1: to condemn to a punishment or fate; especially : to condemn to hell
2a: to condemn vigorously and often irascibly for some real or fancied fault or defect
<damned the storm for their delay>
b: to condemn as a failure by public criticism
3: to bring ruin on
4: to swear at : curse—often used to express annoyance, disgust, or surprise
<damn him, he should have been careful> <I’ll be damned>
5: a group of writers sworn to their sufferings

A taste of Hell itself?

Perhaps…but also a clandestine collection of the most eclectic minds of horror.  These anguished souls have stripped free their pretenses for your grotesque delight.  The Pen of the Damned tread where you dare walk not.  Breathe what you dare dream not.  Share what you dare speak not.

You have been warned.

    Joseph, GREAT site! What a good place to rest my dark soul…

    The process of delving into the black abyss is to me the keenest form of fascination.

      Thank you very much! My intent with Pen of the Damned is to provide a haven for only a select few writers; a place to promote & broadcast ourselves not only as individuals but as “the Damned” as well. For the reader, I believe it provides a wonderful sampler of horror, angst & prose each week.


      • zkullis says :

        Yes, it provides a place for readers to go, uninhibited, knowing they will find the caliber of darkness and horror they want, and not have to be worried about finding mediocrity or glittery attempts at fear.
