VHS box covers we’ll never forget: ‘Hack-O-Lantern’

What’s happening, ya crazies! We’re trying out something new here: a recurring little feature to spotlight some of our favorite (and often little-known) VHS box covers from back in the day. For me, the ones I remember being especially enticing were often among the most lurid. Of course, Hack-O-Lantern promises plenty of gore with its cover

 Ever been in a writing group, and you’ve got that one person who consistently puts out straight boo-boo writing, but is convinced everything they do is perfect, and won’t listen to a single reasonable note? That can be maddening for others in the writing group who genuinely want to get honest feedback and improve their craft. But

Howdy, ya loonies! It’s been a long minute since we’ve posted up, and that ain’t because we’ve just been playing tiddlywinks. Eijo and I have been busy making all kinds of progress on our novel, as well as hustlin’ on a few fun side projects.
