Friday Night Frights is the first and only horror-themed show to come out of Central California. While our show primarily focuses on the horror genre, we also like to discuss and showcase artists, bands, filmmakers, actors/actresses, companies, businesses, and individuals that are doing great things, both locally and beyond.

An Apple for the Creature is a new anthology edited by Charlaine Harris and her partner in the paranormal-collection business, Toni L.P. Kelner. I love this book, but I’ll tell you what’s going to happen on Amazon and other review sites.

When Jeeves quit after working only twenty minutes of vacuuming one sunshiny spring morning, I didn’t think it was that big a deal. Maybe he hadn’t gotten fully charged at his comfy docking station. I picked the dear little thing up and placed him carefully back at his home. His tiny orange heart started beating, telling me he was happily charging. All was well with the world. I was so glad I had a Roomba.
