Interview – Alexis Bristowe

How did you first get involved with voice acting? Voice acting as a career was always something in the back of my mind up until recently. Growing up, I loved cartoons and acting on stage, but going into voice acting was half an accident. I remember in 2012 I did some minor voice projects here and there as a hobby and one of the people from those communities suggested I listen to a certain horror anthology podcast. I noticed they…

Interview with C L Raven

How long have you been writing for? We started writing novels when we were 12 – we’re now 35, but we only had our first short story published ten years ago.   You’re a sister writing duo, how does that dynamic help your stories  come to life? It’s great when one of us is stuck, because we just switch, rather than having to stare at a blank page and wondering where the hell our muse has wandered off to. We’re…

Interview with Valeska Griffiths of Grim Magazine and Anatomy of a Scream

Where did the idea to start Anatomy of a Scream come from? I’ve always been pretty fascinated with the darker side of life. My mother loved horror, and I have vivid memories of both hiding from the films she used to watch and sneakily trying to see them for myself. I grew up obsessed with Stephen King novels, 90s teen horror and slashers, ghost stories, and the paranormal. AOAS began as just a quiet, personal blog, where I could practice…

THE LOG HOUSE (Guest Review)

THE LOG HOUSE (Guest Review)

“I know that they are strong and fast. They don’t feel fear, don’t even know what it means. You can’t ward them off with charms and urban legends. They can climb and run and they never tire. Only the light can distract them, and once that has gone, you have nothing. They will see you, and once they have, they will never stop until they have you. If they knew we were here, we’d already be dead.” -Penny, protagonist of…

Interview with Author Baylea Hart

Interview with Author Baylea Hart

*How long have you been writing for?* I’ve been writing since I was about seven years old. I remember being given an old computer with a word processor that I would spend hours typing on in my bedroom. Around that time I also created a little book, made with paper I stapled together, that I put on my classroom bookshelf. It was about a man who killed children on their birthdays, creatively titled The Birthday Man. I coloured it in…

The Woman On the Yellow Bicycle by Augie Peterson

The Woman On the Yellow Bicycle by Augie Peterson

With reluctance, I walked into the stuffy classroom. Hugging my arms close to my chest, I watched my feet walk across the tile floor. A dark haired woman stopped me before I could make my way to the seat I had eyed at the back of the classroom. She smiled, then rested her hands on my shoulders as the last few students hurried into the classroom. “Good morning class” the teacher spoke, massaging my shoulders. “This is Sandy, it’s her…

Interview with author Augie Peterson

*How long have you been writing for?* I typically say I started when I was 10, but in reality, I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I wrote two books when I was younger, one about the secret life of a pet dog and another about a family of talking jaguars. I also wrote poetry when I was younger and filled about three notebooks with half- written stories because I hated to end them *How many rejections…

Condemned: Criminal Origins

Condemned: Criminal Origins

Condemned: Criminal Origins Condemned is a first person survival horror game released in 2005 by Monolith Productions. I have been excited to play this game ever since I found out Monolith was the developers: they have a pretty good track record with horror games, having developed the F.E.A.R. series as well as the criminally underrated 2.5D FPS BLOOD. Needless to say I was wielding a hefty bar of expectations going into this. You play a member of the FBI’s Serial…
