FOWC (Friend of WildClaw) Mort Castle, celebrity panelist for DeathScribe 2008, has seen the Polish translation for his 1984 novel "The Strangers" make the list of "10 Best Horror/Suspense/Thriller Novels of 2008" in NEWSWEEK POLSKA.
Or so he tells me. I can't read Polish. Pretty cool though, yes?
Speaking of cool things Mort Castle does, check out Sniplits.com. It's a portal for audio files (and -philes, I suppose) where you can download a great selection short stories -- from two or three minutes to a half an hour or so -- all for under a buck. It's pretty damn groovy.
I'm personally a fan of the two jazz stories there from Mort's Moon on the Water collection, but there's also plenty of good creepy, violent horror. Check out I'll Call You, read by a Chicago actor of some notoriety, Kurt Ehrmann.
