Christ Leaked

Hat Tips:  Al_Kilyu and Lewis

“Christ Leaked” might make a great title for a short story, eh?  This deserves its own entry.  Besides, scrolling through over 170 comments on my last entry was getting to be a pain.

Nicky’s back on Shocklines, bawwing about how an “unreleashed” novella of his was leaked.  It’s a fairly standard wall-o’-text that will probably get bahleeted.  So far, there are no replies.  Nobody wants to be the first, I suppose, to ask how something that’s never been passed along to anyone else can possibly get leaked.

He’s even got an unsubstantiated claim of being blackmailed.  Dagstine, or an overactive imagination?

*UPDATE*

We knew this was going to happen.  Screengrabs of the whole mess after the cut . . .

There was another snip down to the first reply or two, which I didn’t catch with a screengrab, then the final snip-and-lock down to just the original post.

204 thoughts on “Christ Leaked

  1. Okay…

    Comparing yourself to Metallica when they sued Napster ten years (Christ, it’s been that long?!) is just fucking lame.

    There, I said it. I’ll say it again.

    Of course, the major difference is that Metallica in 2000, they already had sold millions of records and had more money that a lot of people will ever have in their lifetimes. Nicky? Never had anything, never will have anything, and his only real talent is making enemies and making himself look MORE FUCKING STUPID every single day.

  2. I’d say Dagstine is prodding him again… he didn’t get the ooohs and aaaaahs he wanted for his latest turd pile so he went back to messing with Nicky…

    Here’s the amazing thing about computers and the internet… If you create a file and never put it out on the internet, it can’t “appear” there of it’s own accord. If it leaked, that means Nicky gave the file to someone who could have put it out there. My guess is someone pulled a “sock puppet” on him, praised his work and got a copy of his drivel in their inbox later. And then Nicky either forgot he sent it, or excluded that recipient as a suspect because they were “a fan.”

    • If Nicky’s “christ” never “leaked”, a major source of bitching would dry up for him. What would he have then?

      Every employed person I know has some job dissatisfaction. Everyone else just wishes they had a job. It takes a special person like Nicky to imagine a job to be dissatisfied with.

    • He thought he was giving “An Eye In Shadows” to the same nutjob who sent Keene that letter complaining that he wrote a gay character.

      Of course Nicky didn’t actually send a copy to THAT person, just the troll that took credit for it.

      I’ve seen him tell the story of how that got leaked countless times, and it’s always something new. A month ago it was someone on myspace? Some guy? Then last week…hell I don’t even remember what he came up with last week, but it was wrong too. But he claimed he was forced to release “Shadows” early with a shitty cover because of that leak, again bullshit. He didn’t know it leaked until the day he put it for sale. You can see on his blogspot where one post is “It’s for sale! Better buy it to see if you’re mentioned!” then later in the day “@&$#@%* KILL EVERYONE AT ODARK FOR PIRATING IT!!”

      He’s not smart enough to lie well.

    • No Mike that was some other anthologies of his, one of his Tabloid Purposes and something else and Jenny was the one that seized on that. Even though it was his error and she obtained them legally, that was the time where Nicky threatened to murder her and burn down her home.

      But he didn’t do it on Shocklines, so he’s protected!

  3. Muwahaha…

    Even though I can’t see his profile, he left me this on VF

    Who the hell said that I lost Lake Fossil Press? I still run the company. Just because I refuse to publish alternative romance/alt. erotica/alt. Sexuality laced stories that doesn’t mean someone has to do a hostile takeover. Editors don’t hide behind a fake name and use a deviantart.com for their source of operations.

  4. It’s ok, folks… we’ve deployed the Anti-Naspster Unicorn Squadron.

    A.N.U.S. will deal with those pesky naspsterin’ e-pirates!

    • In the past week he’s made so many threads hoping to get someone to join his fight to keep his company and sanity, and every thread ends up just goofing on him.

      It’s hard to take him seriously when he mentions Spectral Exile as something he’s proud of. That video that had it acted out should have shown him how horrible is dialog is.

  5. I think that thread is now the greatest achievement in humankind’s history.

    Previously it was that Spectral Exile video.

    • *bows*

      Although I don’t think unicorns would piss Nicky off like gay men hugging would.

      Oh and as fun as it is to insult him, whoever goes to far and gives Matt an excuse to remove it ends it all (ie personal direct insults) however if there aren’t any posts that would give Matt reason to remove it…

      …a thread of Nicky’s can remain and grow to astounding lengths filled with the most homoerotic content imaginable.

      Think about it…

  6. We have a second page of replies to the thread, and well over 400 views. I’m stunned.

    Oh and as fun as it is to insult him, whoever goes to far and gives Matt an excuse to remove it ends it all (ie personal direct insults) however if there aren’t any posts that would give Matt reason to remove it…

    Matty’s never needed an excuse before. Did someone replace his Kool-Aid with Code Red?

    • Actually Rusty, It’s been knocked back to only Amie’s reply now. I think I may have been viewing the thread as Matt was butchering it because icons and what-not were displaying awful wonkey.
      Hat tip to whomever posted the Worf pr0n!

    • DAMN IT TO HELL.

      Right now on top o the page I see Shocklines and NickolausPacione, so no doubt someone went crying “waaah the other kids still aren’t taking me seriously and filled my thread with unicorns and explosive diarrhea waaaah”.

      We’re like Home Makeover but with threads. We said “driver! move that bus!” and when they did, we had made that thread sooooo much better.

  7. I didn’t quite say “Fuck you Matt” but I just replied to his “last warning” with what probably is the angriest email I’ve sent someone in many months.

    I cause him grief because he has to keep deleting my threads, never mind he has to keep deleting ENTIRE THREADS by Nicky.

    I will say I ended the email with “Make sure Nickolaus gets to bed by 10pm like a good babysitter.”

    • And you know, John Morrisey was either in a bad car accident or had a stroke, I can’t remember which…he’s not a deranged lunatic like Nicky is but you can tell when he posts his thoughts don’t translate exactly to what he types.

      And when he does post, he is mocked mercilessly over there, usually by the angry progressives. Anyway, none of those posts are ever removed, no one that ever makes fun of him for the way he talks ever gets warned. I guess having brain damage is fair game over there but having fun with someone’s hate filled posts isn’t the same because the owner of the site never had brain damage.

      I’m ashamed of myself for giving him any credit or defending him ever, I really am.

    • Got my final warning from dear ole Matty, some nonsense about how you can’t tease and mock other people’s posts on his board.

      I don’t think I’ll dignify it with a reply.

    • It seems that Matty is in love with Nicky. Its a passionate situation. He adores the way that Nicky insults and libels people. He finds Nicky’s behavior quite charming.

    • To keep Nicky around and give him free reign simply because he thinks “Hey that guy has mental issues. I have mental issues.” is…well insane. That sort of enabling is exactly the kind of thing that makes Nicky and other lolcows like him go through life believing they can say and do whatever they want and get away with it because they have some sort of condition (or in Nicky’s case, a dozen). Way to enable a sick person who needs to learn he isn’t entitled to whatever he wants and wants to do in life.

      Really? If Ted Bundy posted on there, would he get protected?

      I used to think that however misguided, Matt meant well. Now I think it’s all about common enemies and since he, Nicky, Philbin, and Dagswine all have common enemies such as odark, Keene, us, etc. THAT is why he gives them free reign.

