Support Horror on Patreon
Posted on: March 30th, 2014 by Anthony Rapino

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here.  I hate not updating this page more often, but I do have a good reason for it: money.  I’m broke, and unfortunately, the more time I spend writing posts for this site, making videos for YouTube, writing horror stories, and basically doing all the things I really […]

Horror and the 80’s: Best Friends Forever
Posted on: August 28th, 2013 by Anthony Rapino 6 Comments

I’m sitting at my computer desk at 12:01 on a Wednesday afternoon, typing what you now read, while I listen to the heavy drops of rain fall outside my window.  It’s dark in this room–because it’s grey and overcast outside.  It’s not too hot here, but the humidity makes everything–even inside–feel damp.  I don’t mind […]

I’m Writing, Are You?

I was sitting here in my office, getting ready to work on my second novel, when it occurred to me:  I haven’t posted a blog in weeks.  This is not an epiphany.  It’s something I consider nearly every day along with inquiries about strange growths on my head and research about elevated caffeine levels in […]

It seems I’ve let months pass between posts again. I could lie and say I’ve been hard at work on my second novel (The Shadows of Flies), but that’s not entirely true.  I’ve only been easy at work on my second novel.  There’s still much more to go. But I do have news.  First of […]

Jorge Garcia is Awesome
Posted on: October 18th, 2012 by Anthony Rapino 4 Comments

Continuing with my random editions of “So-And-So is Awesome,” today I tell you that Jorge Garcia is awesome.  But you probably knew that already. A few months ago, while browsing Mr. Garcia’s blog, I noticed he accepts fan mail, and–quite graciously I might add–sends out autographed photos to those who request it.  Being the peculiar […]

Hi. Today’s blog tour stop is the supreme taco bean: Laurita Miller’s Calling Shotgun.  Laurita was kind enough to read and review my novel.  Here’s a taste: One of the first things I noticed about this book was the paper on which it is printed. It’s so smooth; I wanted to touch it with my […]
