Long time no see, Dreadful readers! There has been a lot of activity in the scattered home offices of DT. We’re keeping busy with everything from babies to job promotions and all the other life stuff in between, but we haven’t forgotten our beloved readers or the dark lit that brought us together. We hope to ease back into the swing of things little by little and find the puss-oozing pulse of what’s hot in horror fiction once again. Most importantly, we look forward to reconnecting with you all.
First, I want to kick off our first post of October with our Book of the Month announcement. We completely slept through September’s book A Bad Day for Voodoo (sorry, Jeff Strand!) which I take full responsibility for since the Book Club has always been my baby. Although I’m a week and a couple days late there is still plenty of time to dive into our October book.
This month we are reading Life Rage by the Bram Stoker-nominated L.L. Soares. You might remember Soares’ short story “Sawbones” from April’s Book (anthology) of the Month Zippered Flesh: Tales of Body Enhancements Gone Bad! Soares’ contribution to the anthology was met with rave reviews and he definitely stole most of the limelight from the other authors, which is no small feat given the talent included in that collection.
Soares is also a film critic and runs a horror movie review site Cinema Knife Fight which has a whole buttload of talented writers I think many of you will recognize.
Please join us this month for the October reading of L.L. Soares’ horror novel Life Rage. One reader dubbed this “a fix for those of us who thrive on darkness.”
