Here’s another installment of your Monday Mourning Report in which I dug around the weird dark web only to return with a few bones to share at the table with you.
The Devil’s Equinox by John Everson
Austin secretly wishes his wife would drop dead. He even says so one boozy midnight at the bar to a sultry stranger with a mysterious tattoo. When his wife later introduces that stranger as Regina, their new neighbor, Austin hopes she will be a good influence on his wife. Instead, one night he comes home to find his wife dead. Soon he’s entranced with Regina, who introduces him to a strange world of bloodletting, rituals and magic. A world that puts everything he loves in peril. Can Austin save his daughter, and himself, before the planets align for the Devil’s Equinox? FLAME TREE PRESS is the new fiction imprint of Flame Tree Publishing. Launched in 2018 the list brings together brilliant new authors and the more established; the award winners, and exciting, original voices.
From the twitterverse of producer, Andrew van den Houten’s (Jack Ketchum’s THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, HEADSPACE): Getting closer to our @darkskyfilms release of #Darlin’ from @hoodriverent! So excited for @THEWOMANMOVIE fans to see this and congrats to our helmer, Polly A. McIntosh.
BEERS AND FEARS: THE HAUNTED BREWERY by Tim Meyer, Chuck Buda, Frank Edler and Armand Rosamilia
There’s an abandoned building in northern New Jersey with a rich, haunted history. Ghosts. Demons. Monsters of all kinds. It was once an asylum for the criminally insane, a craft brewery, and most recently – a decrepit eyesore that should have been demolished years ago. A place where evil dwells. A venue that feeds on the souls of all who enter.
It’s five o’clock somewhere, but here, it’s always just after midnight. So come. Have a drink. Just don’t stay too long. Because here, there is no last call.
Tim Waggoner on Twitter: The editor that asked for a 6,000 word story won’t mind if I wrote 11,350 words, right?
From Stephen King’s twitter: A little help for a work in progress, Twitterverse? Can you think of stories or novels narrated by mentally deficient—or downright stupid—characters? I have THE SOUND AND THE FURY and FLOWERS FOR ALGENRNON. Any help appreciated.
From A.J. Brown’s FB page: Anyone lose a big snake? If so, I think we found it … or we know where it is: in my garage. I. hate. snakes.
And Matt Schwartz has this to say about the latest installment of CHUCKY: Regarding the Child’s Play remake — it was an interesting choice, though ultimately perhaps not the correct one, that rather than remake the original Child’s Play, they instead recreated the “Funzo” episode of the Simpsons (really). Say what you will about the original series — it’s inconsistent but joyously subversive and crazy (especially the insane Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky entries). But this remake feels way more by the numbers with some questionable design choices for the doll. It definitely is more of a comedy than horror, but substitutes gore for intelligence. Watchable, but totally forgettable. I give it a C.
Beware what lurks in the deep! Son of the Kraken, or something else? You decide! Giant squid caught on camera.