    • I have to believe that you’re right, Al.

      And this is often a situation I encounter. I spent so many years struggling to pass for ‘normal’ that I basically destroyed my own body forcing it to accomplish things that I could not handle over a sustained period, but I don’t spend all my time weeping over it.

      A month ago my PTSD flared up so bad that I could only manage to sleep two or three hours at a time before the nightmares and flashbacks would force me awake. It wore me out. That went on for two weeks before it subsided.

      Neve knows about it and my staff also. That’s why you will see her posting about the cost to me in stress. But I don’t go waving it like a flag under people’s noses.

      I don’t wave that under people’s noses all the time the way that Nicky does. I try hard to be ‘normal’. And all it gets me is treated like shit because people like Matt fail to realize that anything is wrong and give the wonderful support to people who do not deserve it. People who use it as a crutch.

      As a disabled person, I am totally offended by that.

    • Janrae I explained to Matt sometime ago I am not without my own mental issues, but that didn’t sway him any.

      I’m sorry to hear you’re still having troubles. While they may not be identical, you’re not alone.

      Also looking at the new screencaps…COME ON I got a final warning because the guy who gets his head exploded in Scanners suffers diarrhea?! Really?

    • Well I got mine for joshing with you and Crippus, I never even mentioned or quoted any part of Nicky’s post. I think Matty is just biased against Unicorns, and the Last Unicorn in particular.

  8. Never fear. I’ll go back to edit my entry to include the whole mess, original, plus two snipped versions. It’ll take a minute or two to do the uploads.

    Oh, wait. Now it’s snipped all the way back to only Nicky’s original post, and it’s been locked.

    • When I google’d his name, guess what the very first link to appear was?

      “STEPHEN THEAKER IS A NITWIT” XD

      Wouldn’t it help him to just get out there and put more online and bump it down?

    • There are dozens of ways that he could have bumped it down. Instead he decided to get all butthurt. I just checked my folder and discovered that I said the name wrong, it’s actually labeled “buttcakes”

    • Two years and nada. I had left his name off the tags on the post I did in May so that it would not appear on a google.

      So now I have gone and added his name to the tags.

    • What’s interesting is that Theaker discovered my May 20 post, which until recently I had not added his name to and that now appears to be part and parcel to Pete’s reaction there.

      I have never tried to re-write history. So I will let the posts stand.

      And if Theaker redeems himself in my eyes, then I will post an update stating that he has.

  9. I’ve occasionally seen Theaker/Rolnikov around — mostly on SL — and pretty much always thought he was a pompous ass.

  10. Hey if you folks get a chance please stop by my deviantart and let me know what you think of the covers for DYERS EVE and ETHEREAL GAZETTE ISSUE ELEVEN!

    I had to let the trained monkey Mr. Pacione had doing his covers for past releases and hire a human with Photoshop. Please let us know what you think!

    • The douche box is brilliant. I really like the unicorn and rainbow one, but isn’t it missing lollipops (Charms Blow Pops would be ideal)?

    • Hey Angry, Xerox-Clone said

      ” Go over to his house…and beat his ass…. This has been going on for months.”

      and Nicky replied with

      “I am trying to lure the little fruit to Chicago to tell me to my face that he “owns” Lake Fossil Press while I am choking his sorry ass out. Of all the years that I had the company, I never had this crap happen before the six year anniversary of the imprint. He’s trying to turn it into a limp wristed ass pirate publication. Over my dead body.”

  11. Yesterday Nicky was a part of 19 cults on VF.

    Today I look, and it’s just 18. The Illinois cult is the one that he isn’t a part of anymore.

    I wonder if he quit or got kicked, and either way I wonder if it had anything to do with the Pride parade advertised on there…

  12. From a thread about Lady Gaga on the VF forums.

    “I wanted to punch some dude for wearing a Lady GaGa shirt in Chicago (Ahem! Fucker, this is one of the homes of industrial metal; take that shirt off you fucking pussy.) ”

    Someone better than me needs to photoshop Nicky into the Gaga fan he longs to be.

    • I tend to associate Chicago more with blues (Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy) than anything else musically. There really aren’t a whole lot of major metal bands that originated in and around Chicago.

      Of course, the first rock band I think of whenever Chicago music is brought up is almost always Cheap Trick, along with Styx or Smashing Pumpkins among others.

      I think Nicky only calls Chicago a “metal place” because he heard some old interview where Metallica said that Chicago has “the best live audiences”, the same lip service that they probably give every other city whenever they’re doing interviews.

    • That’s what I was thinking too, Ben. Chicago is a blues town. Now one could argue that blues, once they went across the pond to England, served as the foundation for metal, but that sort of reasoning is beyond Nikki’s capacity.

    • Memphis is the Home of the Blues. W.C. Handy, born in my dad’s hometown of Florence, Alabama, originated it there, and it spread to St. Louis and Chicago during the great northward migration of southern African-Americans in the first third of the 20th Century.

    • All I can think of coming out of Chicago is Ministry and the Wax Trax! lineup. Other than that, cannot care to look it up.

  13. That TTA thread is pretty funny. Daggy keeps butting in, but nobody’s paying him the least attention. It’s almost tragi-comic.

    • He’s always trying to get noticed or fit in somewhere. That’s how we came to know him; after that “interview” with Nicky he sent Janrae a lie-filled email with that “Can I follow you guize around?” reek of it. Of course she said “lol no let me repost this desperate email in public” and thus began his journey to fit in…somewhere…anywhere…

  14. the beautiful, oh and TALENTED of course!, Sarah Pinborough contributed to that thread yet she was deleted by the twat who runs the site! He also deletes comments by the beautiful, oh and TALENTED of course!, Brian Keene but resolutely keeps Pacione’s illiterate, whiny bullshit.

    Hey twat who runs the Shocklines forum: do you honestly think people would rather read some unstable, loser wannabe maggot’s paranoid ramblings about the writing trade or the comments of ACTUAL successful horror novelists on your piece of shit forum? Fuck’s sake, you are a GROUPIE to a welfare-scrounging, in-bred, urban redneck, you moron! He even allows Pacione to libel Ray Garton and Darren McKeeman on his profile – why would any real author use this forum? Unbelievable.

    • I am also beautiful and talented. Let the cosmos draw us together…

      Wait what thread are you talking about? I just checked out her profile on SL and it says she’s posted there twice, and none are Nicky threads.

      Nicky’s profile is on yuku.com. Shocklines is on yuku but admins and owners of boards on there can’t do anything about what is on people’s global accounts. He also can’t react to PMs sent through Yuku. That of course is what he says…he owns that board and could ban someone for the color of their eyes and get away with it, that’s just the excuse he uses.

      And Darren is a good guy. I liek him.

    • Matt ought to set up his own alert system so that as soon as Nickypoo posts, he can race in to lock the thread before anyone replies. There might be a way to write a script that would do it for him, if Yuku allows that level of admin access.

      It’s almost reached that stage, anyway, except that Matt likes to let them stick around until the “read” count is well into the hundreds before he does anything.

    • Holy shit Rusty you’re right! That thread was at 400+ views and had surpassed view counts of threads that had been there longer and about legit writing stuff. Makes sense now.

      Except not, because he isn’t running a business there anymore.

  15. “And, lo, on the third day, Christ leaked, for He hath been in the tomb without a toilet.”

