I, Brian Lillie, am a horror writer, moviemaker, and musician from Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I cohabitate with my awesome wife, swell kids, and two small beasts. Having read tons of horror fiction and watched tons of horror films over the past 15 million years, I tend to get a little carried away with enthusiasm over such things. I am whatever one would call the opposite of a horror apologist, and think more genres would benefit from the inclusion of monsters.
Is it kind of weird to have a writing website when you only have a few published stories? Yes it is, but heck–life is pretty weird most of the time, so… Think of this as optimism run amok, but while you marvel at my lack of publishing credentials, please also check out 31 HATH OCTOBER, my Halloween countdown blog. It has tons of articles, reviews, musings, etc., about the horrifying arts in all their colorful guises–with a bunch of guest bloggers who know what the heck they’re talking about. It also sports some cool interviews with writers and other artists, like Livia Llewellyn, Victor LaValle, Matthew M. Bartlett, and Lynda E. Rucker, for crying out loud! And, you owe it to yourself to read the WHAT ARE THE THREE SCARIEST STORIES/BOOKS THAT YOU CAN THINK OF? post, with picks and commentary from 15 of the best writers currently working in the field…
ALSO, while you are making fun of how few of my stories have actually seen the light of day (you fiend!), you might enjoy checking out one of my musical projects like LOBSTA THERMIDOR (warning, this is not for people allergic to weird smart aleckness):
And, heckfire! If you’re still poking around, why not watch one of the short horror or comedy movies I’ve made with my posse of talented collaborators. An example being:
So, yes, this is all small potatoes. But how am I going to find you people if I don’t lay some kind of trap?!
