DHC’s Inclusive Horror

What does “inclusive horror” mean to you? At Denver Horror Collective, it’s all about opening our doors to dark fiction writers of any background, no matter their publication history. That and twenty bucks cold hard cash.

Thanks to indie and self-publishing, it’s never been easier for us writers to get our work out into the world. At the same time, for most of us it’s tricky as ever to find readers. And that’s where a pack makes all the difference.

Horror Book Club—HOW TO SELL A HAUNTED HOUSE by Grady Hendrix

The club will hold a discussion on Sunday, February 26, at 7:30 pm Pacific / 8:30 pm Mountain. During the session, Mr. Hendrix will join us to chat about his new novel that was called a “creepy, rollicking book [that] will tug at your horror—and heartstrings” by Paul Tremblay.

This free, online event will take place via Zoom with a run time of 90 minutes. To sign up, please email the moderator, A.E. Santana. A Zoom link will be sent to participants closer to the event date. To keep up to date with The Thing in the Labyrinth book club, sign up for the newsletter here.

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.
