Day 28 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – James M. Gabagat

About James M. Gabagat

James M. Gabagat was born and raised in the California Bay Area. He has studied art, music industry, and psychology, but grew bored of all that, finally chose to stop lying to himself, and decided to pursue writing. After working several jobs to scrape up money for a cheap laptop, he began contributing short horror stories to a few, now defunct, online magazines. It paid nearly nothing, but it was the start of his writing career. James enjoys long walks, reading, thinking quietly for long periods of time, and watching anime and awful, low-budget horror movies.

Synopsis for Pulp Dummy Dreadful

Seven tales of dread, of wicked individuals, sinister entities, and strange happenings.
Tales unsuitable for children, the fainthearted, and oversensitive, emotional types.
Tales to make you scared and depressed.

“THE MAGIC OF MR. AND MRS. CRUFF” While little Lucy’s mommy and daddy fight and throw stuff at each other, she hides in her room and talks to friendly shadow people, who give her all the junk food she wants.

“DUWENDE” In exchange for booze and smokes, the mystical, tiny man grants Santiago a wish. When it comes, Santiago isn’t thrilled. He’s disgusted.

“SOUL BURN” The powerful new drug is only sold to “special individuals” and Dominic is one of them. He soon experiences the mind-blowing trip, but it totally isn’t rad.

“THE ME” Kurt receives terrifying text messages…From himself?

“ASLEEP FOR SERENA” The girl of his dreams. The girl he only knows in his dreams. The girl he truly loves. Rob will finally meet her.

“NO WAY, MAN” Janet’s daughter is distressed and won’t stop crying. “No way, man,” the three-year-old keeps saying, “no way, man.” What does it mean?

“THE GUMMY WORM GIRL” She’s a horridly deformed enigma and she loves gummy worms. She’s about to change a candy store employee’s life.

Pulp Dummy Dreadful.
Some bastards won’t go to hell soon enough.

My Review for Pulp Dummy Dreadful

I have to say, I am really loving the short stories. I have never really enjoyed them until this year, obviously from my posts. I have to say, they were all amazing! My favorite one is “The Gummy Worm Girl”, sad ending, but it goes to show you that no matter how someone looks, you must always be friendly. Which one is your favorite?

Day 25 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – Howard Carlyle

About Howard Carlyle

I live in the historical city of York in the UK with my wife and my son. I have been writing for over 25 years. My first steps into the world of writing began with writing normal poetry, as my Dad calls it. Then I tried my hand at writing dark/horror/gory poetry. I’d read some other dark/horror poetry by some other poets and was blown away by how good it was. I posted one of my horror poems on some Facebook poetry groups to see what sort of reaction it would get and I was surprised by the positive reaction it recieved. I decided to give story writing a go and the rest is history. My stories have appeared in numerous horror anthologies. The three ebooks, Sick Twisted F*cks, APOCALYP-SICK & Death, Infection, The Devil and Jed, are available on Amazon are a collection of some my stories that appear in them. You can find these in the BOOKS section of my this page.
The Meyerstown Secret, in all, took me three years to write and is also my first real physical book (its also available as an ebook).
I have two more stories which will hopefully be getting released some time this year, one of which I have just finished writing.

Synopsis for Sick Twisted F*cks

The title of this eBook says it all. It contains two short, twisted tales. The first story, Love Sick in The Head, is about Timothy Bridle who falls in love with his girlfriend’s dying mother… That’s when things get really sick and twisted. A sickening love story.
The second story, Feeling The Fear, follows one man’s curiosity to discover if he can feel and experience someone’s fear. Things don’t turn out too well for him or his poor subject. 

My Review for Sick Twisted F*cks

Gross! But, should I be concerned that I enjoyed the 5 minute reads? Just when I thought the first story was horrific, the second one topped it. These stories are truly disgusting, but entertaining. If you have a sick and twisted imagination, these little gems are perfect!
