Eleventh Hour Literary Press is excited to release the Official Cover for
A Night at the Dream Theater
from Award Winning Horror Author Mark Taylor!
Without employ you are nothing. Leander is without employ. If only he hadn’t shared that sandwich he wouldn’t have ended up lying in a bunk next to a man called Chimp, with a moist blanket over him.
But then he couldn’t have ended up working at Total Entertainment. The only entertainment company.
Leander works in Stimulated Awakenings. He creates Cerebral Implants. Dreams. Dreams sold as interactive adventures to those that can afford them. But Leander has a problem. The reality he is in and the other one are becoming a bit of a blur. He’s beginning to doubt what is real, and what is a dream.
And he’s been told without uncertainty, that is the point.
Trapped in an employ he cannot resign from, Leander fights to understand the politics of the community he works in, finding friends and discovering enemies is only the beginning. Once he begins to understand, he realizes that he understands nothing.
It is all very confusing.
Hemorrhaging realities, A Night At The Dream Theater creates a cocktail of hard science, bloody horror, and twisted humor.
Keep an eye out for upcoming information regarding the release of this terrifying tale of twisted darkness!

Author Ian Thomas Malone talks Books
Reading a book you really enjoy is already a treat, but finding out more about the influences behind the writing tends to add layers and dimensions to an already fantastic text. If you haven't read Five College Dialogues or/and Five More College Dialogues by Ian Thomas Malone yet, you're missing out. Unlike most books on the market today, The Dialogues Series is written in Socratic Dialogue - something that is unfamiliar to the majority of modern texts currently adorning the shelves of bookstores.
The text draws you in immediately - moving forward at a speedy pace, while digesting relevant issues that all college students inevitably face. Great for current students, future college students, or even alumni - the most unique identifier in this series is that they contain little to no arbitrary descriptions - the books rely solely on discussions to propel the story forward.
Find out more about what Influenced Malone to write his stand-out series in Socratic Dialogue on his blog, here.
The first two books in The Dialogue series are available through Amazon in ebook, and where ever books are sold in print format. The ebook versions are currently on-sale for .99 cents each for a limited time alone!

Halloween Fun with Mark Taylor
1. What drove you towards the horror genre as a writer?
I’ve always been a fan. I saw Hellraiser several (many) years before I was supposed to. I was a massive fan of the Angela Sommer-Bodenburg Little Vampire novels when I was small. Hell, I still have them. But the spectacle of horror has always been…attractive. Yeah, let’s say attractive. I mean, what, you’re NOT supposed to love blood spurting from a throat twelve feet across the room?
2. What is your favorite scary movie?
Nope. Too many times I have been asked. I’ll start with my most treasured. That’s In The Mouth of Madness. I love me some Sam Neill. John Carpenter’s hidden masterpiece. Of course, there’s the Elm Street vs. Friday 13 question. I’m full on Elm Street. But modern horror has taken a new twist. It’s become good again. The 90’s pretty much sucked. Horror film was trapped in a merry-go-round of, well, bullshit. Some people credit Craven for fixing that with Scream. I love Scream, it’s a great movie. As for the change of perspective from the makers? Who knows. But lately some films have been leaping from the screen. The Conjuring. Man, that was great, but the list goes on, Insidious, The Babadook, Unfriended… I think we’re on the boundary of a new age of horror.
3. Do you prefer psychological thrillers or slasher films/books.
For books, it has to be psychological thrillers. I do like slasher-y books, even maybe wrote one or two, but for the page I prefer something a little more “thinky”. Film? Slasher. Gore. Beer. Take-out. Hold on, that’s my Friday night.
4. What is the scariest thing you've ever read?
The check at the local Indian? No? Okay, Clive Barker. I was reading The Books of Blood in an airport terminal. *pooped*
5. Do you dress up for Halloween?
No, I always look like this.
6. The writing community is a pretty tight-knit world. Is the horror community as welcoming and supportive as the rest of the literary community or do you guys keep to yourselves?
More so. Horror writers are the best people in the world. Yeah, think that people that write about fairies and candles are fine? They’re thinking about murdering someone, right? Horror writers? Yeah it’s all killing this, and castrating that, but secretly we’re all about the cupcakes. But don’t tell, yeah?
7. When most people think of horror authors/screenwriters, they think of a creepy, sadistic loner in a dark room writing. Is there any truth to this stereotype or are horror writers just like everyone else?
Well, yes, I am creepy, sadistic, and write in a dark room. But I’m not a loner! Nah. We’re just like everyone else. I met David Prowess (Darth Vader OT) and amazingly he’s not actually a Dark Lord of the Sith. I have a family, a kitten, I eat fried chicken. Yep, pretty much the same as everyone else.
8. Do you ever write outside of the Horror genre?
I do. I write for charity on occasion (Like a Girl Anthology coming November 14!!) and that can be in any genre. I write science fiction and fantasy, both magical and dark, within the Devil’s Hand/Witches series. I read outside of the genre a lot, so I think that has bias me towards writing in other genres. Besides, man cannot live on bread lone, right?
9. There are phobias and fears of everything these days, from clowns (Okay, those are pretty creepy) to crowds. Do you have any silly phobias or fears? If not, what are you scared of?
I’m scared of the usual things. No, not clowns. I don’t like spiders but I don’t worry about them. I suppose in the soul baring sense I’m afraid of death, being alone, failing my family. Sorry, got a bit deep there. Um, monkey’s?
10. What's the best thing about Halloween?
I don’t have kids, and being in England, we’re only just catching on to the whole Halloween’s a massive thing, thing. But since I was young it’s always been a night of horror movies on television. Up until around eight, maybe nine, years ago we only had four channels here (I don’t know how we coped). But every year one of the channels would show a horror movie. It was unheard of. TV here just didn’t show that sort of thing.
Mark Taylor's upcoming novel Strange: A Dark and Surreal Collection will be available on November 16th, 2015.
