Triumph for my own countryman abounds in Too Much Horror Fiction, which Books of the Dead called "the best horror fiction blog on the net." This awesome Canadian blog will show you things like French-language covers of Stephen King novels, and help you find that cheesy-but-impossible-to-forget cover art from your 1987 paperback edition of "Witch Child."
Speaking of cover art, I have to take a moment to recommend Scarlett Rugers Book Cover Design. If you're an indie writer, you'll have heard this advice before but let me add my voice here: do not skimp on paying a pro designer. Scarlett's redesign made my book look 100% more awesome:

Finally, a few suggestions for Friday night amusement. The BFI presents tales of Gothic horror and romance, to "electrify you with the pleasures and terrors of the irrational" (which most readers of this blog know I try to do at least on a daily basis) while Armand Rosamilla offers up free scary stories that should hopefully make everyone's Friday night frightening and uncomfortable. Which is something else I enjoy doing.
