The Engineer and The Black Death

Chapter 3 of my second novel, The Lost Pages of Trevor Sunburn. Check out the book page, which contains more excerpts here.

THE ENGINEER AND THE BLACK DEATH

Hotel food sucks. They charge an exorbitant amount of money for shit on a plate and after five days of eating that garbage, just the thought of a greasy slice of pizza would make the insides of my cheeks sweat.

Even the eggs suck. How in Zeus’s lightning do you fuck up eggs?

I guess it doesn’t help that I’m picky and don’t eat meat.

I had a vegetable panini one night; which in this case was squash, zucchini, mushrooms and some other crap on focaccia bread. Sure, it sounds mighty tasty, but damned if it didn’t make me want to fucking vomit. First, I pick it up and some big shiny red thing’s sticking out the side, wobbling around like a floppy dildo, then every time I try to take a bite of the bastard, these goddamn slimy sea creatures squeeze right out from between the buns and flop onto my plate with a wet splashing sound.

Needless to say, I took a stroll through the blistering cold to get pizza after that experience, rather than eat at the blasted hotel. It was either the elements, or I do battle with the fucking Kraken again. Continue reading


Doguhn: history, news, sequel?

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


Dōguhn: Coming soon

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?”


The Man With a Thousand Wounds (excerpt from Dōguhn)

I’ve been occupied with some things and so I regret that this site has been neglected. Though I’m happy to report that I’ve gotten quite a bit of writing done on my newest manuscript today (The Skin Collection). The chapter I just finished may be my most blasphemous work to date. I may post it on here eventually, but for now I’ll post another chapter from my first novel, Dōguhn. I’ll be reviewing a couple more movies shortly (potentially Kurosawa’s Cure and Cronenberg’s Shivers), and may even post some more top ten lists. Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading this excerpt from the chapter entitled, The Man With a Thousand Wounds. And don’t forget, I have a promise to keep; these books will be up for sale in the not too distant future…

A Non Paying Customer

The horrors of real life won’t allow me to add a long, well thought out post today. With that in mind I’ll give you a preview of what’s to come, then leave you with another writing sample; this one from The Lost Pages of Trevor Sunburn, and I warn you, it’s not for the kids!!!

Coming up is a discussion about my disgust with 90% of remakes, and CGI VS practical effects, and I encourage you to comment and stir up some debate in these dreaditorials. I’ll also be reviewing some older, obscure horror movies I feel you should demand you check out if you haven’t already.

Well the lawn isn’t gonna cut itself, so here’s a sample from my experimental horror/adventure/sci-fi/black comedy/surreal novel, The Lost Pages of Trevor Sunburn, which will be up for sale along with Dōguhn in the not too distant future. Continue reading


The Quest For Knowledge (Excerpt from Doguhn)

A sample of the first chapter of my first novel ( Dōguhn ), written a few years ago but recently revised and soon to available to purchase…Please take the time to read, and if you enjoy it (or even if you hate it) leave a comment and let me know!

There are individuals in this world whose desires and ravenous hunger sometimes drive them to measures one would otherwise recoil from. In many cases those actions lead to such boundaries as murder, whether for business or pleasure. The man in apartment E6, on many occasions, has taken part in both. Continue reading


This site shall be named…

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


We have such sights to show you!

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
