In the coming weeks, you’re going notice a theme amongst articles featured on many of your favorite horror web sites and blogs.
It is my distinct pleasure to announce THE LES DANIELS BLOG TOUR. For the next month, we’ll be “touring” the internet, “Guest Blogging” on some of the genre’s best sites. Our goal? To [...]
First and foremost, thank you all for your outpouring of love, support, and condolences, not just since Bob passed, but for the last nine months. I have never been so grateful, and so proud, to be part of the Necon Family.
I had the profound honor of delivering one of the eulogies at [...]
Dear Necon Family,
Papa is at peace, and free.
Bob Booth — writer, editor, publisher, founder of Necon and Necon E-Books, avid fan of horror and the written word, father, grandfather, mentor and friend — passed away last night shortly after 2AM. As you all know, Bob had been battling cancer for the last eight months [...]

Dear Necon Community,
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we write to you today to ask for your prayers, good thoughts, and positive energy for our Papa Necon, Bob Booth. As some of you may have heard, Bob came down with bronchitis in November. He was sent for a chest x-ray and it [...]
