Jack Hardway's Crime Magazine - New Issue

The first issue of Jack Hardway's Crime Magazine has hit the virtual streets.

For Your Halloween Reading

Over at "The Dark" I found an excellent story by Stephen Graham Jones called "When Swords had Names".  It is both fantasy and horror and very chilling.  You can read it here.

Just for Fun

I love looking at photographs on the Internet because I never know what I'll find,  Today I found the photographs of Christine McConnell who mixes horror themes with the feminine beauty ideals of the 1950's.  She's done some pretty interesting things.  Check it out here.
