I’m proud to announce that my first anthology to edit, “Carnival of the Damned” is now available for purchase. With authors like Gregory L. Norris, Tracy Carbone, and my lovely wife Hollie Snider, it’s guaranteed to be a fun read.

Carnival of the DamnedCOTD_72_Stack

Edited by Henry Snider
ISBN-13: 978-0692247815

Fifteen tales of dark attractions just waiting for the next wary soul to offer the price of admission.

  • SHOOT the Freak – Win a prize!
  • HAVE a caricature drawn? The price is right!
  • GAZE upon the wonders our Oddities Tent conceals!
  • TRY the Ferris Wheel – It’s the ride of a lifetime!
  • WATCH the Big Top’s center ring fill with beasts beyond Imagination!
  • SEE a reflection of your darkest desires!
  • LIVE in a world where maniacal clowns rule the night!

These are just some of the nightmares this carnival has to offer.





Just a heads-up for those of you attending ANTHOCON in November, Hollie and I will be on a few panels:

1: GETTING YOUR SHORT STORY PUBLISHED WITH THE SMALL PRESS – Both Hollie and I along with Peter Giglio, David Bernstein, Bill Tucker, Gregory L. Norris and moderated by Charles Day.

2: EVIL JESTER PRESS “HELP WANTED: TALES OF ON-THE-JOB TERROR” HOW AN ANTHOLOGY COMES TOGETHER – Both Hollie and I, Charles Day, Bill Tucker, Gregory L. Norris (and potentially a few others)

3: A WRITERS WORKSHOP WITH EDITOR HENRY SNIDER – I’ll be moderating and having David Bernstein and a few others on the panel with me (making my list now and checking it twice – only the naughty get in >;-D ).  We’ll be going over the good, the bad, and the ugly about critique groups and the best ways for writers to tighten their work before submitting to publications.



editing_knifeWell, folks, I’ve got some fantastic news. Starting sometime in September I’ll be officially on staff at Evil Jester Press as an editor. A big thanks to Pete Giglio (my new boss), Charles Day (the publishing house owner) and, of course, to the Mrs. – Hollie (who taught me how to edit with the aid of a blood-red pen and swing of “Mister Stabby.”



editingWell, it was bound to happen sooner or later.  For better than fifteen years I’ve edited others work, founded and ran an award-winning writing group (the Colorado Springs Fiction Writers Group), taught others how to do it for themselves and even gone so far as to teach creative writing.

Now I’ve been hired as an editor on the heels of my wife, Hollie Snider, to help authors at Library of the Living Dead Press.  Talk about big shoes to fill . . . wait . . . can I actually say that in this context and get away with it?

. . . Hollie . . . put down the knife . . . .
