Wes Craven, Horror Legend, Dead at 76

Shadow Girl:

R.I.P. Wes Craven.

Originally posted on TVLine:

Wes Craven, the legendary horror auteur who brought his nightmarish vision to both the big and small screens, died over the weekend of brain cancer. He was 76.

Although Craven made his biggest mark in movies via The Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream franchises, his influence extended to TV as well. In 1988, he created Freddy’s Nightmares, a two-season syndicated horror  anthology series in which each episode was introduced by Elm Street’s Freddy Krueger (played by Robert Englund). He also served as an exec producer on MTV’s current adaptation of Scream.

In a 2013 episode of Castle, Craven guest-starred as himself (Rick consulted him when a case suggested people were being actually scared to death by a  haunted DVD).

Ravenous: Car Nex Collection Book One

Published August 20, 2015 by Shadow Girl

The Car Nex.

Weapons will not slow it. Prayers will not stop it.

It is coming. And it hungers…

Five authors put their horrific spin on the Car Nex (Carnivore from the Nexus), Terry M. West’s wicked and unstoppable creation. If you are a fan of gory creature feature tales, get your monster on with this thrill packed collection of old school horror! This volume features the first wave of Car Nex tales by Terry M. West, ER Robin Dover, Joseph Ramshaw, Kerry EB Black, and Shaun Hupp 

CAR NEX: The Original by Terry M. West

The Campbell Homestead Massacre happened on September 29th, 1965 in Pleasant Storm, Texas. Adam Campbell apparently never watched horror movies like The Evil Dead, or The Gate. If he had watched some 80’s horror flicks, he would have known NOT to read aloud from any ancient tomes, and 28 residents of Pleasant Storm wouldn’t have been hacked to pieces.

CAR NEX: The Evil One by ER Robin Dover

Aldo Capello, the mayor of New York summons the Car Nex to destroy an underground terrorist group, and restore peace to the city. He realizes too late that the cost of peace is paid by the spilling of blood. New York is about to become Meat City.

CAR NEX: The Mighty and the Merciless by Joseph Ramshaw

I wasn’t sure if there was a place for me in this world. Everything else was the same, but I… I was different.  ~ Joseph Ramshaw

The Mighty and the Merciless takes on the Car Nex with a sci-fi twist. It also brings a promise from Joseph Ramshaw – THE FACE-PUNCHERS WILL RETURN!  Don’t go breakin’ our hearts, Joe!

CAR NEX: Storm by Kerry EB Black

Mariah Dawn is in Texas writing an anniversary piece on the Campbell Homestead Massacre for ‘Haunting Texas Landmarks’.  During a bit of ‘urban exploring’, (read: trespassing), she uncovers evidence that might bring the terror of the Car Nex back to Pleasant Storm.

CAR NEX: Trailer Park by Shaun Hupp

David Morgan lived in Pleasant Place Trailer Park with his family until he discovered that his wife was having an affair. She took their daughter and moved to the newer section of Pleasant Places, while David got displaced to the outskirts of the oldest section.

Angry, drunk, and bitter – David summons the Car Nex to take revenge on his ex-wife, and anything else that gets in it’s way.

Bonus points to Shaun Hupp, a fellow Michigan madman, for the Gary Hack tribute, and the BLOODY CARNIVORES nod!

LEGUMEMAN BOOKS: Saying Goodbye

Published August 14, 2015 by Shadow Girl

 

 

 

Dear all,

“It is our sad duty to inform you that LegumeMan Books is closing its doors. When we released our first book six years ago, we had no idea what we were hoping to achieve with this endeavor, and looking back, it seems we achieved rather a lot. We have put a lot of time and energy into doing everything we can to introduce readers to interesting authors while affording particular focus on the activities of the oft-ignored genre-writing scene in Australia. We hope we came some way toward achieving this goal.”

“The reasons for closing are many, but it can be distilled down to lack of time necessary to give our books the support they truly deserve. We could have kept going, but this would not have been in the best interest of the authors who entrusted us with their work. We want LegumeMan to be something we can look back at fondly, and prolonging closure would compromise that outcome.”

“To every person who ever spent their money on a LegumeMan book, or took time out of their day to promote us, we thank you. It truly means the world to us to know there are so many people out there who showed enthusiasm for the work of our wonderful authors. We would not have lasted this long without you and we owe you everything. Every royalty check our authors ever received from us, no matter how small, was entirely thanks to you.”

“So what does this all mean? Over the coming months, all of our titles will be delisted with the rights being given back to the authors. Some of these books may go on to live second lives and some may not. If there is a title you have been thinking about picking up, this may be your last opportunity to do so.”

“Thank you all once more. It has been wonderful and we will never forget it.”

Let the Night Be,
LegumeMan Books
Robert Hamilton, Matthew Revert & Brooke Walters
