Dead Love: Party Time/B...

Party time, ghoulz and naughty boyz! The date is set for the first DEAD LOVE book launch-ghoulfest-zombie jamboree. This will be a very different kind of bookstore event. In a addition to a reading by DEAD LOVE author, Linda Watanabe McFerrin, there’ll be food and drink, fun,...
A.K.A. Boris Karloff

A.K.A. Boris Karloff...

You really can’t talk about classic horror without mentioning Boris Karloff. Actually, the real name of the English actor born in 1887 was William H. Pratt. Young Pratt was Anglo-Indian … his aunt was Anna Leonowens, the woman whose tales of the Siamese court were behind...
Dead Love: Creep

Dead Love: Creep...

Another message from Clément. I keep finding these with little notes addressed to me: “Be Mine,” “What a Ghoul Wants,” “How He Fell for You,” “Love and Death.” Clément likes this song and no wonder—he could have written it. But he...

Dead Love is For the Bi...

Last night amid the tinkle of glassware being banged on by knives by my lusty companions, I was asked to reveal my favorite film of all time. Big surprise that it is a classic horror film. The Birds. Directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starring Tippie Hedren, it was actually taken from...
Dead Love: Dance of Death

Dead Love: Dance of Dea...

Death leads in this dance, popular in the Middle Ages when people were dying like rats; with rats; oh, rats! It was introduced in allegorical form in 14th Century religious texts as a warning or maybe a whistle through the pervading darkness. Imagine the shake, rattle and pop as all...

Promises, promises … but I’m keeping this one. Here it is, all you glamorous ghouls and bad boys … A SNEAK PEEK at Erin (me) and the guys (sensei Hiroshi Nakamura and his dead lover, Koan, aka Clément) on the cover page of the DEAD LOVE manga supplement, “How...
Dead Love: Fashionable Zombie

Dead Love: Fashionable ...

What to wear to the zombie walk? How to look fashionable at the Voodoo Lounge? For the latest in creepy clothing, I suggest Sourpuss. Take, for example, the gorgeous Cockroach Bandana, the Hell Bunny B Movie Hoodie, or how about the Rock Rebel Grenade Earrings. Need houseware? They...
Dead Love: A Warning to Lovers

Dead Love: A Warning to...

Brains or books, brains or books? Well, I am going to choose books every time. They have, in their way, a big connection to brains. So RUN—don’t stumble, stagger, or fall—to your keyboards, cars, trikes and so on; and order the special, hardcover edition of DEAD LOVE. This...
Dead Love: Tuesday Brain Twisters

Dead Love: Tuesday Brai...

Misfits, brains—suitable fare for a Tuesday? Well, I just had to fit it in … probably because it’s a little Oliver Twist, and I do love Dickens. Hmmm, well maybe a twist on Twist. Or maybe just twisted. Yes, and it’s a little Sweeney Todd as well. Let’s just...
