With a heavy heart, we share that horror favorite Jack Ketchum, known as Dallas Mayr to friends, has passed away. The 2011 Grandmaster of Horror was suffering from cancer and died in the morning. Ketchum was a prolific horror author dealing with the harsh realities of how hurt people can hurt people horrifically. Ketchum was known to give back and encourage young horror writers and very beloved in the horror community. He will be missed greatly.
