The Weird Women of Winterbourne

The Toronto Indie Horror Fest shared an Indiegogo link that caught my eye one day (the Winterbourne series that I’ve previously mentioned). I was curious to find out more about the creators and how they came to be doing a web-series adaptation of Robert W. Chambers, and they were gracious enough to meet with me.  What follows are a few of the questions I asked over an hour’s conversation and their answers. The following may contain some mild spoilers. You can also see a theatre screening (probably the only time) on Thursday April 12. Continue reading

Women in Horror 2018

Because timing for everything is so far off what I thought it’d be, I have no idea if I’ll be able to do anything specific to celebrate Women in Horror this year, but I’ll try. Here’s some of what I’m planning for the month, and some creators (and locals) who I think are worth knowing about. Continue reading

Women in Horror Tribute WIP 2

This is recap of what I’ve been painting so far (actually through week 2 of February, no I didn’t paint anything during the 13th-19th, though I was busy). For more info about the project, check the first post. Here’s a photo of where I’m at now, with all the steps behind the cut.

Women in Horror month update

Gemma Files has been sharing a list of  recommendations for Women in Horror Month on Facebook, with many links to free stories. There’s lots of great lists going around at this time – all worth checking out – but seeing as some are new to me and others I just recognize as names in my ever-growing to be read pile, I thought I’d share for everyone’s benefit. And it’s always great to get free samples.

Where did January Go?

It’s been a pretty shitty month for a lot of people, especially since inauguration. Being Canadian, I’m less impacted than lots of the people I’ve interacted with on here, but we aren’t idle up North, both in showing support for what’s going on in the US, or to ensure the same craziness doesn’t happen here, as racists have been emboldened. Combine that with some preventable issues related to my last job that are going to cost me, and this January kicked my ass. Continue reading

Women in Horror Tribute WIP 1

I think I mentioned my plan to do a tribute to Caitlin R. Kiernan for Women in Horror Month some time ago? If not, I’m going to be painting a few minis and making up a diorama inspired by her story, The Fish Bride. I don’t think I’ll finish during February but I’ll try. Continue reading

Don’t quit your day job unless you want books…

In which I collect books without having the time to read them all. Or more realistically, don’t quit your job if you want even more books, because an income helps.

As a going away present from the job I’ve occupied for roughly the last 2 years, I received two $50 gift certificates to Chapters-Indigo. I don’t really shop there often, because… well, they’re a chain store that’s moving away from selling books. This after they helped decimate “all” the little independent retailers around. They also often only have books I want in Kobo format, and I like my e-books DRM-free.

I’ve been trying to decide how I would celebrate the accomplishments of women in genre this month, and I’ve come up with the following:
