Hi there and welcome, here is a little bit about me. I am a 32 year old IT techy from the south of England. I live with my wife Louise and our cat MelodyI have had a love of ghostly tales and horror ever since I picked up a copy of James Herbert's "The Rats". I quickly devoured all I could of his work then moved on to the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker and Shaun Hutson to name a few.Over the years I have fallen in love with the works of M.R James, Mary Shelly, H.G Wells and all many of Victorian ghost stories. For me you can keep the gore and violence, just give me a strong narrative and let my imagination fill in the blanks, that's how I like my horror. That's why over the years I have collected and scribbled down a whole host of ideas for ghostly tales. I have now edited and released nineteen issues of Sanitarium;Sanitarium - Bringing you the best in horror, one case at a time. Published monthly, Sanitarium showcases stories from both up and coming writers and seasoned pros. Within its pages Sanitarium is filled with stories from the supernatural to the psychological and everything in between. Zombies, witches, vampires, lycanthrope, Lovecraftian and classic ghost stories, it's all here waiting for you. Each issue also brings a mixture of "Group Therapy Sessions" where we cover all things horror, interview leading publishers and published authors and we see "Where the Horror Happens" with fellow writers. We welcome you to the Sanitarium, committed to bringing you the best in horror! The website can be found here www.sanitariummagazine.comEnjoy.
