Hunting Monsters

It’s Halloween, and as is tradition, I was hoping to write something about monster movies but didn’t get to it. In fairness, I have a little monster of my own to take care of, and that means things like blithering on about old movies take a backseat. Still, no reason to let the holiday pass by unremarked on.

Below is a list of all my writings about monsters and movies to date. Some of these are quite a few years old, but I think they hold up. Hopefully, I’ll have added to the list when Halloween rolls around next year.

But that’s not all! There’s a new free-to-read story over at my Patreon for you to enjoy. “The Fates of Dr. Fell” is my twisted take on the classic horror portmanteau film, albeit in short story form, and it seems appropriate to reprint it on Halloween. It originally  appeared in the 2016 anthology, Spawn of the Ripper, from April Moon Books. The anthology is still available, by the way, and I highly recommend you check it out!

  1. I’ve been meaning to get start reading more horror stories, as I’ve only watched a few films in the horror genre rather than the literature. The only book I’ve read was Frankenstein, which was a decade ago in one of my English subjects.

    There was another book I read called Hammers on Bone, but I’m sure if it’s a detective/Horror or Sci Fi genre. I’d recommend reading it as the story is an interesting and strange journey.

    I’ll be reading your list to get me started on the horror genre, I’m curious to see what monsters I haven’t heard of before.

    Recently I’ve done a lot of work on the Soul Wars Collection and I’ve finally got the Sacrosanct Chamber finished. Oh and also Pharus Thaum too!

    I have two links below on the posts.

    1. I have actually read Hammers on Bone, and enjoyed it a great deal! And those models look fantastic – I’m flattered the book inspired you so. Would you mind if I shared the links to those?
