Signal Boost: Hellbender Media

A bit more than a year ago, a very good friend of mine, edwardmartiniii, started a project to write a new horror short story every week for a year. The result appeared in a blog he called Tales from the Blinkspace.

He is, and I say this without reservation, one of the best horror writers I've ever read. His stories are quirky, unpredictable, occasionally Lovecraftian in feel if not in subject, and very often brilliant. Quite a few of them made me think, one of them gave me nightmares, and I even appear in one as a character (no, I won't say which one, you'll have to find it yourself).

And now it's a book.



I highly, highly recommend this book for anyone who's a fan of quality short stories. You can see more about it on his Web site, Hellbender Media, here or find the book on Amazon here.

Wow!
Thank you! I'm... I'm really touched!

I might have to use you in another story after such very nice words...

...assuming you still feel that's a compliment.

Hm, "Bugs" got under your skin, huh? Awesome!

Well, not all are scary. Some are... provocative. "True Love" comes to mind as an example. A lot of people who don't like horror seem to like "Watching," too.

Ah yes, well, that's Pet Sematary for you.

That would be like watching "Orgazmo" and deciding that Mormons make the best porn.
