Thumbs up

Needless to say another brilliant accomplishment of HDC. Kudos to V, fortunato, NE & others who gave their time & effort to make it possible. It's a great shame for me that I haven't read much of stories of most of the writers here mentioned & even haven't heard of many of them before. :o But anyway, a huge heads up for amateur readers like me. Thanks a lot, HDC.

I am duly impressed. What a task it must have been to track down photos of all the writers. Some of them, it's my first time seeing them. I willl try and come up with some blurbs in between writing my Lovecraftian horror tale "Under the Shanghai Tunnels." :P

Great job, V.

Do you think King will surpass Lovecraft when his work is done?

A stunning photo gallery, the crown jewels of HDC and worthy of a Stoker Award.

Hi folks,

Just wanted to pop by and thank everyone who voted or worked hard to put this list together. To be chosen as #36 on this list of incredible writers is truly an honor for me. The Leisure Books fiasco of a few years ago kind of knocked me on my ass for a while, took a lot of fun out of things, but I'm back on my feet and writing again. I don't want to spam anyone here but if you have any interest in my books, please come visit me at my new website www.gordrollo.com when you get a chance, or pop over to facebook, twitter or amazon and do a search for me. I've been working with a really great new small press called Enemy One to get all my backlist of books re-released in not only ebook versions but print ones as well. I have about a dozen things for sale over there, including novels, novellas, and short story collections with more books coming soon. And this time, I'm actually getting paid for them! Anyway, thank you again for the honor of being included in your list. It means a lot to me and I really appreciate it. Hope we can chat soon!

If anyone has any questions, I'd be happy to answer anything you might want to know. We can do it here, or feel free to start a new thread so we don't hog this one.
