    R.I.P. Dennis Etchison

    Not sure if anyone else was into TOR paperbacks back in the day or not, but Dennis Etchison has passed away at 76.

    "Dennis Etchison, 76, died May 28, 2019. Etchison was a major writer and editor of horror fiction, especially in the ’80s and ’90s, and received a Bram Stoker Award for lifetime achievement in 2017.

    He began publishing short fiction in the 1960s, and notable stories include British Fantasy Award winners “The Olympic Runner” (1986) and “The Dog Park” (1993), and BFA and World Fantasy Award winner “The Dark Country” (1981). Some of his stories were collected in World Fantasy Award finalist The Dark Country (1982), Red Dreams (1984), The Blood Kiss (1988), The Death Artist (1999), Talking in the Dark (2001), Fine Cuts (2006), Got to Kill Them All & Other Stories (2009), and A Long Time Til Morning (2014).

    Etchison’s original novels include Darkside (1986), Shadowman (1993), California Gothic (1995), and Double Edge (1996). His first book was a novelization of the John Carpenter film The Fog (1980), and he did other film novelizations, notably for David Cronenberg’s Videodrome (1983, as Jack Martin) and for the Halloween franchise (also as Martin). He was highly knowledgeable about film, studying it in college and serving as a consultant to Stephen King for his non-fiction volume Danse Macabre (1981); he also wrote for television."
