Been a little busy since returning from World Horror, but I finally got a chance to post a wrap-up.

The way I assume other people must feel when they watch the new Star Wars trailer, that's how I feel whenever Mike Mignola draws Aliens.

In which I utterly destroy my horror film street cred: 
A couple of weeks ago, I saw It Follows, which I liked, but was also really disappointed by. Since the majority of people seem to have loved it, and just about everyone has already seen it and form...

About a week ago, +Daniel Mills tagged me to list "seven things about my writing that you may not already know." Today, I remembered that he had done so, and threw together a list. I'm not normally one to tag people on these things, but I mentioned +Nathan Ballingrud in my seven things list, so he's a good one to tag here.

Tomorrow kicks off not only the launch of +Sean Demory's _Slow Boat to Fast City_, featuring my story "The House of Mars," but also ConQuest KC. Here's a little more about the book and where you can get it, as well as where and when I'll be at the con.

My latest Vault of Secrets column is "half-bone, half-bandage, and all blood-curdling horror!"
The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb (1964). Directed by: Michael Carreras. Starring: Jeanne Roland, Terence Morgan, Ronald Howard, Fred Clark, Jack Gwillim. Welcome back to the Vault of Secrets, where we'll be unearthing another classic (or not-so-classic) vintage horror film for your delectation.

Why have I not heard more (read: anything) about The Canal? While its logline may not be as memorable as some other recent indie horror darlings, it's every bit as visually inventive as the best of them, and more tightly constructed than some, even if the plot isn't exactly blazing new territory.

Yeah, I saw a lot of people react to The Babadook that way. I thought it was good, and all, just not what it was being cracked up as, though I dug the silent movie aesthetic of the monster, and I want the channel that shows Georges Melies films at one in the morning.

Last week in movies: Trailers for things that I'm ostensibly supposed to care about, but for which I am obviously not actually the target audience.

I saw the announcement footage of Rogue Squadron and went "Really, it's about the DEATH STAR? I thought they were going to make some Star Wars movies about other shit."

+Jay Cardens got to completely derail the big boss fight at the end of our IKRPG campaign today, which is only fair, given how many times I've ruined his games over the years.

Oh, yeah.  That was definitely one of the times I was thinking about.  But not ruined!

One of the movies that was playing on TV in the background in It Follows, we watched Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet for Monster Movie Night last night, and it was pretty amazing.

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.
