I’ve been a loyal reader of Rue Morgue Magazine since 2005, when an issue with strikingly gore-geous Joe Coleman cover art based on the 1986 film Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer caught my eye at the local bookstore. After returning home with the magazine and reading it cover to cover, I was hooked. To this day, I maintain that Rue Morgue Magazine is home to some of the very best coverage and analysis of the horror genre you’re likely to find.
Believe it or not, I’m not saying all this in the vain hopes that the staff will reward me with a free lifetime subscription (although I certainly wouldn’t mind that). In truth, I’m saying all this to illustrate just how big a moment it was for me to open the January/February 2020 issue of Rue Morgue and see that the editorial staff had named Mannequin: Tales of Wood Made Flesh, an anthology I contributed to, 2019’s “Best Multi-Author Anthology.”
A heartfelt congratulations to editor Justin Burnett and all my fellow contributors who made that book so great. I’m very grateful for being able to ride your coat tails into fortune and fame, my friends!
