Review: Sublime Horror Dissects THE SKELETON MELODIES

A new review of The Skeleton Melodies is up at the always impressive Sublime Horror. “The Skeleton Melodies by Clint Smith review – a study in the uncanny and an experiment in half-forgotten memories” by  Brontë Crawford. “This is a book that’s at once comfortably strange and unnervingly familiar, a study in the uncanny and an experiment in half-forgotten memories where even nostalgia can be a catalyst for fear.”

A Phantom Reappears In Forthcoming SOMETHING GOOD TO EAT Halloween Anthology

One of the first fiction pieces I wrote, and which I felt possessed some semblance of value, was a story titled “Dirt On Vicky.”  It won the 2011 Scare The Dickens Out Of Us ghost story contest, and was later printed in both Ghouljaw and Best New Horror #26.

This humble tale will be reprinted in the forthcoming Halloween anthology, Something Good To Eat (Demon’s Dreaming Press), with cover art from Morbid Comics illustrator Trevor Markwart.
