Greetings and salutations fellow lovers of the dark, weird, and horrific. I am your resident werewolf, Matthew V. Brockmeyer, The Humboldt Lycanthrope.
Some rather big news: I have a novel coming out in August! KIND NEPENTHE: A SAVAGE TALE OF TERROR SET IN THE HEART OF CALIFORNIA'S MARIJUANA COUNTRY. I am going to be giving away lots of free copies, as well as magazines and anthologies featuring my work, so be sure to like my Facebook page for chances to win. You can also follow me on Goodreads and Amazon.
All of my pastas take place in Humboldt County, California. From historical-fiction pieces like The Number of Darkness (PASTA OF THE MONTH SEPTEMBER 2015) which takes place in 1860, to present day stories like Daddy's Little Princess which comes with its own custom website. If I had to choose a top three, I suppose they would be as follows:
The Long List The one that put me on the creepypasta map. PASTA OF THE MONTH JUNE 2015. Written in less than twenty-four hours and a winner in the Creepypasta Freestyle Finals.
Under a Rotting Sky A tragic punk-rock love/ghost story. First place winner in the Empy and Koromo Song Contest with a cash prize of fifty dollars. I can’t tell you how satisfying it was to blow Empy’s hard-earned money on pornography, lottery tickets and malt liquor.
The Gym Teacher Warning, this is a graphic tale which pushes the limits of NSFW. That being said, it has been consistently hailed, by both administrators and members alike, as one of the best stories on the site, and I rigorously stand by its literary value.
I’d like to close by stating what a wonderful site this is for aspiring horror writers. Not only do you get to exercise your craft and get honest critiques and feedback, but you also get to meet all of these amazing people from all over the world, many of whom have gone on to be published authors. This is truly a great community.
