Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

J. Malcolm StewartWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest? 

Jason Malcolm Stewart: Fiction Author, Journalist, Interviewer, Horror Film Fan, Horror Fan Culture Enthusiast, etc.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?

I have three pieces in the collection: You Might be a Monster Lover If…, Black Zombie: Hollywood and the 80s Voodoo Revival and Sounds of Horror in Black American Music.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?
Wow, I’m a big horror head like we all are, so I tend to order from the buffet line. If pushed, I am an aficionado of classic monsters like Frankenstein, Dracula, werewolf lore… Anything that Universal would have made a movie about in the 30s.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?
Oooof, haven’t heard of anything immediate upcoming in 2022 that has sparked the horror flame. But that just means something is unexpectedly coming down the pike that will be awesome that I don’t know about yet!

Submission Call! Manor of Frights

Our 2023 Anthology announcement:

Manor of Frights

nathan-mcdine-Sz2UlMzTv4I-unsplashImagine a Victorian house where every room is cursed with a frightful existence. Are monsters in the halls? Ghosts left to fester in the library? Or are the rooms themselves enchanted with malevolent energy? What was summoned long ago and what doorways were left open? Manor of Frights will be a collection of tales all set in different rooms of the same house.

 

Stories MUST follow these guidelines: 

  1. MUST be in 3rd person. No 1st person stories will be considered.
  2. The Manor of Frights was built in 1880. So, stories can take place between 1880-1980. Keep this in mind when writing. Is the house new in your era? Run down? Or refurbished? Has there been a fire? A flood? Are you writing about the homeowner? A guest staying at a BnB? Or maybe… You are writing about the architect renovating the place?
  3. Choose a room and write a horror story that takes place in it. 13 rooms will be picked from the submissions. Choose wisely. Be unique. You can write about the normal rooms in a house like bedrooms, bathrooms, or the kitchen, but some other ideas for rooms are: attic, conservatory, library, basement, study, billiard room, cellar, hall, parlor, boudoir, dining room, den, foyer, living room, nursery, dinette, hearth room, scullery, kit room, linen closet, landing, rotunda, nook, covered porch, widow’s walk, or maybe you have an idea of your own.  
  4. The story must have an overwhelming sense of menace and dread. The KIND of horror is open to you. Is there a monster inside? Does it connect to a demon world? Has it been cursed? Is it haunted? Do vampires reside in the home? Scare us. Entertain us.

LBGTQ and POC stories/writers are encouraged to enter. Sensual or passionate stories are acceptable but we don’t want erotica or sexually-based stories. No rape. The editor likes HORROR. Be careful of sci-fi creatures or anything that sways sci-fi or fantasy. She’s not a fan of superheroes or hunters.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Priscilla Bettis

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

priscillaWhen I was a kid in elementary school, I dutifully read my English assignments, but they bored me. By age ten, I had grown tired of sappy characters and too pointed moral lessons. Then I snuck The Exorcist from my parents’ den.

The Exorcist scared the crap out of me even though I didn’t understand parts of it. But the visceral feelings I got were the same as when real life horrors occurred in the grownup world around me. I felt understood by the genre. In turn, I grasped how powerful dark literature could be.

I’ve been a horror addict ever since. Dark fantasy, dark poetry, Gothic, literary, creature-feature, I love them all.

Nowadays, I enjoy writing horror as well as reading it. It gives me a sense of control in an out-of-control world. After all, I can’t stop evil from running amok, but I can always close a book or put down a pen.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Selah Janel

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

selah author shot dlWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest?

My name is Selah Janel and I have a few areas of interest. I write horror fiction, I review horror books (with a soft spot for horror comics and manga), and for years I helped design and build costumes for amusement park haunted events.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?
My work is about the weird things I’ve created that have a horror vibe, whether they were costumes in my professional work or my own experimentation. I talk about what led me down that road and my processes behind several pieces I’ve made, as well as the trials and errors those involved.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

I have a big soft spot for vampires, the paranormal, and cosmic horror. I also lean into haunted events in entertainment, the ‘look’ of horror in terms of production design because of my past work.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre? 

Every day it seems like I’m discovering more and more, whether it’s new projects or old. I’ve gotten back into reading horror comics and have discovered some amazing titles, and there have been some incredible (and unusual books released in the past few years). At the moment I’m just excited about seeing which directions the genre is going to go in the next few years.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Loren Rhoads

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

lorenWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest?
I’m Loren Rhoads. I’m an author, editor, and cemetery expert.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?
I’ve got 3 pieces in HAGL2. One has all my author tricks for writing when the words won’t come. One is about working with horror authors when I was editing Morbid Curiosity magazine. The third one is about Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh, Scotland. It’s considered the most haunted cemetery in the world.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?
Wow, that’s hard! I guess I should say cemeteries, since I wrote 199 Cemeteries to See Before You Die. For as much time as I’ve spent in cemeteries, I haven’t had too many spooky experiences in them. I have smelled death, found an enormous snakeskin in the grass, and worried that I was being stalked by a mountain lion at one point, so I’ve been thoroughly scared in them.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre? 

I’m really excited about the new Interview with the Vampire series. I fell in love with that book when I was in high school. If they do the series right, it should have several cemeteries in it!

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Geneve Flynn

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

Geneve Flynn-Author-EditorI became a horror addict when I read Stephen King’s It as a teenager. That book reached into my brain and turned all the dials up to ten. I couldn’t get enough horror after that. 

I wrote my article, “What’s Your Lens?,” in response to the call-out for content for the Asian Horror Month on the HorrorAddicts site. As an editor, you have to be aware of your own perspectives and preferences, and how that might shape your response to a manuscript. One way to become aware of the lens you view the world through is to read widely.

What encourages me to keep creating? I love having written. I love the alchemy of writing. You might overhear a snatch of strange conversation, read a weird fact, meet an intriguing person, have a bizarre and frightening dream, discover an odd object, and all of that makes its way into a story. All those ingredients come together in your brain cauldron and out comes something magical that’s more than the sum of its parts. That’s the best feeling.

I also write to see myself in stories. Publishing hasn’t been that diverse historically. It’s a sweet thrill to read a story where you don’t have to perform mental calisthenics to be the main character.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Carrie Sessarego

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

carrieWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest?

My name is Carrie Sessarego, and I am fascinated with horror from two directions – the intersection of horror and historical social movements and issues, that I explore by analyzing classic Regency and Victorian horror, and also horror as a means of liberation for contemporary female authors as well as female filmmakers.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?

