Welcome to The Eat Your Heart Out event! It’s Valentines day and for those that don’t like to celebrate in the traditional, Halmarkian manner, we have an event sure to fill your blackened heart with the love of zombies, demons, vampires, and much more.
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.
Ladies and gentlefunk, get ready for something entirely special and delicious. It is my absolute pleasure to welcome to the Dark Hayride, fellow zpoc author, Claire C Riley. Let’s spare the intros and get to the juicy bits.
In honor of Friday the 13th, I am giving away ebook copies of both I Zombie I and Klockwerk Kabaret for FREE! That’s right, Dec 13th and 14th you can get free ebook copies of these books to nom and slurp. Do it now. Now, I say! Oh, you want links? Sure, I’ll give you links: I Zombie I and Klockwerk Kabaret.
As most of you know, I have a vested interest in this subject. Why? First and foremost, I placed the survival of mankind on the shoulders of one Bethany Nitshimi. I did this knowing I might lose the attention of some fans of the genre — a fact I am perfectly fine with. Why? For so long, women in post-apocalyptic literature have been relegated to eye candy, relationship fodder, damsels in distress, or (on occasion) a ripped-dress wearing clone with unrealistic fighting abilities (played to the nines by Milla Jovavitch). Some may call “bias” on this; but, to me, the continued portrayal of women as a weakness in the apocalypse, is an insufferable insult.
Hell’s Muse was published a while ago. That book is the beginning of the Nameless Saga and will spawn plenty of nasty, terror-filled, horror-filled nightmares. The second of the series will begin soon…until then, I want to offer up for your pleasure, a lead-in short that will serve as the underpinnings of the third novel in the series. And so, without further adieu, I give you…The Devil Inside.
Have you ever had those moments where the lights are on, but everything is as dark as pitch? If you know of which I speak, then these lullabies for the damned should ring a bell so true you might wonder if you can trust yourself with the lights out. Come into my vicious parlor and see if you can escape the snapping of your own sanity.
As I type, the 2013 Coffin Hop is undead and kicking! If you’re unaware of this wondrous time of year, it is a celebration of authors of the dark fantastic. Horror authors of every bent collect together on one site so you, the reader, can enjoy works sure to get your skin to shrivel on its meat.
The Coffin Hop is the web’s most awesome literary haunted house. 70+ bloggers, artists, writers, and Halloween freaks sharing horror tales and spirited fun. It’s so amahz frightening, even Pinhead and Freddy Kruger are afraid to peek their heads in.
And what’s on the slab for this year? Read on MacDuff!
I wanted to give everyone a treat before the most hallowed of nights arrives. This treat is from the up-coming eighth novel in the I Zombie series, Cry Zombie Cry. If you’ve read enough the series, you know how fond I am of nightmare scenes. Here is one I’m confident will have you wanting more of this novel to nom! This scene is later on in the book (Chapter 20). I won’t give anything away (and there is a LOT to give away at this point) other than to say the nightmares do serve a purpose. MU…HA…HA.
It’s that time of the year my lovelies — October. That means but one thing, Halloween is right around the corner. And although many/most of us are too old to enjoy the age-old tradition of trick or treating, that doesn’t mean we can’t have some adult-flavored fun on this most glorious of holiday seasons!
With that in mind, I’ve come up with a few ideas for you to rip off so your Halloween is as glorious as the Zombie Kings! I’ll run this as a series…so as to not inundate the jackverse with information. So, what in the hell am I blathering on about? On with the ideas!

And so, without further adieu, I give to you, my loyal readers, my top 13 all time favorite horror films.
