latest work, The Graveyard Book
, is a kind of undead Jungle Book, with a man-child being raised by various ghosts and ghouls rather than animals. He's been the whole thing a chapter at a time on each stop of his American promotional tour
, and posting the videos online
about it of course), which means that with tonights reading the entire thing will be available online.

It was the 80's. We were younger then, and anything seemed possible. So it all seemed part of Destiny when my very first screenplay was bought and produced; fame and fortune was surely just around the corner. HA! Fat chance.

Australian short film - I Love Sarah Jane
'Jimbo is 13. All he can think about is one girl, Sarah Jane. And no matter what stands in his way - bullies, violence, chaos, zombies - nothing is going to stop him from finding a way into her world.' NSFW - swearing and gore. SLYT.

has a bunch of original audio dramas in the sci-fi, horror, and suspense vein. Think of it as your local community audio-only theatre, or not-actually-old-timey old-time radio. [more inside]

The Enigma of Amigara Fault
is an absolutely compelling and terribly creepy short manga story by Junji Ito
about mysterious human-shaped holes exposed in a cliff by an earthquake, each perfectly matching the outline of someone who is then compelled to enter the confining, claustrophobic darkness. For more of Ito in English, there is Falling
. Make sure to read from right to left.

The stalled documentary American Scary
may never see a DVD player, but that doesn't stop you from celebrating the lost art of the late night horror host. Vampira
, Sinister Seymour
, Doctor Madblood
, Joe Bob
, and many more
are all on the tubes. Who was your favorite?

Handbags of Horror
High-fashion handbags: They're expensive and ugly. So ugly, in fact, that they could only have been inspired by monsters from horror movies. Radar compares and contrasts.