My essay shares some fun facts about Shirley Jackson, an author who distilled female rage so beautifully. I’m especially drawn to her dry humor, her matter-of-fact voice even when describing terrible things, and the detail with which she depicts lives of women who are constrained by their gender.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

I like gothic horror and Lovecraftian horror, but I’d say my favorite horror stories are ones in which women and other marginalized groups take over the narrative by subverting genre expectations (and by beating the bad guy!). I also like horror comedy and am currently enjoying What We Do in the Shadows.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre? 

I’m so excited about the upcoming movie Renfield and by the upcoming movie Nope!

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Rena Mason

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

renaThe need for more mainstream, diverse horror in all mediums is what inspires me to continue creating the most. I’d also like to see more BIPOC and LGBTQ horror with women at the helm either writing or directing or both. Over the years, I’ve learned that they’re out there, it’s just that sometimes I’d have to seek them out or “stumble” upon them. A few I’ve discovered from their films and follow are: Madhuri Shekar Evil Eye, Karyn Kusama—The Invitation, Issa López—Tigers are Not Afraid, Mattie Do—Chanthaly and Dearest Sister, and Karen Lam—Evangeline. There are too many horror/dark fiction authors and poets to list, and I know that with my recent undertaking of co-editing an anthology of diverse fiction and voices, I’ve found many more. Ellen Datlow, who I’ve been reading since she was an editor for OMNI magazine, has an amazing talent for discovering and publishing new and diverse voices with excellent stories to tell. You can read those stories in her anthologies and at Tor.com, a publisher with a history of producing great work by authors from a multitude of backgrounds. 

In my opinion, diverse horror from diverse authors has improved and become somewhat more mainstream in the last decade, but I’ll always want more. I’d love the names of the writers behind those stories to be more known and their work discussed to a greater extent. 

Although the majority of my stories have Asian main characters, the evolution of my delving deeper into my own heritage was brought about after discussions borne from the promotion for Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women edited by Lee Murray and Geneve Flynn. In the virtual “green room” before panels, we would all discuss our works in progress, and future ideas, and how our stories inspired one another to venture into other aspects of our varied cultures. It has been an amazing experience and journey, and I love that it continues to grow with more work and the inclusion of more authors. We’ve always raised each other up, and now we’ve become a chorus. Our voices continue to rise, and we will not be kept silent.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with M.D. Neu

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

MDNeuWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest?
Hello, I’m M.D. Neu. I’m a Paranormal and Urban Fantasy author. I grew up on Stephen King’s books and I fell in love. There is nothing better then a creepy story, told right. I also, enjoy Alfred Hitchcock movies; The Birds and Psycho are my two favorites, but Rear Window is up there as well. As a writer I want my of body work to stand up to these masters of horror and psychological thrillers, maybe someday.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?
I provided an article for Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 titled, When Did you know? It’s a personal piece about my coming out as a gay man. We all have different stories and lives to share and I wanted to offer up mine for folks to learn from and hopefully appreciate. We live in a wonderfully diverse world, and I think the more we understand about each other the better we become as a species.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?
My favorite horror subject is vampires and ghosts, I think they are wonderful. In my mind they are both misunderstood and extremely powerful. As an author you get to play with these types of monsters, and are only limited by your imagination. For example; how would vampires exist in our technological world? How do they keep themselves from being found out on social media? This is the same with ghosts, we’ve all seen the videos and heard the stories, and yes, some of it might be fancy editing and special effects, but what if it’s not? What if they are lost souls who need help? Or worse, what if they are angry souls, demons, and spirits out to cause harm and pain.

You get to play around a lot with these types of characters. I not only enjoy writing them, but I enjoy reading what others have done with them. Even some of the older horror movies with ghosts and vampires are epic and fun to watch.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?
I’m hoping to see a transition back to the ‘good old days’ before they showed everything on screen. I believe that no images we put on screen or down in words is nearly as powerful as our minds. King and Hitchcock both understand this in their storytelling. They never show you everything, they leave a lot up to your imagination, which is more terrifying then anything we can watch. So, I want to see more of this in movies, TV, and books. Story Tellers need to give us the basics and let our mind paint the rest of the gruesome picture.

Where can readers/listeners find your work?
People can find me at www.mdneu.com. That is where you’ll find everything you’d want to know about me and my writing world. Come on by and check it out, you’ll have a killer time.

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

sumiko armband

Most of my pieces in Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 are works that were written for the HorrorAddicts.net blog during February for the Black History Month series over several years. They are inspired by my personal connection as an African American to various subjects regarding the African Diaspora and horror writing. Coming up as a nascent horror writer, when I was younger, I often ran into people that did not associate horror writing or the genre with being African American. People actually had specific attitudes where they didn’t really think that black people wrote or enjoyed horror. Which is a trip, because there are lots and lots of different types of black horror films and a huge audience for them, which includes lots of people who are members of the black community. Writing these articles gave me a chance to show my love for the black community, my love for black horror, and to make sure that other people were aware of a lot of really wonderful things that are out there, such as in horror literature, the works of LA Banks, and works by Toni Morrison that are specifically horror writing. And there are all of these wonderful films by people like Tony Todd that I have really loved growing up, and all of my life. I hope that I can share that love of black horror writers, black characters in horror writing and film, and more, with other people through these articles.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with R.L. Merrill

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

Merrill_RL-HeadshotWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest?

I’m R.L. Merrill—you can call me Ro—and I write romance and horror. I’m also a rabid music fan and seeker of haunted spaces. I have a bachelor’s degree in history and I’m drawn to cemeteries, old hotels, and bars for inspiration. I collect horror-themed artwork, especially skulls of all varieties, and I’m a horror movie fanatic.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?

My piece about my favorite Dark Love Songs is included in the collection as well as my interview with Naching T. Kassa, who has a brilliant mind.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

Just one? Probably ghost stories because I frequently wonder about what happens after we die. I’m fascinated by the stories folks share about their encounters and I think about the history we can learn from actual spirits or even the tales of forgotten times and places. The human experience is a never-ending source of inspiration for me. I’m also a fan of monsters and the misunderstood. You can’t make me pick just one.


What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?
I’m obsessed with Mike Flanagan’s works and I can’t wait for his take on my favorite Poe story, “The Fall of the House of Usher.” My story in Haunts and Hellions from Horror Addicts Press was inspired by this story and I love the Vincent Price movie version as well. I’m also anxious to see what my current favorite horror-themed band Ice Nine Kills will come up with next. Welcome to Horrorwood, their most recent album, was truly stunning, and seeing them in concert was phenomenal.

Where can readers/listeners find your work?

Historian of Horror : The Foggiest Notion

Seeing that title, you might be under the impression that this edition’s subject is John Carpenter’s 1981 movie. You would be laboring under a misapprehension. We are discussing the peculiar atmospheric, in more ways than one phenomenon that is at the core of that film, but it just so happens that we are doing literature this time out – English author James Herbert’s 1975 novel, The Fog, to be specific – instead.

