From Hell to YouTube

I love making trailers! So I made one for my book.

I also made one for my story, "The Curtain", featuring in Best New Horror 24.

I hope you enjoy them!

My World Fantasy Con schedule

Here's where I'll be and what I'll be up to:

FRIDAY 1st November

3.00 - 4.00 pm . . . I'm on the Machen & Modern Horror panel with Ramsey Campbell, Adam Nevill, Paul Finch, Tim Lebbon and Michael Kelly (moderator). [Cambridge Suite]

The Cabinet of Dr Probert  10.00 - midnight

For those who like to go to sleep suitably chilled, WFC is presenting a pair of special late-night reading events on the Friday and Saturday: From 10:00 pm through midnight on the Friday, The Cabinet of Dr. Probert will be hosted by Victorian psychiatrist and carnival showman Dr. Probert, ably assisted by the mysterious sleepwalker known only as Thana, who will open his cabinet of horrors to present three tales of fantasy and terror for your thrills and delectation. Allow yourself to be drawn gently toward the witching hour by stories from Angela Slatter, John Llewellyn Probert and Reggie Oliver.

SATURDAY 2nd November

noon - 1 pm . . . Launch/signing of The Tenth Black Book of Horror, along with editor Charlie Black and authors John Llewellyn Probert, Anna Taborska, David A Sutton, Gary Power, Ian Hunter, Mike Chinn and David Williamson. [Hall 8]

3.00 - 4.00 pm . . . Launch/signing for Best New Horror 24. [Hall 8]

Dr Probert's House of Horrors  11.00 - midnight

From 11:00 pm until around 12:30 am on the Saturday, the good(?) Doctor will return with his assistant Thana and a battered deck of Tarot cards to introduce three more tales of fantasy and horror in Dr. Probert’s House of Horrors, as those expert practitioners of the macabre Alison Littlewood, Thana Niveau and Ramsey Campbell do their best to assure you that there really are things out there in the shadows waiting to follow you to bed . . . Both spine-chilling events will take place in the Chartwell room, accessible from the 6th floor of the hotel.

And here's the master stalker list of what EVERYONE is doing and where you can find them.

Suspiria vs Black Swan

I'm just learning how to edit movies and the best way to practise is to make it fun. So I've been experimenting with some trailer mashups. Suspiria vs Black Swan is the one I'm most proud of.

There's some other silliness on my YouTube channel so go have a look at my humble efforts. I used some cheesy trailer templates to turn Halloween into both a romcom and a Bond film and I also had some fun with the iconic fight music from "Amok Time".
