HorrorFest in Park Ridge!

That’s right! Just in time for Halloween, I will be joined by such great Chicagoland horror authors as Chris Larsen, John Everson, Brian Pinkerton, and Richard Thomas for HorrorFest in Park Ridge. Come on out Sunday, October 26, 2014 from 25 PM at the Iannelli Studios Heritage Center, 255 N. Northwest Highway, Park Ridge, IL 60018. We will be discussing horror and writing, and selling and signing our books. 10% of the sales will go to benefit the Kalo Foundation. EXTRA SPECIAL BONUS: In additon to my having copies of my award-winning ONE MAN’S CASTLE available to sign, Grey Matter Press will be there to have copies of SPLATTERLANDS available as well! Now you can get your hands on copies of what has been called my “uber-classic” modern horror story “A Letter To My Ex” signed just in time for Halloween! Don’t miss out on this great opportunity!! See you there — or BEWARE!!

The Verdict

J. Michael Major’s debut One Man’s Castle is a kaleidoscopic noir that grabs a reader and carries them away in a fever dream of twisted, mordant suspense. Reminiscent of the works of James Cain and Jim Thompson—perhaps if they were under the influence of LSD—this crazy quilt of crime, horror, and psychological weirdness is an incredibly impressive first novel, as well as a crackling great read.”