No ghostly, leprous sailors lurking in the mists coming in from the sea in this one. Herbert’s fog wells up from a crack in the ground running down the High Street of an English village and drives anyone it comes into contact with it homicidally insane. After committing as many anti-social acts as possible, the victims typically die.

Fortunately, the hero of the tale is the only person in the nation to recover and gain immunity from the murderous vapor, which roams about the countryside, turning its victims very naughty indeed, frequently in grotesquely inventive ways. The novel is suspenseful in the manner of English story-telling of its kind, reminiscent of one of Dr. Quatermass’s adventures for the BBC, but Nigel Kneale’s televised creation never dared show the horrific fates visited on one of the faculty of a boys’ school, for example. 

Entire villages are wiped out before the protagonist is able to convince the authorities to put down their tea and crumpets and do something constructive. His girlfriend gets a dose and nearly finishes him off several times, which complicates his efforts to impel the various ministries to get it in gear and solve the dilemma the government is ultimately responsible for. He does manage to get her into cold storage while various scientists work on a cure. Meanwhile, the fog slithers ever closer to London…

The Fog was Herbert’s second book. Like his first, The Rats, it’s a disaster tale with a scientific explanation. I enjoyed it for what it was, an early effort, somewhat derivative but fun and briskly paced. I have to admit I sort of skimmed over a few lines here and there. There are certain things that can be done to a school headmaster by wanton boys with no self-control that few adult males are apt to be comfortable reading about.

Ouch!

His third book, The Survivor, was a supernatural horror story, as were a fair number of his total of twenty-three novels. Herbert died in March of 2013 at the age of sixty-nine. 

The Fog has not been adapted to film, but The Rats has been under the title Deadly Eyes (1982). A few of Herbert’s other books have also been filmed. 

Speaking of movies, you might have heard of a little film franchise from Japan called Godzilla – the biggest, baddest radioactive lizard in the sea. But not the first. Ray Bradbury’s story, “The Fog Horn”, was published in 1951 in the pages of The Saturday Evening Post, one of those slick magazines all pulpsters aspired to graduate to the pages of in those days. It’s the charming tale of a deep sea creature that is lured to the surface by the dulcet tones of a lighthouse’s fog horn, thinking he’s finally found a mate. Every year, he comes up hoping to find true love, until on his third visit, the keepers turn the fog horn off. In a fit of pique, the thwarted lover demolishes the lighthouse and slips back under the waves.

Two years later, Warner Brothers released a film loosely based on the story with special effects by stop-motion wizard Ray Harryhausen. The title character of The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms is a dinosaur awakened from suspended animation by nuclear testing in his neighborhood. Sound familiar? He demonstrates his annoyance by rampaging through New York, passing out a contagious prehistoric disease as he progresses through the city. He is finally cornered on Coney Island, where he discovers he’s too tall to ride the roller coaster.

The film stars B-Movie stalwart Kenneth Tobey, who two years earlier had defeated The Thing from Another World in the Arctic, and two years later would save San Francisco from the five-armed giant octopus in It Came from Beneath the Sea, another Harryhausen creation. Busy guy. Towards the end of his life, he popped up in cameos in The Howling, Strange Invaders and both Gremlins movies, among others. He passed away in 2002 at the age of 85.

***

Speaking of passing away, Italian cartoonist and co-creator of Zora la Vampira Birago Balzano died on March 25, 2022. Zora was a very-much-NSFW fumetto about a 19th Century blonde possessed by the spirit of Dracula. She traveled the world bedding and biting anyone willing to be bedded and bitten. Balzano was eighty-six.

Until we meet again, dear fiends…

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Mark Orr

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

markorrIt would have been difficult to NOT become a horror addict when I was growing up. I was born just after the beginning of the horror renaissance of the late 1950s, and by the time I was culturally aware, that renewal was in full swing. Monsters were everywhere by the mid-1960s, and with fewer entertainment options, their presence was much more concentrated and therefore ubiquitous than today. The entertainment choices we now enjoy that are spread across hundreds of local and cable television channels and as many more streaming services were in those days distilled down to, in most places, three or four networks – NBC, CBS, ABC and sometimes PBS – and maybe one or two independent UHF channels per market, if you were lucky. Everyone knew who Herman Munster was, or Barnabas Collins, or Morticia Addams, or Samantha Stevens. Everyone who had access to a television set had seen at least one episode of The Twilight Zone. Programming at the local and national levels was filled out with regular movie presentations – morning, afternoon, prime time, week day, weekend, late night. Old movies, recent theatrical releases, made-for-television-films – there was no other way to watch movies outside of theaters until the widespread availability of cable TV and home video in the late 1970s to mid-1980s. And many of the movies shown were the Universal horror pictures of the 1930s and 1940s, or the Godzilla films from Japan, or the “in unliving color” blood-and-bodice terrors from Hammer Films in England. Monsters were depicted on the covers of mainstream national magazines – Life, Look, Time, TV Guide. Toys, games, model kits, wallets, comic books, bubble-gum cards, lunchboxes, everything that appealed to children of the time had monsters plastered all over them. Magazines about movie monsters and paperback books full of pulp magazine reprints about – you guessed it – monsters crowded the newsstands in every drug store within walking distance of my home. America was glutting itself on monsters, and I wallowed in that cultural cesspool of delicious terrors.

How could I possibly avoid being caught up in it?

Why would I want to?

So, eventually I grew up, got married, went to college and got my BA in history, then started producing offspring and being obliged to make a living and all that other adulting stuff attendant thereto. Now that my kids are grown and I’m left with this massive accumulation of horror books and magazines and comics, and scary movies, radio shows and TV programs, and creepy toys and games and cards and all manner of other cool stuff, what else is there to do with it all but write about it for the enlightenment, entertainment and edification of younger generations of horror addicts?

And so, that’s why I do what I do. That is why I am, and shall for the foreseeable future remain, your Friendly Neighborhood Historian of Horror.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Tabitha Thompson

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

20180209_121722_2[1]What inspired me to become a Horror Addict was at the tender age of 5 I was exposed to a movie called Maniac Cop by my mother. As horrified as I was of that movie (and the sequel), it unexpectedly had given me a love of horror, and given that I started writing stories at that age, it was only a matter of time before those two worlds would collide and I would become the person that I am today.  What has encouraged me to keep creating is my never-ending love for storytelling. Aside from books, I observe peoples’ actions and energy and find ways to incorporate them into various stories. I love having a ‘what if’ mentality with different situations that have either happened in my life or other people’s lives and finding new macabre ways to put it onto paper. With the understanding that everybody has a story to tell; I find that inspiration is pretty much everywhere and it helps to make some fascinating stories. Another encouraging factor that has kept me creating is my family; I want to not just provide a great life but inspire my nieces and future children with the idea that taking a leap and chance on yourself is definitely hard, but can be worth it.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Geneve Flynn

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

Geneve Flynn-Author-EditorWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest? 

