Famous Monsters of Filmland # 71 On Sale Now!


















I just received my comp copies of FM # 71 and it's gorgeous.

Aside from my prose re-telling of Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, there's a lot more fun to be had in this issue, as well. The internet doesn't do Joe Jusko's amazing cover painting justice.

Yet another dream of mine fulfilled. This is a wonderful Halloween present--to me!

Happily, I hear the mag is rapidly selling out, so grab yours soon!

Just in time for
Halloween!

THE HALLOWEEN LEGION (Book One) is alive on Kindle NOW!

Print edition coming very soon from Wild Cat Books!

The sleepy rural community of Woodland is caught up in a nightmare from which they cannot escape. Suddenly, mysteriously, a small group of extraordinary visitors arrives to save them, coming from a place where orange, gold, and crimson leaves follow you in the autumn breeze. A place of eternal October, where imagination is magic, monsters are real, and pumpkins are more than they seem.

They know what scares you, and only they can stop it.

Evil—beware, the World’s Weirdest Heroes!

Remembering the Master


















The incomparable Edgar Allan Poe passed away into immortality 162 years ago today. There will never be another like him.

"Nevermore."

THE HALLOWEEN LEGION coming soon!


















My prose novella

This is big deal for me as a writer, as it's the longest, most personal thing I've ever done. It's also the most fun I've ever had at the keyboard.
