Bye Bye World

Bye Bye World – You Can Keep Your Brains and Crossbow

I love a good end of the world yarn. Always have. As a kid, Dawn of the Dead was life changing for me. The world as we know it goes kaput, and 4 survivors get to live in a mall! Better still, they get to kill zombies! I thought, Armageddon can be so cool – as long as I’m one of the survivors and get to pick where I spend my days.

Growing up at the tail end of the Cold War era, the threat of nuclear annihilation was always top of mind. It was reflected in movies like Testament (a real tear jerker) and The Day After, a TV miniseries that had a nation glued to the boob tube. Russia went through perestroika and we were more concerned with getting laid, high and having nothing but a good time (thank you, Poison).

Since 2001, the world has changed, and with it, our story preferences. It’s strange but true, the darker we see our future, the darker the things we watch and read. Take The Walking Dead, the most popular show on TV. I mean, even the normies are digging it, which is starting to wear on the true horror hounds out there. That show is nothing but a hot, sweaty, hopeless, drawn out apocalypse. Time will tell what our fascination is with the zombie aspect. I think we’re too close to the source material now to see the forest for the trees. But the core of the narrative on the show is this – the shit has hit the fan, maybe the dead are the lucky ones.

Living as close to a terrorist target as I do, I’m very cognizant of how my day can go from ordinary to hell in a moment’s notice. It’s this creeping dread that got me to write Tortures of the Damned. A lot of us spend our lives asking what if. Tortures of the Damned explores the worst answers to what if, just like The Walking Dead and so many other shows and books, with one exception – when you die, you die. Zombies aren’t real and will never be a concern should things go to hell. If I was going to write an end of the world thriller, I had to make it seem as real as possible, while still throwing in a bit of the fantastic but possibly plausible to make it something you’ve never seen before.

Little kids now have zombie backpacks and soccer moms put little family zombie stickers on the back window of their SUVs. How is that possibly scary anymore?
Electromagnetic-pulse bombs (bombs that wipe out all electronics and power) and chemical weapons. 

Those are truly terrifying and all too real. Very bad people have possession of these weapons. It’s only a matter of when they will decide to use them and where.
Tortures of the Damned explores a very real potential future, one without the undead but oh so much worse. No shopping malls to whoop it up this time. But there is always the strength of the human spirit, and the will to survive. It’s the paths one has to take in order to live another day that are truly engrossing.

First, the electricity goes—plunging the east coast in darkness after a devastating nuclear attack. Millions panic. Millions die. They are the lucky ones. 
Next, the chemical weapons take effect—killing or contaminating everything alive. Except a handful of survivors in a bomb shelter. They are the damned.
Then, the real nightmare begins. Hordes of rats force two terrified families out of their shelter—and into the savage streets of an apocalytic wasteland. They are not alone. Vicious, chemical-crazed animals hunt in packs. Dogs tear flesh, cats draw blood, horses crush bone. Roaming gangs of the sick and dying are barely recognizable as human. These are the times that try men’s souls. These are the tortures that tear families apart. This is hell on earth. The rules are simple: Kill or die.

We Are Monsters

Hey David, thanks for having me on your site. It’s very kind of you. I, therefore, must apologize for the grotesqueries about to ensue.

You know one thing that sucks about being human? Getting sick. And I’m not talking about the sniffles or a stomachache. Although I whine like a freshly born baby anytime I have either. I’m talking about the funky, crippling, life-altering illnesses that skulk this planet and infect the truly unfortunate.

My debut novel, We Are Monsters, deals with mental illness, with an emphasis on illness. So I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of the most horrific diseases and disorders that afflict mankind.

Warning, if you are hypochondriac, you may want to stop right here.

Here are 5 of the most disturbing diseases and mental disorders I’m presently aware of, in no particular order:

1) Fish Odor Syndrome: Have you ever forgotten to use deodorant and then realized you had terrible B.O.? Like, eye-watering B.O.? It happened to me once in middle school and I skipped class to take a bath in the restroom sink. Imagine, then, having your breath, sweat, and urine produce the pungent smell of rotting fish, with nothing you can do about it. Welcome to the world of trimethylaminuria, which prevents a persons body from breaking down a fishy-smelling organic compound found in food. And there’s no known cure.

2) Alien Hand Syndrome: Turns out the familiar plot device used in several horror flicks is an actual disorder. People with alien hand syndrome have full sensation in the errant hand, but it acts possessed. The 'alien' hand can undo buttons, manipulate tools, and even grope people without its owner’s consent.

I can see it now. “Hey, get your hands off me you pervert!”

“What? It wasn’t me! It’s my alien hand.”

The syndrome is caused by a separation of the lobes of the brain either through injury or surgery, and there's no cure other than to distract the wayward hand with an object to handle.

