Doguhn book cover
Some of you may have noticed that the site’s been a little light on content in the last couple weeks. That’s because I’ve been busy trying to get Doguhn up for sale as soon as possible (in the form of trade paperback and kindle) at the cost of much needed sleep. As a result of my unshaven insomnia, I’m happy to announce it’ll be out in time for the holidays. For those who have expressed interest, thank you for your patience and I hope the end result will be worth its weight in promises. I’ve taken my time to make sure everything is of the best possible quality I can offer. Continue reading
Doguhn - book cover
I’m making preparations to release Dōguhn, my first novel, for sale through Create Space on Amazon, to be sold as a trade paperback and for digital download through Kindle. I can’t say with any degree of certainty when it will be ready, but I estimate the process to take approximately a month (at least). I’ll be sure to let everyone know before it’s up for sale, and I’ll include more samples for your (hopeful) enjoyment in the meantime.
Are you planning take the adventure to the Eanigmus and learn the terrible secrets it hides, or are you, as our main protagonist asks, “…just gonna stand there with half a head?”
Poster for The Thing (2011)
As many of you are undoubtedly aware, there is going to be a prequel to John Carpenter’s The Thing released next week, misleadingly titled, “The Thing”. Already I’ve heard rumblings of those incorrectly assuming it’s actually a remake, and why wouldn’t they, being that it shares the same title, many of the events depicted in the trailer closely mimic those of the Carpenter’s film, and in a chickenshit move by Hollywood, none of the main characters are actually Norwegian…Well you can’t expect Americans to read subtitles now, can you?
So here I’m left with the dilemma of whether or not to give these people my money. It’s known that I’m quite vocally against remakes of classics, especially when they rape the original in it’s mouth, but The Thing is, in my humble opinion, the definitive remake. Now here comes a prequel to the remake, and so there shouldn’t be much for me to complain about…it’s not a remake, right? Continue reading
Yes, this site has been neglected as of late. I’d like to say right up front that until I can get some of these “real-life horror” issues off my plate, posting will be a little sporadic, but I promise it’ll be far more regular once that’s all done with. I’m also painfully aware that I’m well behind getting my novels up for sale, and for that I apologize. I kindly ask those who are interested to please be patient, and I hope the wait will be worth it…speaking of which…
Abarat: Absolute Midnight
I was speaking with a friend about remakes last night, and though there were some minor conflicts of opinion, I knew what today’s article was going to be.
(Editors note: There’s an obvious lack of photos for the “bad” remakes. This is purely out of spite because when I searched for screens of the originals, I had to shuffle through the crap remakes to get there. Plus I enjoy the purity of the wonderful photos below.)
Whenever the subject of remakes comes up, especially in the horror genre, there are a few examples I’ll always throw out there as the best examples on the subject; films that get it right on almost every level, and are done so well that they actually improve on the original and become classics in their own right. And then there’s that pile of shit over there with a few sweet smelling morsels, but for the most part, a pile of shit the world doesn’t necessarily need to consume.
John Carpenter's The Thing
And here’s a list of the 10 sexiest killers in horror films! It’s by no means an exhaustive list and it’s off the top of my head, so I’m sure there’s plenty I’ve missed. Chime in below and let me know who should be added. And ladies, feel free to add Patrick Bateman or any other guys (or girls) you find sexy 🙂
Warning: Extreme spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen all of these films!!! I repeat, SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
10. Trash (Return of the Living Dead)
"Hey, somebody get some light over here, Trash is taking off her clothes again."
I loved this scene as a kid for obvious reasons. She’s a hardcore punker chick with a hot little body, who loves tearing off her clothes at random. Eventually her greatest fear comes true and she’s eaten alive by old men, only to return a zombie wearing nothing but her stockings! If I were ever to be eaten alive by a zombie, I’d want it to be Trash! Continue reading
I wanted to call the blog The Lost Pages, as a reference to my most recently completed novel, as well as what I believed to be an effective name for a blog site. This didn’t happen because thelostpages.com was already taken. It’s inactive, but someone’s squatting like a bitch so I had to come up with something new.
So I played with names, searched for availability, then searched google for similar products and services to make sure I’m not stepping on anyone’s toes, found out I was and started the whole damn process over again. It took a lot of trial and error and plays on words to come to a final decision. Continue reading
Welcome to The Living Dread; future home of my horror novels and short stories (some free, some not so free), retro and new reviews of horror movies, books and games, and some fun discussion about all things horror.
So who am I? Well for now I’m a stranger to most of you, but I hope to change that with time, and I’d be tickled pink if a chunk of you found some enjoyment in my books. Continue reading
