But, offsetting all of that, I have actually been more productive than I have been in YEARS. In 2013 I wrote a number of short stories, most of which were published in various outlets, and I published a short story collection called Dr. Gangrene’s Tales from Parts Unknown in 2014. I completed a Youtube series called The Fantastic Films of Vincent Price where I made a video for every single Vincent Price movie. I won 5 Rondo Awards in the 2010s, hosted movies at 2 drive-ins (including the annual Creepy Cruise-in in Georgetown, IN), kept our Horror Hootenanny punk show going (16 years and counting) and hosted the annual live show at Wonderfest with a number of special guests including Caroline Munro, Sara Karloff, Victoria Price, Bill Malone, and John Amplas.
2019 was my 20th Anniversary as a TV horror host. The first episode aired on July 1, 1999. To celebrate the event Dr. Gangrene returned to the Nashville scarewaves with a new show called Dr. Gangrene’s Cinetarium, which aired each week in October on Nashville’s CW 58 at 7pm Saturday nights.