Geneve Flynn. I’m a freelance fiction editor, and horror short story author and poet.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?

“What’s Your Lens” encourages writers, readers, and editors to consider that we all view the world through a certain lens. It’s impossible to escape because we don’t exist in a void. Reading diverse works can expand our understanding of broader perspectives, which opens the way for greater possibilities in publishing.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

My favorite horror subject is the psychology of horror. We read to understand others. We’re social creatures and our survival relies on being part of a group, so being able to understand how others think and predicting how they might act is pretty important. That’s why character is so key in a good story.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre? 

Books, books, and more books! There are so many interesting, talented folks creating fantastic dark fiction. I’ll probably die buried under my TBR pile, but I will be forever excited for new books. At the time of writing, I’m about two weeks out from heading to StokerCon live for the first time. I’m ridiculously excited about that.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Jonathan Fortin

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

Jonathan Fortin AUTHORPHOTO-2020My article 25 Of The Most Metal Films (That Aren’t About Metal) exists for two reasons: one, to promote my metal-themed short story Requiem In Frost; and two, out of spite that every list of “Metal movies” on the Internet. 

I completed the first draft of Requiem In Frost for a challenge in the Next Great Horror Writer Contest, wherein we were tasked to write a music-themed horror story. I’d had a fitting idea in my head for a while: a girl moving into a house haunted by the ghost of a murdered black metal musician, who she would befriend and eventually avenge by finding his killer. While I didn’t win that particular challenge, I did win the competition, and was invited to publish the work as a standalone ebook. (I recently recorded some parts for the audiobook, which should be out later this year.) 

I wrote 25 Films… as a blogpost to promote the story’s original launch, back in 2019. While researching similar lists online, I found an irritating tendency: nearly every list of the most “metal” films focused only on movies that were specifically about metal, rather than ones that felt metal. And I hate to say it, but despite my great love for the genre, I feel that a lot of the frequently-cited metal-themed films honestly aren’t that good. Most are extremely low-budget, to boot. In my mind, very few capture the epic, bombastic essence of metal. 

With that in mind, I decided to list only movies that weren’t specifically about metal, even though Requiem In Frost very much is. I instead focused on movies that had aesthetics, atmosphere, and/or subject matter that seemed appropriate for a metal album. I tried to include as much variety of metal as possible, from fantasy appropriate for symphonic power metal (The Lord of the Rings, Legend) to horror appropriate for goregrind (Martyrs, which you probably shouldn’t watch unless you have a very strong stomach). I also included a few stinkers out of necessity—Heavy Metal is tough to recommend in 2022, and I’ve personally never been a big fan of Conan the Barbarian—but the list wouldn’t feel complete without them. If I were to revise it for the years that have passed since 2019, then 2021’s The Spine of Night and 2022’s The Northman would both be shoe-ins for inclusion.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Mark Orr

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

markorrWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest?

My name is Mark Orr, and I am the Historian of Horror. I have been intensely curious about nearly everything there is to be interested in for all sixty-three years of my life, including horror as expressed in every aspect of human endeavor – art, music, film and spooky storytelling in all its myriad forms, as well as the customs and traditions that arise out of the horrors that inform the human experience. I am also interested in the intersection of horror with other genres, especially mystery, which is itself another passion of mine.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?

It’s about the broad range of horrific expression in every genre, every medium, every cultural practice known to humanity. Creepy comics, frightening films, monstrous music, scary stories, terrifying television, all of these are examined in my various articles.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

How cultural expressions of horror reflect the terrors of the time and place in which they are created – the angst of their age, if you will.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?

Historians have a tendency to look backwards more than forwards, but there’s always the delicious anticipation of coming across some forgotten artifact or unexpected scholarly work that will illuminate a previously unexamined facet of horror.

Book Review: The Man in the Field

The Man in the Field by James Cooper, pub. Cemetery Dance Publications 10.6.2022 is available on amazon.

Synopsis:

The village: a remote, God-fearing place, governed by ancient rituals that provide eternal balance to the land. Here, people have faith in working the soil, the good Lord above, and their own peaceful community. This is how they have lived for centuries, the Council providing spiritual oversight and the charismatic Father Lynch lighting the way.

As he does every year, according to an age-old custom, the man in the field arrives amid much rejoicing and apprehension. To sanctify the newly planted crops and ensure a productive harvest, the village must make a personal sacrifice in his name. This is the tradition that must be honored. For every blessing, there is a debt to be paid . . .

Mother Tanner, an older member of the village, has seen all this before. She has been born and raised in the shadow of these harsh solemnities and feels increasingly disturbed by them. Celebrating the Turning of the Wheel and exalting in God’s bounty is only half the story; there is much here that she is starting to distrust. Not least of which is Father Lynch himself and his beloved Council. And the enigmatic man in the field, who gazes not at the village, but at the distant horizon, thinking only of the overdue debt and the stroke of midnight when it will be time to collect . .

Review:

The Man in the Field by James Cooper drew me to it with its promise of rural isolation and strange doings. With its ritual nature, it sounded very much like a folk horror, which is a genre I love. It sort of is, but with a layer of dystopia washing over it.

My first impression, as the villagers respond to the sudden—although expected—appearance of the man in the field, is of an isolated community set some time in the past. It reminded me of the setup of the film The Village, being similarly bordered by forbidden woods. As these villagers respond to the man’s presence—the precursor to horrific events portrayed as a ‘blessing’ by the males of the community and by the council in particular—little bits of modern living are dropped in: the references to the city, the discovery of someone watching a video on their mobile phone, the journey taken at the end away from the village. All of this is neatly done, adding to the sense of dislocation and difference of the village and its inhabitants.

At the heart of the story is the relationship between Mother Tanner and Father Lynch. The latter is effectively the leader of the council, whilst the former is someone Lynch considers a challenge to himself, disrupting his authority within the community. When Mother Tanner discovers some of his secrets following the awful outcome of The Offering, she comes under increasingly close scrutiny and is in a position of some danger—from the men, from some of the women, and from some of the strangers in the woods. I still can’t quite believe that the women allow the offering to go ahead if they are the subjugated, but there is little they can do.

The sinister presence of the man in the field is something I would like to have known more about. With his sudden appearance and his continual unmoving position, with his back to the people of the village so they never see his face, he gives an almost supernatural feel to the tale. Apart from his presence denoting the start of the sacrificial ritual and the resultant offering, nothing more is explained.

