Comments: Hello Jack!
Again, thank you so much for reading and answering these posts. It means a lot (to me, at least), to be able to connect with a great writer.
My question for you is, have you seen the show American Horror Story, and if so, what are your thoughts about it?

Comments: Hi Jack,
The Girl Next Door movie turned me on to your name. I've only read Stranglehold and Off Season so far, but you are now one of my favorite writers and already a big influence, right up there with Elmore Leonard. I'm going to read the Girl Next Door next--I hear it has a different ending than the basement showdown, which is good, that part was a little silly. Just wanted to say thanks for the great stories!

Comments: Howdy...IAN -- you're preaching to the choir, but of course you knew that. And yes, it was Chris Sivertson who brought my stuff to Lucky's attention, and Luck optioned THE LOST for Chris to direct. FEDY -- Oz still sounds good, but let's lose the sharks, okay? JIM -- glad you liked THE WOMAN. I saw HOST, and it's a terrific monster movie. Guys, you should pounce on this one if you haven't already...best, D.

Comments: Ian- Of course unholywood is going to get it wrong. Jack's OFFSEASON has been ripped off how many times? I saw THE WOMAN on Chiller...I dug it...(has anyone seen Host...the korean flick?).....GO BLUE....March Madness...."Hail to the Victors!!!"

Comments: Hi Jack,
I couldn't agree more. The Beast House trilogy is what I read first and so far it stays unsurpassed.
I am now into Funland, quite fun indeed!
It's amazing how Laymon can get to you and hook you up. I won't be satisfied until I have read all that is around. Last time this happened,well Jack, it happened with you.
I am so happy that we can have something more to talk about when we meet in Oz for sharks and drinks (see I have definetely dropped the "if"?)
ps thanks Jim so much for all the suggestions :)

Comments: Hey Jack, that's pretty lame that the Chiller channel would cut up 'The Lost' because of swearing. I don't get why American network and cable television has such an aversion to sex and language but has no trouble showing tons of violence and gore. It's a very bizarre culture we live in. If I'm not mistaken, the director of 'The Lost' was the one that first introduced his college classmate Lucky McKee to your books.

Comments: Afternoon, folks...JIM -- no, not CHRISTINE (that's not one of my favorites) but read some of his later books, like FULL DARK, NO STARS, LISEY'S STORY (a favorite of mine) or just for fun, CELL, UNDER THE DOME or 11/23/63. Then there's BLACK HOUSE, with Mr. Straub. Excellent! Don't sell King short. As to Richard Laymon, steal away...because, while I like these titles...FEDY -- my favorites are the BEAST HOUSE series. For sheer outrageousness. Laymon's addictive, I know. Read him the same way, in great big gulps. Best, D.

Comments: hey fedy: NIGHT IN LONESOME OCTOBER is one of the creepiest novels I have read. MIDNIGHT"S LAIR was my first Laymon novel and is still a fav. QUAKE, TO WAKE THE DEAD, ISLAND, ONE RAINY NIGHT, THE STAKE, AFTER MIDNIGHT. Shoot, I could go on....Opps. Sorry Jack if I stole your Laymon thunder

Comments: Hi Jack,
I am in a Laymon reading frenzy. I discovered him quite late (did I mention his books in Oz are quite impossible to find too?) but, now that I have, I simply can't stop. Bought a whole bunch of them and I am divouring each and every one of them at a speed that, even given my crazy standards, has to be seen to be believed.
I was wondering which your favourite of his would be, and if you have any suggestion for me at all :)

Comments: I knew Straub was hard...King can suck it...!do you want me to read Christine?...A haunted computer?...I dug MRS. God..Robert Aickmanesque.......
61 Sun March 10 2013 - 16:43:26
Comments: Hi out there...CATHY, you never know, maybe BIGHEAD will play a festival there, right? GAIL -- request: no computer shorthand, okay? I'm a dinosaur who really has trouble deciphering it...thanks! IAN -- no, never met Tom Six, though I'd like to. You're right about #2 being a complete 180 in the creative department. Maybe #3 will be too. We can certainly hope...Best, D.
62 Sat March 09 2013 - 21:54:01
Comments: Hey Jack, thanks for the clarification. I actually really liked Human Centipede 1 a lot more than 2. I did like how completely different the sequel was though, it was a creative 180 from the first film and very ballsy. The third one's gonna be set in America, so I'm really looking forward to that. I listened to the commentary on #2 and that main actor did seem like a really smart and nice guy. Did you have a chance to meet the director Tom Six? I think he'd be perfect to adapt something of yours.

