Horror writer, Halloween nut, Bald Feminist, & all-round putz.
Myk Pilgrim is a horror writer, or at least that's what he likes to tell people.
He lives in a town just north of the wall, where he spends his time sharing cappuccinos with his inner demons, binge-watching horror movies with his equally demented writing partner and wife Pippa Bailey, shaving his head, annoying the locals, and generally just counting down the days until Halloween.
Also, sometimes, he writes stuff.
Myk’s work has appeared alongside Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell, Jack Ketchum, Joe R Lansdale, and his partner in crime Pippa Bailey in Dark Faces Evil Place 2.
His stories have been published in 13 Wicked Tales; a Wicked Library Anthology, featured on the Wicked Library podcast, Frisson Comics, Sirens Call Magazine, & Holiday-themed horror collections with his partner Pippa Bailey; Poisoned Candy: Bite-sized Horror for Halloween, Bloody Stockings: Bite-sized Horror for Christmas, & Rancid Eggs: Bite-sized Horror for Easter.
Myk is in the process of moving his site - so, if things feel a little "light on content" don't be alarmed.
Things will be rectified as time permits, and the regularly scheduled chaos will resume shortly after.

All that is required for evil to succeed is for good people to stand by and do nothing.
I know that trump isn't the reason that America is the way it is, but by being in the white house he has set a precedent that you can be a racist and liar and a bigot in public without consequence.
Now, people all over the world think they can copy him, because like it or not, the world follows in America's footsteps.
Fashion in Soweto in the 70's was dictated by USA media.
We use colloquialisms, slang, and shorthand because that's how America do.
Mostly all of the world's entertainment diet comes from Holywood.
Like it or not, it affects us all.
A vote for trump, isn't just a vote for trump, it's a declaration that woman are subhuman things only good for receiving your seed.
You are actively saying that black people should be shot in the street.
You are saying that LGBTQ people deserve death.
You choose him over millions of people who have been abandoned to die in this pandemic.
You are siding with the KKK and white supremacists.
You endorse hatred and division, you are okay with lies, with children in cages.
That is what you are choosing and you know it.
This has never been a "let's agree to disagree issue" if you choose him, you're against all the rest of humanity.
Your silence is endorsement.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

“A Fish Doesn’t Know” by Myk Pilgrim The Wicked Library 1011:
Season 10 continues with a wet and Wicked wild wade into the waves.
Nicola Hope is exhausted, tired, buggered even.
She spends most of her time sweating like a pig in the Horny Haggis kitchen, but now that she's done for the day, all she wants is to sit at the bar and guzzle down all the beer in the world - and maybe just maybe, if she's lucky enough, she might even score a little action. It's always nice not to spend the night alone.
But that all disintegrates like a politician’s promise when her mother texts. Mostly everything Nicola loves crumbles when Mammie touches them, and Mammie likes nothing more than touching the things that make her daughter happy.
Set in Dreich, the same damp Scottish town as "The Nun's Cat", Myk Pilgrim's contribution to The Wicked Library's 13 Wicked Tales Anthology – “A Fish Doesn't Know” is about the terrible joy at seeing yourself as you are.

Figured I'd better start harping on about my best legs status before Tim Lebbon gets a leg in (see what I did there?) and kicks this award into the big leagues (yes I did it again)
Between you and me though, CC Adams was absolutely fucking robbed.
By me, I robbed him.
Sorry not sorry.
Thanks Phil Sloman for not kicking me in the teeth.
