The staff at Horror-Web is an ever changing pool that seems to grow and shrink on a daily basis. I shall try and keep a handle on the staff changes here and may even create a Horror-Web staff graveyard to remember those who are no longer with us.

E-Mail regarding: Everything
Horror has always been part of my life. I have flitted around the edges of the small press horror community for the last 10 years. At one point I was part of a writers critique group. Much of my time has been spent with the desire to become a writer, yet day to day life has constantly gotten in the way of such aspirations. After my first taste of a World Horror Convention though, I knew there was no looking back for me. Four years ago I quit my day job favoring the creativity and enjoyment of self employment over stability and a paycheck. Wait…Aw crap. Well, money can’t buy happiness anyway. And my newly found self employment has allowed me to become the shirt guy for WHC as well as several other conventions. If I keep that up, I may just have some money to go with my happiness. Taking the helm of Horror-Web seemed like a natural progression for me. A way to increase my knowledge and exposure within the community and I get a whole new place to make shirts and play!
E-Mail regarding: News & Rumors [general], and Serial Killers
“I grew up watching classic monsters and my younger brothers and I spent many hours late Saturday nights being terrorized by Shock theater. What a thrill! Halloween has always been my favorite season of the year, and I prepare weeks before by soaking up as much horror as possible and sharing it with my unwitting friends and family. As a teenager I was reading Stephen King, Anne Rice and H. P. Lovecraft while my friends were riding horses and going to proms. I have been bitten by the evil horror bug and succumbed to its venom. Life is much better on the dark side!”
Flunky has high hopes. Moving her way up the totem pole she hopes to someday rise above mere flunky status. She is going to school to become a film maker. Hoping that someday minion will be showering her with accolades in the movie review section of Horror-Web. Or at least have to sit through her crappy indie film effort. She is often mistaken for the Goddess Kali but oddly enough not because of her name, but because of her extra pair of arms.

Sara J. Larson
Sara grew up in Shelbyville, a small Indiana town where she was never more than fifteen minutes (by bicycle) from the corn fields. At IUPUI, she studied Religion and English, and took far too many psych classes. After a brief attempt at journalism, she realized she had no talent for telling the truth and went back to fiction. She lives in Indianapolis with her husband, two dogs and two cats, and spends her days making jewelry and her nights creating monsters.
Casey J. Covert
