For a very, very short amount of time, back in the mid-1990â€™s, just after Headbangerâ€™s Ball was cancelled, there was a show on MTV called SuperRock (bear with me here, this will make sense shortly). Rather than only playing heavy metal videos, SuperRock covered a wider variety. On a normal night, you might catch a Bad Religion video, then a Faith No More video, and then a Public Enemy video. They essentially tapped into … Continue reading

If youâ€™re a fan of horror fiction, and you arenâ€™t familiar with the work of Stephen Graham Jones (which you should be, since I interviewed him here back in April of 2013), nowâ€™s the time to get started. Heâ€™s got fifteen novels (including Demon Theory, The Last Final Girl, and The Least of My Scars), five story collections (Zombie Sharks with Metal Teeth being one of my favorites, both in content and in … Continue reading
From the depths of night, the thing creeps along the ocean of imagination, pulling itself with talons jagged from too much murder. Hunger fuels the hunt as it searches for the light. Its hiss drowned out by the rock and roll music that thunders from man-sized speakers. A Human throng sways to the primal rhythms. Here and there are the lights it craves. With a cry, it launches from the back of its human … Continue reading

A collection of thirteen tales with a common theme surrounding the depraved, demented fuelled with dread:
Mister Pockets A Pine Deed Story By Jonathan Maberry-Lefty, a twelve year old boy suspects there is an ominous presence lurking within their sleepy town.
With issue number one, Jamais Vu established itself as a strong newcomer to the dark fiction scene. We got short stories and poetry, movie and book reviews, and a few articles covering a little bit of everything. What they did was not only bring some great new as well as veteran voices together, but also set high expectations for issue number two of what is, admittedly, an experiment, a test run, if you will. … Continue reading
I wasnâ€™t particularly sure about reviewing this one. After all, itâ€™s a short, cheap oneshot to draw in an audience for the followup novel (The Red Eye) and I already reviewed that one. But, due to the huge difference in tone, structure and effect between the two, I decided that it warranted me chiming in on.
Sam Brody is a bit of an ass. He also likes to harangue people via his … Continue reading

By Gabrial Campisi
1 Taking the Next Step
Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where we are all going. If I need to finish quoting our dear Criswell, then I weep for that same future. Dearly, do I weep. Yet, as cheesy as the line is, none of us can deny the draw of a bit of life spoilers.
We want to know what will be, regardless of how little it boots to resist both … Continue reading
It’s everything you never wanted to hear or that perhaps you or somebody you knew suffered through, whether from the human misery of this universe or a criminality intruding from the supernatural.Â Â -from Essay I: The Myth of Falling
Â I’ve been known to mutter that one of the best reason to create art, to spin the patently unreal out of vapors and dust, is to process the incongruities of reality. To reflect and refract … Continue reading

â€śWhat is that?â€ť I whispered.
â€śLooks like an ears,â€ť the Colonel replied, staring at the globby thing by his foot.
â€śNo, not specifically, Colonel.â€ť I swallowed and swayed. â€śWhat is that, in general?â€ť
â€śA dead body.â€ť The Colonel snorted. â€śOr parts there of.â€ť
Usually, I am pretty clear on how I feel about … Continue reading
Ever since reading Gabino Iglesiasâ€™ Gutmouth, Iâ€™ve been more and more interested in the New Bizarro Author Series (NBAS for short) put together by Eraserhead Press. Without beating a dead horse, what they do is give a chance to promising new authors who havenâ€™t yet published their first novel.
With five to seven releases each year, we get a fresh taste of weird and wild writers we may or may not have already been … Continue reading
