Dear friends, today is going to be quick and miscellaneous, because I’m getting married in two days (!) and only have time for a short post today. Rest assured that tomorrow and Saturday’s posts are going to rule, as the awesome Dora Badger takes the reins with a two-part look at horror web comics…
In the meantime, here is a creepy/funny horror short film and two of the creepiest stories out there on the web that can be read for free. Do yourself a favor and check out all three, if you haven’t already. This is good stuff…
1. “each thing i show you is a piece of my death” by Stephen J. Barringer and Gemma Files
This is a masterpiece of creeping weirdness, techno-media horror, and epistolary writing done perfectly, by the wife-and-husband team of Gemma Files and Stephen Barringer. Click HERE to read for free over at Apex Magazine online.
2. “Skullpocket” by Nathan Ballingrud
Nathan Ballingrud is one of the most impressive current masters of short horror, and here he shows just how horrific science fiction can be. Click HERE to read over at io9.