Throughout the pages, the events are a backdrop to this ongoing ‘duel’ between Mother Tanner and Father Lynch, told with an excellent building of tension and pace. If this is a standalone novella, then I would say that the ending is somewhat unsatisfying. If there is to be a sequel, then it is the perfect place to stop. I also have the suspicion that any follow-up will play more to the dystopian nature of the story than the folk aspect, but that is my own opinion! Regardless of this, I would still highly recommend this atmospheric and weird little tale.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Michael Fassbender

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

M. FassbenderIf you want to trace my love of horror back to the beginning, it would have to start with the Haunted Mansion at Disney World when I was four years old. That became my favorite place in the whole park, and then I came to realize that Halloween was the time of year when everybody sort of plays along. Naturally, that became my favorite holiday. It was my discovery of Lovecraft in high school, however, that kindled a desire to write horror stories of my own. I can still remember thinking of my very first short story idea while shoveling my grandmother’s driveway.

The specific incidents that inspired the articles I wrote here are fairly well documented in each of them, but more broadly, they both touch upon subjects dear to my heart. One presents a philosophical look at music and horror. I’ve been a fan of Heavy Metal since I was sixteen, and when you get down to it, the horror element in the music was always a big part of what I appreciated, from Black Sabbath to Mercyful Fate.

The other concerns the intersection of history and horror, and that is another natural fit for me. I am a lifelong student of history (and hold an M.A. from IU-Bloomington) and it remains a major avocation. Anyone who has read my stories, including “Miroir de Vaugnac” in Dark Divinations, will notice this. 

Ancient Egypt is one of my earliest fascinations, and I’ve written several stories involving it. As a matter of fact, the first of them has seen publication this year, in Unbreakable Ink Vol. 2. “The Seeker and the Queen of Ghouls” brings an acolyte of Aleister Crowley together with the legendary Queen Nitokris in 1923.

renaWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest?
My name is Rena Mason and I’m a horror author of fiction and nonfiction. I have also co-written a screenplay and have another in the works.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?
My article is about the use of colors and the emotions they elicit in film(s) and how I applied those techniques to my short story “The Ninth Tale” in the award-winning anthology Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?
Pretty much everything horror is a favorite subject to me, but if I had to pinpoint an aspect that had the most impact on my early developing horror mind, I would have to say monsters. From reading the ogre in Jack and the Beanstalk and the monsters in Where the Wild Things Are to sneaking late-night peeks of Godzilla and Christopher Lee’s Dracula, they all struck an intense fear that the kid in me also found thrilling.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre? 

This one’s easy—Other Terrors: An Inclusive Anthology which I co-edited with Vince Liaguno for the HWA’s Anthology Series published by Mariner/HarperCollins out July 19th.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with M.D. Neu

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

MDNeuThe article I provided for Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 titled; When Did you Know? Was inspired by all the times I’ve been asked that same question by friends, co-workers, and family. I find the question funny, especially because people will ask me this when they find out I’m a gay man. I’ve never once asked my heterosexual counterparts that question; When did you know you were straight? See how silly the question sounds when you frame the question that way? Still, I wanted to share my story and my thoughts, because it’s not a story you see or hear a lot about. We tend to hear the coming out stories about hardship caused by parents and family’s cruelty to these emerging youth. My coming to terms with my sexuality had nothing to do with others, but more to do with me. I think a lot of us experience this, but I’m not sure. So, I shared my truth in hopes that my story will show that sometimes the pressure we put on ourselves is harder and worse then anything that others can put on us. I hope the article is something the people can read and relate to, even if they aren’t part of the queer community, because there is always something that we silently struggle with that even our closest friends and families may have no idea we are going through.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Kristin Battestella

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

kbatzIt’s difficult to keep creating horror content. Now and even before the very real-world scary pandemic. I move at my own old-fashioned speed back from ye olden 1980s where you couldn’t find scary content 24/7, 365. Do I have anything worthwhile to say about what films and television scare us? Are my kooky crafts and macabre trash to treasures subjective art that is only a sophisticated haunt to me? I’m inspired by what makes our fight or flight response and why or what makes us look at dark things in a new light. I see something not as what it is, but what it could be. For some people, that is a terrifying concept – especially when it comes to your own art and creation. I enjoy sharing my opinion about Frightening Flix because I like to know what other people think about complex horror. I’d like to think some of my little DIY Kbatz Krafts can inspire others to break out of their four walls and seek what glamour moves them. Is it all just gothic adjectives and poor-quality cardboard and cheap hot glue? Maybe. However, it’s like Bob Ross said, “We need darkness in order to show light.”

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with CM Lucas

cmlucasWhat is your name, and what is your horror area of interest?

My name is Carl Michael (CM) Lucas. My area of interest is writing horror fiction. I am also an illustrator.

What is your work about in HAGL2? 

My piece is a list of the best horror games of all time… subjective, of course. 

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

Psychological torment is my favorite subject within horror. The mind is inescapable, and what it can create is far more terrifying than anything within the realm of reality. 

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre? 

I’ve been hearing rumors about another attempted reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street. The 2018 Halloween sequel/soft reboot was very fateful to the original, so that gives me hope for Nightmare’s reboot. There have also been rumors that Sony plans on buying the Silent Hill IP and continuing the franchise. That is spectacular. 

What inspires your work?

 Hm… Do you have an hour? There’s so much for movies to (Silent Hill mostly), the work of Philip K. Dick, Junji Ito, and subversion stories. 

Where can readers find your work?

Nonfiction: Thethings.com, The Official Black Magazine.com, View The Vibe. Fiction: Reedsy.com, Twitter, and soon, in bookstores as I have finished my first horror novel, and I am working on a publishing deal. However, I save my best horror prose for Horroraddicts.net.

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

J. Malcolm StewartWell, like most of us who have the delusion of being writers, I’ve been telling stories of all kinds since I was a kid. I’ve been a published author with various small presses around North America and the UK for about 10 years now and as of yet no one has come to take me away. So onward I go!  Good Horror storytelling is characters saying the right thing and doing the right thing at the right time in the story. I’ve always responded to that trigger or emphasis as a reader or viewer. Horror is unique in its ability to deal with both complex themes and primary motivations (fear, panic, loss, revenge etc). My pieces in the collection try to place the themes of horror in context, with both serious and humorous analysis. Hopefully, I communicate why I, and so many of us, love horror and the rush of excitement and anticipation it brings to our lives. It’s the only addiction that’s good for you!

Hi! My name is Russell Holbrook, and my horror area of interest is horror fiction. I love writing horror! Coming in a very close second is horror music. I love listening to and creating spooky sounds!

