Howdy friends! This column is running a bit on the late side this week due to events beyond my control. No dog ate my homework and I didn’t miss the school bus, but the shit certainly did hit the fan.         Man oh man! Long story short- the timing chain in my truck’s engine decided that 195 thousand miles was enough and let go, immediately turning my cool set of wheels into a large amount of recyclable parts. Really put a kink in the Sunday night run to Denny’s for pancakes! I’m still sans vehicle, but hopefully by the time you read this I will be driving something. Now that was bad, but the winner of that contest was the elderly furnace in my home, which decided to show its solidarity with the truck and crap out on Wednesday afternoon. Hats off to all the fine folks at Arctic Bear for zooming to the rescue and saving us from a potentially deadly situation. By 3 p.m. on Friday a brand new furnace was warming the Skull Cave nicely and we were grateful indeed! Although, I’m not so sure the cats liked giving up their electric blanket and space heater…

Obviously, all this craziness shot my entire week right out the window and now it is March. Some folks might say that means we’re done with Women In Horror Month, but I like the words of Shane Douglas Keene @inkheist. Who Tweeted: “It’s March 1st, first day of Women In Horror Year!” Hell yeah, we at Gallows Hill Magazine are totally onboard with that! Although we will be cleverly disguising it as a mixture of reviews by both male and female authors because we want to offer balanced coverage of the speculative fiction and dark poetry world. But in this writing, I’m going to give you a peek at which Women In Horror we’ll be celebrating next.

In the very near future, I’ll have a review of Twin Lakes: Autumn Fires written by the Sisters of Slaughter, Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason. I’m about halfway through this amazing novel from Sinister Grin Press and already know that most of our readers are really going to dig it! How is it that such a beautiful location can be the site of such evil? The pages literally crackle with energy! Can’t for me? No worries! Zip on over to @SinisterGrin Pre on Twitter and make sure to visit the sisters @fiendbooks!

As previously promised, Theresa Braun’s Fountain Dead from Unnerving will be up next with a demon named Roach hot on her heels! He’s the fiery foundation of Mary M. Schmidt’s novel Our Frail Disordered Lives which is available from Lulu Press, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.com. Just look for the book with big, scary eye on the front cover to know you’ve found it! Roach has the boss from Hell. No, really! Roach has the unenviable job of working for the Devil in the business of soul collection. When he decides to go rogue, all bets are off as to what will happen next! This looks like it’s going to be a real barn burner of a read! Want to learn more right now? Then check out http://roachthedemon.wordpress.com  and www.lulu.com Sorry that this installment is a little shorter than the rest, but this hat wearing hothead is out of time! Be sure to keep your eyes out for the new issue of Gallows Hill Magazine, which should be coming out on March 30th. Maybe March will go out like a lamb, but we’ll make sure you keep shivering! Thanks for reading everyone. See you soon!
