Gehenna & Hinnom is proud to have worked with the following, talented writers.
G.A. Miller discovered horror very early on, courtesy of Creature Features on television in the late-1950’s/early-1960’s. There, he first saw the Universal classic monster movies and many others. As he grew a little older, a friend’s brother had a treasure trove of EC Comics from the mid-1950’s and this only furthered his fascination.
In 1976, he browsed paperbacks at a newsstand, a cover catching his eye. Embossed black, with one spot of color on it: a red drop of blood. It was the first paperback printing of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot, and it marked his induction as a Constant Reader, a position he still enjoys to this day.
Updates on Miller’s ventures as a writer and horror enthusiast can be found on his website: G.A. Miller
