Hey, friends. Exciting moment here. My very first novella was called WITCHING HOUR THEATRE, and for the first time in a good while, it’s available for your Kindle. Even better, this is an all-new version, complete with two thousand more words, a gorgeous Matthew Revert cover, a new Foreword, and an Afterword called “My Wife, Stephen […]Read more "A Halloween Surprise: WITCHING HOUR THEATRE!"
Last week I appeared with Hunter Shea and Jack Campisi on their wonderful MONSTER MEN show. Well, that interview/discussion turned into two interviews/discussions, and the second installment is available to watch now. It’s about vampires. And my novel DUST DEVILS. Because it contains vampires. In addition to that, we talk about FRIGHT NIGHT. ‘SALEM’S LOT […]Read more "The Monster Men and I Take on Vampires!"
Howdy, pardners! Good of y’all to stop by the Janz Cyber-Ranch for some whiskey and—ah, I can’t do it. I know a gimmick is tired when I annoy myself with it.

Stephen King got me into reading when I was fourteen, and he changed my life in ways I’ll talk about at a later date. In case you’re wondering, the other book I read was one whose title I […]Read more "More Than Legend: A Tribute to Richard Matheson"
Those of you who’ve read this one already are already nodding your heads in fond remembrance and appreciation of Matheson’s artistry. For those of you who haven’t, you’ve got a nasty treat in store for you. Except that doesn’t quite do the story justice. Sure, a tale that’s only a couple pages long—that’s right; you’ll […]Read more "Richard Matheson’s “Born of Man and Woman”"
My wife’s always telling me I should post more about myself on here. She claims not everyone is as fixated on Stephen King and Richard Matheson as I am. Could it be? So before I go to bed to read the final pages of THE EXORCIST, I’ll share something I do every day. Well, almost […]Read more "One Hundred Kisses"
