La legado vivo! With Paul Loh!

I credit Paul Loh with getting me back into the wordslinging game. Back in 2014, while stressing about how my filmmaking career had stalled, I began toying with the idea of delving back into my first passion, prose. I hadn't written prose in years, and was nervous about whether or not I still had the ability. … Continue reading La legado vivo! With Paul Loh!

La legado vivo! With Brian Hodge!

Like many readers of horror lit I discovered the work of Brian Hodge through the legendary Dell/Abyss line, which landed on shelves in the early 1990s like a demon with a napalm kiss and a razor-wire hug. I was addicted to those books, and snatched up each new release. It was through that line of books … Continue reading La legado vivo! With Brian Hodge!
