Today is Manly Wade Wellman's Birthday. If you've read my horror fiction or just spent much time at my blog of my Facebook page then you know what a big influence Wellman has been on my writing. I was very proud to moderate a panel about Wellman and Karl Edward Wagner at this year's World Horror Con, and I was very pleased to see that Wellman is still well remembered and admired by many readers and writers. So Happy Birthday to Manly Wade Wellman. The voice of the mountain still calls to all with an ear to listen.
