If you’re a fan of Deadman’s Tome and enjoy reading the content, then you should look yourself in the mirror and ask “why haven’t I become a patron, yet?”
Gary Buller is the man. He is the first and only patron at the moment. If I ever feel the need to split the tasks and request help or even talk business proposals, he would be first choice.
Even if you became a patron today and out did his $1 pledge, you would still be less than him, because he’s that awesome. You could, howeve, be one of the more recognized fans and support the Deadman’s Tome patreon! Plus, it only takes a dollar. Becoming a patreon is super easy and super cheap.
How do you become a patreon? The link is right here.
Get ready for the exciting world of stats!
No, I’m not going to post a borefest. No one would read that. However, you’ve probably noticed the bulging orange erection of 2016! The views on the Deadman’s Tome has increased drastically. I’m honestly impressed.
How did Deadman’s Tome jump from below 5,000 to 16,000? I’ll tell you why. It’s because of the content. It’s because of the aggressive pay for performance approach.
Speaking of pay.
This is a list of the TOP performing stories of 2016. Red lines indicate stories I’ve paid for. Dave Hann, your payment is next.
What’s the method to my madness? length of time.
Unbloom by Kristine Hall-Garcia shot through the roof. The story was published two months ago, roughly. Yet, the story has already climbed the charts. Is it stat padding? is it boosting? Is she paying for hits? I don’t know, and I’m mostly joking Mrs. Hall. What it tells me is that Kristine knows how to network. She should spread some of that horror love to other stories, and I’m sure she will.
Authors and newcomers, it is in everyone’s best interest to read, like, and share the horror. Believe me, when you share other people’s work, they’ll share yours. If they don’t, then I will get on to them about being a dick.
Write horror and want to join in on this craziness? Then what the fuck are you waiting for? Read the submissions page and send your submission.
Mr. Deadman can’t do a show tonight because he has “on-call”. That’s right, your so-professional publisher is out working the night shift “escorting” ladies and gentlemen back to their homes and backseats to support the Tome.

He’s asked me, Undead Greg, to fill in. But the dead dude sprung this up last moment. I present to you one of my more popular Zombie Times episodes.
As a red flag of society, I love comments and praises. Please let me know what you think of the episode and you’ll be given 30 min of zombie immunity when the inevitable zombie apocalypse happens.
And feminists in America say that they are living in a patriarchy. Why? Because of media representation? Talk about a self-entitled, coddled, pampered, first world problem.
A real patriarchal society would
- Permit beatings
- Punish female adulterers with acid in face
- Would require women to walk around as ninjas
- Would prevent women from driving
- Would value goats over women
- Would require THREE women to testify on a rape case. THREE. That’s how little a woman’s word is taken.
- Would allow underage marriage (child sex, let’s be real here)
- Condon honor killings!
Guess what country allows the horrible and misogynistic actions above? Every single Islamic nation. Every single nation where Islam is the rule of the land. Is that wrong? Present evidence.
Guess what country doesn’t allow those horrible misogynistic actions? America.
In America, you can’t kill off your wife and get off Scott free, not unless your OJ Simpson. OJ had money and influence. Everyone knows that America is the land where money and influence runs supreme. But you know what OJ didn’t do? Even he didn’t just admit that he did it. He definitely didn’t admit that he did it as an honor killing.
People in America can’t just kill their wife and move on to the next without getting punished. In America, a man can’t kill a woman as an honor killing and get away with it.
The only two people that could get away with flat out killing someone is Hillary Clinton and male-to-female transvestite with a reality show.
So, feminists, the battle against the patriarchy would be better served in the middle east. I’m sure if you did a kickstarter project called Liberate Middle Eastern Women that people would donate in droves. You would then be in a position to muster real change and liberate women from a truly patriarchal society.
A group of friends break into the house of a wealthy blind man, thinking they’ll get away with the perfect heist. They’re wrong.
Committing the perfect crime is only possible if you have what it takes to endure the nightmare of guilt, remorse, and the occasional haunting.
In the spirit of Don’t Breathe, check out Book of Horrors – More Plastic Wrap a horror short where a broke freeloading thirty something year old plots thought that his mom’s “accidental” death would be easy to cover up.
Also check out Uxoricide by Bob McNeil a horror short that parallels the O.J. Simpson murder situation and illustrates how even egomaniacs aren’t immune to haunting remorse.
Have an opinion and want it heard?
Deadman’s Tome is looking to bring people aboard to help the zine grow.
I am looking for talented writers that can find time here and there to write reviews of horror publications.
I am looking for talented writers with strong conservative political opinions that respect free speech and mock SJW silliness.
I’m looking for people that have an opinion on everything!
