Holy Cow! I was on The Horror Show with Brian Keene!


It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything on the site (because I basically live on Facebook and ) and I’m truly sorry about that, but here’s a treat from my 4 wonderful days at Necon.

I was fortunate enough to be interviewed last Saturday by horror luminaries Brian Keene and Mary SanGiovanni for The Horror Show podcast and it was truly amazing. They both were so gracious and made me quite comfortable the entire time. 

So, if you have about 45 minutes, listen to me babble about the future of Bloodshot Books, the influence of James Newman, my frequent attacks of imposter syndrome and various other random topics.

Enter The Goat Man!

TAMER -1563x2500At long last—after a couple of minor hiccups—TAMER ANIMALS by Justin M. Woodward, the first novel from last year’s Open Call is available for purchase, so… if you like coming of age tales… if you’re a fan of Richard Laymon… and if you like backwoods horror, this book was tailor made for you. Grab it in KINDLE or PAPERBACK


Down by the old Coheelee Creek Covered Bridge, four high school friends only wanted to kick back, smoke some weed and forget about their problems for a day or two. Sure, there were stories that the area was haunted, but there was no way they were true.


Decades earlier, an old goat farmer had been murdered by the Klan, hung from a tree near the bridge solely because of the color of his skin. His body was never found. Since then, numerous sightings of a strange creature—half-man and half-goat—had been reported in the surrounding woods. He was called the Goatman.


From the moment they arrived, strange noises echoed around them… a sense that they were being watched pervaded the campsite… and that was just the beginning. When one of them vanishes and a horned monstrosity pursues the others, it becomes clear that the legends are real.

…and the truth is so much more horrific than they could ever have imagined.

“Justin M. Woodward isn’t playing around–this is a terrifying descent into depravity.”
-Jeff Strand (Author of Sick House)

“Dark, twisted, and full of surprises.”
-Duncan Ralston (Author of WOOM and Salvage)

“Woodward is the kind of dick who invites himself into your nightmares, and Tamer Animals is the key he uses to open the door.”
-J. Z. Foster (Author of The Wicked Ones and Witch Hunter)

Rise Up and Help Brian Keene

Horror author and philanthropist Brian Keene was burned in a freak accident today.
 He is currently in the hospital for severe 2nd degree burns on his arm and body. He was also burned on his face, but thankfully those were 1st degree.


Since he is a freelance author, he does not have health insurance and, as we all know, medical care in this country is FAR from cheap.
Stephen Kozeniewski has set up a GoFundMe page to help defray some of the costs. If you can help out, please head over there and donate whatever you can. Or you can share the page and spread the word.
Brian has generated tens of thousands of dollars for charity over the past few years (and frankly, I may be underestimating that amount). He’s one of the good guys. Let’s give back to him during this difficult time.
Or, another way people could help him would be to pick up one of his books. They’re pretty damned good. Check his catalog out HERE

What do Still Waters Hide?


If you have an hour to spare today, head over to YouTube and check out STILL WATERS, an excellent indy horror project from Tacky Tie Films, directed by Rick Welch and written by Bloodshot Books’ very own James Newman.