Comments: wow Bighead being made, thats awesome, just watched the trailer, unfortunalty it wont come over to a uk cinema i doubt :( ill have to wait for it to come out on dvd.
65 Thu March 07 2013 - 19:54:09
Comments: My mistake, IAN -- I was referring to HUMAN CENTIPEDE #2 -- there is no SERBIAN #2. Duh...sorry...
66 Thu March 07 2013 - 03:46:13
Comments: Hey Jack, what's this '#2' you're referring to? Is it the title of a movie, cause I've never heard of it. I've also never heard of 'The Bighead' either. I'm always interested in anything you recommend though.
67 Sun March 03 2013 - 16:34:54
Comments: Hi guys...Florida was great. There's this great big bright thing in the sky you can...oh wait, that's the sun...JOHN -- no problem recommending SHOCK TOTEM. Excellent magazine! GAIL -- persevere, persevere, TURN has its rewards...JIM -- THE STAND was nowhere near one of my favorites, but you should read some of Stephen's later books -- hell, many of them -- though Mr. Straub is always a good choice too. IAN -- so you liked SERBIAN, huh? Did you see #2? I think it's better in a lot of ways. I met the guy who plays the lead recently and he's actually a sweetie in real life, honest...BOB, JIM -- glad you both liked RIGHT TO LIFE. And yes, word is that Lee is shooting THE BIGHEAD as we speak. And I will definitely attend the premier. Best to all, D.
68 Sun March 03 2013 - 11:16:31
Comments: BIGHEAD can actually be seen?... Wow...Next thing you know : COWS the movie...Ian - I agree: RIGHT TO LIFE was great. The ending really got to me

Comments: I have to disagree with you guys on 'Survivor'. I thought the plot was ridiculous and none of the characters were interesting to me, it reminded me of the Nicolas Cage movie '8mm' which I also didn't like. I recommend the movie 'A Serbian Film' for a good version of a making of a snuff film movie. Jack's story 'Right to Life' is also very similar, but much better. I really want to read this book 'Cows" though, it sounds interesting.

Comments: Hey Gail: "Twist of the Screw": I've heard that one from many a flirt... Laird Barron's THE CRONING is creepy, cosmic goodness. Actually scary. Yog-Sothwitch would be proud!!!...Just started reading Straub's MRS. GOD... I have an aversion to king. This is me at age 18 : "The Bullshit stand Sucked!!!"

Comments: Hello Everyone,
Just received cows in the mail, I am still reading twist of the screw and am having a hard time reading it Jack, Its like it is written in the 1700's the vocabulary is a little hard to follow, I had the same but worst experiments with 120 days of sodom - that was really hard to understand, I guess I just prevail with screw and see how it goes. Any comments from you or the readers here ?

Comments: Hope this finds everyone well and swell. Always glad to scroll through here and add to my evergrowing list of things I must read.
I also wanted to plug (and if D minds, he may delete it) the latest issue of SHOCK TOTEM. We were lucky enough to interview Mr. ketchum in the last issue and this one finds our pages graced with a rare short story from "the scariest man in America." A dark satirical exercise, this one.
Please support the authors you love and the vehicles that ferry their work.

Comments: Leaving tomorrow for a week in Florida so I thought I'd check in early...GAIL -- I'm betting THE TURN OF THE SCREW really gets under your skin. I know it did mine. JIM -- only read Barron's short stuff. How's the novel. Yeah, COWS is a piece of work. I'll check out THE HIGH LIFE once I get my stomach back....best to all, D.
75 Tue February 19 2013 - 19:02:15
Comments: Jack- I have to agree with you. Stokoe's COWS is one of the most harrowing (revolting) reading experiences i have endured. I let a friend borrow it and he couldn't finish it. Stokoe's HIGH LIFE is another mind melter......Has anyone read Laird Barron? Im reading his first novel: THE CRONING. I've read alot of his short stories (The Imago Sequence etc.) and the guy is brilliant. I feel stupid when I read him, he is an extremely intelligent writer. He is definitely the modern day H.P. Lovecraft.
