Drinking Blood

It’s official, vampires just ruin everything.


I’m not sure eternal life would be worth the cost of having to wear all those frills šŸ˜¦


…and now for something moderately terrifying… but cool.. oh so cool!

The most nihilistic thing you’ll read all week

This is something I may neverĀ get out of my head. It’s brilliantĀ but terrible and Sharing is good, right?


You too should suffer this lodged in your frontal lobe. Like that fragment of popcorn lodged between your tooth and gum that ruins the movie for you. The persistent irritation that you know is thereĀ but evades excavation by tongue or finger. A brilliantĀ irritation. A brain pearl.

Something Broke – Flash Fiction

Something broke. Thatā€™s about the only way to describe it. About thirty years ago some underlying logic in our reality simply failed. Maybe we broke physics with the latest in bigger and brighter colliders, maybe god just died of loneliness. Whatever the reason, the immutable rules of cause and effect, the division between what the real and the imaginary, all seemed to begin to fail.

The dead donā€™t always stay dead anymore, you have to convince them. As for children, well let’s just say that there is nothing more terrifying than a child with an overactive imagination.


Valentine’s Day

He knows your inner secrets, he can awaken your deepest desires.

Come in. Worship at his feet. Be adored. Be consumed.


Have fun you lovebirds… I could just eat you all up šŸ™‚

2 Lines of Horror (Pt4)

A little something appropriate to the season…

Sometimes, in the name of scientific exploration, we push the boundaries to try and get to the truth. Now after my 132nd consecutive day without sleep I’ve reached the point where I can see the terrible things that lurk between the cracks in reality and I fear that they are becoming aware of me.

A little something appropriate to the season…

The laughter itself doesn’t worry me, it’s a friendly chuckle, almost sweet really. I just wish it wasn’t coming from the drains.


2 Lines of Horror (Pt2)

A little something appropriate to the season…

There is a form of pure evil that can not be denied, cannot be constrained, can not be fought. It’s why I no longer have any mirrors in the house.


2 Lines of Horror (Pt1)

A little something appropriate to the season…

Every night I make sure the windows and doors are locked. I’m terrified that one night they’ll get out.


What is Dreadpunk?

Source: What is Dreadpunk? A quick guide to a new subgenre

So the question becomes, “so what’s the modern version of this?”, cyberpunk with horror undertones? How do we weave a believable world where mythic horror combines with nascent technological advancements? “Sure my eyeball is bionic and my sight is digitally enhanced, but I can still see the nameless horror lurking on the edges of my vision.”

Which reminds me, got to get back to writing this weekend. That and I’ve got two works to Beta read… going to be a busy long weekend.


Friday the 13th: Part I

First Friday the 13th this year. So to help you survive the upcoming zombie apocalypse, here is some information that may prove essential. “If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.” –Ā Sun Tzu

FYI: Doesn’t apply to my (the unseen) zombies… they eat everything.
