    {Guest Post} Writing to Music by Mark Matthews

    Writing to Music: The Sounds of MILK-BLOOD Music has played a huge role in the evolution of horror. Soundtracks make watching a movie such as Halloween or Phantasm a full body experience.  Darkness has a tone all its own. But the sounds of darkness are present in fiction as well. The music is there as you read, and it is there while I write. For each book I have written, I have used a soundtrack to capture the tone of the novel. My novel STRAY was written to the Velvet Underground song Heroin, The Jade Rabbit to A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall, and On the Lips of Children was written…

Despite all the hate The Blair Witch Project receives within the horror community, the film does have its fans. And, while the film doesn’t show any on-screen deaths or disgusting scenes, the sense of dread is palpable. Dread is also subjective, and can be easily ruined if the viewer isn’t in the right frame of mind. If you went into The Blair Witch Project expecting a thrill ride, you were more than likely disappointed. The film…

    {Guest Post} On Writing: Choosing the Apocalypse by Nicholas Smith

    by Nicholas Sansbury Smith A few days ago I wrote a blog post about why I think Americans are obsessed with the apocalypse (link here). But I never explained why I am—and I never explained why I choose to write in this genre.   I’ll start with the “ever since I was a kid,” cliché. Because honestly, my fascination with the apocalypse started when I was about 8. There’s no denying the fact my Friday night routine was nerdy. It started with a trip to Toy’s R Us for the newest Star Wars figurine. From there my parents would take me to Great Midwestern Café for a Tuna Salad Croissant. And finally…
