The winner of the Goreletter’s “Virtual Halloween Costume Contest” is author JAMES NEWMAN for his creepy family portrait.
I actually adored ALL the entries…so why did James win? Ultimately, it came down to the scenario of the photo. I liked the vampiric relationship implied by the couple, but it was the “eyeball with fangs” child that did it for me… it looks like something out of one of those Robt. Williams art pieces…and how can the kid breath inside that mask? FREAKY!
James wins a limited edition hardcover of my new book, PROVERBS FOR MONSTERS, as soon as I receive one (the trade paperback is now out), along with a DVD of EXQUISITE CORPSE and a collectible surprise.
Since I only got a limited number of entries to this contest, EVERYONE’S A WINNER and I will be offering a free horror chapbook/magazine from the Arnzen coffers to all entrants.
What?! You missed your chance? Well, subscribe to the e-mail edition of The Goreletter and you won’t miss out on things like this in the future!
Congratulations James. I hope your blood thirst has been quenched until next year. — Mike Arnzen
