I am a firm believer in researching the markets I plan to submit to. I just ordered an issue of Dark Wisdom, a dark literature magazine. It pays professional rates (5 cents a word), and looks pretty cool to boot. Interested in ordering a copy or submitting? DARK WISDOM Come on people. If you are […]

New Counter
Posted on: January 28th, 2006 by Anthony Rapino

Just a note. I added a new counter to the bottom of the page. This one will only count unique hits, so each visitor will count as only one hit, and I will no longer bump my count up when posting. Good and bad I guess. Bad because my count will probably stay quite low […]

It’s extremely hard to make such a strong argument for one movie when there were so many scary movies this year such as House of Wax, The Fog, and Kicking and Screaming (Yes, I am ripping on all three of those movies). Nevertheless, I believe you’ll agree after watching the below link, that it is […]

Published stories link
Posted on: January 7th, 2006 by Anthony Rapino

I have decided to add links to my published stories on the sidebar. I have been putting this off because the one story I have to post is not a horror story. It was published about 6 or 7 months ago, and is a literary story. It’s okay, I guess, but since it wasn’t horror, […]
