    I've got a couple of things to announce that I'm very excited about.

    My new novella, Infinity House, is now out from Gallows Press, a brand new imprint of Sideshow Press. Maggots and flies and rotten meat! Yummy!


    Also, my new novella, All You Can Eat, is now out from Deadite Press. Insatiable, cannibalistic obese people! Lots of disgusting fun!


    Also, check out Sinister Grin Press's new releases at www.sinistergrinpress.com

    Good to be here, guys. Looks like an awesome group of folks!

    Thanks for sharing that. But, have to say, Blair Witch Project had me, had me, had me, ooooo lost me. I thought that movie started out with great potential. The first half hour or 40 minutes really had me ready for action. In my opinion, it quickly lost its edge and the acting became even more stiff when they couldn't find the map. From that point on, it was boring and laughable. I guess the crying, cussing and running through the night with the wobbly camera shot was supposed to ratchet up the terror, but it just seemed stupid to me.

    Once again, the cheese walks alone on this. Almost everyone I know loved Blair Witch.

    I've been away from these board for about a year now... it's hard to get on while teaching at school, and I always play catch-up come summer. Congrats to everyone with work coming out or recently released. These covers look great!

    Immortal Ink Publishing presents...The Portrait of Alatiel Salazar



    When Gabriel Holland’s beloved Helena vanishes from his life, he journeys to the home of disgraced artist Cristian Salazar, the man he holds responsible for her disappearance and the death of several friends. Once in the town of Carliton, Gabriel finds only malice and mystery in the tales told by the few brave enough to speak ill of Salazar and the sinister Cousin Beatriz. And within shadows, in the guise of night, walks Alatiel, the creature Helena has become…


    "For admirers of Dracula and The Woman in Black."

    "Few people now write with the same understanding of Gothic fiction & Horror as Steven Katriel."

    "Easily the most original book I've read this year."

    "A masterful tour de force of Gothic mystery and the macabre."

    One of the best books I've read all year. CATACLYSM BABY is dark, lyrical, post-apocalyptic stories of birth, myth, deformity and fable. This is a must read for fans of literary fiction with a sharp edge. I've been reading Matt for years, and this is some of his best work.

    did you read the review? if that doesn't sell you, i can't do much more. it's kind of Cormac McCarthy meets Clive Barker.

    yeah, BM was excellent. i've only read that, The Road and Outer Dark, but loved them all. No Country is also great, i hear, the movie was excellent. Child of God is another strong one, i hear.
