It was a simple job: keep surveillance on the minister’s wife until she went safely to bed. Then all hell broke loose. The death of the wife of Chicago’s most beloved televangelist is only the beginning: someone is homiciding their way through the congregation of the Temple of Majesty Church. Thanks to his eager young secretary, private eye Nod Blake, an aging throwback to a bygone era of detecting on the mean streets, a dinosaur who never got the memo he was extinct, who sometimes thinks he’s Bogart, George Raft, and Lee Marvin rolled into one, has been dumped in the middle of it all, on his head. The resulting injuries seem to have opened a door to the hereafter. Blake believes dead people are talking to him. Are the victims really begging the last gumshoe for help from the other side of the grave? Or has he lost his friggin’ mind? When his nemesis, Detective Lieutenant Wenders finds evidence that Blake is the murderer, the private dick’s life becomes a great big soup sandwich. Corpses Say the Darndest Things is a murder mystery with a sly sense of humor, set in 1979 Chicago where a maniacal killer on the loose in The Windy City… is the good news.

The last, quite possibly the least, Renaissance man, Doug Lamoreux (a father of three strong men and a grandfather), a lifelong horror film fan and child of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, recognized his incompatibility with the rest of the world – and gave it all up to act and write. He appeared in Mark Anthony Vadik’s The Thirsting (aka Lilith) and Hag. He starred in Peter O’Keefe’s Infidel and Boris Wexler’s The Arab. All interspersed with forty years in theater (during which he fell off the stage twice). Now he writes swell horror novels. The first-ever Igor Award recipient from The Horror Society, Doug is a former Pushcart Prize nominee, Rondo Award nominee, and his novel, Dracula’s Demeter, was a 2012 Lord Ruthven Award nominee for fiction.
