Horror writer, Eric S. Brown (SPACESHIPS AND GRAVEYARDS w/ Jason Brannon and John Grover, BAD MOJO, DARK KARMA) has a new book hitting the streets. DYING DAYS is a tale of zombie horror in the tradition of 28 DAYS LATER and DAWN OF THE DEAD. Feo Amante contributor and Horror writer, Brian Keene, says it's a "whirlwind of talent and good old fashion scares."
David Drake, author of the Hammer's Slammers series, calls DYING DAYS: "A striking example of a 50's horror movie without the usual happy ending"!!
From Hertzen Chimera
THE SPIDERED WEB OF HERTZEN CHIMERA
Cyber-Pulp presents an author interview book like no other! Hertzan Chimera interviews some of the great horror/dark fantasy authors around today. Join him as he interrogates Jack Ketchum, Edward Lee, Tom Piccirilli, and many others with his highly unusual bondage /journalism techniques. Then try to collect as many autographs as you can at signings and conventions to make this book a valuable collector's item.
Hertzen recalls that back in 2000, "while building up a career as a psycho-erotic horror writer, I came up with the now legendary interview technique for Terror Tales ezine where the interviewee is set inside the world of his own words. Some of the great genre gentlefolk and some of the angry young horror upstarts have fallen under the cosh of their own creations thanks to this unique interview style. With authors like Jack Ketchum, Edward Lee and Tom Piccirilli, this is the a completists must-have paperback something to cherish."
These are the writers interviewed in
So there you have it!
HAZZARD ZINGS KING AND OTHER THINGS...
On Thursday, November 20, HELLNOTES reported how this week one Bretislav Bures, a Czech immigrant, had been arrested outside Stephen King's home. Bures pleaded guilty to stalking and now faces deportation. But oops and oh! On Wednesday night, November 19, King faced a decidedly colder evil when he accepted his Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Book Foundation in New York.
In his bold and challenging remarks, King suggested the book foundation avoid making his honor a mere one-time shot for commercially successfully writers, and for the industry to open itself to reading works by writers John Grisham, Tom Clancy, Mary Higgins Clark, and others. "What do you think," King chided, "you get social academic brownie points for deliberately staying out of touch with your own culture?"
Writer Shirley Hazzard, who was also honored at the black-tie affair for her THE GREAT FIRE which claimed the coveted Fiction prize, was hardly amused. "I don't think giving us a reading list of those who are most read at this moment is much of a satisfaction," said Hazzard.
In the end, King returned to his stalker-free Maine home, richer for the august literary honor and the bucks he's pulling in on the just-released WOLVES OF THE CALLA, the latest segment in the THE DARK TOWER series.
And it was just a wicked rumor that King attended with mistletoe pinned to the tail of his tux.

HORROR/THRILLER BIRTHDAY TO -
Praise for Brian Knight & FERAL:
"Brian Knight delivers with a 'drive-in movie book.' Knight has the literary goods to create up-close high tech special effects, and so the monsters aren't cheap-o / fake and their victims really bleed and really hurt. FERAL keeps you reading. It's a page-turner." - Mort Castle, author of Moon On The Water & Nations of the Living, Nations of the Dead
"Brian Knight knows the dark territory of which he writes. The chills are authentic, the terrors so real you might find your palms bloody from dug-in fingernails. FERAL is a haunting, genuine fusion of horrific fantasy and the fearsome dreads of present-day life. FERAL bites hard and doesn't let go." - Tom Piccirilli, author of The Night Class & A Choir of Ill Children
Knight's writing shines with a dark brilliance."
"Knight is a writer to watch." - Ellen Datlow, Years Best Fantasy & Horror

under the impression that the therapy part of the mock group therapy went
a little too well, and that his fifteen minutes of fame were up. This
morning he was informed by Mr. Gass that the editing guys are reporting
that there is some pretty funny stuff. In the immortal words of Mr. Gass,
Brian Keene called him "one of the brightest horror writers to come out of England since Clive Barker" and now you too can experience the "Strange Tales" of Mark West.
