Interview with the Authors:
So what makes Tales from The Lake so special?
Jennifer Loring: Tales from the Lake is one of the few anthology series where you can find a balance of established horror authors alongside new and emerging talent.
J. Daniel Stone: Tales from the Lake is special, I think, first and foremost in that it's an open-themed horror collection. Themes tend to—more than I want to admit, and some might disagree—constrict writers. I don't like that about themes. But with Tales from the Lake we are reading stories by writers who are not given any rules. Just write what one loves and submit. That's wonderful.
Tell us more about your story, and in which volume it appeared?
Jennifer Loring: My story “The Fine Art of Wrecking” was the first place winner of the Tales from the Lake competition. It's based on the traditional legend of wreckers on the East Coast using false lights to run ships ashore to be plundered, but takes a Lovecraftian turn.
J. Daniel Stone: My story “Alternative Muses” was the 2nd place winner in the original short story writing contest. The story focuses on a young couple who live on the fringes of society, but who soon are taken back to reality when they get pregnant. Things take a dark turn, and the need to transcend normality and complacency drive this story to a wicked ending.
Each tale is more extreme and terrifying than the next. Buy Club Blaze, open your mind and allow it to enter this infernal club as you read. Who knows what doors it might open?
Lest they be rattling their crib rails.
These fairy scairies from Blaze's quill
Send up your spine the iciest of chills.
So tuck yourself in but leave on the light…
Get ready for Blaze's tales of fright.
