It’s always nice to get a little recognition. Whether you’re a writer or an artist, it helps to get your work out there to people who might not have otherwise been aware of what you were doing. Today, I turn the DVD off and give my writer’s mind a rest so I can give a shout out to some friends of mine.
Author and Podcaster Desmond Reddick
Desmond is the main man behind the Dread Media podcast, going strong with more than 450 episodes so far. But did you know he’s also a writer? He’s had short stories published in such books as Dark: A Horror Anthology (2010) and A Mythos Grimmly (2015). But his latest work is a full-length novel entitled Mother of Abominations: A Monster Earth Novel. It’s currently available for Amazon Kindle with a print version coming soon. It’s set in a world where giant monsters are real and features someone by the name of Aleister Crowley. Check out his new website to find out more about what Derrick is doing outside the podcast community.
Artist Steve Lightle
Steve Lightle is an amazing artist who started his career in 1984 and has worked for both Marvel and Dc Comics. While most of his career has been spent as a cover artist, he did interior work on both Legion of Super-Heroes and Doom Patrol in the 1980s. After an absence from the world of comics, he returned with his own original title, Justin Zane. If you know his work, then you know it’s worth supporting. If you’re new to it, check out his website and become a patron today! You might just also learn a little about Whizzo the Clown. I am way late to the party as I just met Steve at Freestate Comicon 2015. However, I was instantly impressed and you will be too!
Author Stephen D. Sullivan
I met this man through the wonderful podcast community. We share a love for all things monster and it’s that passion that Stephen brings to his many written works. He’s been working professionally since 1980 as a fantasy author, artist and editor. He was also a TSR editor during the early days of Dungeons and Dragons. Nowadays, he’s the author of such recent books as Daikaiju Attack, White Zombie and Manos: The Hands Fate. Actually, he’s tackling two versions of Manos, so some might say he’s unleashing Hell on Earth! You’re also likely to hear his voice on such podcasts as the B-Movie Cast and Monster Kid Radio. Check out his website and Patreon page to let him know we’re out here!
