From the estate of a great friend, Anthony Lyons, for whom I served as executor, I have 3 or 4 demo recordings in 45RPM size made many many years ago. They are by DALLAS MAYR JR.
Google tells me that Dallas might be you. If it is, would you like to have them as a memento of your younger days?
I'd be glad to send them to you.

Comments: Mr Ketchum,
I've been researching agents for my first horror novel. It seems like most want to cover fantasy or vampires. My story is just pure human evil. I'm going to stick my neck WAY out and maybe ask who is your agent? Or someone you might recommend? I need someone who can handle a little gore, and we need a full service agent who can handle a book that should see the big screen.(This opinion is from those who do critiques, so I hope they're right!) By dropping a name, I understand that you in NO way endorce my product. Feel free to send to my personal e-mail if you prefer.
You've been in my shoes. You know how much this means, and how much I thank you! Georgia

Comments: Hi, Folks...DANIEL -- I'll give your writers the same advice Robert Bloch once gave me: "If you don't have to write, don't!" REBECCA -- no, I try not to do cookie-cutter. As I said in the intro to PEACEABLE KINGDOM, I don't know why you put up with me...I'm all over the place...dinner in Cleveland? Sounds fine. CHRISTIAN -- the reason you can't find THE LOST in Germany is that it isn't published yet. First I get the check, then they publish the book. Look for it in another 3-6 months. Should be out by then. Best to all, D.

Comments: Dear Jack, and hello to all the horror fans out there.
I finished reading "Off Season" and "The Lost" a couple of weeks ago...both very different from each other and "The Girl Next Door". Jack, I am delighted to say that you are definitely not a "cookie cutter" author. While I greatly enjoyed all the books, it is as though they could have been written by different people. You have such a diverse style. I plan to go out this weekend and purchase another one or two books I can sink my teeth into ;) Also, in case anyone is as interested in the Sylvia Liken's case as I was after reading "The Girl next Door" there is a lengthy article on it on the "Tru Crime" website that has references to other works based on that case. Jack, I would consider it an honor to cook dinner for you sometime, if you are ever in the Cleveland Ohio area.

Comments: Dear Mr. Ketchum.
Apologies for disturbing you, but I've been made the editor in chief for the October issue of the horror magazine I work for, Necrotic Tissue. One of my new jobs is the helping writers section, and I'm currently compiling a list of tips, just a sentence or two, from many names in the industry.
With your years of experience, I was wondering if you would be willing to share a tidbit of advice for our readers?

Comments: Update for CHRISTIAN -- just got a check for the German edition of THE LOST -- which I'll be happy to cash -- so I guess that's next over there. MICHELE -- thanks for your thoughtful words on THE GIRL NEXT DOOR. Appreciated. GAIL -- I'll give CRANK a try once I plow through some of these others on my shelf. Thanks! As to children...do four cats count? Best to all, D.

Comments: Jack -
I have just gotten into your books and it has been such a fun ride for me. They are all a different experience from book to book, but I was most fascinated by The Girl Next Door.
I knew the history of the Sylvia Likens case before I read it and it was a case that haunted me for a long time. I've read reviews that said your book was just snuff or pornography but I don't see that at all. It is a very intense character study and morality tale with comments about all the players involved, and insights into their motivations and how wrong or right they were. Just reading the facts about what happened to Sylvia Likens is horrifying, more so in the fact that there isn't an explanation out there for why these people did the things they did to her. And maybe it wasn't really your intention, but your story about Ruth and Meg and David sort of helped me come to terms with how the real story of Sylvia and Gertrude could have happened.
Plus, it's just a really good book on its own, for those who can see it for what it truly is.

Comments: Hi, Everyone -- MATTHEW -- Peter's reading was WAY crowded, but fun. Good meeting you there. JIMBO -- actually my giving a nod to THE WOODS ARE DARK was what started a correspondence, and eventually, a friendship between Laymon and I. He'd been reading me and I, him, for quite a while beforehand. I'm not gonna pick a favorite movie any more than I'm gonna pick a favorite book of mine, sorry. I read a lot of British authors in fact. I've recommended Graham Joyce and Tim Lebbon on this board, and recently finished Hilary Mantel's WOLF HALL. Very funny dig at Jerry! The movie of OFFSPRING came before OFF SEASON because the people who hold the rights to the latter haven't raised the money. Don't know if they ever will at this point. GAIL -- hope ADAMS' holds up well. My bet is that it does. Don't know Ellen Hopkins. Want to recommend something? THE WOMAN will come out as a book before the movie -- but Lucky McKee and I concieved both together and made deals for both together, that's the reason for the proximity. JOANNE -- the Dean book didn't inspire GIRL NEXT DOOR, Nash's entry in BLOODLETTERS AND BADMEN did. Read it later, though. You shouldn't have a lot of trouble finding Edward Lee books -- Leisure publishes a number of them. Just go to their site and order. REUBEN -- my walk-on in HEADER was the first acting I'd done in about 20 years -- that's why I probably seemed more comfy bartending in THE LOST. That and the fact that I do know my bars. Hope you enjoy THE CROSSINGS. GEORGIA -- glad you liked the OFF SEASON audio. There's one out for HIDE AND SEEK as well, and hopefully more to follow. CHRISTIAN -- don't know which of my books will come out next in Germany, but they're selling well there evidently, making the publishers happy, and happy publishers tend to keep buying. DOUG -- good seeing you at Dark Delicacies. Never let an author intimidate you -- if he does he's an asshole and shouldn't be signing books in public in the first place. Thanks for the invite. May take you up on that one of these days. And please do e-mail me the photos. Best to all, D.

Joking. ;) Read the book and you'll understand!

Comments: HI EVERYONE,
How can we even have a sequel to offspring called " the woman " when the damm book hasn't even come out yet ? it's not even due till next year ? like 2011 joyride the book is coming out in june of this year,now that may be a movie, I have not read the book, but if its jack ketchum... it's gotta be discustingly delicious !!
968 Fri March 26 2010 - 20:16:48
Offspring was made first because the movie rights to Off Season were already sold. There is a script for Joyride i think too. Maybe it will get made someday. I can't understand the new movie being called Offspring: The Woman though. That pretty much means it's a sequel to offspring! Does that mean Off Season doesn't matter? And as far as I'm aware not too many horror fans were too happy with Offspring the film..so why name ANOTHER movie after it? Bad marketing...but only in my opinion :P
969 Fri March 26 2010 - 10:43:15
Comments: Hey Jack [or anyone that can answer my question]
Why was Offspring made into a movie first? It seems like a pretty dumb-shit thing to do. Will there ever be an Off season movie?
Sorry if this has been asked before.
I hope there is a Joyride movie in the future - that would make a hell of a fuckin' movie!
Then again...we all know the hisory of Hollywood & movie adaptations in general...

Comments: Mr. Ketchum,
Thanks for the great weekend! My husband and I listened to the audio book of Off Season. Horrifically amazing! Are there plans to put any more books on audio? We’d love it! We can read, but my husband has a tragic disease that has withered his hands, so he’s unable to hold books or turn pages. Audio books have been a godsend to him.
Keep writing! You’re the BEST! Georgia
