Lee Forman is a writer and editor from the Hudson Valley, NY. His fascination with the macabre began in childhood, watching old movies and reading everything he could get his hands on.

When he’s not crafting horrifying creatures and tales of terror, he spends his time playing guitar and writing music.

JonOlsonJon Olson – Rotting Meat

On top of working full time as a Security Checkpoint Coordinator at the Halifax Robert L. Stanfield International Airport and still learning the ropes of being a father, Jon is also a writer of horror and dark fiction. While he writes predominantly about the dark and horrible, he will step out into other areas if the interest is there. He finds enjoyment in expressing his creativity through fiction, poetry, songwriting, painting and thrashing the crap out of his bass guitar.

Christopher_A_LiccardiChristopher A. Liccardi – Maestro of Depravity

Christopher is a creator of worlds, destroyer of lives and yes, he sleeps well at night…mostly.  He is a fiction writer, poet, and scribe to a beautifully vengeful muse with a taste for horror, fantasy and the erotic. His insatiable imagination has no limit. If you happen to run across Christopher’s path and he seems distracted, it would most likely be prudent to glance over your shoulder – you never know what he may be plotting.

A.F. Stewart – Madame of Mayhem

A steadfast and proud sci-fi and fantasy geek, A. F. Stewart was born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada and still calls it home. The youngest in a family of seven children, she always had an overly creative mind and an active imagination. She favours the dark and deadly when writing—her genres of choice being horror and fantasy—but she has been known to venture into the light on occasion. As an indie author she’s published novels, novellas, and story collections, with a few side trips into poetry.

I am an author of dark literature – horror, paranormal, fantasy and suspense. While my writing is always my own, I don’t always feel like I’m the puppet master of the sinister products of my mind. I work for the FBI, and am on the SWAT team for our division. Check out for stories and writing, or you can go to my blog – Flashbangs and Fiction.

    Came across you lot just as I’ve bought Thomas Brown’s Lynnwood. Very much looking forward to reading it. If you are ever looking for another member, I’ve got some pretty disgraceful stuff hidden away myself. I’ll be watching…


    • Nina D'Arcangela says :

      We’re always on the prowl for talent. If you’d like to be considered if an opening becomes available, shoot a 1000 word or less sample out to Joseph or myself and we’ll happily hang onto it. We hope you enjoy what you find here from The Damned!
