On Writing Horror

The Writers Digest website now has a complete table of contents listing for this fall's On Writing Horror, 2nd Edition, edited by Mort Castle. I have to say, I'm thrilled at the company I'm keeping within those pages. My chapter alone, "Eerie Events and Horrible Happenings: Plotting Short Horror Fiction", is bookended by chapters by Joe R. Lansdale and Mort himself.

There are a few unfortunate typos and misspellings on the website, all of which are in the process of being corrected. Alas, it seems the two Ns at the end of Kaufmann has foiled yet another production manager. And though I'm sure he'd welcome being called "The Thomas" in French, Lee Thomas is not, in fact, Le Thomas.

And yet somehow they spelled Piccirilli right on the first try!
