My name is Kevin Doherty. And I am a Horrorholic.
My horrorholicism began back when I was a kid. The “Famous Monsters of Filmland” magazine was
responsible. The frightening black and white photos of monstrosities, ghouls, and freaks contained within its pages fascinated me and I was hooked.
My life as a young horror fanatic in 1979 was particularly interesting. I had one quest back then. OK, maybe two. One was to acquire a Pressman “Movie & T.V. Horror Make-up kit” from the local novelty shop so that I could win a best-costume contest at a Halloween party where the first prize was a perm. Two, to win the affections of a really cute girl in my class who really dug guys with Afros. Well, buying something for twenty bucks when earning an allowance of seventy-five cents every two weeks was an impossible task, so I had to come up with different ways of raising the money in time for October. I came up with all sorts of get-rich-quick schemes and what an adventure it was. So much so that I felt it was worth sharing by documenting my experiences in a book.
Culled from the yellowed pages of the diaries I kept back then (dozens and dozens of Hilroy notebooks) I have assembled a novelization of my chronicles of the time when horror took over my life!
