    Actress and artist Kate Rogal makes unique works that primarily consist of threaded beads pushed into wax by toothpicks—time consuming pieces that she sells off her website www.Katesfreakart.com. Subjects for her bead art and her pen and ink illustrations range from friendly dogs and birds to skulls, abstract design and erotic nudes. All are works of finery, all are outstanding.

    At the mountains of metal: Lovecraft goes bronze!

    Although H.P. Lovecraft has been dead for over 75 years, the author’s influence has seeped into every aspect of horror culture, whether it be film, literature, theater or art. Now, thanks to sculptor Bryan Moore and filmmaker Jovanka Vuckovic, the author’s visage will remain as everlasting as his work in the form of a life-sized bronze bust, set to permanently reside outside the Providence Athenaeum Library in Rhode Island. However, there is one catch: they need your help to make it happen!

    Q+A: Stephen Volk on Cushing tribute novella “WHITSTABLE”

    Perhaps best known for his screenwriting work (GOTHIC, GHOSTWATCH, THE AWAKENING) Stephen Volk has also become increasingly prominent as a writer of short genre fiction. His new novella WHITSTABLE tells a fictionalised tale of horror legend Peter Cushing encountering a real-life monster; not in a Transylvanian castle, but in a humdrum English seaside town. An empathic, deeply melancholic work, WHITSTABLE sensitively handles not only its account of everyday, domestic horrors, but also the character of Cushing himself: a decent, dignified man racked with grief over the death of his beloved wife Helen. Perhaps the highest compliment I can pay the book is that it manages to capture the essence of what has made Peter Cushing so beloved amongst successive generations of genre fans, and in the centenary of his birth, he could receive no finer tribute.

    Q&A: “WORLD WAR Z” author Max Brooks on new undead comic, “EXTINCTION PARADE”

    When a person mentions zombies in polite conversation, several things tend to come to mind: George Romero, THE WALKING DEAD, B Movies, to name a few. In recent years, another name has been added to the ever growing history of the undead, Max Brooks. Brooks, best known for the ZOMBIE SURVIVAL GUIDE and WORLD WAR Z, is internationally renowned for his factual-like take on the ghoulish plague while re-sparking interest in the genre.

    Q&A: Slipknot’s Corey Taylor on first comic, “HOUSE OF GOLD AND BONES”

    Rock ‘n’ roll and comics are not so far apart. Both have been blamed for corrupting the youth, both have inspired the other, and both are certainly owned by the Devil himself. It is little wonder that musicians are finding themselves behind the pages of a few four-color panels themselves with the likes of Life of Agony’s Alan Robert, and now Slipknot/Stone Sour front man Corey TAYLOR: , the newest musician to be bitten by the creative bug. Fresh from his fifth album with Stone Sour titled HOUSE OF GOLD AND BONES PART TWO (part one was released October 2012), TAYLOR:  has dropped the similarly titled bookas a companion piece. Part dreamscape, part horror, the story follows the journey of a nameless man as he wakes up in an unknown world, hunted by a strange creature. As he attempts to put together his fragmented memories, he inexplicably finds himself attracting demonic doppelgangers, dark shadows, and more questions than answers.

    Q&A: Nader Sadek on sharing his own skin for “LIVING FLESH” & more

    Let’s just say Nader Sadek possesses a considerably more expansive view of what constitutes a “special edition” than most: The brilliant, endlessly inventive Egyptian multimedia artist/death metal architect known for devising the ghoulish stage art employed by extreme music luminaries such as Mayhem and Sunn O))) recently had strips of his own skin surgically removed and tanned to create the packaging for a unique copy of the supremely brutal LIVING FLESH, a live CD/DVD capturing a rare 2011 performance by the eponymous death metal supergroup to which Sadek serves as a kind of artistic director amidst current and former members of Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel, Behemoth, Vader and Mayhem.

    Q&A: Corn on Macabre reflect on horror-themed grindcore and definitive collection, “DISCOGRAPHIC VIOLENCE”

    The late, great Rod Serling-worshipping, H.G. Wells-hyping horror-themed avant grind band Corn on Macabre may have once issued a wonderfully sinister sonic salvo entitled “Shut Up and Play Something Evil,” but it would be a mistake to presume this was a motivational mantra chanted before each practice. “The message definitely wasn’t something that we needed for ourselves,” the band’s former bassist/current Highness guitarist Brent Eyestone tells FANGORIA. “Our collective evil was in tune and finely calibrated before we even got down the steps to the basement.”

    Q&A: Writer Pat Mills on 25+ years of superhero hunting with “MARSHAL LAW”

    Originally launched in 1987, MARSHAL LAW was a gob of spit in the face of superhero comics; a gleefully violent satire of the genre. The titular character was a superhero hunter, a war veteran living in a dystopian future city, tasked with hunting down the array of superpowered criminals and psychopaths created and then discarded by the US Government. In the words of the Marshal: “I hunt heroes. Haven’t found any yet.”

    MICHAEL SLADE TALKS E-BOOKS AND NEW “SPECIAL X” NOVEL

    Slade (left) with Paul Landers of Rammstein

    It’s no secret that your humble EIC is obsessed by the gritty, fascinating and despicably violent psychosexual novels penned by Canadian literary entity Michael Slade (aka the pseudonym of former Vancouver criminal lawyer Jay Clarke). For over three decades, Slade has been crafting dense, pulp thrillers surrounding the serial killer profiling Special X, an RCMP run outfit that consistently runs afoul of perverse madmen (and women) in classic tomes such as HEADHUNTER, GHOUL, HANGMAN, RED SNOW, DEATH’S DOOR and CUTTHROAT; extensively researched , historically accurate amalgams of high art and exploitative trash.
