Oliver Baer‘s video interpretation of Robert Galinsky’s “Five Fights” was part of a Franklin Furnace event celebrating the poem. His name is used in the play “Scarcity of Illness” by Rachel Leighson, which was part of The Skeleton Rep(resents) Spring Salon Series, and as part of Kurt Komoda’s artwork story on the edges of the cookbook, NecroNomNomNom by Mike Slater.
Amy Grech’s story “.38 Special,” wherein Russian roulette and allergies coalesce with dire consequences, will be featured in Gorefest, available for preorder now. In Behind The Keyboard with R.F. Blackstone, Grech discusses life in NYC and all things horror, including the different approaches to writing short stories versus novellas. On a recent episode of the Burial Plot Podcast, Grech revealed her secrets for staying so prolific and read an excerpt from her story, “Cold Comfort”, which appears in recently published anthology, The One That Got Away.
N.R. Lambert‘s new story “Charon Taxi & Limo Corp.,” about a New York City cabbie who transports lost souls, is included in The Modern Deity’s Guide to Surviving Humanity, out now from Zombies Need Brains.
