The website’s recent launch featured an interview with the legendary creator of Bubba-Ho-Tep, Joe R. Lansdale. In addition, it spotlighted and reviewed two very powerful horror films which are currently on the horror film festival circuit: Tales of Poe and Circus of the Dead.
The site’s Managing Editor, author and filmmaker, Terry M. West, announced that Halloween Forevermore is a professional-rate paying market for horror fiction writers. West added, “We have received a wonderful response from the Halloween/horror community. We, in turn, are showing our support for the genre by providing a paying venue for horror fiction authors. We were thrilled to get support on Twitter from the one and only Anne Rice! She recently shared one of our original articles with her followers. We appear to be receiving plenty of notice from Halloween and horror lovers around the globe, and we couldn’t be happier.”

She was SICK of her job. She wanted to opt out of Corporate Life.
She stared at the old dilapidated house – buckled, faded, peeling. The aura sucked her in as she walked towards the crooked front door.
She dreamed of being a famous painter catching all the nuances of this peculiar, ugly house. Make lots of money – get out of the daily crappy routine.
Smiling to herself, she pushed open the door and stepped in…
Falling through empty space…
She landed somewhere. Her leg broken. A whispery, slavering voice assailed her.
Opt out? Opt out? Opt Out.
Chain of Evil: The JournalStone Guide to Writing Darkness, by Dr. Michael R. Collings, approaches the question of writing from multiple directions. The essays in this volume range from the abstract and philosophical to the concrete and specific; from reminiscences as they relate to the art of writing to near-scholarly studies of the nature of genre, in particular horror; and from general discussions of literary forms and what they can achieve to practical advice on where to place commas, exclamation marks, and quotation marks.
Dr. Collings’ expertise emerges from nearly thirty years teaching writing and composition at the university level, gaining acclaim as an astute voice in science-fiction, fantasy, and horror studies, as well as from the more than one hundred books—novels, scholarship, collections of poetry and short fiction, criticism, and bibliographies—he has published over the past four decades.
SAN FRANCISCO, August 29, 2014 – JournalStone Publishing (JSP) President, Christopher C. Payne is pleased to announce the acquisition of the award winning site, HorrorReview.com – Home of the world’s best reviews for Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy.
The Horror Review Site was one of the first Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy movie review websites. Started in March of 1999, the site only featured genre reviews in a short format to make for the on the go reader. In 2002 the format changed to the longer basic reviews, featured more content such as book reviews, interviews, and essays. The crew also grew as the sites creator, Horror Bob (Robert L. Brodmerkel) had a staff that featured members of the film industry, college professors, mega fans and even fiction writers. The site respectfully ended its run in 2013, after thirteen years on the internet. Now it will rise from the grave, being reanimated by the fine folks at JournalStone Publishing.
Horror Bob (Robert L. Brodmerkel) is the founder of The Horror Review (horrorreview.com) Now that the touch has been pasted on, his new venture is working on the popular Web series “In Fear Of”. Created by Scott W. Perry (Insatiable, Once, When I was Dead), and now in it’s second season; each episode of the web series revolves around a clinical phobia. Robert L. Brodmekel is now a series producer along with Perry and Tony DeBenedetto (Jacob, She Rises). He is also the writer/director of the episode Agoraphobia, the first science fiction entry into the series starring Anne Bobby (Clive Barker’s Nightbreed).
