About me: As a writer I prefer the mantle of “weird” fiction rather than horror. To me, horror has always been a restriction with certain trappings required of it to qualify as a genre piece. Weird fiction is something I feel gives me freedom of movement, it covers a much wider range of style and material without devoting too much to one above all others.

Influences: H.P. Lovecraft, Kim Newman, William Hope Hodgson, Edogawa Rampo, Ray Bradbury and too many more to count.

This blog was established as a sort of writer’s journal(and not a real journal because I really am that boring) to keep me from getting lazy, and as a place to try out different writing exercises, experimental styles, etc. Please note that any and all entries made by me will be purely fiction unless otherwise stated.  All original fiction is © me, so please notify me if you wish to reprint it elsewhere.

  1. Hi Rachel, I really think you have a great prose style voice. I would be interested in your feedback regarding my fiction. Thanks

  2. Hi Rachel,
    I really enjoy reading your work here.
    I am a photographer who is doing an exercise involving having writers write a story around one of my photos and the opposite; writers sending stories and I develop a photo to correspond. My photos are quite unique and cover a variety of genres, and I am seeking those like minded artists such as yourself to collaborate with. Please view my work at http://www.billdraheim.com and my work with speculative fiction writer William Gosline here: http://wgosline.wordpress.com
    I hope to hear from you.

  3. Very cool. When can we start?

  4. Hi, Just read your Ad hock piece. It was really awesome. I do artwork for books etc. I’m actually working a little with William Gosline if ever you want any cover art or illustration done let me know!
