Howling Through the Keyhole (Story Notes)
This is the first time Wood, publisher and editor of Shock Totem, formatted an e-book. He is currently working on other formats so it can be uploaded to B&N and Drive-Thru Fiction.
Longo received the award for “Excellence in the Art of Cover Letterage and Animal Mutilation. You will have to ask her at one of her appearances about the cover letter story. The “animal mutilation” part of the award you can find out about by reading her story in Shroud magazine, issue #11.
