Hanging with the Moribunch

Mr. Moribund’s Theatre of Terror is a stage show in the style of (if you’re from the Philly area and the 1970s) Dr. Shock!

Mr. Moribund was kind enough to read and review Halloween Party ’21.

Gravelight Press (and our tiniest fan) showed up at their 10th live event on October 23 to be both terrified and amazed, and to provide Mr. Moribund with a signed copy!

Mr. Moribund always does giveaways at his show, raising money for the charity True Colors United. Next time, Halloween Party books will be on the giveaway menu!

Mr. Moribund is a great guy with a big heart, and he puts on onehellishova show!

The camera eye

I’ve never believed in the supernatural, but I couldn’t help worrying that something had happened to Eun-ji and that she was reaching out to me…

Author Phil Guinta‘s “Before She’s Gone Forever” is the kind of supernatural tale that editors simply love. It sticks with you long after you’ve finished the last page and makes you feel like the time you’ve invested in it was time very well spent. We’re fortunate to have this work in Halloween Party ’21. Phil’s is a powerful, imaginative story that is sure to age quite well and is worthy of multiple reads.

If you don’t already own a copy of the paperback, we strongly recommend purchasing the collection for yourself, which you can find at quality bookstores. Alternatively, and for more immediate gratification, simply click the link below to purchase from Amazon.

The creepy crawlies aren’t what they seem…

Someone, or something, has been spying on Liz.

Nancy North Walker presents “Insecticide,” a short story featured in HALLOWEEN PARTY ’21 that effortlessly combines terror and science fiction.

What is Aristotle’s lantern?

They were moving on without him, their head lamps bobbing off in the darkness…

Thus begins R. David Fulcher’s tale of terror, “Aristotle’s Lantern,” one of the many stories that comprise our latest horror collection, HALLOWEEN PARTY ’21.

To hear and see David read his tale, simply click the link above. Though to experience the full horror, we vehemently recommend purchasing a copy of the collection for yourself, which you can find at quality bookstores.

An homage to The Shining…

Robert Fleming’s poem, Elevator of Blood, is directly inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 1979 horror classic, THE SHINING, which, itself, is an adaptation of the equally classic novel by Stephen King first published in 1977.

Robert’s poem and his recording summarize what has been, over the years, documented as a particularly intense Kubrick shoot. Robert captures this intensity as it relates to the infamous and beautifully captured elevator doors of the Overlook Hotel which [spoiler alert] open to reveal a tsunami of blood. It’s easily one of the most visually memorable and disquieting scenes ever filmed.

If you enjoy Robert’s recording be sure to purchase a copy of HALLOWEEN PARTY ’21 to support Gravelight and indy authors like Robert.

NOTES ON HALLOWEEN PARTY ’21

FULL DISLOSURE:
I published this book and wrote one of the stories in it & the introduction.
However, this book is notable, aside from my own motives for selling it, because it contains the last story that is ever going to be published by David W. Dutton, of One of the Madding Crowd fame.
David was my friend, and a wonderful writer, and has recently left us. 
It also contains a short story by noted Goodreads reviewer, Jeffrey D. Keeten. Did you know Keeten could do fiction too? You did not!
Any Anne Rice fans? Then you may be interested to know that in this book is a story by Faye Perozich, noted for this work
If you read comics, then you’ll be interested in the story by graphic novelist David Yurkovich (of Altercations and Less Than Heroes).
And if you follow horror magazine Samsara, then you will already be a fan of R. David Fulcher.
So, my own involvement aside, this book has a lot of plums hidden in it. I bet you’ll love it, and with it’s square shape and glossy cover (which you get to see in 2 more weeks!), it makes a great gift for that brother-in-law who you never know what present he would like. Give him a cool horror book!