    Sorry, folks. It had to be done.

    You may now return to your regular programming.

    • “And the angels sang in joy to see the Master thus relieved, and there was much rejoicing, save for the troll upon whom the Savior had blessed with his soilage. The troll understood not the blessing he had received. In his ignorance, he decried the Son of God as “a Fatherfucker” and ran away with great trembling and sobbing and clenching of his buttocks.”

    • Since we all know Nicky’s so deep in the closet he’s in fuckin’ Narnia… is anyone surprised he’s checking out young boys without their shirts? That’s our Nickolaus Albert Pacione in a nutshell.

  16. Oh and the latest entry in Nicky’s guestbook. Hehe!

    Comments: Hey man, I heard you’re no longer in charge of Lake Fossil Press. I am going to submit a story to the new owner but I was just wondering since you know the new owner well, could you put in a good word for me? I’d really like to get published! Thanks man!

    • lolseph

      M I think you’re plan worked: He’s on Shocklines right now, probably preparing another rant.

      He seems to get mad when people contact him nicely asking about the new owner.

    • lol Mike we already figured that out with less words.

      Although it’s interesting to remember that he does shit then accuses others of doing it (may have started when he was a child, letting farts and accusing other children) so his accusations of abuse are more proof he beat his poor wife.

      Women make him rage. It’s a matter of when, not if, he is arrested for assault and rape of some female eventually.

      Nicky is batty, Larry is a psycho.

  17. I’ve been talking with Sir Nix-a-snot, regarding submission guidelines and contracts.

    I’ve asked a couple of different times for just a sample of the contract and he is extremely close hold with regards to releasing them.

    • Unless someone has their entity registered as their doing-business-as name and all the paperwork is properly filed, then submitting a contract under that name is null and void right out of gate. Just saying.

    • Unfortunately, any contract Nicky might sign under the Lake Fossil Press name, although null and void, favors him, because he’ll have the story in hand, and any terms therein will be unenforceable. The damage has been done, and as we’ve seen, Nicky will still sell stories the author has pulled.

    • I don’t know if you can sue for a contract that never existed on a work with an unregistered entity. That’s a little deeper into law than I’ve ever looked. But I would think there’s got to be some legal recourse for someone who has their work used under the terms of a voided contract–rather, a contract that never existed because the fictitious name isn’t registered under a SSN. The only way the above would work, so far as I can see, is if Nicky drew a contract between his legal name and the legal name of the author.

    • Righhhhttt.
      She does that, and she gets to keep the kid.
      Sure!

      Either that is A COMPLETE LIE or merely an accusation he cannot prove. Could even be construed as slander.

    • You know I’m not sticking up for him or trying to garner him pity, but I just got out of a two year relationship a few months ago from someone who had anger issues. Everyone I knew said to get out, even some of her family lol but I thought to myself “she can’t help it, she’s in therapy trying” etc and the thought of leaving someone who is sick… then she started to get physical a few months before I broke it off.

      I wasn’t some wimp who was abused but it’s not a cakewalk for men to have that happen because if we fight back, we can do a lot of harm and it would look like we started it. Even holding their arms so they can’t hit you is tricky because they can point to the bruises there and make it look bad. In fact two of the three times she said right after she did it she would tell the police I was the abuser, not knowing I took measures seconds after she would do it to establish the truth. But if you have to do that, it’s not worth it.

      I’m not saying he’s telling the truth there, but these days when a man (I said man not him) says that I tend to believe him.

    • She has an order of protection on him registered with the state of New York that I found. Those are hard to get these days. So there must have been some serious evidence.

      We do know that Larry, as evidenced by his posts, has issues with women.

      I found it very hard to hit back during the early days of my marriage because I knew I would demolish Hank/Jean if I let go. But eventually I had to put a stop to him hitting me and demolished him — repeatedly.

      That then allowed him to claim to our daughter that I was the abusive one, even though I always warned him not to hit me and he had to have known what was coming when he did.

    • Given all the lies he’s told over the years, and the stunts he’s pulled, I’m not inclined to believe anything he says.

      Let’s remember, Christine was his meal ticket. If her job was outsourced, I can understand the financial situation getting a bit tense.

      I have my son 8 days a month, alternate weekends.

      How does that work? Most national holiday weekends are only three days long.

      Compare that “poor me” whine to his blog post from a few weeks ago. Notice there was not a word about any abuse until after he lost custody, and he basically went in there knowing he wouldn’t get it. I’m not sure he wanted custody, anyway, because that’s a lot more week than a weekend play date.

    • He did say:

      I’m in the trial period of Family Court . . .

      I’m curious to know when that’s over, and whether the judge is considering cutting it down, if Lorenzo’s not on his absolute best behavior.

    • “She has an order of protection on him registered with the state of New York that I found. Those are hard to get these days. So there must have been some serious evidence.”

      DANG go Janrae!

      I’ve always suspected his problem with women seeing as how he went after you and Rusty more than anyone else, and ONLY threatened you two off the net (not counting ValentineVegan’s threats against Nicky) and never threatened me or any other anti-Nitwit that goofed on him.

      Like I said before, I had an alt on SL that was making him look bad and he messaged me with “helps to have cops as friends” and inside was what he thought was Rusty’s home address. So, he thought I was a woman, and in order to silence someone he thought was a woman, tried to scare me into silence. Sucks for him that I put certain differences aside sometime ago specifically to help protect Rusty and Janrae, so if he tries to intimidate either again, he has me and mine on his ass.

    • Hmmmm… let’s analyze this situation…

      Fact: Dagstine is known to be a liar — even when the most blatant of facts easily contradict him.
      Fact: Dagstine has a reputation for accusing other people of doing things that he’s been caught doing himself.
      Fact: Under the moniker of ValentineVegen, Dagstine abused and threatened Nickolaus Pacione, and he continues to do this when his own efforts to publicize himself doesn’t get him the “ooohs” and “aaaahs” he craves.
      Fact: He preys on people that he perceives as weaker than he, and 99% of the time that’s women.
      Fact: In one of his freebie stories on his website, his Mary-Sue protagonist murders his own daughter.
      Fact: Dagstine’s ex-wife files for — and gets — an order of protection from him.

      I think it’s safe to hypothesize that Dagstine may have been the abusive part of that couple. I also think it’s safe to hypothesize that he may have abused his son based on that last fact and how the custody arrangement ended up.

      This is, of course, speculation based on what is known at this time…

    • Exactly, Mike. I suspect he’s making things up to get an in on TTA forum. No one pays him attention otherwise.

      As Rusty reminds us, he’s not above using anything to get sympathy.

    • “He only menaces women.”

      I wonder if it’s just because he perceives women are weaker (he is after all, a coward) or if he’s one of those that has an unhealthy hatred of all women?

      I personally can vouche that he has a bully mentality from that PM he sent me when he thought I was a female. Rather than counter my goofing on him via the board, or ignoring it, he got so angry over it he tried to have me silenced and tried using fear of him coming over to do it. Of course he has never tried to bully me personally and is smart enough to never try.

      It’s safe to say he takes things said about him online deeply and even though he plays it off like he doesn’t care, there is too much evidence he does. After all, when Janrae first talked about him on her blog we saw how he was desperate to get on our good side and what he’d do to get it (throw his friend under the bus) and when that failed he resorted to threats.

