I first want to thank you for being, still to this day, many to read my horror movie reviews. They were almost exclusively written by me, but Jason Kealey and I used to share the translation aspect (forgive us our spelling mistakes, in French and English!).
But my love for horror is, and has always been, impeccable. Like yours. I’ve worked in the video game, film and illustration industries. Considering marketing principles and dark things are often perceived as a bad mix, even an artist who is a fan of horror, who could otherwise actually do horror, ends up drawing for kids, making music for publicity spots, or get really good at math or in other tasks related to his or her skills, before finally lighting his or her first monster, writing a first script, or shooting a first budgeted movie.
I have a couple of horror-related projects in the making that I will share here, later on. I therefore didn’t abandon the horror section of Shade.ca
I present to you today my first book, “Your Power: Tangible Occult”.
To most people, this book is published under the “self-improvement” / “personal coaching” genre on Lulu.com, our original publisher. Let’s not hide from the fact that many of us, horror fans, have impressed an interest for the occult, the “dark arts”. After all, aren’t real magic and the supernatural where half our movies take their roots from?
This book pretends being able to prove certain notions of the occult, of magic, or of any of their synonyms. I am persuaded that any magic becomes nothing more and nothing less than science once the secret is revealed.
I have a power and I do not know what to make of it. I have a scientific mind and I want to broadcast the formula to engage and propagate discussion. The trick leading to the power I write of is simple, easy, and much easier than most things people are ready to accomplish simply to acquire the illusion of “power”.
I recommend my book to temporary or permanent fans of supernatural and the occult.
The book can be purchased by clicking on the banner above!
I invite you, especially, horror movie fan, who kept giving a sense to my work across the years, to write to me for more details on YOUR POWER at steve[at]shade[dot]ca or to visit the official site.
"Before HBO, there was EC Comics. In the 50’s, William M. Gaines, publisher, started to give into horror. Inspired by spooky radio shows, comic book collections Vault of Horror, Crime Stories, Haunt of Fear and Crypt of Terror would challenge people to read them.
Inevitably, those publications would draw the attention of younglings. His comic books became very popular. They were violent, gory and the ending would usually punish the bad guys in a much more gruesome manner than what their victims had suffered."
