Who needs status updates when you can have a place to keep up with all the coolest people?
This is real and it's awesome. A huge thanks to Sensei Brian Keene for setting this up.
Welcome to the Keenedom, everyone!
A little about me:
I write all manner of horror fiction, dabble in non-fiction as well as science fiction from time to time. I've had a black bear lick my face, shared a ski-lift with President Jimmy Carter, and had actual money paid for someone to kill me. Have fun with all of that in the ask me anything section.
My professional bio:
Wile E. Young is from Texas, where he grew up surrounded by stories of ghosts and
monsters. During his writing career he has managed to both have a price put on his
head and win the 2021 Splatterpunk Award for Best Novel. He obtained his bachelor’s
degree in History, which provided no advantage or benefit during his years as an
aviation specialist and I.T. guru.
His longer works includes Catfish in the Cradle (2019), The Perfectly Fine House (2020),
the Magpie Coffin (2020), Shades of the Black Stone (2022), Clickers Never Die (2022), and
Dust Bowl Children (2022). His short stories have been featured in various
anthologies including the Clickers Forever (2018), Behind the Mask- Tales From the
Id(2018), Corporate Cthulhu (2018), And Hell Followed (2019), Splatterpunk Bloodstains
(2020) and Bludgeon Tools: A Splatterpunk Anthology (2021).
calmtomb: I'm maybe halfway through Stephen King's Fairy Tale. Honestly, the best part was the opening chapters. KOKO is amazing. The whole Blue Rose trilogy is fantastic.

danielkraus: I have no idea what a "Shoutbox" is but I will add to the chorus of Straub's Blue Rose books -- a series that towers over most others.

Rebecca: Just read Straub's collection, Interior Darkness, my first experience with his writing. I found the stories brilliant and disturbing. Often humorous. I'll try KOKO next.

quilly14: I caught the crud. Not the COVID kind, thankfully. Day off gave me time to get some reading done, at least!

carefulken: Please try my video in the Movies and Television post that starts, the US has been warned. I could use some support. And It is a Knock your socks off music video and lots more.

Carver Pike: It's so quiet in here. Hello everybody!

Carver Pike: One of our cats is in heat. So there I was trying to do my day job, recording a voice-over for a tech support training video, and she was in the background whining and moaning. It doesn't matter where in the house I put her. She comes across on the video.

Carver Pike: I need to soundproof my office. It's one of the reasons I've put off narrating my own audiobooks.

Carver Pike: Speaking of Shoutbox, what's your favorite thing to shout? Me? I like to randomly ask, "What's this?" Then I'll pick up whatever the item is, like if it's pickles in the fridge, I'll turn it into the song from A Nightmare Before Christmas. Like...
Feb 2, 2023 21:29:59 GMT
Carver Pike: "What's this? What's this? There's pickles everywhere. What's this? There's mayo over there. What's this? There's ham and yes there's cheese and oh, yes, I must be dreaming. Oh, what's this?" I'm butchering the song but you get the point.
Feb 2, 2023 21:31:06 GMT
Carver Pike: Ok, I've failed at getting this shoutbox thing going. I'm gonna go back to writing my road trip horror story. Talk to you all later!
Feb 2, 2023 21:31:35 GMT
reggielutz: Listen, we can't shout back when our minds are so busy turning a ham and cheese sandwich into an epic, animated musical number. (Also I want to do this the next time I have to eat Ramen Noodles for dinner.)
