13 Days of Halloween – Day One

Hello Ghouls and Boils,

Longtime fans know about our 13 Days of Halloween Celebration (or 13 DoH for short). But for you new fans let me give you the gorey details. Each day we will be presenting a trivia question to challenge your brains… mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, brains. We have lots of spooktacular sponsors (check them out on the left sidebar) who bring the truly strange and scary all year long.

Every day there will be a new trivia question related to Halloween and all things spooky. If you think you know the answer,  email your response by midnight (Pacific) of that day to qualify. Click on the link to send in your question (if you use yahoo or google or hotmail – just email me directly at sarah@sheneverslept.com but be sure to put 13 DoH and what day as the subject line like this: 13 DoH Day One). The answer will be posted the next day. Each correct answer will be eligible for that day’s drawing.  We will post a list of the winners after the 13 DoH is over. (They will be mailed some time in November.)

We will also be having our costume contest again this year. The Minions and I will be choosing the top three. And you, my devilish fiends, will pick the big winner! (Everyone in the top three will receive a prize and the number one winner will receive a goodie bag filled with prizes!) So have fun and be creative. Photos of your costume must be turned in no later than November 7th… and don’t worry I will remind you.

We will be posting new reviews, articles, and of course our annual interview (tradition and all) with Trent Zelazny! So stay tuned…

That brings us back to day one of our 13 DoH — are you frightened? You should be. *cackle* Today’s winner will receive  Casino R’lyeh playing cards from Dagon Industries!

Hellbender Media Publishes Through the Night

Hellbender Media Publishes Through the Night

Greetings to ill and sun-dried,

Today, I present a press release from Hellbender Media about their second book, Edward Martin III’s Through the Night.

Signed in human blood,
Sean Levin


Hellbender Media Publishes New Novel

Through the Night Just Published

For Immediate Release – September 8, 2014

HELLBENDER MEDIA PUBLISHES THROUGH THE NIGHT

Hellbender Media announces today the publication of Through the Night.

Through the Night is the second book published by Hellbender Media, and is a horror/action novel following a group of strangers, each with their own secrets, as they fight to survive a night of terror and betrayal.

Hellbender Media’s first book, Close Your Eyes, collected 55 new stories under one cover.

Through the Night was written by local filmmaker Edward Martin III. “With Through the Night, I wanted to try and not only offer a more intimate take on the events of the story, but to make sure that the novel was its own unique experience, with branchings and happenings that never show up in the movie,” said Edward. “But Through the Night is more than just a book. It’s my way of bringing back something that I loved when I grew up reading adventure. I loved fast-paced novels that you could read in a day, that you could lose yourself in, get swept up in the story, flip the pages as fast as you could read, and then you were done with it. Usually, moving on to the next book in the series. So, that’s what I wanted to write. A book like that. A fast book. A page-turner. A book that didn’t need a concordance, a map, and four books ahead of it to get what was happening. Also, I wanted to write a book where everybody was basically some kind of bastard, and yet everybody was sympathetic at the same time. That made it even more fun.”

Portland author J.C. Andrijeski (Allie’s War and Alien Apocalypse) writes Through the Night goes at a breakneck pace. It doesn’t waste a word.

Popular horror author Jonathan Moon (Heinous and Hollow Mountain Dead) writes “Edward Martin III takes the concept Of Wolf and Man to new levels of cosmic originality in Through the Night…Equal parts horror, action and pure fun.”
