Horror Guide Anthology and Sci Fi Blog of a Pre-internet Age

Sorry I missed you all last weekend. It was a holiday weekend (for those of us that celebrate it, at least). So it was a very loaded weekend for me with relatives from out of town--both close ones, such as my parents, and not so close ones, such as long lost cousins, some of who I don’t care to cross paths with on a dark night, or even on a bright day for that matter! So what did we miss? The following . . .

The Release of the Horror Addicts’ Guide to Life

Yes! The Horror Addicts’ Guide to Life released last week! It is now available in print and will be coming to ebook format soon! As I said last time, I have two articles in this anthology of horror and gothic culture. One article is about horror inspired kids’ shows and the other about dark genres in literature. Other articles contributed by fellow writers range from ones on books, movies and music in the horror genre to horror genre-inspired food! There are also articles about horror art, horror fiction writing, goth clothes, and how to throw horror themed parties. The variety is nearly infinite!

So a very diverse group of us writers helped put the anthology together. However, equal credit if not more must go to Emerian Rich and David Watson, both of, who planned and edited it in which editing is no easy job. It’s hard enough for me to edit my own work! Find out more about this far out book at and how to purchase a copy.

The New Blog Review

Also last weekend, I published at a review of a science fiction blog, Galactic Journey. The unique thing about this blog is not so much its emphasis in covering 1950s and ‘60s sci fi, not even its coverage of these two decades’ newly discovered science facts. The really unique thing about Galactic Journey is its manner of covering these topics. The topics are covered as if the blog posts were written during that era! This blog is ideal for any atompunker like yours truly (who is also bits and pieces of other kinds of punkers and –isms of sci fi and fantasy, kind of like a Frankensteinish fan you can say). In fact, this may be an ideal blog for any alternative history fan. So check out more details in my review of it and then check out the blog itself!

I’ll leave you with that for now.

Until next time . . .
