DHC Strikes Again!

Just like bears getting ready to hibernate through the long mountain winter, this month DHC members sated themselves at the Standley Lake Library, sinking their teeth into some of their own horror fiction. Thanks again to librarian–and thriller author!–Sean Eads for the invite.

Meanwhile, our three monthly critique groups—in-person short fiction, virtual short fiction, virtual long fiction–are going strong, and we’ve got at least one new publication on the horizon for DHC’s small press.

Oh, and we’d like to welcome new members–Jason Dry, Sarah Read, Erica Hoffmeister, A.E. Santana, Allison Diekhoff, Sara Martinez, Andrew Padbury, Aaron Small, Charles Wood, and S. Michael Siegal—to the cult…um, we mean, group. If you aren’t already a member, what in HECK are you waiting for?

Finally, we’d wish you all a “happy Halloween,” but here at DHC, the dark festival never ends.

So we slept on it, reconvened the next day, and made an unanimous decision: Denver Horror Collective is no more.
