BooksMike and Mark write books, both individually and as a team.
Mike has written MODERN MYTHMAKERS, GIANTS OF THE GENRE, MORE GIANTS OF THE GENRE and DARK DUETS (which features a legion of collaborators, since it is a book of Mike's collaborative stories) -- and of course, the forthcoming MONSTER BEHIND THE WHEEL with Mark McLaughlin.
Mike's interviews with horror, fantasy and sci-fi personalities have appeared in a variety of major magazines and websites.
Mark's most recent book releases include MOTIVATIONAL SHRIEKER, SLIME AFTER SLIME (the limited-edition hardcover), AT THE FOOTHILLS OF FRENZY (with Shane Ryan Staley and Brian Knight) and the forthcoming MONSTER BEHIND THE WHEEL with Mike McCarty. SLIME AFTER SLIME has been released as a paperback -- there's info in the big blurb section about that.
Mark has also written a big book of poetry which won a Bram Stoker Award, THE GOSSAMER EYE (with Rain Graves and David Niall Wilson -- each of the three poets has one-third of the book), and a lot of slender volumes of poetry, including YOUR HANDY OFFICE GUIDE TO CORPORATE MONSTERS ... MEN ARE FROM HELL, WOMEN ARE FROM THE GALAXY OF DEATH ... PROFESSOR LaGUNGO'S EXOTIC ARTIFACTS & ASSORTED MYSTIC COLLECTIBLES ... PHANTASMAPEDIA ... and THE SPIDERWEB TREE.

Here's a look into the novel's plot: As a child, young Texan Jeremy Carmichael fell from a Ferris wheel at a carnival. He landed on a beautiful young woman and his fall was broken. Unfortunately, so was the woman's spine.
Years later, Jeremy is injured in a car accident while delivering pizzas. The accident opens the gates between the worlds of the living and the dead, awakening a malevolent supernatural presence - the spirit of a cruel man named Frank Edmondson. Frank had been the policeman who'd arrived at the scene of the carnival accident, years earlier. The woman who'd died had been Frank's lover.
Frank wants revenge on Jeremy and wishes to re-enter the world of the living by taking over the young man's body. Jeremy finds himself constantly visiting the realm of the dead in dreams and visions. But is that Frank's doing, or is there another reason...?
Frank has a cunning master plan which involves a sleek, deadly muscle-car called Monster. Frank uses the car to gain more and more of a foothold over Jeremy's life. But what Frank doesn't know is that Jeremy isn't your average pizza delivery boy....
What happens next? You'll have to read the book to find out more!
