This is awesome... 

For all of you guitar players out there, Parasit Studio makes custom theremin pedals to turn your guitar tone into a bloody horror movie.

For the more technologically advanced, you can also buy the pieces and wire it yourself. Your old pal HvW has no such technical prowess. Sure, I can dice up a body pretty good, but don't ask me to solder anything. 

Tis the season. Keep it spooky,

Playing Ferryman

You may not know this about me, but I'm not a very handy kind of man. That's why I'm excited to show you my kayak loaded on top of a cart, connected to my bike by a cool device called a Dumb Stick

It recently came to my attention that my house is about 1 mile from a river that runs over 100 miles long. I had a dream that I took a kayak down that river, and it became too potent of an idea to forget.

It turns out the mile trip to the river is one of those elusive ones that manages to be uphill both ways. Nonetheless, I made it! Of course, it started to rain as soon as I put the boat in the water. That didn't deter me, but then the tornado sirens started... and that sent me packing.

Until next time, River,

It is the highlight of my horror writing career to have "A Scream Before Dawn" presented by Shelby Scott on her Scare You to Sleep Podcast.

She did an incredible job bringing the story to life in the way that only she knows how to do. You can find episode 116: Dance Again here, where the story begins at abou tthe 19 minute mark.

Check out everything else Scare You to Sleep has to offer at their website, and on Twitter and Instagram.

Happy Friday, and keep it spooky,
