I regularly write articles about fiction in a range of different media and genres; my speciality topics being horror, fantasy, science fiction, comics, animation and LGBT-related topics. My writing has been published by Women Write About Comics, Ms En Scene, Bookmarked, Amazing Stories and Belladonna Magazine. With the exception of Belladonna, none of these are paying jobs, hence why Patreon donations would come in useful.

Some of my current projects...

Amazing Histories: An issue-by-issue retrospective of Amazing Stories, the first dedicated science fiction magazine, from April 1926 onwards.

Women in British Animation: A series of articles celebrating women animators in the United Kingdom, with a general emphasis on the boom in feminist animation that existed from around the late seventies to the mid-nineties.

Monster Hunters, Dinosaur Lovers: A book examining the fiction caught up in the dispute surrounding the Hugo Awards and the Sad Puppies campaign, with an eye on how speculative fiction and online culture wars reflect one another.


My past articles include, but are not limited to...

Jack Ketchum on Film:
A six-part series examining film adaptations of Jack Ketchum's novels and short stories. Total wordcount: 8,000.

Racism and the Far-Right in British Horror: A three-part article on racial stereotypes and portrayals of far-right politics in British horror fiction from authors on different parts of the political spectrum. Total wordcount: 9,500.

The Life and Times of Countess Zaleska, Dracula's Daughter: A three-part series discussing the title character of the 1936 film Dracula's Daughter, ranging from her official inspiration in a Bram Stoker short story to her more recent appearances on screen and in print. Total wordcount: 8,000.

Hugo Award reviews: I regularly review the novels and short fiction contending for the Hugo Awards. I've written a 15,500-word series on the 2017 finalists, n 11,000-word overview of the 2016 contenders, and a seven-part series comparing the 2014 and 2015 finalists in the light of the Sad Puppies controversy. This is the rough basis for Monster Hunters, Dinosaur Lovers, although the book will go into more depth.

Articles about horror: As well as the above series, I've written a number of shorter pieces about the horror genre. These include Varney the Vampire, a Penny Dreadful Pioneer, looking at the Victorian penny dreadful Varney the Vampire and its place in the vampire genre; Giving Cthulhu 40 Whacks, an analysis of Cherie Priest's Borden Dispatches novels; Alison Littlewood: Folk Horror and Fairy Lore, examining how The Hidden People and Alison Littlewood's other folk horror stories draw upon fairy beliefs; Before Lugosi: Vampires of the Silent Screen, where I talk about how early film vampires differ from later, more stereotyped interpretations; A. Merritt on Screen, about the film adaptations of Abraham Merritt's novels Seven Footprints to Satan and Burn, Witch, Burn!; and Horror for the Net: The Evolution of Creepypasta, where I argue that online creepypasta stories are digital heirs to spooky campfire tales.

Money from this Patreon would be a tremendous help. Increased financial security, plus the means to purchase more weird and wonderful books and DVDs to discuss, will make it that much easier for me to write these articles.

Anyone who gives me $10 on a monthly basis deserves something nice in return. How about a piece of commissioned artwork?

If $10 a month gets you a piccy, then $20 a month should get you... two piccies? Or a piccy with twice as much going on? We'll talk about it ;)
Goals
$0 of $60 per month
I hope to someday launch a sister series to my Amazing Stories articles, examining the horror/fantasy magazine Weird Tales. This amount of money would cover necessary research materials on a month-to-month basis.
