while I flesh out two works

I am going to post something that will give these fag macabre writers a run for their money -- I can be just as perverse but more personal with it. So I am linking a personal dark entry from -- it is titled 21 Days. I am working on a novel that is a true tribute to the horror writers who are fathers and son, Richard Matheson and R.C. Matheson, Stephen King and Joe Hill. Those are the four I call to mind here -- Joe is going to influence a lot of writers like his dad does. He is his father's son, talented and imaginative with his approach to horror. I read the bonus short story in Heart Shaped Box -- I will be reading the novel soon. A few writers I appeard with cite Joe Hill as an influence on them. The new short story I am working on is going to give some of the more perveres horror writers a run for their money. It is not erotic horror -- I will never write that sort of thing but it would be my first forray into writing body horror. I always thought about writing that sort of thing for a long time, I did it with Bite of the Spider and lookming to publish this kind of horror when I do my real person horror anthology for I have the guidelines posted and I will not look at male male romance because it is disgusting.
     I am sick of that kind of literature flooding the market -- I don't want to read about two men kissing each other or two women kissing each other, I can see people screaming at the computer calling me a bigot but I am a regular guy and think that is repulsive. I find it morally wrong. It is too much flooding the market and it is flooding the speculative fiction market. That is what I was talking about when I said no alternative romance in the pages of Tabloid Purposes. When I saw the preview of the sniveling brat's novella in the magazine I appeared in I was thankful he wasn't included in the pages of Tabloid Purposes IV. I get pissed off when they flood the inbox with message saying, "take me out now" and he was towards the middle, at the time he was just fourteen and trolling the message boards. I don't want to see anything gay lit for submissions to my anthologies or the magazine -- I am a born again Christian I don't agree with it and will speak out against it. It is not God's desgin for a man and another man to marry nor a woman and another woman to marry. I believe firmly that marriage is a scared vow between one man and one woman before God. The novel will have this aspect -- I am trying to play down the inspirational stuff but focus on the genre nods. I am looking for a genre publisher for the novel when I have it done. I am actually thinking about sending it to Deadite Press. If I co-write with a writer I will send to
      I have I I got a lot of flack and criticism for my no sex policy. I had a lot of sex with women just don't like writing about it -- I don't fuck and tell. I already did the sex and horror type fiction -- I even wrote a sexual mutilation in a story where the guy has his own dick cut off and it was shoved in his mouth as he was crucified upside down. That is something that put me up there with the writers on The House Of Pain. I am capable of the transgressive fiction like Bret Easton Ellis but I am not influenced by him. I wrote a story like that n Dirty Black WInter called FUCKBEATER a psychological horror story where one of the characers get their throat slit with a papercutter. I am capable of very dark and psychotic takes of traditional horror -- the straight version of the author who wrote Fight Club. My memoir has about as many fights as that novel. The new story I am working on might end up having a couple fainters if I read it live. That would be the funniest thing seeing people faint from me reading something really graphic -- the imagery of cockroaches crawling in human flesh might get to some people.
      J.M. Heluk noticed muy extreme stuff in 2002 when I was posting on a site called Thought I am one of the heavyweights in the small press macabre being I can do the truly macabre work where I would make me vomit in the mouth a little bit when I think about it -- I don't portray someone masterbating in a story but I play around with a concept Stephen King did in Survivor Type. The new short story is very depraved for me -- it is a sequel to the short story that broke my journal on diary-x to having a following because of The House of Pain appearences. I appeared there three times -- Dirty Black Winter will have the entries of mine that appeared in the final edition to carry fiction. I met a lot of talented writers on The House Of Pain some are too depraved for me to personally publish but I will refer them to a market that publishes that sort of thing. I suggesed to one writer to tone it down because he wanted to go pro with his work. I am just in the last three years writing extreme material again, the novel is a little moodey with the darkness in there with colorful characters. The short story is very dark like Richard Matheson's Hell House. I am doing a story that has the dark surreal yarn but having my macabre traits -- I am using some fetish imegery for this one, sort of making Marique De Sade puke in his mouth a little bit. The new short story I would send to Deadite Press if they were putting together an anthology. They pulbish cult horror. Dirty Black Winter could had been something I might had submitted for publication there but theyu might not allow The Fandom Writer as the lead story. There are a lot of people in the business that save the most backlash towards The Fandom Writer. Nine years later they still want my blood over this short story. I penned a controversial classic. I did the really dark stuff without being perverse or depraved -- keeping it PG-13 for publications but the new story is an adult horror story.

