Horror Addict's Guide to Life



Some years ago I mentioned my association with a group called Horror Addicts Dot Net . During my time interacting with them, my story, Night of the Harvestmen, was featured on one of their monthly podcasts. It is that story, I Believe, that won me their First in Blood Award for one season. I don't remember what year this was, and due to time factors, I don't have time to de the research. Still, I believe that I posted about it somewhere on this blog. 

Several year ago Horror Addicts published a book entitled A Horror Addict's Guide to Life. Now, the group is celebrating the public of a second book called Horror Addicts Guide to Life 2. This book is the love child of editor Emerian Rich, who did a tremendous amount of work in making it all happen. The publication also contains some of the work I did for the group. No, it doesn't contain any of my fiction, but rather, several non-fiction articles I wrote for them. 

Today, the group is launching its celebration of the book's publication, so this is my little part in helping with that good cause.  I strive to keep this blog non commercial, but will compromise with that rule a bit by including some further info, including purchasing info below. 

Congratulations, Horror Addicts on a job well done!
