A couple weeks ago I was watching a horror movie (and may I digress for just a moment to say that horror movies don't really impress me much anymore? One has to be pretty darn good to be 'scary'.) and I thought about some of the lessons or truisms to be learned from these movies.

Until that July night, Richard's toughest job was dealing with his young toddler son and his penchant for always spilling his milk. Then, that one night, he killed a man and everything changed.
Not that he had a choice. Not when his family, Ann and their four year old son Jordan, were at stake. Not when somebody had broken into…Continue

Elmo “Slick” Gurken has a job so private investigator Bubba Mabry had to go over to the Pink Pony Gentlemen's Club. Every city has that kind of joint that is always in the news thanks to zoning battles and crime reports. For Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Pink Pony is that kind of place. Considering the bouncers made him pay the ten dollar cover charge to get in the building the job had better be a good one.
The natural redhead and top performer “Joy Forever” is missing and…Continue

Spare and unsentimental, this series of episodes in the life of a platoon as it advances across war-torn Europe is among the most chillingly realistic in any novel of the Second World War, coming as it does from the…

Liam Mulligan, investigative reporter for The Providence Dispatch newspaper has come a long way since June 1992. Back then he was a young reporter working the sports beat who, by the luck of the draw and the fact that no one else was available, was forced into helping cover from the start one of the worst murder cases in the history of Rhode Island. A case that ultimately resulted in the very justified conviction of a killer who is definitively going to kill again if he ever gets…Continue

After fortifying myself it was time to head for the Green Room in…Continue
