    Thanks, Robert. The man knows stuff. Yeah, sorry, meant to link it to the film. Here you go:

    Kurosawa inspired a lot of people, including Lucas (Seven Samurai) and the whole Star Wars trilogy (I don't even mention the last three films)

    Thank you all for the schooling. I appreciate it. Sometimes I feel so out of my league with you ladies and gentlemen. One quick side note - I read the thesaurus for pleasure of expanding my knowledge of the language, not to add words to my stories that no one else would understand anyway without a thesaurus. There something like 40 thousand words in our language and we only use about, what, 4 to 7 thousand. That's pitiful really.

    Sorry Craig, I hit US and thought I hit UK, Canada and Australia as well. Apparently I did it wrong and can't fix it

    Bram Stoker Award-nominated author, Jeremy C. Shipp got together recently with Evil Jester Press to edit a new anthology called, Attic Toys, which deals with, you guessed it, toys in the attic. I wrote a story about a small girl who discovers a pretty little dollhouse in her parent's home. And as you'll find out, there's more than ghosts to worry about in that attic. The anthology includes some great names in horror. Here's the full TOC:

    INSIDE THE BOXES by Jeff Strand
    DOWN IN THE WOODS TODAY by Emily C. Skaftun
    DOLLHOUSE by Craig Wallwork
    POOR ME AND TED by Kate Jonez
    A LITTLE CRIMSON STAIN by Joe McKinney
    I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE by S.S. Michaels
    DREAMS OF A RAGGED DOLL by Cate Gardner
    ATTIC DOG by David Raffin
    WHEN HARRY KILLED SALLY by Lisa Morton
    LIVING DOLL by Piers Anthony
    THE WHITE KNIGHT by Aric Sundquist
    THE DOLL TREE by Amelia Mangan
    A LITTLE TERROR by Phil Hickes
    GIVE IT A NAME by Gary McMahon
    DISCARDED by Nancy Rosenberg England
    GOOGLY by Jeremy C. Shipp
    RUBIK’S CUBE by Melanie Mascio
    A BRIGHTLY-COLORED BOX FILLED WITH STARS by Dorian Dawes
    THE TEA-SERVING DOLL by Mae Empson

    It's currently available to buy via Amazon on Kindle. Here iare the links for the US and the UK:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Attic-Toys-ebook/dp/B007ILCVQ0/

    “Jeremy C. Shipp’s boldness, daring, originality, and sheer smarts make him one of the most vital younger writers who have colonized horror literature in the past decade. Shipp’s modernist clarity, plus his willingness to risk damn near everything, put him up at the head of the pack with the very best.”
    –Peter Straub

    “Shipp’s clear, insistent voice pulls you down into the rabbit hole and doesn’t let go.”
    –Jack Ketchum
