My recent interview with fellow horror author Nerine Dorman

I think it’s time I start interviewing some other writers now, including the awesome and talented Nerine Dorman. I mean that seriously, and not in some pat on a fellow artist’s back kind of thing like you see on the Oscars. Check out this fun interview from her blog, This Is My World. Lots of talk about animals.

This Is My World by Nerine Dorman

The Bestiarum VocabulumSix of the Best with David Griffith

Today I welcome one of my fellow Bestiarum Vocabulum authors, David Griffith. And sticking with the theme of the anthology, we’re talking about creatures. So, David, what’s your story in the anthology called and what seeded the idea for you?

My story falls under I Is For Imp, titled Ma’s Good Boys. It features an imp named Beazo, a mischievous character I had created in the past, but never knew what to do with him. In my historical research on folklore and religion on the topic of imps, as typically found in hidden in stone carvings in European cathedrals and such, I got the sense they aren’t so much evil as they are just head strong pains in the ass. And that’s precisely what Beazo needed to be.

My latest story unleashed: Ma’s Good Boys

The Bestiarum Vocabulum edited by Dean M. Drinkel

So I thought I would write a proper post abut this new published story, “Ma’s Good Boys.” It falls under the header “I Is For Imp” in the new anthology The Bestiarum Vocabulum, edited by Dean M. Drinkel, published by Western Legends.

“Ma’s Good Boys” follows a day in the life of one tragic George D. Giovanni, not just a good son, but a great son to his late mother, bless her soul. A series of jolting revelations are suddenly sprung on him as a little imp appears in the house he inherited from Ma and causes all sorts of mischief.

This story was a lot of fun to write, mixing elements of horror, humor, and absurdist scenarios. I hope readers will enjoy it as much as I did creating it.

Check out this list of authors, including some Hellraiser and Star Wars alumni, among new and established masters of horror:

Emile-Louis Tomas Jouvet, Jan Edwards, Martin Roberts, Lisa Jenkins, Peter Mark May, Raven Dane, Joe Mynhardt, Rakie Keig, D.T. Griffith, Mark West, John Palisano, Amelia Mangan, Robert Walker, Christine Dougherty, Tim Dry, Nerine Dorman, Dean M. Drinkel, Christine Morgan, Tej Turner, D.M. Youngquist, Jason D.
