Horror aficionados take note: Metallica’s Kirk Hammett will publish his first book, Too Much Horror Business – The Kirk Hammett Collection, later this year. “This is my gift to all the other horror nerds out there who are just like me,” Hammett said in a statement. “It’s been made with great love for all the many characters and movies which guided me through childhood, into adulthood and which still keep me on track today.”
CBS News recently sat down with the young, ambitious writer who came up with the idea. Author, screenwriter and producer Seth Grahame-Smith said that the premise is completely ridiculous.

A light touch is the last phrase one would use to describe Sadie Jones’s approach to writing fiction — until now. With The Uninvited Guests, her third novel, Jones has set out to create a work with a dramatically different tone.
To be effectively creepy, a film needs to establish a certain atmosphere; it needs to draw you in and make you care.

We are now accepting submissions for a new horror/weird anthology Urban Occult. This will explore the seedier side of towns and cities. The dark places that aren’t known to just everyone. Places that exist inside abandoned buildings, underground clubs, or perhaps Aunt Mavis’ 23rd floor apartment.
Taking Submissions: The Ghosts of DC Since this is an election year I thought that it might be interesting to publish a horror anthology about politicians. Throughout history many of our political figures have suffered painful events or tragic deaths. What we are looking for is stories that twist this event – I.e. What if the doctors that treated George Washington were vampires, or the reason it took so long to bury Abraham Lincoln was because he kept wandering off. Don’t change history but feel free to play it.
