Let's Talk

Hey everyone,

I'm new here and I'm an author. I'd like to discuss Self-Publishing, ebooks and other alternitive forms of getting the word out. I don't have all the answers and insight but I have some experience under my belt and it's good to talk shop with others. helps us sharpen the old knives, if you know what I mean.

Also, does anyone know how to add signatures to the messages on this board?

Carrion Comfort

So I started the thread on "Drood" awhile back and now I'm currently reading "Carrion Comfort" from Dan Simmons, same author. This was his second novel, and its really good. I'm about 160 pages into it and its a fairly thick book, running at about 750 pages. Its a book about the nature of violence, and explores how anyone can commit truely horrible acts of violence towards others, using the "Holocaust" as the pinnicale of mankind's most violent act.

Horror novels and their movies

Curious what books have you guys read and later saw the movie of. Did you enjoy one over the other? Are there any books/short stories still to be made into a movie you think would make a good one in the right hands? I've read "The Exorcist" and "The Omen". Both good books and good movies. More recent books I've read were "The Ruins" which I liked more then the movie. I've been trying to branch out of Stephen King which I've read a ton of and even he outgrew the horror genre quite some time ago. One writer I've not read a lot of is Clive Barker.

Dead of the Night

I recently self-published a horror novel I wrote called "Dead of the Night". It's a new take on an old sub-genre favorite, that sub-genre being zombies. These zombies are sort of a hybrid of zombies and vampires, and I hope I've delivered these ghouls in a way that's fresh and exciting to readers. It's influenced by everyone's favorites from the genre *i.e. Night, Dawn, Dead Alive, Return, etc.*, and, as biased as I may be, I think the characters and story are engaging, and it moves at a quick enough pace to keep you engaged until the end.

RE: Horror Fiction

 Steven King will always be my favorite author, and there are a lot of great writes out there. Who directed In The Mouth Of Madness, and what was the name of the movie that Johnny Depp played in, where he was on the hunt for the pages of a book of the devils power ? There was another movie where he was a writer, he became upcested with the story , started killing people and buring them in the corn field, it was a good movie but I don't know the name of it. With all the technology today, do you think you could go back to enjoying radio tv ?
