It’s Your Turn! Guest Blogs from Readers and Writers

This is the part of the web site where you get to express your ideas, questions, hopes, values, and thoughts in general about the challenges and excitements of writing, creating, and promoting your work – or to share the fun and thrill of what you’re reading.

I’m asking both readers and writers whom I know – and I’ll eventually go out on a limb and put out a call to some people I don’t know, but who I think will have something interesting to say.  The focus will be mainly on mystery/suspense, romance, fantasy, horror, SciFi, or YA, in keeping with the interests of most of my readers – but that doesn’t mean that I won’t have writers bring in topics or authors that you might not quite expect to fit these areas.  So, do respond here on this site or by sending me an email at  syang@worcester.edu.  But keep it clean – Natasha will be watching!

 

If you have ideas for a blog appropriate to this site (250-500 words), contact me at syang@worcester.edu and I can see if your proposal would work.  All final decisions for editing rest with me (and my co-editor), since I’m the one everyone will blame if something looks hinky, content- or grammar-wise!

This month’s feature:

20. “The Lewton Legacy”

This month’s blog is by author Michael Samerdyke.  Mike shares with us his inspiration by a filmmaker whom I agree is one of the most haunting, even poetic, creators of horror in the golden age:  Val Lewton.   Michael, who holds a  Master’s in History from Ohio University, is a writer of both fiction and work on popular culture.
