On September 19, 2017, the world will shudder and the skies will rain fire because that is the day my next book is hitting stores NEAR YOU! Paperbacks from Hell is my first non-fiction book and it charts the history of the horror paperback publishing boom that started in the early Seventies with the release of Rosemary's Baby, The Exorcist, and The Other and died in the early Nineties as serial killers lured horror publishing into their murder basements. I interviewed lots of authors, and lots of artists, to tell the story of how for one, brief 24 year period, bookstores, drugstores, and supermarket spinner racks were awash in books about horny Bigfoots, Nazi leprechauns, killer maggots, and rabbis blasting KGB demons with super-shofars. Featuring never-before-published artwork by some of the mad geniuses who painted these gorgeous covers, Paperbacks from Hell follows the horror paperback boom from its roots in books about Satanic possession, to its flirtation with killer kids, evil animals, weird science, cursed real estate, and beyond!
Also, I write a lot of book reviews of trashy fiction, both horror and otherwise, which you can read here in a special little creep-dungeon called BOOK REVIEWS OF THE DAMNED.
I've also spent way too much of my life doing a massive Stephen King re-read which lurks over on Tor. As of May, 2017 it's only a few books away from being finished (32 down, 10 to go) and I should be putting a bullet in the back of its skull this summer.
