This short story was inspired by Clive Barker’s Nightbreed. It has never been published and never seen by the eyes of the public…until now.
In every generation a slayer is born. Oh wait…wrong opening line. In every generation, a plague of writers is visited upon… Again, sorry. Most people assume the act of writing is as simple as sitting in front of a computer and ralphing out page after page of coherent words. If it were that easy, there’d […]
From Imaquolatta’s Irreverent Blog, she titles her review for Hell’s Muse “Heavenly Writing on a Hellish Subject” and goes on to say: “The story is in several layers, a novel within a novel. The characters come at you in snapshots, mostly because this dark carnival ride moves extremely quickly. The story flies. Jack’s writing at times […]
In the first bought of the Monster Mash, Freddy Krueger put a stop to any possible sparkly, shimmery vampire shenanigans. But this time, Freddy is up against a foe with considerably less teen appeal.

Can you believe it’s almost the middle of September? And can you believe I am less than two weeks from participating in my first-ever Scarefest! I’ll be right alongside the likes of Malcolm McDowell, Doug Bradly, and (shudder) Clive Barker! My participation in Scarefest will be as a vendor to sell my wares. Won’t you […]

You may not know this, but I’m a pretty big Clive Barker fan. His books, his art, his movies. One of my favorite movies of Clive’s is Nightbreed. This particular movie seemed destined for greatness. It was based on the Barker story Cabal — which was incredible fodder for film. But then the studio got […]

I love a good scare. And seriously, who doesn’t? Being frightened is a catharsis you don’t find with any other emotional response to an external stimulus. And even better when you’re being scared out of your underpants, nightgown, boxers, or skinsuit, when tucked in safely under mounds of blanket. And as a writer of horror, […]
For anyone that knows me, and knows me well, you know that I have this ridiculous infatuation with Clive Barker. He is, as most would say, my idol. And unlike most fans in the Barkerverse, my author-crush is not simply because of his creation of one the finest characters in all of horror-dom — Pinhead. […]
