Trick Or Treating By Car (and other stories)

Seven stories for Halloween: Trick Or Treating By Car (a story about sadness and loss, death and dying); Separations (a tale of parallel worlds, break-ups, and breakdowns); Magic Trick (the story of a disappearance); The Wedding (unsettling events at a royal wedding); Front Door (an ever-escalating haunting); Flood (the strange tale of a crocodile home invasion); The Second Moon (a final tale of slightly overwrought melancholy).

Home Of Hell

"Home of Hell is an interactive fiction story in which YOU! must brave the horrors of the infamous Home of Hell to say goodbye to your grandmother one final time." A (slightly) humorous homage to classic Fighting Fantasy books (especially Steve Jackson's House Of Hell), this story contains scenes of sadness, despair and the proliferation of infuriating annoyances that lead inexorably to a mounting atmosphere of anxiety, terror and, eventually, scenes of mildly gruesome horror.

Twitch of the Death Nerve

Exploring strange byways of horror with author Max Sparber. I look at horror-themed art, cult films that never really found their cult audience, disquieting comics, and write two-sentence horror stories, along with a amiscellany of other oddities from the world of horror.

The River Caller

I've written and self-published a book. This is my first try, so I decided to go with Amazon Kindle self-publish. This is part 1 of a multi-volume work that I'm planning on publishing in the same manner. I've priced it as low as Amazon will allow (2.99). The River Caller is a story centering around a boy named George, who lives in Ogdensburg, New York, in the late 19th Century. It is primarily a story about life on the Saint Lawrence River, but there are things about George that are a little out of the ordinary. [more inside]

MicroHorror Audio

In a brand new venture, I'm hearkening back to the golden age of radio horror, when voices like Arch Oboler, Boris Karloff and Vincent Price ruled the airwaves. I've recorded two albums so far: MicroHorror, on which I read my own original short-short horror stories, and Legends of Horror, on which I read three classic stories by Edgar Allan Poe, Ambrose Bierce and H.P. Lovecraft in all-new dramatic performances. Streaming is free from Bandcamp, and downloads are pay-what-you-like. Dim the lights, curl up in your favorite coffin and open your mind to horror.
