Anyone who knows me knows that October is my favorite month. I'm a Halloween fiend!
In honor of All Hallows' Eve, I present to you a list of scary books I recommend for the season (in no particular order):
1. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson
2. The Shining by Stephen King
3. Ghost Story by Peter Straub
4. Dark Companions by Ramsey Campbell
5. Salem's Lot by Stephen King
6. The Other by Thomas Tryon
7. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Also try the collected works of Ray Bradbury, Harlan Ellison, Edgar Allan Poe, and H.P. Lovecraft.
Check out The Year's Best Horror Stories edited by Karl Edward Wagner (1980-1994).
My story "Two Spells" appears in a special edition of Weirdbook this month. It's the tale of two granny witches and a coal miner in early 20th-century Appalachia.
Some authors this magazine has published in the course of its history: Stephen King, Ramsey Campbell, Joe Lansdale, Robert E. Howard, Joseph Payne Brennan, L. Sprague de Camp, Briam Lumley, Dennis Etchison, Tanith Lee, Steve Rasnic Tem, and artist J.K. Potter.
I hope you'll check it out at Amazon or Wildside Press!
I'm kinda over the moon right now!
I just learned that one of my short stories will be published in a magazine that has featured the work of STEPHEN KING and RAMSEY CAMPBELL, my two favorite horror authors.
This award-winning magazine, which has been around since the sixties, has published other well-known horror and fantasy heavy hitters I admire. :)
I believe the publication date will be October, but don't have any other details to share right now.