      Ever notice how he threatens us with police, and not just police, his “personal friends” on the force, if he’s being goofed on over at SL? I seriously believe this site and this comment section specifically probably have him enraged.

    • Yep Victor mine had major self-esteem issues as well. Jealousy can be flattering in small doses, plus there was a lot of other shit she did that was usually connected to that somehow.

    • Yes, it does.

      The two times I laid a hand on my ex, was to try to stop her from hurting me or herself. What saved me was that one the first occassion she ended up in the psych ward for three days after her suicide attempt. The second time she left marks where she tried to strangle me and I had a couple cuts from the knife when she tried to stab me.

      I understand why it’s so hard for guys to talk about it. You don’t want to be seen as a wimp or as an asshole. It’s a damned-if-you-do-damned-if-you-don’t kind of thing. Both times I filed the police report, they looked at me like I was the guilty party. Even my friends treated me differently afterward. Though they knew what she was like, the fact that I had to get physical with her bothered them.

  18. A couple of facebook status updates. This dufus is like a rabid squirrel high on PCP. He hops around on topics/ interests like beetface does.

    I actually heard his rendition of “I’m Afraid Of American” live but I became a fan after owning the second album. I bought the first one at their show with Mary Magdelin (the closing act mixed rave with metal, something I hontestly wasn’t ready for. The second album puts them up there with Iron Maiden, and I ask them how the hell are they going to follow it up.)

    (Peaches)
    Oh haahaa! I had that track playing ever since some asshole rushed me out of his store because I was looking for something for a character in a horror film.

    • Haha. Someone chased him out of his store because . . . Peaches was skulking around, looking like a menacing homeless dude. I can understand that.

  19. Peaches posted a slightly extended repeat of the deadline extension on his lakefossilpress.wordpress.com blog.

    ” I will not look at GLBT (I apologize in advance for saying this, I am a Christian afterall and it would go against my beliefs) entries for the anthology because I am not that publisher as much as the tool that hides behind Angry In Illinois likes to tout that he took it over. Well he doesn’t like when I am in the open about who the ownership is, and that is me. I will have a domain for the imprint some time in August, but don’t know where I want the domain hosted. I don’t want it to be a copout having a WordPress.com blog as the domain site because I want to be able to design the HTML on it.
    Also I think the people behind Flashing Swords are also trying to take part in this so called hostile takeover. All that the facless one would be is a book burner, and I am keeping would be contributors updated from the official blog of the imprint. “

    • Wait hold up

      “I apologize in advance for saying this”

      What’s this? The same Nicky who has sworn never to apologize for what he believes in or says, apologized for his anti-gay stance?!?!

      Question: Is he doing that because of his new friend Xerox-Sellout is gay? Or is it because Angry acts professional and he’s trying to show he can do the same?

    • I think he’s trying to parrot Angry’s professionalism, a case of monkey sees and tries to do…

      What have we unleashed upon the world?

  20. Man, he’s like a boring record.

    What I love is when he brags about his hand to hand fighting skills, when you just KNOW he’d get knocked out by a 12 year old prep school girl.

    I’d love to see him try out for the MMA, hearing him squeal like a stuck pig would be the funniest thing ever.

    And I love how he talks crap about how he was boxer in the Navy. Yeah, how much practice at boxing did he get, when he couldn’t finish Basic Training?

  21. Seeing as how Peaches blocked me from accessing one of his numerous story spewing profiles, I’ve had a few friends who wish to remain anonymous check in for me.

    Seems as though a bunch of his stories are bouncing to a relink : photo personals single gay male

    Oh the irony.

    Also, Nikki has started to branch out into Artists and Record Promotion. From Fashion Bombs facebook page

    I’m there guys — I have a CD of a band that I am promoting and a signed anthology waiting for you. I have two copies of Terraphobic and this is a heavy metal band in the vein of Iron Maiden and Dark Tranquility.

    I’m sure his new favorite band wants his crappy anthology, or even wants him showing up.

  22. Lake Fossil Press has a cult page on VF which was started today.

    Welcome to the official cult for Lake Fossil Press. Some people might have to domain but they do not have the heart and soul of the imprint. Lake Fossil Press been around six years and I plan to keep it going for another twenty. I never published alternative romance and refuse to start now. Lake Fossil Press publishes horror and modern day science fiction without sexual content.
    Posters who go around promoting the fake version of Lake Fossil Press will be banned in heart beat and will be reported for impersonating a member on VampireFreaks.com. Follow the rules of the website as well as the rules of the forum. I refuse to publish slash fiction so don’t even try posting that here. This cult is still under contruction and this will also be ground zero for the real Broken Mindframe Books imprint. IF you’re looking for the fake Tabloid Purposes by the fat sow, HorrorGal or the commie, PTaylor — you’re going to be disappointed.
    This cult is relatively new but if you want to learn more about the books and magazine that Lake Fossil Press is doing you can click here. If you’re looking for the fake domains — you’re not going to find them here. This is the real imprint helmed by Controversial Conservative Horror and Science Fiction author, Nickolaus A. Pacione. Also this is home for Broken Mindframe Books — not the domain that some fake bastard runs.

    • So has Nicky been deleting or blocking members in a fit of rage? If he wants a cult full of sycophants, he should just institute an application form. Of course, then nobody would ever join.

  23. I thought I just pasted this here, but apparently not. Anyway, Nicky just made a sale and is worried trolls might contact the publication and ruin it for him

