Next month, I’ll be in Las Vegas for the inaugural STOKERCON. While there I’ll be co-judging the LUCKY 13 HORROR SHORT FILM COMPETITION (last day to enter is today!) and taking pitches for RUE MORGUE magazine.

Read on for what I’ll be looking for at the pitch sessions (and see you in Vegas!)…

I will be accepting feature article/cover story pitches for RUE MORGUE magazine at StokerCon2016. However, writers interested in being location correspondents and reviewers are also welcome. RUE MORGUE is a print publication with a two-month lead time; we prefer to time coverage to month of release, so please keep that in mind when preparing your pitches. Pitches should detailed but succinct. They should include a rundown of what you’d like to cover (be it a film, book, video game, artist, cultural event/movement, etc.), who you would be interviewing for the piece (and whether you can attain the interview yourself or require our assistance), how long in word/page count you envision it, and whether it would have any sidebar articles or reviews to go with it. Lastly, RUE MORGUE is a horror mag, so please don’t pitch fantasy or sci-fi articles unless there is a strong horror element. Also, we don’t publish fiction, so none of that either, please.

The latest issue of Rue Morgue (#119, Jan/Feb 2012) hit newsstands this week, and features my cover story on the upcoming feature film The Woman in Black. I had the opportunity to interview director James Watkins, screenwriter Jane Goldman (Stardust, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) and Daniel Radcliffe (yes, Mr. Harry Potter himself) for the piece. The mag can also be obtained digitally from and for iPhones/iPads via the Apple App store.

Also in this issue, my Library of the Damned column where I discuss the upcoming House of Night comic books with P.C. Cast, author of the best-selling YA vampire series of the same name, and a whole bunch of other incredibly cool stuff, including our annual best and worst of the year round-up and an exhaustive list of horror cons and film fests. Essentially, everything you need to plan your next twelve months in horror.
