Utopia TV Series is the Best

I missed the last episode of Utopia, so I have just watched it on 4oD. It’s one the best series I have seen in a long time and I will miss it now it is finished. The way it ended they could easily make a second series, but there have been some complaints made to…


R. I. P. Dark Discussions Horror Forum

After careful consideration I have taken down Dark Discussions Horror Forum. It no longer had any active members—not even me!—so it was use to neither man nor beast. The Spammers seemed to love it though, and that only caused me more work. The final straw came when I tried to make the site conform to…

A Real Life Amazon Kindle Horror Story

I’ve just read a rather shocking story about Amazon closing someone’s account, without any warning, and then wiping all of the books from her kindle. Why? That’s a very good question.

I received an email from ChiZine today. They are having a Black Friday sale, and the sale is going to keep on keeping on until 26th November. Why are they having a sale?

If you have seen Howling II you will no doubt remember that there was a punk group in the film. The name of the group was Babel and Stephen W. Parsons played the lead singer. Parsons also wrote the soundtrack for the film and, according to IMDb he has since written the soundtracks for another…


Another One Bites The Dust

How many small press markets have you seen come and go? Too many I’m willing to bet. Well, Murky Depths can be added the list. Issue #18 is the last one, folks. The print magazine may have folded, but the Murky Depths team still plan on publishing paperback books and graphic novels under their House…