3) Myiasis: Okay, this one… This one I can barely think about without retching. Myiasis is the parasitic infestation of the body of a live mammal by fly larvae (maggots) that grow inside the host while feeding on its tissue. You’ve seen what maggots do to decomposing flesh, right? Well, Myiasis is where they do that to you while you’re alive. You think maybe you have a zit developing on your neck or arm, then… Surprise, you’ve got maggots!

4) Walking Corpse Syndrome: Also called the Cotard Delusion, this is a rare, though real, neuropsychiatric disorder in which patients believe that they have died, do not exist, are putrefying, or have lost their vital organs. In some cases, they can even smell the rotting flesh. While they may resemble zombies, they, fortunately, do not crave the taste of human brains. Unfortunately, because they believe themselves to be dead, they stop caring for their basic needs, and many die from starvation.

5) Tree Bark Skin Disorder: Ever had a wart? What were you willing to do to have it removed? I had one. I went to a dermatologist who burned it off with a freaking laser.

[Dermatologist]: “I’m now going to shoot your skin with a laser beam to remove your wart.”

[Me]: “Whatever, man. Just get it off me.”

People with Tree Bark Skin Disorder, or Epidermodysplasia Verruciformisgo as it’s technically called, have warts that grow so voraciously across their entire body they give one’s skin the appearance of tree bark. Good news: they can be removed through surgery. Bad news: they grow right back.

While reading about these ailments is interesting, I do not bring them up to poke fun. I find them fascinating, sure, but I also have sympathy for anyone suffering from one of these devastating disorders. I can’t imagine what it would be like, and I have a vivid imagination.

Part of my aim in writing my debut novel, We Are Monsters, was to try and get inside the minds of people who suffer from tragic mental disorders.

According to recent studies, 1 in 5 Americans suffer from various mental illnesses each year, so it’s a widespread concern. But, again, my aim wasn’t exploitation. I came at it from a compassionate point-of-view.

In my story it’s the doctors who are forced to confront the inner demons they have inside in order to see their patients in a new light. So far readers have been picking up on that twist and enjoying the fresh perspective.

For instance, author, Mercedes M. Yardley, said this about the book: “WE ARE MONSTERS is a smart, elaborate novel that weaves together the best and worst of us. Complex, terrifying, and still humane, this book moved me to both horror and compassion, and that's a difficult thing indeed.”

The Origins of Heroes

                                                                 “The Origins of Heroes”
                                                   by Glenn Rolfe, Author of Boom Town

Okay, so my new Horror/Sci-Fi novella, Boom Town, has nothing to do with super heroes…but then I thought, or maybe it does! Not in the super-human sense, but in the ultimate human sense. The two pre-teen characters, Brady and Kim, go through some things in this story, and willingly put themselves in situations too, that speaks volumes of the greatness we all have within ourselves, and of the many super things we are all capable.

Where’s this going?

Well, with the release of the new Avengers movie less than a month away, I want to talk about a couple of my favorite comic book movies. As a kid I fell hard for ALL four of the Superman movies. I was also fond of the Spiderman flicks. Then, of course, there was the Incredible Hulk TV series and the “Greatest American Hero” (not a comic, but I had to throw Ralph in here). I thought about all of these cool flicks we’ve been given over the last 15 years or so. And despite loving a lot of them, for me two stand head and shoulders above the rest: “Batman Begins and “Iron Man.”

What do they both have in common? Origins. I’m actually not hip to the comic origins, but these two films f*&#ing rule. And it’s the long beginnings that make the awesome middles and ends kick so much ass. It’s the writing and the directing, and it’s the actors, too. Robert Downey Jr. and Christian Bale disappear. I see only Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne. And it’s not just them, either. The supporting actors in these films are top notch, as well. Morgan Freeman, Jeff Bridges, Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard, Liam Neeson, Katie Holmes….all right, I added Katie because she’s cute, but the rest kill it.  

It shouldn’t be a surprise that if one of these films is my favorite, of course the other has to be right behind. We have similarities in Tony Stark and Bruce Wayne. Both are good-looking, rich kids. Both have dead parents. Both are extremely smart. Neither has “super human” powers, yet both develop tools to make them appear as though they do. In the films, they are each separated from the rich homes that they live in and find themselves in harsh conditions on the other side of the planet. Sure, how and why they end up there is different, but the results are the same. These men change. These men see the world outside of themselves and hear a calling. They have the means to become proactive in saving those who need saving. And they do. And they do it in f&*%ing style.

Of course, Batman is dark and pretty scary. Bruce Wayne plays up his rich, douche bag, playboy persona to portray the part the public expects of him. And while his path starts off as more of a mission of vengeance, he ultimately (thanks to Katie Holmes) accepts that revenge is not a worthy driving force and becomes the true knight his city needs.

