Chris Mentillo
“When I first met my wife, Gloria over 20 years ago, I recalled being in a local laundry reading a homicide detective magazine based on gruesome true stories of serial killers, etc. Gloria asked me what I was reading, and I just stood there in awe - embarrassed, and in disbelief. I didn’t want her to think I was some kind of weirdo. Horrors of life and human behavior have always fascinated me, even as far back as I can remember.”
Chris Mentillo

“(Washington) Irving was only the first of the writers of the American ghostly tale to recognize that the supernatural, exactly because its epistemological status is so difficult to determine, challenged the writer to invent a commensurately sophisticated narrative technique.”
Howard Kerr, The Haunted Dusk
