About Us


Staci Layne Wilson - Webmaster

I'm the director of genre features:
Cabaret of the Dead / The Second Age of Aquarius / Dead Slate

And the author of horror books:
The Tragedy Man / City of Devils / Dark Duet

I'm known for my work in the genre, having been the producer and host of the talk shows Inside Horror, Dread Central Live, and This Week In Horror.  I have written for Fangoria, Horror.com, and The SyFy Channel. I have appeared on Bravo, Reelz, AMC, M-TV and CNN as an expert in horror.

A Note About the Site:
There are many wonderful women working in horror photography, art and design, special effects makeup, as webmasters, and more - but I've chosen to keep this site manageable and therefore am limiting the spotlight to the core storytellers.
