Women of Horror

Laurie Strode and Sidney Prescott evaded  legendary killers.

Morticia Adams, and Lily Munster brought perception and balance to their dysfunctional families.

Ripley faced off against xenomorphs, while the sex-starved soccer mom in the Babadook had to deal with an annoying son that wouldn’t stop pestering.

Horror has a lot of iconic female characters and is the one genre that really gives woman an edge.

Some might complain and say that women are always the victim. To that I say nonsense. It’s horror, sweetheart, there is always going to be a victim and with male and female it’s sort of leaves just two choices, and it’s not always women. Besides horror works by exploiting relationships so someone’s girlfriend, boy toy, baby momma is gonna get the knife.

Horror, compared to other genres, features more female lead roles which means we get to see these ladies face-off against impossible odds to become survival bad asses, and we can always use more of that. 

Now, of course there’s exploitation. It’s horror. It depends on exploitation. Does that mean women are being exploited for their wider range of emotion and used as targets in a gauntlet of terror just to get a response from the audience? Uh, yeah. Just like guys are used for their risk taking behavior and often depicted as arrogant jocks. But let’s explore this.

This Friday (Aug 4th) at 10pm CST, the Deadman’s Tome podcast will explore the Women of Horror.

Hopefully, That Horrible Woman will join us. Who is That Horrible Woman, her voice gives life to scary stories. She reads stories to you, sort of like your mother when you were a kid, but these are probably bot the stories your mom would read.

Microbial Horror and Josh Schlossberg

The U.S. Military has released engineered microbes into the general population. No, this is not a myth, and this is not some Info Wars conspiracy piece. If you live in San Francisco, you could be exposed to foreign bacteria that could have a range of undocumented side-effects.

Joining us is Josh Schlossberg, author featured in Deadman’s Tome Campfire Tales Book Two and host of Josh’s Worst Nightmare,  to talk about microbial horror. Is Microbial horror a cheap cop-out for penny-pinching corner cutting Hollywood producers to exploit or is it a real deal?

Find out Friday night at 10PM CST. Connect with Legato10@swbell.net via Skype to join the conversation!

Why Read When You Can Listen?

Sure, reading can be enjoyable, but when the setting is right. You know, when there are no annoying little distractions coming on you like you’ve volunteered as a target for a bukkake. You want to read, but sometimes life demands your attention elsewhere. Such as watching the kids, doing chores, or using your car as a taxi cab.

Don’t worry, Deadman’s Tome has a solution. Why read when you can listen? 

Patrons of Deadman’s Tome get access to readings of select stories such as The Wicked Congregation by Gary Buller, The Murder of Crows by S. J. Budd, and The Lake Monster by Mr. Deadman

Monsters Exist Out Now!

From the time we are young, we fear the monster under the bed or in the closet, making it impossible to sleep without a nightlight. Then, we hear stories of Bigfoot, and maybe even the Mothman around campfires. When we are adults, we wonder if there might actually be supernatural creatures lurking in the shadows. Are these tall tales and urban legends only metaphors for what horrific things humanity is capable of—or do monsters exist?

Go to some terrifying places with this cast of authors. You will be dragged into mystifying realities where demonic fairies hide, where devil monkeys lure carnival-goers to their demise, where Goatmen seek to destroy their prey, and where the goddess of death puts out a hit on victims of her choice. These shocking tales will have you biting your nails and locating that childhood nightlight. Because, in the end, we all know monsters do exist.

Deadman’s Tome Monsters Exist features the following authors:

Wallace Boothill

Theresa Braun

S.J. Budd

Gary Buller

S.E. Casey

Mr. Deadman

Calvin Demmer

Philip W. Kleaver

Sylvia Mann

William Marchese

John Palisano

Christopher Powers

Leo X. Robertson

M.R. Tapia
