Hip To Be Scared [Excerpt]

Darren Gordon Smith & Staci Layne Wilson

Maddie interrupted the discussion about Phil’s record collection. “Hey, who’s the band? That lead singer is hot.”

Phil gave a big grin. “That’s my newest discovery. Richard and the Ramirez’s. They’ve got a deadly sound, don’t they?”

Maddie, who liked nothing better than to Netflix-and-chill with days-long true crime documentary binges, gulped. “Oh, my God." She took stock of her surroundings. "Are we in The Cecil Hotel?”

“Yes, ma’am,” Phil confirmed. “It’s a historical landmark.”

Maddie instantly remembered where she’d heard of The Cecil before. She’d watched American Horror Story: Hotel twice, not to mention the many documentaries on the disappearance and mysterious demise of Elisa Lam.

“Whoa, this is surreal.” She ordered another Blue Lagoon. She savored the frosty mix of Curacao, lemonade, and cheap vodka as she watched Richard perform. The band sucked, but he wasn’t half-bad. She tapped Phil on the shoulder, then pointed to the stage. “Can you introduce me after the show?”

Editorial Reviews


Praise for Rock & Roll Nightmares

"MTV's Headbangers Ball" meets "Tales from the Crypt"; meaning it's perfect entertainment for anyone who's ever played "Stairway to Heaven" backwards to hear the mumbled phrase "Here's to my sweet Satan." —Matthew Chernov,

A groovy five stars! —Candance Nola,
Uncomfortably Dark

Staci Layne Wilson is a savvy curator of selections that prove both smart and entertaining. The plays on words may draw you in, but it's the creativity level on display that is certain to make you stay. —Rebecca Rowland,
Ginger Nuts of Horror
