How Far to Englishman’s Bay
Max had made the decision that April morning to close up the bookshop and go away for once and for all, but he hadn’t told anyone yet, and he needed somebody to take the cat, so it was a good thing Jeffrey showed up an hour before closing.
“I think Carmilla wants to go home with you,” Max said, watching Jeffrey roam, as always, through the military books. Jeffrey didn’t reply. He took a tattered Shooter’s Bible off the top shelf and held it up.
“Do you really think this is worth ten bucks? »

And Yet, Her Eyes
Sasha came back from Kandahar in pieces, a sack of broken glass in the shape of a woman. She knew her edges stuck out at hard, invisible angles, waiting for an unwary hand to snag and recoil, so she kept her eyes closed through the flight to Chicago, immersed in civilian travel-murmur but not part of it; when the flight attendant offered to help her with her bags after landing, she said no thank you. She read his nod as relieved, the quick turn from her on his heel more so—thought about making a remark, I don’t bite and it isn’t contagious, »

FEARnet is proud to reprint this rare interview – originally printed in the 2013 World Horror Convention Souvenir Program Book (which was limited to only a few hundred copies) – with kind permission from Paul Goat Allen.

Everybody Knows: Tillman’s Latest a Melodramatic Exercise of Youth in the Projects
Director George Tillman Jr. takes a step away from mainstream fodder for an examination of urban miserabalism with The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. Due to a charismatic performance from his lead child star, Tillman’s latest manages to clear a majority of the significant hurdles in the way of making the film a dramatic success, even as it recalls several other notable lost children titles, anywhere from a handful of Spike Lee titles to Hirokazu Koreeda’s Nobody Knows (2004). Despite its well meaning intentions, some significant issues with the film cannot be overlooked, namely first time film feature scribe Michael Starrbury’s script, which throws so many maudlin scenarios at us that Precious (2009) starts to look like a glowing example of agency.
