Horror Hostess of Dark Literature

Horror author and editor, Jeani Rector

Sorry I missed you people last week. I was a little more busy than usual it being the Easter weekend and all that.

Unfortunately I haven't gotten a chance to finish my cover for my short story collection. I'm just barely getting to the final concept sketch. I'll probably post that here by next week if I haven't finished the final product yet.

I have parts one and two of an interview out at with a really neat author from my home area of Sacramento, California. Her name is Jeani Rector. She writes horror and is the editor of an online horror fiction magazine, The Horror Zine.  The zine is world known and contains stories by both new and established writers.  And it's all for free! Therefore no subscription required.

I like to think of Ms. Rector as the "Elvira" of horror literature. The only difference between Jeani and Elvira other than the media they specialize in is that Jeani "hosts" good fiction and so fiction that is much closer to A rated movies than the B rated ones Elvira has shown.  Don't get me wrong though! I'm a big fan of B-rated horror and sci fi. However, when it comes to reading, I like to make better use of my time reading quality fiction. So I suggest you not only check out my article on Jeani Rector but that you check out her zine too.

I'll leave you with that for now.

Until next time . . .
