This week, tune in to INCARNATION READ, a horror fiction podcast by C.S.W.
INCARNATION READ is a podcast of horror tales, tales of inhuman impulses, of gaps between reality and nightmare, of things that are seen that can’t possibly be real––stories for a listener to hear, and to experience.
On episode #5 of Josh’s Worst Nightmare, host Josh Schlossberg looks at things through another perspective with Gary Robbe, educator and author of “Scrape,” to find out the right–and wrong–ways to write about autism in horror fiction.

Interview by Desi D
I know I should probably say someone like Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, or Shirley Jackson, but the author who influenced my writing the most is definitely John Steinbeck. (What’s funny is it’s recently been revealed that Steinbeck wrote a werewolf novel that’s never been published, and people are calling on his estate to release it!)
Steinbeck’s writing comes across as so simple it’s almost like spoken word, but it’s deceptive in that it’s no easy feat. And not only are his stories deeply meaningful, they’re timeless—as is his prose style which avoids the flowery, clunky sentence structure that dates so many “classic” authors. If a literate alien picked up Steinbeck’s work today, I bet it wouldn’t be able to tell if it had just been written or published centuries ago.
Of course, I’m not saying I’ve achieved close to any of this in my writing. But I think he’s been rubbing off on me and I hope I’m making some progress.Continue reading

This week, whet your appetite for CONSUMED: TALES INSPIRED BY THE WENDIGO, edited by Henry & Hollie Snider!
Hunger that changes you…consumes you…turning you into a nightmare version of what you once were.
From desolate snowy mountains and apocalyptic wastelands to New York’s sex clubs and virtual encounters, Denver Horror Collective brings you, dear reader, visions of horror inspired by the Wendigo.
For the second of our Colorado horror authors ONLY book club, we’ll be reading and virtually discussing dark scribe Matthew Lyon’s THE NIGHT WILL FIND US, followed by a live, virtual Q&A with the author himself on Sunday July 11 @ 5 pm MT.
DHC Book Cult meetings are held via Zoom every 3 months, and attendees will vote on which Colorado horror author to read next!
RSVP by emailing submissions [at] denverhorror [dot] com to receive Zoom link.
THE NIGHT WILL FIND US by Matthew Lyons:
“School’s out for summer and that means one thing to Parker, Chloe, and their four friends: a well-deserved camping trip in the Pine Barrens, a million-acre forest deep in the heart of New Jersey. But when old grudges erupt, an argument escalates into the unthinkable, leaving one of them dead and the killer missing. As darkness descends and those left alive try to determine a course of action, the forest around them begins to change…”
Denver Horror Collective is terrified to announce the table of contents for THE JEWISH BOOK OF HORROR (edited by Josh Schlossberg), due out Hanukkah 2021.
