Ah...I have to add another wonderful source of inspiration. Do any of you collect and/or read/devour the old pre-code horror comics, such as Tales from the Crypt, Haunt of Fear, ShockSuspense Stories, etc? I love these things...and talk about your dark stories and horror and bizarre....wow! These are the goodies that inspired Stephen King and a host of other horror writers and filmmakers. I'm talking mostly about the EC comics, the ones William Gaines created before MAD Magazine (another inspiration which, btw, I was a writer for: I don't like to brag much, but I am very proud of that achievement!).

I love the old EC stuff. Hey Prof., if you have any still, you're probably sitting on a small fortune: http://www.superworldcomics.com/frameSet.php

Ah, Harlan Ellison! The adaptation of "Shatterday" made the 80's revival of Twilight Zone something quite memorable -- that, plus an astounding dramatic turn by Bruce Willis.

"October Country?" Thinking of it still sends me into chills beyond the reach of any warmth, tho' I've not read it since the 6th grade. The "bone doctor" with the very unusual therapy...the casket that automates the process of burial...

"By the pricking of my thumbs..." has there been a better turn at casting than that of Jonathan Pryce as Mr. Dark, in the otherwise hideous movie adaptation of "Something Wicked This Way Comes"?

Do you know, Magi, there's a library nearby which hosts Ray Bradbury in the late summer? He's also known to haunt the Mt. San Antonio College's Writers' Workshop, as well as the L.A. Times' "Festival of Books." Just another perk of living in SoCal.
