Today is the Blu-Ray/DVD release date for the terrifying surprise hit The Autopsy of Jane Doe–if you saw this on VOD and loved it as much as I did, now’s the time to add it to your collection! Dark Discussions looks at symbols and more in the film on Episode 268, which you can listen to here: http://www.darkdiscussions.com/Pages/podcast_268.html
On Shadow Nation (formerly The Ghostman & Demon Hunter Show), Shaun and Nathan kept a stiff upper lip as they interviewed the film’s corpse, played by Olwen Catherine Kelly. You can give that a listen here: http://shadownation.com/autopsy-jane-doe-olwen-catherine-kelly/

It’s Episode 3! Yes, people, I’m still working on my entry. If Jennifer Allis Provost runs out of space by the time it’s done, I’ll run it here on my blog. Although…I’m hoping to get this baby out the door today.
I’m happy to announce that the Table of Contents for the anthology I’m guest editing—Ink Stains January 2018—is coming together nicely!
Before exploring the submissions box, I acquired two stories by dear friends that I’d read years ago and never forgotten (both pieces were not intended for publication; they were part of theses, so fortunately for me the rights were still available!). One more—a poem, actually, which will serve as the preface—came along by default, and I have feelers out for another piece, but I won’t know if that’s going to come through for a few weeks, probably. I’ll talk about these in another post.
For now, I’d like to announce that contracts have been signed to publish Read the rest of this entry
A little ways back, Dark Discussions ran a contest in its Facebook group — what movies from the past would listeners like to hear us cover? One of the winners (it was a tie) was 1963’s Jason and the Argonauts.
Since it seems like Hollywood has figured out (finally, and we’re not complaining!) that horror films do well in the winter months, we’ve had so many new releases to cover we haven’t had time to get to either of our winners. We got lucky when logistics hung us up for a week, so we decided a trip down memory lane (and into the dusty annals of our brains to see what we remember about the myths we read in high school) would be the perfect fill-in.

The Harvest, Amy Hempel
It’s always nice to know someone is reading the blog, especially when I find out he’s passionate about the short story! Recently, I got an email from Mark, who passed on the name of a short story I might like—Amy Hempel’s “The Harvest.”
He couldn’t have been more right.
As a writer, I’ve always been fascinated by the story behind the story—what inspired this particular piece? I consider each of my fictions to be a slice of my life: it was always inspired by something real. What Read the rest of this entry