What is your work in HAGL2 about?

I have some short fiction featured. One piece is a poem about being chased by Death, I think, and there’s a “travel log” about getting lost in the Winchester Mystery House, and another travel piece about visiting the Trans-Alleghany Lunatic Asylum. Muwahahahaha! 

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

My favorite horror subject is probably possession and/or spiritual issues, which can also include issues of mental and emotional health, or the lack thereof, haha! I love that because I’m very interested in spirituality and the supernatural. I was raised in a religious home, and I love to think that there’s a spiritual world that we can sometimes access, and I enjoy imagining what kind of influence or effect that world might have on our world and how the two might interact.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?
Halloween Ends!  😀

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Jonathan Fortin

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

Jonathan Fortin AUTHORPHOTO-2020What is your name and what is your horror area of interest? 

I’m Jonathan Fortin, and I’m a Horror and Dark Fantasy author.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?
25 Of The Most Metal Films (That Aren’t About Metal) is list of movies that aren’t specifically about metal, but capture the essence of the music genre. It was created as a promotional article for my horror short story Requiem In Frost, which is about a girl being haunted by the ghost of a murdered black metal musician, and trying to find his killer.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?
I have a special interest in all things Gothic, from the dark crumbling castles to the beautiful Victorian outfits to the psychological intrigue. I love monsters, explorations of mental illness/trauma, dark romance/eroticism, and transformation. My work also often features body horror, and more than a few Lovecraftian influences as well.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?
I’m really excited for Stranger Things Season 4, Guillermo Del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities, and Jordan Peele’s Nope. I’m also really hoping Netflix’s Sandman show, HBO’s The Last Of Us show, AMC’s Interview With The Vampire show, and Evil Dead Rise are good, but I also have a certain degree of anxiety about whether they’ll live up to their names.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Steven P. Unger

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

novamp10Growing up, I voraciously read science fiction books and pre-Code horror comics (see http://thehorrorsofitall.blogspot.co.nz/), and especially loved watching the old Hammer Films about Count Dracula on TV. Produced between 1958 and 1974, they almost always starred Christopher Lee in the title role.

Around 1980 I found a coffee table book-sized paperback titled The Annotated Dracula, with copious notes, maps, and even a calendar of events in the novel. I loved Bram Stoker’s skillful foreshadowing of dire events; the way his imagery boiled up from the collective unconscious of the Victorian mind and the sexual repression of the 1890s when Dracula was conceived.

Over time I developed an obsession to travel to every site related to either the fictional Count Dracula or his real historical counterpart, Prince Vlad Dracula the Impaler—especially after a visit to Whitby, England, where three chapters of the novel Dracula take place. I stood on the cemetery hill where, in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Lucy Westenra and Mina Murray spent hour after hour sitting on their “favourite seat” (a bench placed over a suicide’s grave near the edge of the cliff)—while Count Dracula slept just beneath them!

In my mind’s eye, I could see the un-dead count rising at night from the suicide’s grave slab to greedily drink the blood of the living. The graveyard where Count Dracula spent his days sleeping in the sepulcher of a suicide looks the part that it plays, with weathered limestone tombs blackened by centuries of the ever-present North Sea winds. That graveyard made the novel more visible, more visceral, to me, and I wondered if the sites in Transylvania described in Dracula and in the remote mountains of southern Romania would evoke the same chilling feelings. 

But my quest to solve that mystery would have to be postponed. From 1974 to 1989 the country of Romania was in the grip of the ruthless, cult-of-personality regime of Nicolae Ceauşescu. As official television broadcasts showed stores full of produce that was actually painted plastic, thousands of Romanians were being tortured in political prisons and millions more were near starvation.

I wasn’t restricted from going there, but it felt all wrong. I didn’t want to support the Ceauşescu dictatorship in the slightest way.

After fifteen years of increasingly repressive rule, on Christmas Day in 1989, the brutal dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu and his wife Elena were executed by a military firing squad in Tărgovişte (the very city from where Vlad the Impaler ruled his princedom!).

In all I waited more than twenty years until I could journey to Transylvania and experience a free and independent Romania. But it wasn’t going to be easy. The Ceauşescu regime had gutted what little infrastructure Romania had, and there were no tourist offices in Romania to help me get to Transylvania. But I made it, and my book, In the Footsteps of Dracula, was the result.

What makes me keep writing despite the relentless rejections? Feedback like this:

“We took your book to Romania with us, went to the sites, hotels, and restaurants you recommended; took the same buses, trains, and MaxiTaxis; and had the greatest time!”

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Kay Tracy

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

What is your name and what is your horror area of interest?
Kay Tracy here.  I never thought of myself as a “Horror Addict,” I mean, I am not overly fond of modern horror movies, though I admit as a kid, watching many MANY Lugosi and Karloff movies! I also enjoy dark tales and stories.


What is your work in HAGL2 about?
My contribution in this issue is actually based on a true event that I cannot fully explain…..

What is your favorite horror subject and why?
That is a hard one to answer.  I like ‘cautionaly’ tales and those with moral lessons.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?
Hmmm, well, I did just attend the Iceland Horror film fest, Frostbiter, and there were several fun films to be seen, so I guess more films and shorts!

Book Review: MAELSTROMS – COLLECTED DARK FICTION ABOUT THE SEA

A review by Renata Pavrey

I love anthologies for the bite-sized stories they provide to read on the go, and also for introducing the reader to a range of writers and writing styles within a compact collection. Maelstroms from Shacklebound Books piqued my interest for its genre and theme of dark fantasy and horror set around the sea. Edited by Eric Fomley, the compilation features an assortment of short stories by twenty-three writers, each one wonderful in its own way.

From mermaids to pirates, haunted castles and dangerous storms, sea creatures and suspicious amphibians, witches and queens, Maelstroms presents a plethora of tales about watery graves. I particularly liked how the authors dissected the narrow theme and explored the depths of their dark imaginations. Each story is so different from the next one, even though they’re all about the same topic. Kudos to editor Eric Fomley for his spectacular selection for this collection.

Some authors like Dorian Sinnott, Taylor Rae, and Dawn Vogel I was already familiar with from their work in other books. The anthology introduced me to new, stellar writers like Ai Jiang, Dennis Mombauer, Addison Smith, and Jenna Hanchey. A few stories that stood out for me were Dangers of the Deep, A Bad Day at Sea, Until There Were None, The Island of Masks, No King Will Come for You, The Ocean’s Choice, Grow, and The Kingfishers Come at Dawn, although I loved all of them – Maelstroms is a very well written and put together collection.

Some quotes:

~There was nothing to row to. Only the sea, filled with the crimes of his past.