    Contracts to sign…..
    June 18, 2010, 05:35:pm

    …and I need to find a good author picture for this magazine. It’s now official that Witch’s Party is accepted to Stephen W. Roberts’ magazine. I have to find a good picture to use and write an updated third person bio including the information with Writings From The Grave and being the owner of Lake Fossil Press. The fucker named “AngryInIllinois” put out the faux covers for DYERS EVE and Ethereal Gazette: Issue 11 (I am not amused.) I am guessing that he is running amuck on WritingForums.com while I have a one month ban.
    The other editors on the magazine loved the non-fiction storytelling on the story so I am going to be part of the magazine in July. I am not sure if this is a print or a e-zine type magazine. I’ve been part of Specficworld.com with Flying Cigars I got accepted there after a week from writing the story. Doyle actually e-mailed me saying “Good work. We’re going to feature you.” The featured fiction didn’t come out until 2008, but my story there had its run so it’s back in print on Lake Fossil Press.
    Now I am hoping none of the fucking trolls start harassing the magazine like they did with Sinster Tales. The Other Dark Place harassed the editors to the point where they let me out of the contract with Blood Contender that same year I was picked up for Diabolic Tales II, but I had no idea that I was going to be part of the anthology until a MySpace.com blog.
    This is my first sale with a contract to sign, usually when I got published it was by e-mail and a payment to paypal which this was the anniversary of when I first sold to Tales of the Talisman (the issue that I have the story in is available for a $2.00 download.) This isn’t quite the anniversary of when I got accepted to Reality Check: An Anthology Of Horror. I did updated bios for sending off to Tales of the Talisman, and the story I got accepted with was actually rejected for Withersin Magazine. Now I know how Val and the guys felt when they signed to Full Effect Records for their second album.
    I am planning to send a story I wrote to Zoetrope Magazine too, the one called JESUS FREAK might be something that would work for this. But I got the facebook message from Stephen Roberts telling me that Witch’s Party is basically in but I didn’t want to say anything yet because I wasn’t sure if it was official, but when he got harassed by Stephen N. Marshall (SNM Horror E-Zine.) I had this weird feeling that this acceptence is going to be a little payback to Marshall.
    This falls on the anniversary when I got accepted to Specficworld.com so the timing is good. Especially since I got Darkened Horizons: Issue 3 in the hands of Val to take with him on tour. I told him I wrote this story around the time I was getting ready for the second Gothicfest. I was the last author to sign on board this time around, the first one I was actually the first then the others jumped in the fray. I remember getting accepted for an anthology then the little brat decided ie was going to drop my story and he was having a fit about being cut from Tabloid Purposes IV — well I took his story out and it was in the middle of the book. He pulled this on another publisher too so that publisher and I were comparing notes about it.
    I was accepted for the first Withersin around Halloween 2006, and that was when I was supposed to promote House of Spiders 3 but I was hospitalized for acute bronchitis that turned into pneumonia. I couldn’t promote Tabloid Purposes 3 properly either so Gothicfest 2007 was the first time everyone saw Tabloid Purposes 3 and IV. 2008 I had to reboot the fourth book because some cunt didn’t like what she was paid (she signed the contract for the second book, so with her hissy fit I lost Tabloid 2 but Tabloid IV got new artwork and a name change for one of the writers. I changed the last name to her married name to reflect the release of her novel. I got thanked and mentioned in the bio of her novel!)
    Around the time of Gothicfest 2007 was when I got accepted to Darkend Horizons: Issue 3. I was hoping Jordan had the book ready for Gothicfest but it didn’t come out until Christmas without the ISBN but in 2008 it had an ISBN and available on Amazon.com. DH#3 is the one that has Kevin Lucia, Gabby Faust, Alex Rivera, Collin McGwire and I in the volume. There were shouts of protest to my story closing the book out and I used Ig’s picture of me holding one version of Tabloid IV on the Witching Hour of the first night.
    Now I am trying to see what I can do in getting the book out there more and seeing what Libraries I can donate the book too. When I got published with Naked Snake Press, I actually got on as a tradey (Misty calls this kind of submission a tradey meaning that’s when you send your submission for their submission.)
    It was back in February 2006 when Donna submitted her story for Tabloid Purposes 3, I was just getting settled in at the apartment in Justice and broke because all my disability money went to rent and bills. Right now I just have a lot of bills (namely the phone bill paying for two phone lines and the internet. I try to keep money in PayPal to pay for AOL, that’s not too bad. It’s until I can get Netzero fixed. I remember when Michelle took my Naked Snake Press money and used it ALL for groceries. I kept my Lulu royalties away from her when I was living at the apartment because that was what I used to get contributor copies to the local authors.)
    This is my first higher semi-professional sale. If someone asks me what level I write on, I openly tell them I am semi-professional. The semi-pro level is where you start getting your followings along with the small press level publications. But to see this story get accepted, it’s a sign to things to come. I am willing to try Weird Tales again but they are very HARD to break into. I was actually insulted by one of the former editors when they turned down Spectral Exile. It got picked up by a UK E-Zine but a shitload of people flamed the hell out of it, and one of those flamers is stealing characters and titles writing rip off stories on her shitty blog.
    The thing that makes her pitiful is that she’s fourty years old and hides behind not having a picture to flame someone. If you’re going to flame someone, at least have the balls to show your real picture. But going back to when getting accepted, finding the proper author picture is a bitch. Donna and I went through eight different pictures of me for Naked Snake Press. I am just curious at who else I am going to be published with in this magazine, I got stuck with the stigma of the alt romance authors and Alt. Horror Writers in Dark Gothic Resurrected, and I was billed as the only traditional horror writer in the magazine and the only non-fiction writer. I designed my author bio graphic using a picture that was taken of me sitting on the stairs of Rush University Medical Center.
    The brat that made the stink about me needing to be avoided found out that I was in the same issue as him. I make fun of him without any mercy and I became friends with another writer that was in the same anthology I was in with him. The brat used to run a publishing company around the time he submitted the story, and now he’s working with a publisher where the founder loves to hate my guts and one of the people designing the covers there actually owned a pirated copy of my fourth book.
    This was around the time when they did the witch hunt of me on a message board. It took me nearly four years to get the thread taken down because my company took a hit because of it. The fuckers that started the witch-hunt was around the time of 2006 when I actually told off a person who sent me a story that broke all the rules that Lake Fossil Press has. I guess he whined to P&E not liking my rejection letter from hell.

    Stephen W. Roberts appears to run his own radio show and magazine or anthology, anyway I think his email is tdfsradioshow.bookings@gmail.com

    • He should be more worried that social security finds out about the sale and it affects his payments for disability 😀

    • It’s probably not enough to affect his benefits. However, if they should find out about it elsewhere, he’ll catch hell and be investigated. If he is also receiving food stamps (and there is evidence that he is), that’s where he will get hit. They will automatically hit him across the board and reduce them.

    • Looks like this is another sub-pro “acceptance.” Like Dagswine, Nikki is claiming that you go for “semi-pro” markets to get your name out there, which is B.S. Just like everything else Nikki claims.

      Sorry Nikki, no break for you, just the same old fail. With quotes like this:

      “For me, it’s not about being the next Stephen King, but instead truly defining rather anybody will really want to be the next Stephen W. Roberts.”

      I seriously doubt the value of this market.

      (Oh and Roberts is 22. Going after the youngins’ still there Nikki?)

    • He gets foodstamps and is still broke all the time? Where is his money going? Oh that’s right, booze.

      “I am playing with an idea of doing a drug Gothic story where the characters are tormented by the demons of their addiction (this is in part based on my overdoing it with the alcohol when I was 18 years old. I was one month shy of going into U.S. Navy basic training, that in fact saved me from getting arrested for under age drinking. I was so drunk that I was hitting on the cop’s wife.)
      The friend I was visiting at the time was the one who I started going to church with in 1994. I am open about being hungover in church, and that was one of two times I overdide it with the liquor. The second time was in 1999 when I had six beers and I was first on seroquel. The six beers with the medication made it feel like it was 36.”

      One of his dislikes on his VF profile is when someone takes the last beer. I know it’s possible to drink regularly and not have a problem with it, but I still think he does.

    • “It got picked up by a UK E-Zine but a shitload of people flamed the hell out of it,”

      It came fifth from five in a competition you paid to enter back when not so many were involved, and it was rated badly by a lot of people, not flamed.

    • Sub-Pro is right Mike, they only pay for the top three submissions. Well unless they only publish three pieces an issue.

      “ALL are welcome and best of all we are a paying market! That is right, the best of the best will win a token prize! First place wins $50, second place wins $25 and third place wins $15.”

      So unless you submit a 1000 word or less piece that takes first place you’re getting less than five cents a word.

  24. Is this “Stephen W. Roberts’ magazine”?
    http://www.duotrope.com/market_4427.aspx

    “We want horror, we want the exotic, the schizophrenic, the nude, the undead, the surreal, the stomach-jerkers, and more. We are open themed. Make us think, or puke, surprise us with poetry and purple prose. Do it with flare, do not make us stare. The Dark Fiction Spotlight accepts all dark fiction and its sub-genres, as well as horrotica, extreme horror and LGBT.”

    Pacione certainly has the schizophrenic and “make us puke” angles covered.

