In case you haven't seen the interviews the mighty fine Jordan Clark of The Aswang Project conducted with THE LOST JOURNAL team (click here for the Writers interview, and here for the Artists interview), I had this to say at the tail end of our talk:

I imagine the possibility/reality of a Volume 2 (and, fingers crossed, beyond!) will lie in the public reaction to the first JOURNAL. (So, if you guys want to see more, then get your friends and your family to pick up their own copies and not mooch on yours!)

That still holds true, so, if you've been thinking of eventually picking up the JOURNAL, do us a solid and pick it up now (or, at the very least, ASAP).
And if you've already got a copy and have faith in our creative voices, then convince friends, family, and complete strangers to get their own copies!
Spread the Truth!
So we can all go beyond the JOURNAL!   

Thanx again to Jordan, for helping get the JOURNAL word out.

THE LOST JOURNAL OF ALEJANDRO PARDO: Creatures & Beasts of Philippine Folklore is now out (P295).

For those outside of the Philippines, it's available as a PDF from the Buqo Bookstore.

Once again, thanx to all you mighty fine folk for the enthusiasm and support.
Please feel free to spread the word and the love…

you can’t drink just six,

Candidate #9

(March 2016)

So in mid-January, Bad Robot stealthbombed us with the trailer for a heretofore unannounced “spiritual successor” to ¡Q horror! 2008 title, Cloverfield, Dan Trachtenberg’s 10 Cloverfield Lane (which began life as The Cellar, and was developed and produced under the code name Valencia).

The initial trailer--brilliantly orchestrated to Tommy James & The Shondells’ “I Think We’re Alone Now”--certainly revved up my geek engine, and I was in constant fear of getting spoiled by the Internets before I had a chance to see the film.
Luckily, I was not, and here we are, with a ¡Q horror! slot staked out in its own name.

I will, of course, not tell you anything that you can’t pick up from the trailer, other than this…
Though Trachtenberg has confirmed that “… [Cloverfield and 10 Cloverfield Lane] are not in the same timeline,” look who’s the Bold Futura Employee of the Month for February 2016
John Goodman’s Howard Stambler…
Maybe this is an alternate reality from the original Cloverfield, and an alternate reality Tagruato Corporation…?

Whatever the case, in this reality, 10 Cloverfield Lane is a solid candidate for some ¡Q horror! love…
