Hi, my name is Mike.
I’m a consummate fan of everything horror: movies, books, art, collectables, and horror culture.
I’m also a published author of horror fiction with over 50 short stories and articles in books, magazine’s, publications, and on horror websites. If you want to know more about me as an author click on The Author Page.
I mostly review horror films and books here on this blog, but I also like to bring attention to horror collectables, model-kits, artwork and artists. I will sometimes feature stories or galleries of interest to the horror fan and writer. True stories and incidents, real life places, people, and creatures – myths, legends, cryptoids and monsters can all be found here.
I rate films on a scale of 1 to 5
Anything over a 2.5 is a good entertaining movie in my book.
If it’s more than half good, that ain’t half bad…
Things I like:
Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft, Stephen King, Thomas Ligotti, Franz Kafka, D.F.Lewis, Richard Matheson, Arthur Machen, Joe Hill, Steve Resnic-Tem, Clive Barker
More things I like:
Nice blog. Just found out about it. Sounds good to me. I love the Outer Limits. I will be reading from now on because all I watch is horror movies. Don’t know why and sci-fi original movies usually are funny rather than scary.
I agree, very nice blog. I love all your “likes”, “do not like” and though I rarely read “real books” any more, I love the works of Poe, Lovecraft and Matheson.
And oh, I added your link to my blogroll 🙂 Cheers!
Thanks mike, I should add you to my blogroll too… as soon as I figure out where it is…?
Nice blog, look forward too reading more

thanks so much Lauren. I just did one about 2 weeks ago so I probably won’t go thru all that again so soon. But I do appreciate it.
I enjoyed poking around your site…lots of interesting reads. If you enjoy the macabre then you might like my post ‘Spirits Seeking Justice: From Beyond the Grave’. Thanks for visiting my blog and for the follow!

I don’t like sparkly vampires either…
Just wanted to say you’ve got a great blog, keep up the excellent work.

Hey there Mike! Just clicking around the blogosphere and commenting on blogs that I think are fun and interesting, and you’re one of them. October is my birthday month, so consider this an invitation to my month-long birthday party. Hope to see you over at That’s So Jacob sometime!
I nominated you for a Liebster Award…
…but I see a ½ dozen other bloggers beat me to it. Didn’t mean to body pile you,
In any case, your site rocks! 😀
Thanks so much, I appreciate the acknowledgement. I did many of these some time ago, so I hope you don’t think me snobbish if I don’t participate. I have so many posts lined up that I haven’t published yet, I hope to get to them all by the end of the year. but thanks again 🙂
NP and you’re most welcome. Getting the award is nice, but the nominating of the others made me squeamish as not everyone’s into doing them and some people get tons of them – it’s a hot mess.
I was more interested in letting you know I really enjoy your site. 😀
Thanks so much, as you must know I like your site too, as I spend a lot of time reading, liking and commenting on your posts 🙂
I do, and I thank you. 🙂
Hiya, Mike. Wanted to stop by and express my thanks for you liking my post on HNR. I cant wait to take a look around here — looks like you got some good stuff.