    • “and LGBT”

      How ironic is it that just the other day he was stating his wish to physically assault Angry because he believes that since he’s taken over Lake Fossil Press ” He’s trying to turn it into a limp wristed ass pirate publication.”

      Someone should inform Stephen about Nicky’s pure hatred of homosexuality.

      lol “the faux covers for DYERS EVE and Ethereal Gazette: Issue 11 (I am not amused.)”

    • Talk about weak guidelines:

      “We are open themed.”

      That translates to, “we’ll publish anything.”

      “Make us think, or puke, surprise us with poetry and purple prose.”

      Purple prose is not a good thing for writing. Methinks this editor is…lacking.

      “Do it with flare, do not make us stare.”

      With poetry only a Vogon would love. And that’s ‘flair’ by the way.

      “The Dark Fiction Spotlight accepts all dark fiction and its sub-genres, as well as horrotica, extreme horror and LGBT.”

      LGBT? Don’t tell Nikki that…

    • Someone should submit Nicky’s heartfelt ode to killing gays with impunity thanks to his mental illness diagnosis.

  25. Nicky had two journal entries on VF today. Al posted the most recent one. Here is his other one:

    Stephen Roberts hasn’t announced it yet but I have this feeling this will be my first non-fiction in nearly 3 years. The last non-fiction acceptence was with Dark Gothic Resurrected but the issue was too much of a sausage party for me in terms of the stories in that one. I didn’t promote the Dark Gothic acceptence of the story (I promoted The Ethereal Gazette version. But damn I am eager waiting to find out if Witch’s Party is official yet. I don’t want to jump the motherfucking gun with this one.
    One thing that magazines like about me is that I can do a horror scare by writing non-fiction. This is what got me noticed with Withersin in 2006, but they didn’t release the Birth Issue until new years 2008. Witch’s Party isn’t quite Apt #2W but it’s the origin stories for what would become my brainchild Writings From The Grave, it’s not quite a Writings From The Grave story but GAME OVER is Vintage WRITINGS FROM THE GRAVE for the new decade.
    Yeah I am about 26,110 words into that one now, I am adding some sinister parts on this one. I am introducing a new name logo when I finish GAME OVER and release it in the second local issue. I extended the deadline of the magazine to mid-August so everyone has more time working on their stories. I got some jokers on here saying they read GAME OVER as a finished product well how could they have read the finished novella when I am still writing it.
    The fake “editor-in-chief” said to have “released” the cover for Ethereal Gazette: Issue 11 when I don’t even have the covers for that one yet. I am designing the cover for Issue 11 and trying to buy time for me to get the lady models to work with me on the cover and the cover for the character’s magazine cover.
    I noticed he was trying to turn the mag into something cutesy, fucker nice try dipshit. Ethereal Gazette: Issue 11 is going to have a punch behind it that many horror magazines won’t have and my entry in there is going to be the one that will have the most punch using a religious/anti-relgious feel at the same time. I am about to show the world that a Christian can do extreme horror with a murderous intellegence that entirely Chicago. GAME OVER is going to be the definative Nickolaus Pacione penned horror story while I sent BLOOD CONTENDER to Tales of the Talisman as a reprint from Diabolic Tales II. I was the dark horse entry in that anthology because that one has a lot of Satanic hued horror stories in there.
    My approach to horror gained the respect of Bob Morgan, Jr. (he actually praised THE FANDOM WRITER for it’s raw anger. I went back and revised The Fandom Writer twice, one of the edits is named for my first signature story of the 2000 decade. Witch’s Party will introduce the Nickolaus Pacione of 2010 and so will GAME OVER when it’s ready.) I extended the deadline on the magazine so the writers can really take their time telling the stories they want to tell. GAME OVER was inspired by the rivalries I had with other magazines over the years, most famously with a former friend’s magazine. That one was the wheels of revolution at work, the very spirit that drove me to create the Tabloid Purposes series — namely the first book. That 28 year old is co-writing with the 33/34 year old — the thing with GAME OVER the writing is more mature for me. It’s the story I wanted to write when I was 20 but didn’t have half the talent to do it.
    GAME OVER has some frantic death scenes while Witch’s Party relies more on the non-fiction storytelling. If I was to write about “Crazy Michelle’s” house warming it would have a similar vibe but her party had a lot of BDSM type shit going on, it weirded me out a little bit there and put that over being very sick at the party where I spent a lot of the party in bed. There are stories that I got published from the apartment sessions and I believe the stuff that got me published the most came from living in the apartment. One of her friends saw I got a lot darker at the apartment especially writing SPECTRAL EXILE (I can’t say the title without letting loose a Pantera type vocal.)
    I was being critical of the Chicago Gothic Scene politics when I wrote that story but I did it in a visceral horror style akin to my buddy John Edward Lawson (Raw Dog Screaming Press which almost became the publisher for House of Spiders 3. PublishAmerica were breathing down my neck too then but Naked Snake Press won them out. My going on the roster was the one that sparked the most contoversy too. The one that cost me my membership on the Horror Writers Association because of the famous smart ass remark to Angeline Hawkes for picking on Tabloid Purposes, “Just because you FUCK and SUCK the moderator that doesn’t mean that you should overstep your bounds.”)
    I became the subject of a lot of hatred by a lot of Rick R. Reed’s fans because I refused to add him on myspace.com and I was politely vocal about it. My room mate at the time, Shawn, saw this and laughed. He said, “Holy shit, only you can cause that much controversy by being polite and civil.” I think I caused the most controversy in 2005 when I publically urinated on TJ Crowley’s photograph and one of my contributors loaded it on her blog. But yeah I am working on something that is darker than my entire catalog and darker than John Everson’s catalog too. I am just waiting to hear the final word about Witch’s Party, and I heard that the editor of the magazine got harassed by Steven Marshall.
    So I am just waiting on the hype that is going around that particular story right now. There was a lot of hype in 2006 when Barb and I wrote House of Spiders 3 (some would ask who did all the writing on the novella. We wrote that one equally but I wrote a lot of the Cthulhu Mythos parts on that one. Barb had to go and read Bite of the Spider to get the feel of the unspoken narrator in terms of the video camera. I didn’t do this with GAME OVER, I wrote the story in terms of first, second and third person in parts.) I am going for my raw power of SPECTRAL when writing the novella, but I was going for the aspect that made DAMNATION OBSERVES what it is when writing Witch’s Party. I inflused some humor in that one because I was comparing myself to that party as “Ted Nugent at a feminist rally.”
    GAME OVER might not have the humor that The Fandom Writer carries but it’s got something that my earlier work has — heart. My newer work will show my side that I showed in 1997 on WBS.net, as in I am showing that I could be GothicPreacher once again. GOTHICPREACHER meets F8OfGod (F8OFGOD was my angriest period, and also my most evil.)
    I am writing evil material in GAME OVER and I did a balance of the two on a novella called “The Midnight Diner” which was named in the honor of the anthology that I read at Gothicfest 2007 cover to cover called Coach’s Midnight Diner: Jesus Vs. Chtulhu Edition. That book launched the career of Kevin Lucia but Darkened Horizons: Issue 3 bridged the gap between The Diner and Tabloid Purposes IV because Lucia and I appeared together in this one. There was the most backlash for my story in there by the ones stealing my catalog’s characters and using them to mock the shit out of me.
    When I wrote Spectral Exile, one of my contributors asked me when would I do a story that competes with the House of Spiders trilogy. Writing GAME OVER — I am writing as the Admisister of Adgitation. I am going to see how many people I can piss off with this one and at the same time it will deliver the hardcore horror scares of my early years. Witch’s Party captures the spirit of my 1996-era work. Spiral Torment was from 1996, but I would like to go back and rewrite that one to make it fit what I do now. It was written out of my philosophy papers, and I wish I had my college paper I wrote for my final in Philosophy because it would shock most of Intervarsity or University Bible Fellowship (I was doing Writings From The Grave out of the wake of the pressure from both to get me to give up horror all together, I told them they would never take that out of me.)
    I will say this much of Witch’s Party, it was turned down from Withersin out of 200 submissions but for it to make the shortlist on a new magazine coming out in July — I am excited to hear that it made the shortlist. It’s the second of my new stories to be known. They’re going to take my Nextcat.com profile picture (I used this picture with An Eye In Shadows 2008 reboot author photo and the editor photo for Tabloid Purposes: Book Five.) But I will say this much with the new material as a whole it’s darker and a lot more well read compared to the old stuff because of the book I read called Lucifer Detroned. I wanted the stories to be accessible to the Christian population without losing it’s secular edge.
    I always written for a secular crowd and that is something I will not alienate when I am writing the other stories. The inspiration for the new stories in the tone came from Melody Graves in the Diner with her story because it’s got the Gothic voice of my stories on Tabloid Purposes One (The Ferryman’s Wheelchair) and Tabloid Purposes IV (Passenger.)
    With the one former room mate giving his life to God, I am reminding him it’s still safe to hang on to the Gothicism and that is what I was trying to show him when I rebuilt Writings From The Grave. I didn’t forget about my Christian fanbase but I am just learning I have a Conservative fanbase too now because of my science fiction efforts. Cyber>Terror>Machine is my darkest Science Fiction story, but the one that launched me in the 2012 datebase is The Storms Of Armageddon (you can read that in the second collection.) With my science fiction it sometimes flirts with the Godzilla genre and sometimes with “Aliens Among Us” but my dominate style in science fiction is technology suriving mother nature’s wrath. CYBER>TERROR>MACHINE> will always be the centerpiece of the fifth Tabloid Purposes.
    The story that really showed a lot of my intense hate was Our World Is Fucked — that story is lost but that one ALMOST made Chimeraworld 3. It wasn’t Atheistic enough for Mike. Robert Montesino said the story was way too extreme for Speculative Fiction Centre. Put it like this with the newer stories I’ve written I am flirting more with Urban Fantasy with one story, Literary Fiction Going Into Gothic Horror, Gothic Horror, and even Non-fictional Gothic Horror. The stories that are Non-fiction Horror are APT 2W, The Pattern of Diagnosis, and Witch’s Party. Pattern of Diagnosis is the scariest of the three because it is dealing with a lot of my faultering health problems in second half of 2006 and not being able to get to a doctor. I had a doctor coming to the apartment in November of that year.
    I wish the person that reviewed the story didn’t call me an erotic author because I don’t do erotica in any form. I had played with dark humor in different forms “The Room Mate” is the one that has the shitload of Twilight Zone type humor. The story came out of a joke I made to a DJ that spun at Gothicfest 2007 and he mentioned he was staying with the ex room mate. I deal with a lot of shallow pieces of shit in the subculture, I felt like I was forced out of the subculture when I had the falling out with Scary Lady Sarah — it was when I challenged Carrie Monster to become a publisher. So that anger became part of the rewrite of An Eye In Shadows where I put a fat hairdresser into a SAW type scenario. The reason Carrie Monster can’t stand me is because I remind her where she comes from. I might have friends still in the Goth scene but I’ve been semi-removed on my own as in showing that I am home in the Chicago Metal scene more than anything now.
    With these new stories including Witch’s Party — my nickname as The Heavy Metal Author is cemented. I have to thank Mykil for coining me that at the show when I brought NR in to destroy the place. I wish I was able to get them to Reggie’s Rock Room. But yeah when it comes to doing the epic horror, I have never captured my darkest horror works in the epic style but I caught my most violent approach in House of Spiders 3. I am going for more buildups than what I am used to doing.

