I’ve recently learned of, and joined, a newly formed Chicago based horror/sci-fi/monster blog web ring called the Chicago Ghouls. Being a life-long resident of the Chicagoland area, I’m proud to be among other like-minded bloggers and horror fiends from the Windy City. Chicago has a long-standing monster kid tradition and it’s about time it gets recognized! We have an amazing horror store (Horrorbles), one of the best horror conventions in the country (Flashback Weekend) and it goes without saying we’re home to Svengoolie for fuck’s sake! The name of this blog is even an homage to Chicago punk legends Naked Raygun (Basement Screams was their first EP!) So head over to Chicago Ghouls and get to know some of the folks from the neighborhood. It’s a fairly young site but I’m really looking forward to see what comes out of it.
