Operation Backlog Completion 2024

For the past three years, we’ve spent October celebrating all things spooky with a look at everything from outright horror to creepy elements in non-horror games.

Now it’s time for the fourth annual Celebrating All Things Spooky, with new spooky posts each Monday in October until we reach Halloween. (Wednesday and Friday will have normal posts for the site.)

Announcing “The Artist”

final-masquerade-coverI’d like to kick things off with a new publication announcement. My short horror story “The Artist” will appear in the upcoming anthology Final Masquerade from Lycan Valley Press.

“The Artist” is about a man investigating the secrets of a mysterious artist… but the truth is more than he bargained for.

Many people helped with “The Artist,” and I’d like to thank all of you. If all goes as planned, Final Masquerade will be available on Halloween!

In the meantime, you can always check out the rest of my horror:

A New Spooky Contest

Join me during Celebrating All Things Spooky for a chance to win two parody RPGs, Breath of Death VII and Cthulhu Saves the World.

This year’s contest isn’t random. Instead, I want you to leave (non-anonymous) comments on my Celebrating All Things Spooky blog posts. Next month, I will pick the person who left the best comments overall and contact them about receiving their prize.


  • No purchase is necessary.
  • Only comments made before November 1, 2016 at 12:00 AM EST will be taken into consideration.
  • Comments made on any Celebrating All Things Spooky post will be taken into consideration, even if the post is from a previous year.
  • Comments will be judged based on relevance and quality.
  • Comments will be judged solely by me.
  • If I judge the contest to be a tie, all winners will still receive the prize.
  • The winner will be announced on November 2, 2016.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Good luck, and Happy October! Let’s celebrate some spookiness as we look ahead to Halloween.
