    National Poetry Month Guest Post: Donna Lynch

    Beautiful Little Terrors:  Horror Poetry’s Place in the Genre  By Donna Lynch I’ve had the honor and good fortune to be nominated this year for a Bram Stoker Superior Achievement in Poetry Award for a collection titled WITCHES, beautifully illustrated and designed by my collaborator Steven Archer.

    Guest Post: J. Lincoln Fenn talks Genetic Modification

    We Bring Good Things So they built a $10 million house near my hometown and it was made of plastic, 45,000 tons of it, which they called the “Living Environments Concept House”. In 1989 a house made of plastic didn’t seem like a bad idea. Neither did shoulder pads. And GE Plastics was big where I grew up—plastic wasn’t just something in your fridge, it was the lifeblood of our local economy, and I don’t remember anyone talking about, or even thinking of, a downside. Now we do. Plastic—a durable, easily malleable material—is a bit too durable. It never goes away. The Great Pacific Garbage patch, made of plastic and…
