Under my given name, I have had two non-fiction books published by McFarland & Company, as well as one just recently published by Critical Vision, all devoted to vintage horror cinema and pop-culture memorabilia. Over the last twenty years, I have self published numerous magazines devoted to the same (Painful Excursions, GICK! and Trashfiend) as well as other subjects. I also had an exposť on snuff films published in The Skeptical Inquirer, which has since been reprinted extensively on the net, and for which I have been interviewed numerous times for radio, newspapers, and even two UK documentaries on the subject.
Under my nom de plume of Reginald Bloom, I have had a fair amount of fiction published, but no novels as of this writing. Highlights include entries in the paperback anthology Cold Flesh and the small-press publication Lovecraft's Weird Mysteries #5. My work has also appeared in numerous e-zines, including Crimson, The Art of Horror and Chiaroscuro. (My contribution to the latter online publication placed third in the Seventh Chiaroscuro Short Story Contest, and also received an Honorable Mention in The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror.) During the 1990s, I self-published a great many chapbooks containing various short stories, novelettes and novellas.
I am currently a member of the Horror Writer's Association.
