Halloween is just around the corner again by now, and these are delightful and right up my alley.
When William Makepeace Thackeray died, near the end of 1863, he left behind a formidable library in a mansion he’d only recently designed, erected, and occupied. A few months later, his home was dismantled and his books were put to auction. On the flyleaves and margins, their new owners discovered a wealth of Thackeray’s sketches,... <a href="http://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2014/10/27/thackeray-gets-grotesque/">Read More</a> <span class="link"...

Done with my bookstore gig for the season as of yesterday. This week I'm proofing an awesome book and writing about Gatormen for +Privateer Press. There are worse ways to make a living.

Yesterday was Lovecraft's 125th birthday, so I talked a little bit about his legacy, influence, and whether I'm a Lovecraftian writer or not.

Is there a version of me who ever isn't in the mood to watch John Carpenter's The Fog? And if so, what's his problem?

Since I'm not going to Crypticon KC tomorrow after all, I'm wearing my Critters shirt today while I work.

So all The Strain had to do to get me to watch more was to add a luchador? Well, it'll get me to watch at least part of one more episode, anyway...
During a visit last The Strain’s Toronto set, Guillermo del Toro talks about his introduction of the show's new luchador character

Last night's dream: +Ross E. Lockhart had invited all the contributors to the latest Word Horde anthology to his big, creepy manor house straight out of an old dark house film, where we were all going to participate in some kind of grim, winner-take-all pie baking contest.

Story
Tagline
Orrin Grey is a skeleton who likes monsters. When asked, he claims to mostly write oubliettes.
Introduction
I'm a writer, editor, amateur film scholar, and monster expert. My first collection of supernatural stories, Never Bet the Devil & Other Warnings was released by Evileye Books in 2012. I also co-edited Fungi, an anthology of fungus-themed stories for Innsmouth Free Press, where I also write a regular column on vintage horror cinema. I'm a big, big fan of Mike Mignola, and I'll talk about him a lot around here. The rest of the time, I'll probably be talking about monster movies.

As far as circling goes, feel free to circle me. Almost everything I post is public. If I don't circle you back right away, don't feel bad. I don't always keep up with that as well as I'd like, and sometimes people get lost in the shuffle. Just drop me a comment and introduce yourself or something.
Bragging rights
John Langan once called me "the monster guy."

I just bought a pre-owned Saturn Aura from Dominic at Bud Brown Volkswagen and I love the car, and the whole experience was a real pleasure. Dominic and everyone else at Bud Brown were friendly, helpful, and no-pressure and they got us in and out with the minimum amount of fuss. I've had some bad experiences buying cars in the past, but I would definitely go back to Bud Brown the next time I need to buy a car.
