Inspiring Fear: ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? – New DVDs!

hblf, lfneJason L Blair30 June 2014

As a huge fan of the series, this is amazing news: Amazon CreateSpace is bringing back Are You Afraid of the Dark? on DVD!

The first two seasons are currently available—for the ridiculously low price of $11.99. If there is one series I recommend for fans of Little Fears, it’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? It’s amazing television that I cannot oversell.

I scoured the secondary market to collect the original DVD releases that have been out of print for about ten years and paid about $40 back for each season, on average (and I got some *good* deals). Seeing them back in print, at such a low price, makes my heart sing. Do yourself a favor and pick these up:

The print proof for Little Fears Nightmare Edition Book 3: Blessed are the Children is here! And it looks good!

I have approved the proof and set production into motion. I should have book on-hand very soon. Which means backer rewards should start going out inside a couple weeks. I’ll update everybody when the books arrive and envelopes start getting stuffed. Below are some (awesome camera-phone) pics of the proof. (Click on each image for a bigger picture.)

The (Long Overdue) Dice and Book 3 Print Update

lfneJason L Blair29 April 2014

The Dice are In!

They came in a couple weeks ago, actually. If you ordered only dice then your order is in the mail. You should have it by the end of the week (I hope) or early next week at the latest. If you don’t receive them, let me know! Check out the pics of the dice below:

These are beautiful, high-quality dice produced by the craftsfolk at Chessex. I’m very happy with the quality of these dice.

Book 3 is Printing!

Book 3 is at the printers and (I very much hope) on track to be in my hands, and then soon into yours, in a couple weeks. This is later than anticipated but I’m glad I took the time to go over the book, incorporate your feedback, and clean up some typos and layout errors. It’ll be a more beautiful and more useful book for it.

And that’s where things are at. Thank you all for your patience. I really appreciate it. Once the books are in, I’ll have a lot of envelope stuffing to do but I look forward to it.

Inspiring Fear: The Babadook

lfneJason L Blair27 February 2014

Put this one of your radars, folks.

Back in 2005, writer/director Jennifer Kent put out a short film titled Monster. The movie focused on a mother, trying to soothe her son’s fear of the creatures in his closet, who becomes aware of a sinister presence that may be all too real. Kent has expanded that idea, with the help of a successful Kickstarter*, into a full-length feature called The Babadook.

While I haven’t found a slated release date yet, it will show at some festivals this year. I really hope it gets a wide release or, at the very least, a DVD/BluRay release. It looks fantastic, and I love the mythology the trailer hints at.

You check out the trailer below.

The blurb on the Kickstarter says:

THE BABADOOK is a psychological horror about a mother who becomes possessed by a monster that wills her to kill her 6-year-old son.

Which, for the record, you’ll find in Book 3: Blessed are the Children, which focuses on souls and ghosts and possession and the kids stuck in the middle of that mess. I cannot wait to see this film.

*I’m kicking myself for not having run across the Kickstarter when it was going. How did I miss it?
