Book cover for Doorway to the Deadeye by Eric J. Guignard

Doorways to the Deadeye by Eric J. Guignard – July 26, 2019

Luke Thacker is a drifting hobo in Depression-era America, riding the rails of the nation and surviving by crumbs and hope. Along the way he learns the iconography of transients—the Hobo Code—better than anyone else and deciphers a secret that thrusts him into Athanasia, the middle ground of memories.

He learns that Athanasia exists around us, a realm in which the deceased persevere by how they are remembered, and the memories Luke meets will do anything to not ever be forgotten, whether by trickery, violence, or daring.

Luke learns, too, that what’s remembered yesterday is not always the same as what will be remembered tomorrow, and he sets off to keep alive the memories of those he loves in the way a ’bo does best: telling tales of old legends, and making up new ones alike.

Fifty years later, the tall crossbucks of Luke Thacker are repeated by homeless King Shaw, who’s struggling to keep Luke’s own legend alive and with it, perhaps, his own.

’Cause it don’t matter if you rob banks with a dead John Dillinger, are hunted over the years by vengeful Earp brothers, or go against the monstrous railroad guard, Smith McCain: When a story is told, all who are part of it become a little stronger.

Also recently released:

Horror News on the Web

Graveyard Shift Sisters has an excellent article on “Black Romance in Bones” (an oft-overlooked horror movie that’s also pretty damn awesome) and you guys really need to check it out.

Carpenter has confirmed two new movies in the Halloween saga. Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.

Taiwanese horror game Detention is getting a movie adaptation. We’re stoked! (And maybe Gracie will stop wussing out and play it before the movie is out…)

James Wan has been chosen as director for the I Know What You Did Last Summer remake

And also let us know what you think of this nonsense…

  1. It is a bit bizarre, to try to change the date of Halloween. Still, some communities have decreed the candy-collecting day should be something other than October 31. And I could see why the vendors of costumes and candies would like the date set to a weekend.

    Nevertheless, I fear what will happen. Let’s say that the date is moved to October 26, as it would be this year. Does this mean that all the witches, ghosts, ghouls, and goblins have to stay out for six whole nights before they return to their graves/homes/residences in Hell/graveyards? That could be a bit trying on the nerves. And some of those dark creatures might not stand up under any sunny days in between. Why, this could doom all the horrors! And then what would we do next Halloween? Dress up as IRS collection agents??

    • That would make a great short story!

      • It would have to be set in one town to work; a nationwide outbreak would require a novel.
