Comments: I just got the movie Header at a horror convention this weekend, and it's signed by you! Bought it from Synapse. I watched the movie today and thought I knew what a header was. But I didn't know it was THAT!! LOL I think I am scarred for life now!
Really enjoyed your interview on the extras. Talking in your sleep.....and Edward Lee's version of that night. Hilarious!! I would love to see more interviews like that. You are very entertaining!

Comments: Happy Almost-Halloween! Are you all dressing up? As what? Just for fun, let me know! NICOLE -- good meeting you too. But c'mon, you can read SHE WAKES without breaking the binding. I know you can! BEN -- I won't tell you what's in THE BOX, but I'll give you a broad hint. The boy TELLS his sisters what's in the box. A FAN -- thank you. SIMON -- thank you. GAIL -- see if you can get your hands on some Graham Joyce, particularly THE TOOTH FAIRY and SMOKING POPPY. Graham's terrific. SIRENA -- I do have one audio book out and will have more in the future, definitely. But HIDE AND SEEK is available from Dark Realms Audio. Trick 'r Treat, everybody... - D

Comments: Hi there. I have a question, and I figured I would go straight to the author for it. I am blind and cannot read print, yet I have yet to find an electronic or audio version of The Girl Next Door. I've looked everywhere, and everywhere I go I merely find print print print copies. Will this story be extended to the blind as well either in braille, audio book or purchased electronic ebook at any time? I know I am not the only who would appreciate being brought into the world you have created there. I have heard such incredible tales of the story, and I would greatly love to read it as well. Please take this into consideration, as I am not certain if it's at your behest that no such copies are made, or if it is just...others making that choice.
Thank you SO much. I hope you have a wonderful holiday. *smiles*

Comments: Hello everyone,
boy, you guys are crazy !!! I think that this is such a great site that you can actually speak to your favorite authuor and he REPONDS !!
JACK KETCHUM is by far the best at what he does, I have such a hard time finding his material and I can hardly find anything that compares to it, you should feel privliaged that he takes things with a warm heart and no intentions of disrespecting anyone, also, if anyone can recommend anyone that comes close to his writing I would greatly appriciate it , as I'M running out of material to read. has anyone read send me no flowers by jenny tomlin it is extemely not for the faint at heart, it is very disurbing, in regards to how people could treat another human being this way , and it s about control, anyway, looking forward to any feed back,

Email: RE: Keene
Comments: Adding to the post below: it does have to be said that Mr. Keene does seem to be a very nice guy, and makes a great effort to communicate with his readers. The fact that my interactions with his message board have ended in banning probably reflect my faults rather than his. That said, Mr. Ketchum seems to have a less in-your-face approach to his readers, and this disarms my natural tendency to criticize. That and the fact that he's simply a wonderful writer...
961 Thu October 22 2009 - 22:49:46
Comments: Seems to me that Mr. Ketchum is fairly relaxed when it comes to his message board. Try posting on Brian Keene's message board - say anything that is deemed inappropriate by the moderators and you get banned for life. I even had the honor of being told by Mr. Keene to "get the fuck out". Mr. Ketchum would never stoop so low...

Comments: Consider for a moment that the posts you see on this board are not the only forms of correspondence that Mr. Ketchum receives. Just because a person was playing "nice" on this board doesn't mean that they weren't sending malicious/threatening messages elsewhere. Ketchum has the right to delete or block people from accessing his board, MySpace and FB pages for reasons that do not need to be disclosed to the general public. It's not fair for anyone to second guess his decisions...so why don't we just drop it and get back to talking about our favorite Ketchum books?

