It’s been a long time since the Zombie Radio Podcast ended. I found a strange comfort and joy in bringing this character back to life, even though his circumstances have clearly changed.

Moments From My Worlds: Zombie Radio


By Dora Abel Rain. Heavy, full drops of rain. The kind of rain that soaked through clothes and seeped into the very bones, making the victim vulnerable to colds. Roselyn, however, was used to it. She had been caught up in worse storms than this, and she had also been […]

Time Claims Us All



By Sean Cochrane Halloween isn’t just my favorite holiday, it’s the greatest holiday in the greatest month. I have the privilege of being an October baby. Being born five days before Halloween is awesome for a kid, especially one that loves all the creepy spooky stuff. I’d imagine it made […]

Best Birthday Ever


by Marian Allen Halloween made it so easy. Baba Yaga could remember when parents kept their children indoors on All Hallows Eve, huddled around a fire, with fearsomely carved and lit root vegetables on either side of the door, treats left on the stoop for the spirits. Now, the evening […]

Trick and Treat and Trick and Treat


By Sara Marian               I watch as the living cross the threshold yet again, bearing with them all their worldly possessions. First two women, one elderly. Then a man, a youth, and a girl no longer quite a child, but not yet a woman. The younger of the first pair of […]

Keep the Lights On



By Brent Abell Gwen kicked the beer can off the sidewalk and watched it bounce into the gutter. Dust swirled around her ankles in the cooling night while the echo from the can faded into silence. The tattered witch costume Gwen wore kept the chill from reaching her bones no […]

Light One For Me


Hell’s Muse is a very complex horror novel I wrote a few years ago. This is a short film I created from that story … a look inside the mind and life of the main character, Bob.

Moments From My Worlds: Hell’s Muse


By Leila Toba Autumn leaves scuttled upon the driveway, in a helpless battle between the gusty winds and the excited crowd of women that crunched their expensive heels on the concrete. It was the most exciting night of the week, or, at least the most exciting night of the week […]

Change



By C.A. Verstraete “Stop the car, Mommy!” “Mandy? What’s wrong, honey? Are you sick?” Alarmed, Cass Wilkes glanced in the rearview window at her daughter and quickly pulled the aging Buick to the curb. “No, I’m okay. Look, Mommy, look!” The six-year-old bounced in her seat and struggled to release […]

The Dollhouse


By Angel Vargas A lab coat clad pediatrician with a furrowed brow and pursed lips looked me dead in the face while my one month old son wailed and thrashed in my arms. In this situation, there was a word no new, sleep deprived parent should ever want to hear. […]

Family Reunion


By Godfrey Davenport Bubonic Tonic Death stalked               as it often does through mindless streets it roamed Death talked               as it often does and sent its men on home Death walked               as it often does and sang a mindless tune Death balked               as it often does, diverted by the runes                             One […]

Three Halloween Poems



by S.H. Roddey Winston Julius Damascus, III and his lovely wife Isobel stood on their porch, glaring toward the street with disgust. Winston surveyed the gaudy, garish Halloween decorations adorning their neighbors’ houses, his lip curling to reveal perfect, bright-white teeth. It was tacky. Ugly. And wholly inappropriate in contrast […]

The Neighbors


By Jeff Davis I had a Halloween party epiphany this year. I told my wife that I’ll go as Captain America and she’ll go as Black Widow. With her beautiful red hair and porcelain skin, all she needs to look the part is the tight black suit. My wife muttered […]

8 Pounds of Pressure


I have a super-secret project I’m about to embark on that I think could spark a revolution in how stories are told. Listen in on why I believe this is way overdue.