policy posted on fan fiction

I am detailed about fan fiction guidelines of my work and will allow it for Lake Fossil Only with the condition I get to publish it in The Ethereal Gazette. I am doing an anthology of real person horror featuring me as a character but I ask contributors to read Namesake II for the model story to this idea -- I want them to be straight up balls to the wall scary horror. Nothing sexual or slashy oriented -- I don't want to see male male romance, female-female romance, female female erotica, no trans shit either, or male male erotica. That is gross. The memoir is the source material for the fan fiction stories based off me, I want them written in the vein of Richard Matheson and Richard Christian Matheson. Intelligent and surreal is what I am looking for with one story being features on the blog with a page dedicated to the best story overall. I am not looking for anything resembling Andrew Wolter or Poppy Z. Brite. But I want stories to feel not out of place on Mike Philbin's anthologies he published over the years. I want the writers to be creative and have a full range of creativity with the dark subject matter. My trademark style is using real haunted places -- akin to In The Reflection Of A Lens. I am looking for help to format the book to publish it on but I am looking to work with -- my strict guidelines for the magazine are in effect for the anthology and the size I am going for is 260 pages. Think the publications I put out in the past and what I was featured in for examples here -- the suggested reads will be posted on this one blog entry too for those looking for help to get ideas for the stories. I am looking to pitch the anthology to since I joined there nine years ago to play around with ideas that are unique to me but sneak great deals of originality in there--I got in trouble for being too original for
       I want to work with another editor to make this anthology work, something that needs a collaboration between two editors to make it happen. The weirder the stories and more surreal -- the better, I write with a lot of surrealism like Mike Philbin but it is more toned down. I am working on a short story right now that is another sequel and looking to send it off to a paying market. I am trying to convince Jordan Bobe to be the co-editor on this project because it's got some of the traits of Darkened Horizons: Issue 3's closing story. I can hold my own with Gabrielle Faust and Kevin Lucia in that anthology but that one had a lot of egos -- none of the writers involved got along except for Colin who appears in The Ethereal Gazette as the closing writer. I want to do something that has an oil painting for a cover like the namesake 2 has. I have the rules laid out for the masses here -- and want everyone to be on the same page when it comes to this pet project as an anthologist. I want to work with createspace or on this one. I want to publish the book in a 5.5 x 8.5 trade paperback. I want to do this as a print only anthology -- but I want to co-edit a kindle or nook only anthology too with another editor who can operate software on a desktop computer. Laptops are good for writing but when it comes to editing a publication it is hard as hell.
      I know my fans well in the business, they like to kick peoples asses -- they fight, drink beer, smoke cigarettes, pissed off and intelligent. I stole one of Poppy's fans with Library of Bones -- so I am looking for fan fiction based off that short story. It was published on and it was one of my stronger stories I wrote in 2003 -- it got noticed by Nicholas Tillemans. I am looking for that kind of dark but not perverse. If you want to collaborate on the stories with another writer that is fine. I welcome collaborations. I published a collaboration between two brothers and they are billed as The Davis Brothers on the TOC. I published a writing team on The Ethereal Gazette: Issue One. I want to do more with collaboration teams as a publisher. I am trying to do this real person fan fiction anthology as an excise as an editor to train my eye to those who can stay faithful to my visions as a publisher. Tabloid Purposes broadscope was twisted horror and mind-bending Science Fiction but accessible enough to the teenager to shock their parents -- I wanted a cover where the parents will say, "What the fuck are you reading? At least you're reading books and not watching TV all the time." I like weird and surreal -- but nothing too pervers. I am co-writing a story with one of the contributors on the namesake one's reboot. I will be writing the introduction for this anthology where it will pay tribute to Richard Matheson and his influence on the writers in Tabloid Purposes IV and my story in the namesake one. The model for the fan fiction anthology is my story in namesake 2. I want nothing that would fit in the queer horror anthologies that are published out there or the erotica anthologies that are published in the small press. I want inventive not sleazy.
       I noticed that slash writers are little sleazy--and that is why The Fandom Writer seems to piss them off. The story is a swipe at Poppy Z. Brite in 2004 when I first wrote it -- I submitted the story for a contest but the judge was the editor of Queer Fear. My anthologies was the straight writers answer to that trend. I wanted writers who are straight and Christian. I was blessed to worked with Christian writers from the very beginning but I want something that wouldn't be too out of place in a bookshelf along side Frank Peretti or Ted Dekker. I want an illustrator who is talented as A.P. Fuchs illustrating this anthology but helping me design the covers on photoshop because I want to have the cool spine layout. I am thinking of making the anthology available on but they don't have the size I want for the anthology. The thing with working with Creatspace is you need a pdf blender to put the pdf's together into one document. That is what I like about they do that all for me. I just need someone to help me design the wrap around covers to make the anthology seamless. I want it something cool that I can see what people do with me as a character in a story -- but make the story original.
      Tucker in Chimeraworld so Mike gets some attention for his anthologies -- give the books supernatural powers. I want the stories to be genrecletic. That is Mike's term. I want a dark delivery that belongs entirely to the contributor. I am looking to run this through some channels and have working titles going in my head for the anthology. I might enlist the Tabloid Purposes roster to look over the stories with me -- I want to borrow a trait that Kaplan did when he edited Emanations having more than one editor working on a project but one editor calling the shots who stays or who gets cut. I want writers good enough to invade Clive Barker's website like I did 13 years ago. I linked up the short story that did just that when I did a wall post on I am promoting the anthologies I did and appeared in hard on the groups. It is hard to get contributors who are keen to a vision you have for an anthology but when it works it works. I was blessed to work with as many writers as I did over the nine plus years as a publisher -- I have been a publisher almost as long as A.P. Fuchs -- I was lucky to work with him to illustrate Faraday Nelson's short story in The Ethereal Gazette: Issue 12.
