Wrote 2200+ words today–for an anthology I plan to submit to. I hate it at the moment, but it is showing some promise as I move forward. Of course, I’ll hate it more, before I start to like it.

Creeping Crawling Cinema series – at Horror Geeks Magazine

I am currently writing a series of short pieces for Horror Geeks Magazine (a new digital Horror mag which you should be reading, by the way). Each entry is a brief look at some of the films in one of my favorite genre niches, Killer Bugs & Things–everything from the giant ants of THEM! to the swarming tarantulas (with William Shatner) of KINGDOM OF THE SPIDERS to the b-movie servings of the SyFy Channel.

Now that I have a few entries completed, I thought I’d start posting links to them. Hope you enjoy them.

Here is the “prologue”.
