Jekyll and Hyde showed drugs/altered states can be integral to horror tales. While drugs are more varied, they still make great tent poles. Read about a dealer with a customer so persistent a funeral doesn't kill his buzz; a scientist who takes a trip inside an ape's head; an amnesiac trapped in a building surrounded by plague victims; and a sick man in Vegas is forced to reconsider his odds.

About the Author

Although I've been a rabid fan of horror fiction since I was eight years old, this is among my first published fiction (though I wrote comic books for DC, Marvel and Harvey in the 70s).
I'm best known in the world of videogames. Along with Arnie Katz, I was the first full time electronic game journalist. Our review column, "Arcade Alley" debuted in 1978 in VIDEO and the first consumer electronic gaming magazine, ELECTRONIC GAMES, followed in 1981.
I have helped launch close to a dozen magazines (Videogames & Computer Entertainment, the 90s revival of EG, Gamefan Sports Network, PC Ace, etc., as well as game sites including Happy Puppy.
I've written many, many game strategy books and one set of memoirs, "Confessions of The Game Doctor" (Rolenta Press).
I've designed or consulted on literally dozens of games, testified as an expert witness in three different trials (Atari Vs. KC Munchkin, Nintendo Vs. Galoob and Capcom Vs Data East) and taught game design for several years at UNLV.
