    {Interview} Matt Godfrey, (Narrator Extraordinaire), Chats with Horror After Dark!

    by Matt Godfrey Genres: Contemporary, Dark Fiction, Fiction, Mystery, Occult & Supernatural, Psychological Horror   I somehow had the pleasure of getting to know Matt Godfrey and his work through Goodreads and through Valancourt Books. (Click to read our interview with Valancourt.) I don’t remember exactly how we met but since then, I’ve listened to many of Matt’s excellent narrations, the latest of which, Blackwater by Michael McDowell, is a true delight! Since Matt is from Alabama, he was the perfect, logical choice for this book, set near the banks of the Perdido River in Perdido, Alabama. Speaking of Alabama, please join me as I get to know Matt and…

    {Guest Post} ANDY GRAHAM, author of AN ANGEL FALLEN

    by Andy Graham One Genre to Rule Them All Given that I’m writing this blog for a horror website, you can probably guess what’s coming. Before we go any further I should give you a warning, this blog is a bit bracket-tastic. (You’ll see what I mean.) I’m going to go out on a limb and claim that horror is the master genre.

But what about the tropes? What about the cliches? Don’t they define genres? OK,…

    by Mark Cassell Buy on Amazon Promo Props and Wounds Some people are good for DIY projects, others not so much. They’ve always been my friend, however, and this proved no different when it came to making a prop for the Shadow Fabric mythos. Indeed, as it was, this particular prop ended up being on the front cover of my best-selling debut novel THE SHADOW FABRIC. I’m talking about the Hourglass. I knew from the outset I wanted to jump on the convention scene, so figured I should have something more than a fortress of novels on the table. I needed something that would snatch people’s attention. And now after…

    {Guest Post} STUART R. BROGAN

    by Stuart R. Brogan The Final Twist by Stuart R Brogan As any ardent, and hard-core fan of a good horror, or thriller novel knows, it’s not only about the sensation of dread portrayed by the author, or the claustrophobic gnawing eating away at our imaginations, but the inevitable sting in the tale that catches us by surprise. It’s the twists and turns within the story arc that make us shudder with anticipation, and make us gasp when the villain is revealed, or the truth uncovered. And that, my friends, is the part I personally love to write. It’s the part that shatters our entire viewpoint regarding the story we…
