A New Short Story: “The Story Of My First Kiss.”

It’s still June, but the July issue of The Horror Zine is up, and it includes “The Story Of My First Kiss.” Is this a romantic tale, or does the first line include a reference to a severed head? You’ll have to click HERE to find out. (It’s free!)

Watch The Stokers LIVE!

Let’s face it, there are really only two options for Saturday night:

1. Be at the Bram Stoker Awards banquet.

2. Sit at home, sadly wishing that you were at the Bram Stoker Awards banquet.

If it’s #2, I can ease some of your pain! The awards banquet (with me as Master of Ceremonies) will be available live on the very internet that you’re using to read this! The fun starts at approximately 9:30 PM EST on Saturday, June 18.





The Gleefully Macabre Podcast: Episode 3!

Yes, it’s time for another exciting (and free, of course) episode of Dread Media Presents: Gleefully Macabre, my mini-podcast! In this episode, I discuss the fact that the episode is really late, and quickly review Hobo With A Shotgun, Sugar Hill, and Enter the Dragon.

Streamin’ Stokers

If you’re not going to be at the Bram Stoker Awards weekend, and you were feeling kind of sad, now you can feel slightly less sad! The awards banquet will be streamed LIVE right here on the internet! Will I succumb to tears if Dweller doesn’t win? Will the audience rush the stage with torches and pitchforks if any of my Master of Ceremonies jokes bomb?

There’s not a link available yet, but the awards show will begin around 9:00 PM EST on Saturday the 18th. Keep watching this space.


It’s (Almost) Stoker Time!

Next week I’ll be in Long Island, New York for the Bram Stoker Awards. Here’s where you can find me:

THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 7:00 – 10:00 PM: Horror Writers Book Signing Extravaganza! A mass signing with gobs and gobs of horror authors…and it’s open to the public! If you’re within seven states of New York you owe it to yourself to come over for this.

SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 12:30 – 2:30 PM. Writers Workshop of Horror LIVE. Michael Knost, Lisa Morton, F. Paul Wilson, and I will each give a half-hour presentation based on our chapter in Writers Workshop of Horror. I will be talking about adding comic relief to your horror fiction.

SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 3:00 – 4:00 PM. The launch party for Butcher Knives & Body Counts, a collection of essays about slasher flicks, edited by Vince Liaguno and published by Dark Scribe Press. I’ve got an essay in there about The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original) and Mother’s Day (also the original).

SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 9:00 – 11:00 PM: The Bram Stoker Awards banquet! Will Dweller win for Superior Achievement in a Novel? No, probably not, but I’ll be Master of Ceremonies, so I’ll get to go up on stage more times than ANYBODY ELSE!!! The tuxedo has been dry cleaned, I’m scheduled for a haircut on Monday…I’m good to go, baby!

The rest of the weekend, I’ll mostly be wandering around, looking lost.

Be there.

Devil Without a Cause

Rarely a day goes by when I don’t hear somebody say “You know what’s wrong with your damn site? Not enough rock and roll videos! What’s the matter…are you SQUARE?!?”

Well, you guys are right. This site needs more hard rockin’ and hot guys. So here’s the trailer to Terri Garey’s new novel Devil Without a Cause, set to music by The 69 Eyes. Crank it.

Coming next summer…