Iron Man, on the other hand, explodes on the scene ready for the spotlight and for the world to see, front and center. Tony Stark, unlike Mr. Wayne, left as a douche bag, but comes home ready to right his (or his companies) wrongs. This, of course, does not jibe well with his business partner, the perfectly played (by the Dude himself, Jeff Bridges) Obadiah Stane.  Watching Tony’s personal transformation is pretty f*&#ing cool.

I love watching these two flicks. It’s exciting to watch those fantastically scripted origins, and also seeing who turns out as the real villains. Oh, the betrayal! But like I said at the start, it’s these origins that draw you in, that make these characters feel so real, and make you pull so hard for them when they create their super hero alter egos.

In my new novella, Boom Town, you’ll find a few characters that may pull you in and surprise you as to what common people, those who actually give a shit about their families, their friends, and their towns, can do when faced with extraordinary circumstances. What is that they’re up against? And what price will they pay? I hope you’ll pick up a copy and find out.  And like the rest of the world, I am eagerly anticipating “Avengers 2.” We won’t discuss my early thoughts on “Superman Vs. Batman”…

Thanks for reading along. I invite you to tell me what your favorite hero-type movies are and what you think about Boom Town, too.


Boom Town

Print Length: 81 pages

Samhain Publishing, Ltd. (April 7, 2015)

Terror from below!

In the summer of 1979, Eckert, Wisconsin, was the sight of the most unique UFO encounter in history. A young couple observed a saucer-like aircraft hovering over Hollers Hill. A blue beam blasted down from the center of the craft into the hill and caused the ground to rumble for miles.

Now, thirty years later, Eckert is experiencing nightly rumbles that stir up wild rumors and garner outside attention. The earthly tremors are being blamed on everything from earthquakes to underground earth dwellers. Two pre-teens discover a pipe out behind Packard’s Flea Market uprooted by the “booms” and come into contact with the powerful ooze bubbling from within. What begins as curiosity will end in an afternoon of unbridled terror for the entire town.

"...Stephen King-lite. (Boom Town) is quick, punchy and goes places you may not see coming before the final page is swiped or turned." - Horror After Dark

"Boom Town is quick and entertaining read that harkens back to the 1980's brand of small town (or intimate invasion) alien pieces. Like a reader’s digest version of Late Night Horror Television presentations (every region had one, for me it was "Fright Night Theatre") of "Invaders From Mars", "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", "Night of the Creeps" or "Xtro"” – Zachary, Mouths of Madness Podcast

“Rolfe weaves a wonderful tale of big, bad things happening to a small, good town. A sure winner!” – Hunter Shea, author of Island of the Forbidden and The Montauk Monster

A Chat with Hunter Shea

The prolific and extremely talented Hunter Shea has stopped by my blog to talk about his newest book and a number of other things, some of which may surprise you!

Can you talk a little about Island of the Forbidden? Is the island or house on the island based on a story or legend you've about?

The house, and the island, are completely fabricated. However, the idea to make a haunted house – on a haunted island – came from sitting on beaches in the Bronx, of all places, and seeing these little islands with dilapidated structures. These houses were once residential areas, some housed hospitals, asylums and even a potter’s field. Very intriguing and creepy stuff. If I ever decide to become an Urban Explorer, I’ve vowed to explore those islands. I named the island, and colonial mansion, Ormsby after Alan Ormsby, who was the main character in the early 70s zombie movie, Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things. In that movie, an acting troupe visits a fog shrouded island to raise the dead, with regrettable consequences. The concept of being stranded on an island, without communication, surrounded by something paranormal and potentially evil was what drove me to write Island of the Forbidden. It’s all about isolation in the face of your deepest fears.

A lot of your books deal with the paranormal—Forest of Shadows, Sinister Entity, The Waiting, Island of the Forbidden. When did the subject first interest you and when did you think “Hey, I’m going to write a novel dealing with it?

I have always been a fan of the strange and paranormal. As a kid, I was raised on scary movies, comic books and tales from my grandmother who was a local psychic who made tables rise from the floor and spoke with the dead. Thanks to In Search Of, I was hooked on true stories of ghosts and monsters at a very young age. When my wife and I were married in the early 90’s, we moved into our current house. It didn’t take long to realize we were not alone in the house. For twenty years, we’ve had an extra member of the family who comes and goes as he pleases. When I sat down to write my first full length horror novel, I knew I had to incorporate all of the things that had thrilled and frightened me, as well as the strange situation I was currently living in.

Some authors stick to writing the same kind of book, like gore-filled or action-packed or sci fi oriented horror or atmospheric, etc. It seems you like to write in different areas of horror—sci fi based horror, atmospheric, gory and action-packed. Is there one area you enjoy writing about the most or is tackling the gamut more to your liking?   

