Here in northeast Kansas, October is truly the finest month of the year. The air cools, the leaves began to fade into their fall pageant, and Halloween looms at the end of the month. Joy!
October also brings one of the best perks of being an English teacher. One of my classes will read The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, I'm putting together a reading packet with stories by Poe, Lovecraft, and Derleth, and I need to write sentences for vocabulary words like morbid, emaciated, grotesque, and pestilence. What fun!
Issue 4 of Necrotic Tissue is out, a super-duper double-sized whopping of horror, featuring my story, "Catalog Sales".
Macabre Cadaver #3 is also available, with my horrid little resurrection, "Dinner".
