The new horror anthology book called “Monster Party” is now on sale on Ebay for the lowest price ever offered and SIGNED by one of the authors.
This book is a collection of 14 horror stories written by 14 indie writers and spans the range of sub-genres including supernatural horror, sci-fi horror, horror-comedy, and more.
The color cover edition of Monster Party was published in December, 2019 by Deadman’s Tome.
Here are some of the stories included –
THE ANT PEOPLE by Carlton Herzog.
This is surreal comedic horror tale that reads like an insane version of Gulliver’s Travels. A man is accosted by a civilization of intelligent ants who invade his apartment via his bathroom toilet, using a very small submarine.
Well written and enthralling for the depiction of the rapidly deteriorating scene inside the main character’s bathroom, this is another MONSTER PARTY entry that makes the book well worth reading.
THING IN THE SHED by Mike T. Lyddon.
A horde of very tiny monsters unleashed on one dark and stormy night in this creepy tale that combines classic horror with modern science fiction. People familiar with nanotechnology or bio-nanotechnology will also find this cautionary tale of interest.
MOTHSQUITO by Pedro Iniguez.
A film crew is shooting a b-movie about a giant scorpion called “Scorpisaurus” when they discover that there is a real mutant horror lurking in the sun-baked desert…
This is the classic concept of “monster movie becomes real,” and Iniguez hits it right on the money with the annoying low budget director Dino DeLuca, the clunky fumbling with the giant scorpion creature (which figures beautifully into the plot), the starlet trying to make it in Hollywood.
MOTHSQUITO is a very well written horror-comedy that never slacks on the pacing, delivers gallons of blood and gore, and totally pays off with a suspenseful yet hilarious resolution.
All of these great stories and much more are part of this fantasic new anthology book called MONSTER PARTY…and you’re invited!

Direct from the Horror On Sea film festival comes a new review of director Mike T. Lyddon’s new movie, Witch Tales aka Cuentos de la Bruja from film critic Donovan Smith of The House of Tortured Souls.
“The stories were great and the gore was fantastic.”
“…a spooky and disgusting film. It digs under your skin and stabs at your fears.”
Thank you, Donovan Smith for your kind words.
Witch Tales is scheduled for blu-ray/dvd release at the end of April, 2020. Please continue to follow our site, Horror Anthology Movies for further details!
Writer – filmmaker Mike Lyddon at the Days of the Dead horror event in Atlanta, Ga.
The annual DAYS OF THE DEAD horror convention in downtown Atlanta, Georgia concluded late Sunday afternoon after three days of genre celebrities, panels, movies, vendors, late-night parties and frightful fun had by all.
Indie writer and filmmaker Mike T. Lyddon was on hand for the event for a screening of his short film THING IN THE SHED, his screenplay titled THE CORDYCEPS PRINCIPLE for the Script Writing Contest, his feature film WITCH TALES up for Best Foreign Film of 2019, and the launch of the new Days of the Dead book series edited by Joe Moe, the first book in the series aptly titled “Atlanta Screeches,” wherein Lyddon has a short story called THE HOUSE ON GREENVILLE STREET.
Although he didn’t win any awards for his film or screenplay, Lyddon was able to sell 25 DVDs and books at the Reels of the Dead vendors’ table while meeting some of the many fascinating folks attending the convention. He also sold several copies of the excellent Deadman’s Tome publication MONSTER PARTY, an anthology book that includes his story THING IN THE SHED.
In collaboration with the popular DAYS OF THE DEAD horror conventions which take place nationwide every year, Black Bed Sheet Books has released the first in a series of anthologies called GEORGIA SCREECHES.
The book contains 16 tales of terror to thrill and delight including indie filmmaker and writer Mike Lyddon’s short story “The House on Greenville Street,” a creepy modern gothic tale about old cemeteries, abandoned streets, and the strangest house you ever saw.
Georgia Screeches is now available on KINDLE and paperback for purchase here.
In his latest article for Screamfix, filmmaker – writer Mike Lyddon talks about ways for authors and filmmakers to connect and collaborate on new projects. One excellent way is to attend genre conventions or film festivals that support indie filmmakers and writers and generally have a good turnout of the two.
“There are many horror – science fiction – fantasy conventions worldwide now. Some of the biggest include Mad Monster Party, Days of the Dead, and Horror Hound Weekend…a large number of indie filmmakers attend these events because all of them have film festivals as part of their schedule.”
He goes onto explain that Days of the Dead has recently begun a new series of indie books based upon the cities in which their events take place. This will definitely draw more writers to the shows, and with Days of the Dead “Reels of the Dead” film festivals, the opportunity for authors and cineasts to mingle and talk shop will greatly increase.
Indie Connect is a new resource created by Mike Lyddon and Screamfix founder D.C. Harrison wherein writers can submit “pitches” to interested filmmakers in a variety of genres and sub-genres. Stories, novellas, novels, screenplays, and concepts are all welcome on Indie Connect.
Mike Lyddon signs some copies of Horror Anthology Movie DVD at HIFF 2019.
Indie filmmaker Mike T. Lyddon was a guest at the 2019 Halloween International Film Festival in Kill Devil Hills, NC.
His new feature film WITCH TALES aka CUENTOS DE LA BRUJA was screened to enthusiastic response, and after the showing Lyddon did a Q&A with Sue Artz.
In the Q&A, Mike talks about the genesis of the film which is based upon pre-code horror comic books of the 1950s.
He also talks about the censorship of the period and how those comic books were banned and burned after public outcry driven by Frederic Wertham’s book “Seduction of the Innocent.”
