A Taste of Texas Part 7: The Conclusion is a Love Letter

Highway 299 high up in the Trinity Alps. Nighttime. Nobody on the road. On the side of a mountain looking down into a valley as my girlfriend puked her guts up on the road’s shoulder. All those years of studying Leatherface and his clan led to this moment. All those years of wondering why the

Halloween Boy — A Year-round Holiday Story

Like any kid, I liked Halloween as much as you’re supposed to. Come October 1st, I picked out a wacky costume, geared up for thirty or so days and then walked the streets filling a bag or bucket with candy that would probably only get half eaten. Then, on November 1st, it was over, I

Cujo

As a novel, Cujo works. There is some clutter to it, sure, but overall it keeps the tension ratcheted very high and has a satisfying end. For a story that is essentially about a woman and a child trapped in a car it sure packs a punch. Even the film did a fine job, getting

All The Rage

If you are a Stephen King fan, you know of Rage. It is a novel about a teenager who takes his class hostage and shoots his teacher. I first read the novel in The Bachman Books, which King wrote under the Richard Bachman pseudonym. It is not King’s best work, but it is a fascinating

Let’s Talk About IT: Part II 🎈

Thank you Stephen King and Steven Weber. Thank you for the best storytelling experience, of any medium, I’ve ever had. My face is still dried out with tears as I write this. Thank you Stephen for writing the damn thing of course, and thank you Steven for the 45-hour-long reading! That’s right, I only made

Complete List of Monsters That IT Took the Form Of 🎈

I’ve finally finished the book, carefully making note of all the monsters that IT appears as throughout. Hopefully this manages to be the complete, definitive list.

New Horror Novel: The Haunting of Cabin Green

In 2007, I took a vacation to a small green cabin in Northern Michigan. The setting inspired me, and I wrote most of the first draft of The Haunting of Cabin Green: A Modern Gothic Horror Novel while sitting inside the cabin. During the next 10 years, I launched a career as a Dark Art