Comments: How is my post bitter? The admin wrote something that I don't agree with because the post I came to read was deleted. All I said was that the girls post contained no threat so it seems odd it's gone as the admin says he and Jack only delete threatening or mean posts. Hers was neither. Jack didn't respond meanly to her-but she said he told several people on myspace to delete her.
And she was upset about this and also that he gave her no explanation why-just blocked her with no nice email kindly explaining why. Whatever-I just felt bad for her. She seemed so upset! I'm not bitter at all-I'm a happy camper in life!
Her name was Jennifer by the way-she linked her myspace.
She's definitley not a spammer-I just added her.
964 Wed October 21 2009 - 20:00:49
Comments: Jack's shit gets hacked into alot...or used to. When I first met him he told me to friend him on myspace and I had to send the fucking thing like 10 times, than finally came on here..posted something...and got excepted. I think I know the post your talking about Tracy..i read it too. Something like she was trying to get added to his myspace and he said something about it being like spam mail or something coming from her profile? I do know that he wrote this in a very nice way! There wasn't any rudeness in the reply he made that I could see.
Oh well, hope your not always this bitter :)

Comments: Actually, I beg to differ with the administrator of this site..The reason I came back here in the first place was to re-read a long comment a girl left here. She said Ketchum had deleted her and told all his friends to delete her too on that myspace site. I felt bad for her-she seemed really upset. Her post is gone-it's been deleted. But I had read it already. It contained no threat to Ketchum at all. It didn't give out any personal info about him, his family, children he may have or whatever. It just said she had been a fan and now she is hurt and confused by him bad mouthing her on myspace to people who then deleted her. I went through a similar thing on myspace with an ex, so I felt bad for her. I only come to this site when another board that I frequent links it when there is drama going on here, which is seldom as negative posts seem to get deleted. That girls post, the myspace girl contained no threat to ketchum, his life, or anyone else's on here. I am certain of this. Yet it is gone.
So I am just wondering why..and also, if Ketchum is sending out emails by mistake asking for nude pics of girls-I want to know why I didn't get one? LOL! That girls post claimed she got an email from him by mistake asking her for a sexy pic. That's hilarioous!
Myspace-You gotta love it!

Thank you for your time and I hope to contact you again.

Comments: Dear Mr. Ketchum,
I'm an idiot. I was writing to ask for my college theatre. Peace College Theatre. We want to read aloud one of your great stories for our Halloween reading on October 29. So sorry I didn't put that information before. Our website is theatre.peace.edu.
Your books and stories are fantastic!
971 Mon October 19 2009 - 18:24:23
Comments: thank you very much mr. ketchum for your response, this was held in toronto from what i can find on the internet, this is close to me, thought you might be out in Quebec or more west, would love to know if you post on your boards, when you come to canada ?
thank you again, as I would very much like to meet you
P.S Any new books in the works?

Comments: Dear Mr. Ketchum,
We'd like to read aloud one of your stories from Peaceable Kingdom at our Halloween reading for our theatre. Can we have permission? We are charging $5.00 to get in and our theatre seats 87. I hope it's OK to ask on this message board.

Comments: Back from Worcester...let me say, first, to GAIL, that I do go to Canada now and then -- last month I was at the Rue Morgue Festival and may be back next year, since it was a very good one. Sorry I missed you at the last. Then, to eveyone else -- and sorry to make this short and I promise to be more specific next time, but I came home to the usual slew of business-related e-mails -- that I do welcome criticism and wouldn't have it any other way. CLIVE, I was just tweaking you with my "tell us what you really feel" comment. Maybe humor doesn't come across so well on the internet, I dunno. But all debate is welcome here just so long as it doesn't get personal or nasty. So far, I have no problem with anything here. Have at it, guys! Best, D.

Comments: To all, I have read the posts and have no problem with criticism and agree with others, it takes constructive criticism to become better at what ever you do. But also you should take the work in question a little more lightly and take it for what it is, an escape, something to take us away from the everyday drivel that makes up the work week. Maybe there is a generation gap here. I grew up watching old horror flicks on Saturday night, like 'The Amazing Dr. Phibes', have ya seen that one? Vincent Price was great. Was it an academy award film? No. But did it entertain, thrill, and for its time, gross us out? Yes! I also don't want to down play Mr. Ketchums writing either, just read 'The Rifle' in 'Peaceable Kingdom'. This short story hooked me for good and I have never looked back. Stephen King has been mentioned in recent posts, out of all of his movies most have been the late night Saturday night variety. Is this a bad thing? I don't think so, for me it is almost retro and welcoming. I'm not trying to start or entertain arguements, but merely stating a fans opinion. Maybe we should watch a horror film for entertainment and enjoy and all just lighten up. Have we also forgotten it's October? C'mon get in the spirit of things!
