Dreadful Tales Weekend Roundup

This was the busiest week yet at Dreadful Tales.  We had two updates about some free e-books, introduced you to the newest member of the DT family and gave you reviews for some truly great books.

There was so much going onthat we understand if you missed an article or two so we present you with the Dreadful Tales Weekend Roundup.  This is your chance to catch up on all the fun we had here at the Dreadful Tales offices over the last week.

Check it out after the jump.

First we would like to give big hugs and sloppy kisses to our newest staffer, Shelagh.  Shelagh was the mastermind behind the always amazing, Kinderscares, and she brings her knowledge of all things scary to Dreadful Tales.  If you don’t believe us, check out her article on some chilling children’s literature.

There were also links to get your grubby little claws on free copies of the Dreadful favorite, Personal Demons by Greg Lamberson and a free preorder for Jeff Strand’s Specimen 313.  These are limited time offers so get on it!

Pat shared some memories about Borders and asked that you do the same in the comments section.  Check it out!

Colum had some news about Annotated, a film that every book lover should be excited for.

It was also announced that we would be the place for all of your Horrorfind needs.  We will have some great reviews, coverage and interviews for the weekend so stay tuned .  If you are attending the con, look for us wearing our DreadfulTales.com shirts.  We’d love to meet you!

Finally, we reviewed some great books:

Colum gave you reviews for Kelli Owen’s Waiting Out The Winter and The Neighborhood. Kelli is an up-and-coming author who has Dreadful Tales incredibly excited.  She is the real deal folks so we strongly encourage you to seek out her work.

Keeping with the novella theme, Pat reviewed the Bryan Smith bloodbath, Bloodrush and Colum gave some well deserved praise to Robert Ford’s Samson and Denial.

Colum also reviewed the short story collection by WD Gagliani and David Benton, Mysteries and Mayhem.

Phew!  We weren’t messing around when we said it was our busiest week yet but things are only going to get crazier as we move forward!

About Pat Dreadful

Father of three. Impregnator of one. Pat lives in the backwoods of Pennsylvania where he splits his time between moonshining and moonlighting. He used to be the sole proprietor of a funky little site called Grade Z Horror but jumped at the chance to work with Meli and Colum. He was raised on King and Crichton but quickly found true salvation in the works of Ketchum and Laymon. When not selling plasma to afford those highly sought after Jeff Strand limited editions, Pat can be found sitting on his back porch with a pipe full of Perique and the sounds of summer coming through a beat up transistor radio. Simply put, he is a true ramblin’ boy of pleasure. The books that have shaped Pat’s warped lil’ ol’ mind have included Dweller by Jeff Strand, It by Stephen King, Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon, The Traveling Vampire Show by Richard Laymon and The Girl Next Door by Jack Ketchum. Pat is always on the lookout for a good coming-of-age yarn so shoot your suggestions to PatDreadful@gmail.com You can also follow his unsavory exploits over at theblackwoodsbible.wordpress.com
