Sunday Supplement 3/27/11

If you remember the first generation low-tech video game The Oregon Trail, check out The Organ Trail. Forget dysentery, busted wagon wheels, and buffalo meat for breakfast... here there be ZOMBIES.

Looking forward to the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie? While you're waiting, check out the eBook of Cast in Dark Waters by Ed Gorman and Tom Piccirilli. This one's got pirates, zombies, and vampires, and I had a blast reading it one summer afternoon a few years ago. Forget Johnny Depp, Cast in Dark Waters is as much fun as a great old school Maureen O'Hara pirate movie, and my only complaint about it is that it wasn't a couple hundred pages longer.

3o Days of Night returns to comics, with Joe R. Lansdale writing. Oh, yeah.

It's been raining here for weeks. Last week I spotted drowned worms floating in the swamped lawns at work. Then I made the mistake of listening to a podcast of Orrin Grey's "The Worm That Gnaws." Man. That's a double-shot of creepy, right there.

Yes. It really is a horror movie.