I haven’t even gotten started with all of the different story types I want to explore. One of the wonderful things about Samhain is that our editor, Don D’Auria, lets us explore and experiment – as long as the story is solid and the scares are real. Right now, I’m flexing my cryptid muscles. Those books (Swamp Monster Massacre, The Montauk Massacre and the upcoming Dover Demon) tend to mix monster horror with lots of action. I seem to be in my element when I combine the two. But after writing a book like that, I like to try my hand at something else, kind of like cleansing the palate. I’ve noticed that you’re writing style is very similar. I love the range of stories that your books uncover. It’s a blessing to have editors who are there to support your wild imagination.

Let’s change it up a little. What do you like to do when you aren’t writing?

I read – a lot! I’ve always been a big reader, and even more so now. You’d think with having to find time to write, along with a crazy day job, there would be less time to read. But I realized long ago, if you just turn the TV off, you have plenty of time to do everything. I spend a lot of time with my family. My girls are teens now, so they dig a lot of the crazy stuff I dig. And there’s learning to drive, going to concerts, finding every hibachi joint in the state of New York. I’m never at a loss for things to do. I’ll rest plenty when I’m in a nursing home.

Okay, back to the craft. Do you have a writing routine and if so what’s it like?

When I’m working on a book, I try to write every day, even if it’s a stolen moment at lunch or in my car. As long as the words keep coming, I’m happy. On weekdays, I write at night, after work and dinner and shooting the breeze with my family. On weekends, I get up early and do a few hours. When I finish a book, I step away from it for a week, then dive into editing. The key is to keep moving, like a literary shark, and to always finish what you started. You have to learn to step away from a manuscript and declare it done, then send it off to your editor.

Besides writing horror, is there another genre you’d like to write about, or have you?  

The very first book I wrote was a romantic comedy, followed by a very dark comedy. So yes, I definitely have a tendency towards humor. I plan to try my hand at another comedy very soon. I’m also going to try my hand at literary fiction and see how that goes.


Will the New York Mets make the playoffs this year? (Be honest)
Oh man, you had to ask that. The Nationals just made themselves a monster with their winter acquisitions. I think if everything goes right, the Mets could make the wild card. But odds are, this will be a great year to watch with marked improvement but no October ball. If they get another big bat after the 2015 season, and all of those young arms stay healthy, they will win it all in 2016.

Until then, I’m a lifelong Seahawks fan, so I’m thoroughly enjoying their run to the Super Bowl. I hope they kick the Pats in their deflated balls.

Writing influences?

It goes without saying, Stephen King. He was the man who taught me to love grown up horror. Hemingway taught me to keep it short and tight. Elmore Leonard gave me dialogue without being surrounded by extraneous nonsense. Every book I’ve ever read has influenced me in some way – showing me what to do and what not to do.

Name your 3 favorite horror movies.

The Haunting
Dawn of the Dead

What’s the hardest part about writing?

The writing itself, even the editing, is wonderful. I love the process of spinning a big old yarn and working on it until it’s fit for human consumption. It’s all the other stuff around it that can get a little nutty. Authors have to handle the majority of marketing their work. If you’re not careful, you can get sucked into the big black hole of marketing, chomping away at time better spent writing. If you want your books to be front and center, you have a hell of a lot of work to do. I thank God every day for my publicist Erin at Hook of a Book Media. Her incredible efforts allow me the time to work on that next book.

The easiest part?

The first draft. Sure, there are moments where you stop and say, “This is crap. What the heck have I done???” The working writer knows how to push through that. There are so many endorphin rushes when you work on the first draft. I love it.

Can you talk a little about your upcoming release Tortures of the Damned?  (It looks awesome!)

Tortures is a post apocalyptic novel set in Yonkers, NY. I take a nice, innocent family, and drag them into the end of the world, exploring how normal people evolve in an abnormal world. The theme of that book is knowledge. When the bombs hit, all communication is lost. No one knows what happened, who did it, why, or how encompassing the devastation is. In a world where we’re all plugged in and connected 24/7, what do we do when that plug is pulled?

And of course, I add some of my signature mayhem to the mix. If the world goes to hell the way I wrote it, please let me be at ground zero.

Any advice for aspiring or new writers? 

Three simple things : read until your eyes are sore, write until your fingers are cramped, and type The End.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Thank you so much for letting me hijack your blog. I’m a huge fan of your work and lucky to call you Samhain brother.

The phantoms of over one hundred children cannot rest.

But something far more insidious is living on the island. When the living and the dead guard their true intentions, how can Jessica discover just what sort of evil lurks on Ormsby Island? And why is Jessica the only one who can plumb its dark depths?
