It was a challenging year for me in a lot of ways, so I didn’t get to spend as much time writing as I would have liked. However I did get a few stories published thanks to some generous folks who saw them as something more than just the paranoid rantings of a burned-out conspiracy theorist who’d had too much of the local Colorado crop. (I mean, sure, they ARE that, but maybe also something more.) Continue reading “Auld Lang Slime: Let’s get this portajohn fire behind us”
Ever play a game too scary to complete? Ever been haunted in the hours after the TV flickered out, thinking of how scary it would be to re-enter that haunted mansion, that bio-weapons lab, that fog-shrouded town?
7th Guest. Splatterhouse. Resident Evil. Silent Hill. Doom. Blood. Harvester. Super Ghouls n’ Ghosts. Castlevania. Dark Souls. Bloodborne.
These titles and more have inspired our newest anthology: Terror in 16-bits. Fifteen spooky levels of ghastly fun and frights, inspired by the horror video games you’ve come to know and love… and shudder to think about.
Terror in 16-bits: now you’re playing… with TERROR!
And stay tuned for interviews with our authors in the next season of Spooklights! Podfade ain’t got nothing on us, we promise!
Pre-orders for our new video game-inspired horror anthology are now live! Check out our online store to place your order.
For those of you who prefer to shop with Big Amazon, check back in a couple of days for Kindle and paperback versions!
The signal’s gone a little quiet out of the Muzzleland Press numbers station lately, but rest assured we’ve been hard at work. TERROR IN 16-BITS is *done* and the books are ordered for NecronomiCon Providence, so you’ll be able to snatch a copy there at a discount before wider release after the con.
I’ve also started editing a brand-new project, a novel that’s equal parts horror and … well, I’ll let you guess.
Our podcast Spooklights is on pause until September, when we’ll return with some very special guests and episodes full of simple moral lessons like “don’t lie to your parents” and “cosmic supernatural evil is real and you should take it more seriously.”
As we’re gearing up for our next book and saving our pennies for Necronomicon, we’re dropping prices to get our titles into more hands.
The Lesser Swamp Gods of Little Dixie by Jonathan Raab and Hive by Alex Smith are now only 99 cents each for Kindle. For $2 that’s two tales of terror.
Hive is the story of a couple who moves to a too-good-to-be-true apartment building in New York City following their abortion. When images of bizarre medical experiments appear on their television, they soon discover they’ve entered a surreal world of biological horrors and animalistic violence.
The Lesser Swamp Gods of Little Dixie follows a conspiracy theory radio show host turned county sheriff into the heart of haunted southern Oklahoma. Corn cob monsters, inhuman bog ghouls from hell, and warring witch-cults are all out for blood in this pulp horror adventure.
Now through Thursday! FREE for your Kindle: The Hillbilly Moonshine Massacre. I hope ya dig it—it’s the most personal thing I’ve written, and it’s one hell of a yarn, if I do say so myself!
