20 Haunting Pictures Of Abandoned Asylums

20 Haunting Pictures Of Abandoned Asylums

Abandoned mental asylums litter forgotten landscapes across the world. But these spooky buildings don’t compare to the fright you’ll experience inside the notorious Briarcliff Manor, the setting of American Horror Story: Asylum. Whet your macabre appetite with these haunting photos, and commit yourself to American Horror Story: Asylum. Wednesdays at 10p only on FX.

[My personal note – In Japan, ruins are known as haikyo (廃虚?) (literally “abandoned place”).  There is a growing interest in Haikyo exploration and photography if you are also interested in the eerie coolness of things falling apart.  I have posted other posts on this, including abandoned Soviet Union cold war facilities and abandoned amusement parks.]

You’ve Been Asking – Here She is… (Warning: Graphic Images)

Kiera Von Seirbigh (Ketaklysm) is a very cool person who created the character “Blademouth.”  She was kind enough to give me permission to use it on the cover of Twisted Nightmares. (Available on Kindle)  She is a young make-up artist at NitroxSFX and can be found on Facebook and Deviant Art.  If you appreciate her work, give her a shout out.  If you need a make-up artist, you can see she is extremely talented and doing techniques that are pretty unique.  Please keep her in mind for projects.

Here is a collage of her characters and some of her.  If I find out any of you act like jerks, I will hunt you down, find you, and do a Liam Neeson.

Horror Anthology Submissions Requested

For all of you writers or aspiring writers, each year I help publish an anthology on one subject.  Last year, we published Twisted History, and all the stories were alternative history.  It was “twisted” because we had comedy writers, fiction, non-fiction and other genre writers all writing alternative history.  This year, the topic is horror, and the working title is Twisted Nightmares.  We accept any form of writing, poems, flash fiction, or short stories up to 5,000 words.  Your submissions are judged anonymously by a panel of writers and editors.  Selected submissions will then be professionally edited and returned to you for changes.  The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2013.  Expected publication date is March 1, 2013.  Here is a flyer which has more detail, and also has our cover, supplied to us by the original photographer for use.  (more on them later :-))
