Pop Cultist Interview - Movie News

Had the pleasure of speaking with the new podcast and web presence, Pop Cultist, created and hosted by writer, reviewer, and zombie aficionado Tony Schaab. The show is co-hosted by Tony’s accomplice in all things nerdy, his wife Emily Schaab. We talked about everything from my new novel, Night of the ZomBEEs to how to make a mixed geeky marriage work. Tony’s knowledge of the undead genre and culture made the conversation a lot of fun for me, and I got to plug away at the new project I’m involved with, a Night of the Living Trekkies movie-like venture, currently in pre-production.  Follow the link to give the interview a listen and show Pop Cultist some love. I know an upcoming episode will have an interview with well-known horror scribe Jonathan Maberry  

Night of the ZomBEEs is doing well on Amazon. It’s available in trade paperback and kindle. An audio version should be out sometime in December produced and performed by Parsec Award winning podcaster Rish Outfield, co-host of The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine, one of my favorite podcasts, co-hosted Bigg Anklevich. If you wish to receive a review copy please email me at 

And lastly if you’re looking for something fun to read this holiday season, can I recommend Santastein by Mr. Brian K. Morris. Read my review here and at goodreads. 

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I think if Mary Shelly had an irreverent sense of humor and had penned Frankenstein during the height of the Christmas season she could have written Santastein. Brian K. Morris takes our classic, beloved horror story, Frankenstein, and mashes it up, at warp speed, into the holidays. There is short list of writers that have made me laugh out loud; Douglass Adams, Terry Pratchett, Jeff Strand, and now Brian K. Morris.

So Much Buuzzzzz!

Hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween. Mine was a little slower than usual but I did get in a really good scare. Several middle schoolers dressed in Star Wars costumes walked up to my door and before they had even rung the doorbell, a carefully placed demon (string operated) flew up, roared, and Jedi screaming could be heard up and down my street. The trick or treater dressed as the new Star Wars character Kylo Ren, (suppose to be the new big bad guy) dropped his full bag of candy and lightsaber on my porch, before running for his life. I'm not a jerk, I did not keep the candy or the lightsaber (although I really wanted to,it  was the new tri-saber) I returned everything. I got at least a dozen good screams throughout the night, but the Star Wars kids were my favorite. I wonder if kids dressed in Star Trek outfits would have been a little braver?

The kindle edition of Night of the ZomBEEs is now available, and the Audio Book will be ready in December produced by Parsec award winning podcaster Rish Outfield. Very excited this is finally getting out there and read. I think its the best thing I've produced since Night of the Living Trekkies.

The book is getting a bit of buzz, no pun intended, and if you need a review copy please contact myself or Janice Bohica at:

Thanks to the members of the LA Chapter of the Horror Writers Association for participating in an event that raised needed funds for Pet Orphans of Southern California. I contributed a few books and posters but theses handsome HWA members went the extra mile and not only contributed books but showed up to sign copies for fans. 

In other news, my article "The Horror of Star Trek" was published right before Halloween on the Geeks of Doom entertainment web site. Its a fun little guide describing, and recommending some of the best Star Trek episodes to view if you are looking for a little horror in your Science Fiction. And if you do not follow and read Geeks of Doom, you are really missing out. It is a fantastic news source for comics, video games, genre movies and all things geeky.

Lastly, but by no means least, I'm really looking forward to my next writing project. In the next few days I'll be working on a film project and I'd like to say more about it, but it's just a little early for details. But I'm as excited about this project as I was the day Quirk Books said they wanted to buy Night of the Living Trekkies. I will share when I can.

Please take care of one another
