Brian Lumley's "The House of Doors" series and Christopher Golden's "Veil Trilogy" are tied for my favorite books. I read novels from time to time but I'm usually entertained by short story anthologies of horror. I love the horror genre but I dislike slasher and/or gore horror.
What I'm Reading
Ellery Queen - July
Rod Serling, Christopher Golden, Brian Lumley, Douglas Clegg, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Dean Koontz, and John Grisham
I think my work is most influenced by the style and vibe of the 1940's Film Noir movies, the bizarre ideas of The Twilight Zone series, and timeless Vintage Horror elements.