    Music: Fashion Bomb — Christ Puncher

    • Three things

      1) “SPECTRAL EXILE (I can’t say the title without letting loose a Pantera type vocal.)” so do the unfortunate souls who have read it because they are in pain.

      2) “So that anger became part of the rewrite of An Eye In Shadows where I put a fat hairdresser into a SAW type scenario.” Wait, isn’t that supposed to be non-fiction?

      3) Nicky’s new thing is to re-write history so that anything bad that has been said or done to him was because he did something to that person first. ie “The bastard did that parody of me because I ________” then it could be Nicky wouldn’t publish him, Nicky insulted him or someone else that person liked, etc. He lies so that no one has ever had an issue with his writing because it’s terrible, and no one has ever just disliked him because he’s an ass.

    • Nicky has many times referred to his non-fiction “stories,” thus proving he has no concept of what non-fiction means.

  26. Here is an email response from the kid who is paying for Nicky’s story.

    ———————————-
    Do know that i mean no disrespect to you and your cause when I tell you that I must politely decline to heed your warnings of Mr. Pacione. Nickolaus Pacione may have strong views on subjects that seem insensitive to others, but we all do as people. Thus was makes this country great, wouldn’t you agree? No? OK…

    Also, you expressed your views of his writing, but my editing staff felt rather differently when we all unanimously chose his story for our first issue at TDFS.

    I visited every single link you sent me and do know that you didn’t waste your time posting them for me, but I can’t rely on some silly forums and blogs to tell me who to like this week.

    I’ve been on speaking terms with Nick for quite a while and I like the guy, to be quite honest.

    Furthermore, I don’t appreciate the insult of asking “how could I publish Nickolaus Pacione?” You ask this question and in turn insult my merits as a writer/editor/ etc. “His writing if you attempt to read it is of very poor quality for starters?” This implies that my magazine is either illiterate or publishes any story that comes our way.

    I’m going to go ahead and dub you just another Poppy Z. Brite groupie who attacks people in the name of their idols. (Notice: I actually like and respect Poppy Z.

    I leave you with one final question: If Nick is the homophobic monster that you claim him to be, then why is it that every forum you presented to me is insulting Nick for being gay. Calling him, and I quote: “faggot” as to hurt him in some way. Maybe you all should look in the mirrors and decide if you’re the homophobes?

    • “This implies that my magazine is either illiterate or publishes any story that comes our way.”

      This email doesn’t imply anything. It confirms it.

    • Stephen Roberts is either a child or a scammer. Or both.

      He ignores the fact that most of us are either pros or working toward that with much greater effort and sincerity than Nicky.

      You’ll never see us using the term ‘faggot.’ That’s one of Nicky’s words.

      And what has Poppy got to do with it? I’m not a horror groupie. I like Poppy, but I don’t idolize her. I think the only author I ever idolized was Isaac Asimov.

  27. Wow, where to start on those two entries… A few thoughts:

    –He shouldn’t be touting GAME OVER as some wonderful new piece; it truly does suck just as much as anything else he has written. The “frantic death scenes” don’t exist. The deaths happen off-screen, so to speak, and the other characters just talk about them.

