Cato's List of Horror

I should change the name of this site to LISTS OF HORROR because that's all I've been posting here lately as you may have noticed.  So what; the kids love 'em.

Today's special guest blogger is Nick Cato, one of the nicest guys I've ever met in the horror community, who also happens to be interested in a lot of the same stuff that I am. He's a writer, editor, publisher, columnist, rock 'n' roller and probably a bunch of other things I don't even know about. Despite being the owner of two dachshunds, he's still one of my favorite people and you should all check out his link below.
