Earlier in the year, a fantastic horror writer named Kevin Lucia was finishing grad school and, on his blog, presented a fascinating 9-part series on the nature of horror. I fell in love with this series, and Kevin very graciously allowed me to reprint it here so others can enjoy it, too. The last installment appeared last Thursday. Below, some of his fiction—free—as a Halloween treat!
Also, don’t miss Kevin on this month’s episode of Scary Scribes: this Sunday, October 28, at 6 p.m. You’ll be able to listen live at www.scaryscribes.com.
Kevin Lucia is a Contributing Editor for Shroud Magazine, and a blogger for The Midnight Diner. His short fiction has appeared in several anthologies. He’s currently finishing his Creative Writing Masters Degree at Binghamton University, he teaches high school English and lives in Castle Creek, New York with his wife and children. He is the author of Hiram Grange & The Chosen One, Book Four of The Hiram Grange Chronicles, and he’s currently working on his first novel. Visit him on the web at www.kevinlucia.com.
