Michael West is known for his haunting tales of fiction, but it is his true account of the Indiana Horror Writers’ Winter Retreat that has recently caused quite a stir.  The event was held in the haunted Woodcarver’s building in Converse, Indiana, and Mr. West’s retelling of the real-life creepiness within is as engaging as any of his short stories or novels.   These blog entries will be collected and  reprinted in the upcoming Dark Harvest anthology (due in June), but if you can’t wait, you can read them right now on his MySpace blog or in his journal, “Horrid Ravings,” by Michael West.com Messageboard.
