    Richard, Flowers for Jessica was certainly in the right publication. I had to read it twice to make certain I caught it all the first time. Very creepy, very weird, very beautiful. But, sometimes it's only in the weird that truth can be discovered. I loved it. Bravo.

    In case you missed it I have an article up at FLAVORWIRE on the "Ten Essential Neo-Noir Authors." I'm sure you'll recognize a LOT of names on this list.

    Really enjoyed the article Richard. I have to admit that I knew little to nothing about the genre before reading it, so none of the names rung a bell with me. I'll definitely use this article as a gateway into the world of Neo-Noir, as long as I can return to the real one afterwards.

    thanks, liam. neo-noir isn't that far from horror, really, and definitely has horrific moments. i hope you enjoy the authors on this list, so many great novels and stories out there by them.

    Great article. Only problem is now I have more authors I want to read. I have read a few of them. It will be great to discover more new writers.

    I just found a whole bunch of children's books by Mr. Cain and Transubstantiate by Mr. Thomas in my Kindle PC app! Looks like I'm gonna be spreading my wings on ebooks this year.

    They've been the catalyst for many a good time for my children and I. We hope you enjoy them too.

    I'm working on a few different projects at the moment to submit to a Reddit.com e-horror collection as well as update the blog where I post my short-stories. I'm really just trying to make a display at the moment, get my name out there. I know Reddit.com and Facebooks aren't exactly hives of great thinking but I have to start somewhere. Anyway, I hope you enjoy what you read and I can keep you posted if you decide to "like" the Facebook page.

    Is that a shot from Alucarda?

    Just read Old God. Pretty fun read, with a rather random yet humourous end. Keep it up.

    That is indeed man, one of my favourite possession films.

    Thank you, Old God was written as flash fiction bit for Reddit. Finished in one sitting and just decided to throw the little curve ball at the end because I wasn't too precious about the main body of story.
