Bookishly Scary Tales


This Friday and Saturday night, in Gulfport, Florida, come on out to Read No More. Each room has a short spooky play (okay, mine is a comedy) to get you into the Halloween spirit. Well, if you’re on this website, you’re ALREADY in the Halloween spirit, but you know what I mean.

My evil little contribution stars Hailey Escobar, Christa Jerome, and Jeff Smith, and is directed by Lynne Hansen. The whole event is put together by Tiffany Rizzano of Wordier Than Thou.
