How COVID-19 Reignited my Love of Comics, a Guest Post by Pete Mesling

Hey friends, Zakk here, good morning (afternoon, evening) to you. I hope this day sees you well. In this day and age of near constant chaos and anxiety, we as humans must find a glimmer of happiness to grasp, put in our breast pocket, close to our heart. To help ward against the evil eye of 2020. It will be the only way not to be consumed by life, which happens to be extra ravenous right now. Please allow me to share this with you, one of our own in the horror community...

“An Apology (of Sorts) from the Doldrums”

A dispatch from the apocalypse from Ronald Malfi 

Ah, good children: We are here, together, in the thick of it, staring at our quaking palms, sweating, casting sideways glances at a darkening sky, suddenly distrustful of the crude proximity of our fellow humans. Are we all going to die? Yes; eventually. Soon? Some of us, yes. You or me in particular? Hell, anything’s possible. But maybe not likely.

Beware These Werewolf Books! By @OneDarkAlly

I didn’t realize that I had developed a reputation. 

In July, the Night Worms team asked me to write a blog post about werewolves. In August, my family gave me werewolf gloves, feet, and a mask for my birthday. Two weeks ago, while driving to Salem, my husband blasted a ten-minute track of nothing but werewolves howling. And just last week, my brother-in-law randomly texted me to ask why werewolves sometimes eat hearts. 

Apparently, I have developed a furry, teeth-gnashing, guttural growling, howl-at-the-moon kind of reputation. And...

IN THE PANIC ROOM

Writing in Times of Crisis

When this pandemic began, all desire to create fled my body with the aplomb of a parachutist ejecting from a burning plane. Instead, I developed an addiction to the news, watching this country’s disastrous response with all the fascination of a spectator on the ground as that plane careened to the earth. As I’m sure I don’t need to tell you (unless you’re one of those batshit conspiracy nuts who thinks wearing...
