In life, death aka the Grim Reaper stalks us all, no one can beat this hunter, many of us either mark our flesh with his image or have his likeness on our walls, desks, and shelves, all to force us to strive forward, knowing it seeks us out at some point. As many artists want the accolades and glory, just enough to be remembered, The Horror Times recognizes their contributors to this great genre each month.
