Cold Off the Presses

Yesterday was the official book birthday for It Came from the Multiplex, an anthology of stories inspired by ’80s midnight movies and the places where we watched them, edited by Josh Viola and released by Hex Publishing.





Back when I was first approached to contribute a story for this anthology, the plan was to release it in tandem with the Colorado Festival of Horror. Then 2020 happened. But, even

Look, when they release a new Junji Ito hardcover, I buy it. I don't make the rules. This latest one, though, is kind of an odd fit for just about anyone except Ito completists. For those coming in cold, it's got several emblematic stories, including ...more

In what was, for me, an unusual turn, I had already read all of these stories elsewhere, but it's still nice to have them all in one place, and any story that pits Hellboy against the Lambton Worm - as drawn by Ben Stenbeck - is always gonna get at l ...more

Refocus by Murray Leeder

Probably more like three-and-a-half stars. The problem – to the extent that there is one – is that, for Castle aficionados, much of what is contained in these pages will be retreads of ideas with which you’re already very familiar (even while they fl ...more

Worry Doll by Matt  Coyle

Clear rating
Stuck somewhere between a graphic novel and an illustrated short story, I saw someone describe Worry Doll as "putting an artist's gallery show to narrative," and that's about right. I could almost see this unfolding as a creepy short film.

“He was born of a human-fungal love affair that shook the court of Onddo. His mother was a human, a princess of the court, by the name of ‘Agatha’. His father was the notorious pirate captain, AGARICUS AUGUSTUS — THE PRINCE.”
Orrin Grey, Fungi

“His father was captured shortly after by the AMANITA PHALLOIDES and executed horribly.”
Orrin Grey, Fungi

“Like most pure fungi narratives, its interpretation and retelling into human terms is uncertain.”
Orrin Grey, Fungi

“For these beings, fall is ever the normal season, the only weather, there be no choice beyond. Where do they come from? The dust. Where do they go? The grave. Does blood stir their veins? No: the night wind. What ticks in their head? The worm. What speaks from their mouth? The toad. What sees from their eye? The snake. What hears with their ear? The abyss between the stars. They sift the human storm for souls, eat flesh of reason, fill tombs with sinners. They frenzy forth....Such are the autumn people.”
Ray Bradbury