~The sky, the very sea, was red. Not the red of blooming sunlight, but the crimson red of blood.

~They said her hair had become stained with blood and that is why it was red. Dead Red Delahaye.

~What tossed us into the sea’s dark waters was not the strong winds that carried us forth, nor the storms that brewed and rocked the ship, but the men who found that we were too many mouths to feed.

~The word slides into the hall like frozen glass.

~…the shadows were so profound that just his weighted leg revealed which side was down.

~…the agony of drowning and the peace of death.

~In the end, her most important lesson was the one the students taught.

~Scattered among the sand are a multitude of stones…, worn affectionately from embraces of the ocean.

~I feed on iron and bone and tears.

~Frost clung to her eyelashes and nipped at her cheeks, tasting her. The winter was hungry.

My rating – 5/5

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with A.D. Vick

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

DSCF1060What is your name and what is your horror area of interest?

My name is A.D. Vick, and I write Gothic and Southern Gothic fiction. I am particularly fond of vampires, but my material also delves into the spooky feel of cemeteries, witchcraft, Ozark culture, and various other aspects of the supernatural.

What is your work in HAGL2 about?

My work in the new book consists of several biographies/obituaries of actors or producers in the horror-film industry that have passed on from this world.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

Without a doubt, vampires are my favorite horror subject. I love their ability to mesmerize—to be seductive, and yet be such blood-thirsty, lethal creatures.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?

Mostly, I simply wish that the horror industry would quit redoing so many films, and instead, focus on new material. I strongly feel that horror is capable of taking many twists and turns, which as of yet, have not been explored.

Where can readers/listeners find your work? 

I have a website entitled Tales of Dark Romance and Horror, which is also the title of my first book. It can be accessed at http://www.romanceandhorror.com/ . The site provides purchasing information as well as excerpts from many of the stories contained within the pages of my books.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with R.L. Merrill

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

Merrill_RL-HeadshotMy stepfather, aka The Dude (way before Lebowski), has fallen asleep in his recliner around seven pm since he became my stepfather in 1975. He wakes a few hours later and watches TV, mostly Westerns, and Horror flicks. I was not quite three years old when he married my mom and gave me a fantastic stepsister, and as I grew older, I looked forward to sneaking out of bed to watch Creature Features and The Twilight Zone with him. My first drive-in memory was going to see Jaws 2 with the fam in our Pinto station wagon with the fake wood paneling and my mom accidentally spilling the entire bucket of homemade popcorn on him. 

My love of horror grew to its current level of obsession when we got our first VHS player somewhere around 1983 and a video store opened down the street. I remember walking to the store most days in the summertime to return the two horror flicks (two was the limit at this place) I’d rented the day before and rent two more. House, The Pit, and The Reanimator were all early faves. I re-watched The Company of Wolves so many times…and creepy Sting in Brimstone and Treacle horrified me. But I was in love with the morbidly mysterious, the murky spaces, and the monsters. Then I spied my mom’s copy of Stephen King’s Night Shift…and I snuck the book into my room. I read “The Boogeyman” and scared myself deliciously to death. 

I’ve been a proud Horror Addict for about 44 years now and I love bringing my love of music to the blog and podcast in the form of reviews for some of the best horror-infused tunes out there today. One of my favorite pieces I submitted to the blog was about Dark Love Songs…We love them, don’t we? It’s my goal to share all the titillating horror tunes with you awesome addicts.

I knew I’d met a kindred spirit when Emerian Rich first came into my life a few years ago.  I’m grateful she brought me into the HA fold and introduced me to the best people. I loved reading Naching T. Kassa’s short stories and when I was asked to interview her for the blog I jumped at the chance. Now I’ll pretty much do anything our mistress asks and I’ll continue as long as she lets me play in her creepy sandbox. 

Thanks, Horror Addicts. Stay Tuned…

Book Review: Future Tense: Tales of Apocalyptic Vision

Future TenseHello Addicts,

Apocalypse. It is a word that has so many meanings to so many people. To some, it is the end of all things. To others, it is the end of one time and the start of a new. Both meanings are on full display in “Future Tense: Tales of Apocalyptic Vision” by Michaelbrent Collings.

This is a collection of stories that covers a gamut of horrific settings. It starts with using clones to deter suicides in a totalitarian future; moves on to a society where a computer decides your life; and then lands on a group of friends getting together being forced to play a deadly children’s game. There are post-apocalyptic stories on a global scale, and others covering a more personal perspective. Michaelbrent Collings seems to have all the bases covered.

Since starting doing book reviews for Horror Addicts, I have become a big fan of the author. When I see one of his books, I know I am in for a macabre ride and good storytelling. This collection didn’t disappoint. I don’t want to divulge too many details to keep from accidentally revealing spoilers, but I can say that there is something for everyone in there. There is humor for those who like their funny bone tickled while being chilled, and nasty people getting their just rewards. Even the author appears in a story as well. All will have a fun and scary time.

You can find “Future Tense: Tales of Apocalyptic Vision” by Michaelbrent Collings on Amazon in eBook, hardcover, and paperback formats.

Until next time, Addicts,

D.J.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Tabitha Thompson

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

20180209_121722_2[1]What is your name and what is your horror area of interest? My name is Tabitha Thompson and my horror area of interest is I’m a horror fiction author.

What is your work in HAGL2 about? 

My work is a blog post about my personal experiences as a black female writing horror fiction and the writers who has inspired me on this journey.

What is your favorite horror subject and why? 

I’m torn between psychological and body horror. Psychological because dealing with the horrors of the mind has always been creepier to me than paranormal activities; and body horror because as much as we try to maintain control, when something horrible happens to our body that is out of our control, to me that is extremely terrifying.

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre? 

I’m looking forward to David Cronenberg’s upcoming film Crimes Of The Future. He’s going back to his body horror roots and I can not wait to see it!

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with James Goodridge

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

jamesgoodridge headshotI’m inspired to write… 

On a Saturday night, as a child growing up in The Bronx, New York among other reasons in the mid-1960s remember gathering with my family in front of our black and white floor model Zenith television to watch NBC’s (?) Saturday Movie of The Week, which consisted of movies theatrically shown two to five years or more, beforehand shown on television for the first time. Well on one of those family nights I was introduced to George Pal’s 1954 version of H.G. Wells , War of The Worlds, science fiction yet still horror. A few years later I would identify with actor Duane Jones character of color in George Romero’s game-changing Night of The Living Dead (YouTube has a wonderful video back story of how P-Funk maggot overlord George Clinton and his Parliament Funkadelic bandmates on a detour to a gig drove stoned into the middle of Romero’s filming) add to that a love for Hammer Horror films, which introduced me to Gothic horror. With this background, I as a speculative writer in the sub-genre of occult detective and a person of color, tend to include when world-building and character creating from time to time use black historical figures lesser-known from history in my stories. The essays I have written are part of my journey in horror. Horror is a way of life, a kind of comfort food if I may say. When life goes hard you go macabre. If I can make a person put their cares aside for a few minutes in a short story or brief essay, like an old school half-hour to hour TV show then I’ve done my job.

