The Horror Geek Speaks: The Bookshelf

Perhaps the highest praise I can give to Chas Balun is that without him, there almost assuredly would have never been a Horror Geek. Between Balun and Joe Bob Briggs (a.k.a. John Bloom), I learned at an early age that it was not only okay to love obscure movies designed to titillate and gross-out an audience, but that I could love them and explain why they were so wonderful without sounding like an idiot in the process. Over the years, the influences on my writing have grown almost exponentially, but it always comes back to one simple fact — without Chas Balun both I and a lot of other guys making a living covering cult cinema wouldn’t have a job.
