    The last two sentences of this page really interest me. There is a LOT going on there, and it’s expressed in so few words.

    Any word on the August Bonus Story?

    Glad you like the sharp turn into the territory of “OMGWTFMONSTERSRUNN!!1!” That’s always fun to write.

    Nothing to announce on the bonus story yet. I know exactly what I’m going to write, I just haven’t had time to write it yet. Maybe this weekend. Needless to say, anybody who donates in August will get it, regardless of when I actually write it.

    You know DI, I should of asked this years ago but… Where the hell do you come up with this stuff? The wall of horrors is ONE of the most twisted things that I have seen you write.

    It’s not THE most twisted. But it is sure as hell up there. And yes, “OMGWTFMONSTERSRUNN!!!!” is always great!

    Ideas come from everywhere, including other stuff I’ve read and seen. The giant worms that have turned up in various things I’ve written are all pretty much inspired by the giant sandworms of Dune. The wall of horrors is partially inspired by a scene near the end of “In the Mouth of Madness” where the main character is being briefly chased down a corridor by a whole bunch of Lovecraftian OMGWTFs. The individual things and creatures that are briefly described all come from… hell, I don’t know. I sat down to write and there they were. Mostly I try to come up with something that would disturb ME if I were to encounter it… thus insects and insect-like things are heavily represented. And some aren’t necessarily intended to frighten… just screw with the characters (and readers) heads a bit. Or a lot. There are a couple of things in next week’s pages that are of that variety.