#HorrorAddictsGuide An Interview with Sumiko Saulson

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

sumiko armbandWhat is your name and what is your horror area of interest? 

My name is Sumiko Saulson, and I am a horror fiction author. I am a novelist, short story writer, horror poet, and screenwriter. As it happens, I am also a musician, with a band, Stagefright, and I am an artist and zinemaker. I have written many non-fiction essays on the subject of horror, such as “Elements of Horror in Toni Morrison’s Magical Realism,” which you can read an edited version of in Horror Addicts Guide to Life2. 

What is your work in HAGL2 about?

I have a lot of different kinds of work in Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2. However, I would say that a bunch of the work that I have in here concerns. African American and African diaspora involvement in the horror genre. For example, there is the above-mentioned “Elements of Horror in Toni Morrison’s Magical Realism.” I was really proud to have been one of the people who was making a case for the fact that work such as Toni Morrison’s Beloved, is clearly in the horror genre. That work is a very clear example of something belonging in the Southern Gothic horror fiction genre. Because people had associated horror writers with a narrow selection of white men for so many years, they overlooked the fact that a lot of things by women and people of color belonged in the genre. And they were not being recognized. 

Some of the other things that I wrote about was an article about why we need to see LA Banks’ badass vampire huntress Damali Richards on the television screen, and that’s under the section about vampires. I also wrote in that one about how Blade saved the Marvel. Movie franchise. So as you can see, both of those articles are about Black representation in the horror genre. From Google to Akasha is another article that deals with black presence in horror fiction both in writing and in the motion picture and television industry. And this one is dealing with how black women are presented in the genre.

I have a piece about the revival of the psychological horror subgenre. I wrote about Tony Todd., absolutely adore him. And I wrote. A remembrance of my dear friend, the talented Serena Toxicat, who we sadly lost early in this pandemic. I remember one year when me and Serena both competed for the Battle of the Bands type thing that they have on the horror addicts. Blog to try to see if we could have the song for the season. Although we both lost, promoting it together was part of the fun things that we did in our relationship. We did a lot of promoting different types of book events together and I will miss her. For always.

What is your favorite horror subject and why?

My favorite horror subject is the hubris of mankind. Whether you’re talking about something like Doctor Victor von Frankenstein in Mary Shelley’s book Frankestein, or Doctor Jekyll in Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the protagonist in Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend, or the US Government in Stephen King’s The Stand, so many great horror stories start out with one human being with a tremendous ego doing something that he shouldn’t be doing. As you can see, I am a huge fan of the psychological horror genre. I love all of these things about how the human mind works, and why we do the things we do, and why we maybe should question some of those things. I love the fact that so many marginalized people are now taking the POV and shifting it so that instead of being the monsters in the story, the way that we were in old stories like W.W Jacob’s “The Monkeys Paw,” where people are afraid of us and our otherness, we are actually in danger because we’re being othered. Of course, Jordan Peele’s Get Out is a spectacular example of that, and NIA Decosta’s take on Candyman also illustrates this point quite vividly, as does Chesya Burke’s short story, “We.”

What are you looking forward to in the horror genre?

I am super excited to be a part of the upcoming book of essays on queerness in horror film called It Came from The Closet: Queer Reflections on Film, edited by Joe Vallese. I am also waiting eagerly for the release of Dragon Age 4, and if you follow this video game series, you can understand why I feel that it is part of the horror genre and not just fantasy. There is a lot of involvement with demons and zombie type creatures called the darkspawn, and where they left off in Dragon Age Inquisition, this next one is going to be a real blast. However, there’s no release date as of this writing. I am hyped to go to Stoker con in Denver this may. That’s coming up fast and may be already over by the time this gets published. But, if not, if you’re going to be at StokerCon., I am going to be on a few panels there and I’m also teaching a workshop on how to write scripts and storyboards for your horror comic so that you can communicate with artists on your project more efficiently.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Chantal Boudreau

HAGL2Banner1

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

Chantal BoudreauI was always that kid that didn’t do things just because they were expected.  I wanted to write and draw from a very young age.  I grew up on mythological stories, old fairy tales and Roald Dahl books, a combination of the weird, the fantastical and the dark that influenced my own artistic efforts.  Neither of my parents read horror, but my mother had books like Watership Down and Shardik on her shelves, that eventually led to me reading essentially gloomy tales like Plague Dogs.  My older sister introduced me to Stephen King and his ilk, inspiring an interest in horror.

I was lucky VCRs came along in my early teens because I got to watch movies that I never could have seen in the theatre at my age.  My parents were quite liberal and I was an old soul who never experienced nightmares from watching horror, so they allowed it starting in Junior High.  Horror went from an interest to a favourite. 

The lightbulb moment for my love of zombies was my first Romero film.  I sought out other zombie stories and discovered that the ones that appealed to me the most were the ones that combined elements of horror and comedy.  And clearly, I’m not alone, because the availability of zomedy-themed work is extensive.

I enjoyed capturing my thoughts and impressions on my preferred genre and subject matter and I hope readers are entertained by the results.

#HorrorAddictsGuide What Inspires Horror with Selah Janel

Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2 

selah author shot dlI was a big scaredy-cat as a kid but always had a strange fascination with horror. I’d be the one reading the backs of 80’s paperbacks or video boxes in stores when my parents weren’t looking, though it freaked me out. Somewhere along the line, I decided that I didn’t want to be afraid anymore, and really dug into the genre to help myself “get over it.” What I found was that there’s so many facets and sub-genres, so it’s really about finding what was a good fit for me. It escalated into getting involved with haunted events, first as a performer, and then as a costumer, and eventually a designer and consultant. When people think costumes, it’s easy to think about pretty dresses, elaborate theatre productions, historical recreations, and things like that. I found that my wheelhouse is the strange and the weird, and there’s plenty of need for it. I enjoyed the challenge of melding aesthetic with logistics, and every so often that meant I’d challenge myself to create something over the top. I was lucky that those tendencies found a home for so long designing things for amusement park haunts, and it was a journey that was exciting while also challenging. My piece in the book comes from some of those misadventures, both personal and professional. Whether it’s through writing or costume work, I’m inspired to keep creating because there are always more ideas, more processes to figure out, more things to make. It’s a never-ending candy story of weird, and I’m always happy when I get a chance to run around in it.