    –Yes, Spectral Exile was fifth out of five at Spinetinglers. It got rated very low, and Nicky was banned from that site (temporarily) for harassing the folks who rated it.

    –Someone should let Stephen Roberts know – in a polite way – just what Nicky is about so that he can make an informed decision about whether or not he want to have Nicky’s name associated with his e-zine.

    I need more coffee if I’m going to digest those entries further.

    • Why bother? If Roberts took something of Nikki’s, then it shows that he’s not all that as an editor. These days all anyone has to do is Google a name to find out more about the person, and I’m willing to bet Nikki’s made at least one scathing remark about his “enemies” in the course of submission and negotiation. That should have at least triggered a little warning alarm…

    • I have to agree with Mike. But I’m happy nonetheless to learn about publishers who publish Nitwits. That way, if I ever by some cruel twist of fate find myself in their company, I know to run screaming.

    • You guys are probably right. I can’t imagine anyone with a grain of publishing sense looking at Nicky’s writings and saying, “I’d consider publishing this.”

    • Exactly. If Roberts is inept enough to work with Nicky, then he deserves to see his publication fail, which it will, just like Naked Snake, the Shocklines store and anyone else Nicky has worked with in the past.

    • Jenny- I tried sending him a polite email warning him about Nicky. What I got back was disgusting. Don’t bother. I thought Brendan was being harsh, but he was spot on. If this goes into moderation again here I’ll paste it at your blog.

      Do know that i mean no disrespect to you and your cause when I tell you that I must politely decline to heed your warnings of Mr. Pacione. Nickolaus Pacione may have strong views on subjects that seem insensitive to others, but we all do as people. Thus was makes this country great, wouldn’t you agree? No? OK…

      Also, you expressed your views of his writing, but my editing staff felt rather differently when we all unanimously chose his story for our first issue at TDFS.

      I visited every single link you sent me and do know that you didn’t waste your time posting them for me, but I can’t rely on some silly forums and blogs to tell me who to like this week.

      I’ve been on speaking terms with Nick for quite a while and I like the guy, to be quite honest.

      Furthermore, I don’t appreciate the insult of asking “how could I publish Nickolaus Pacione?” You ask this question and in turn insult my merits as a writer/editor/ etc. “His writing if you attempt to read it is of very poor quality for starters?” This implies that my magazine is either illiterate or publishes any story that comes our way.

      I’m going to go ahead and dub you just another Poppy Z. Brite groupie who attacks people in the name of their idols. (Notice: I actually like and respect Poppy Z. Brite as an artist) The forums were silly at best and I got nothing but cheap laughs from them: especially the photoshopped gay photos at EncyclopediaDramatica…they’re too much, really.

      Mike was correct about this kid from the start. Notice how very sensitive and defensive he is regarding his “merits as a writer/editor/etc.”? Came out of nowhere for simply asking him why he would want to publish Nicky, and he got terribly defensive. That 15 yo girl Nicky tried to sucker into his world? When I contacted her she laughed and said she already suspected something was up with him, so this Stephen’s age isn’t an excuse for him. Nicky surely played off his ego, but still no excuse.

    • Well, I didn’t email the guy. Until just now, I didn’t even bother to check out anything about the twerp and his e-mag, or whatever the heck it is he runs. In the immortal words of Rhett Butler, “Frankly, I don’t give a damn.”

    • Oops, just checked my blog and someone left a comment on my latest entry:

      ————————————————————————

      here is an email response to that Stephen kid. Not worth trying to help, and uber defensive and offended because he thought I was doubting him as a writer and editor for simply asking how he could print Nicky, as if he’s already getting flack from grown-ups and actual real editors and publishers in the biz

    • The guy can’t even spell “addressing” correctly in his blog post title. That tells me as much as I care to know.

    • I checked his Myspace page, and he’s only 22 so I’ll cut him a little slack for for being defensive and naive. I still think his magazine is a place to avoid – no serious writer wants to have his or her name associated with Pacione in any way.

    • http://www.(hiding his url because he wants us to link to him)/tdfs-sits-down-with-the-best-selling-award-winning-author-andrea-dean-van-scoyoc

      >andrea-dean-van-scoyoc

      OH lol I haven’t heard that name since the odark days, when we were squeeing at the discovery of another Nitwit?

      I wonder if he’s in cahoots with Kristy Ta*coughcough*man

    • Yep, total Nitwit.

      I believe Mr. Roberts fails at understanding context — looking at some of Nikki’s anti-gay rants on his blog should have clued him in.

      And of course Nikki’s likeable as long as you praise his work. First bit of editorial criticism, and that relationship will deteriorate quickly.

      The “groupie” comment is typical Nitwit behavior as well. So is the “no, you’re a homophobe” bit.

      Yeah, he’s 22, but he’s too full of himself — another person who could benefit from “The Egoless Writer” but most likely scoff at it.

    • Knickers updated his forum topic about the acceptance.

      http://vampirefreaks.com/forum/comment.php?entry=547413

      “If you can read my journal entires from the friend’s journals then I haven’t made it official on the journals, but I am making it official on the thread. “Witch’s Party” will be published next month in the magazine that I made the shortlist for, the other editors told me they loved the non-fiction storytelling with this one (well this story published is a true story. It’s part of the origin of Writings From The Grave.)
      I also extended the deadlines for the local author edition of The Ethereal Gazette because everyone is still writing their stories for it. I am the publisher behind the notorious Lake Fossil Press and I am doing a double anthology for the sequels of Tabloid Purposes. What I am looking for book in book six is a Christian Darkness and the second book Athiest Apocalypse. The other project I am doing is for The AuthorsDen Foundation (a charity the guys of AuthorsDen started for young writers getting their work out there. The submission call is now when filled for DYERS EVE and no it’s not that one that a particular idiot is putting the mock covers up on.)”

      Of course I do like the one non-Nicky response in that thread.

      “I had a hat once.

      Those were good times. ”

      I want to know more about this hat.

    • “Yeah, he’s 22, but he’s too full of himself”

      Exactly, however I don’t think he’s as confident as he’s making it appear, I think he’s putting on airs. Look on a couple of his websites where he has links to his email addresses or myspace & facebook urls: All of them have “writer” in there somehow, like “Iamawriter@” or “.com/ImawriterIswearImnotaposeur”, plus how instantly upset he got at the thought of someone questioning him as an author and editor.

      I’m certain Nicky warned them ahead of time that trolls would arrive to spread lies, then spread his own lies. What that kid said about Poppy and “groupies”? Anyone that doesn’t see Nicky in that is dense, however his age doesn’t cover it. All over the net is evidence Nicky hates gays, in fact that kid completely ignored that part and tried to spin it by asking if we were homophobes.

    • The very first and the very last line (the last line especially) in Nicky’s reply to that thread rockets it to epic status

      “Hey shitmonkeys, quit hijacking the thread you pigs. Get the fucking hell out of my thread. If you fucks are going to do this shit go to random thoughts or The Lounge instead, not the Writer’s Corner thread. It pisses me of when you assholes come in a perfectly good thread and put your shit covered fingers on it. Jesus FUCKING Christ. This is a thread for acceptence/rejection letters only! Not a thread to showcase your fucking hats so get the hell out of my thread if you’re going to do that shit.
      So take your book burning asses out of here before I report you to the admins for trying to stir drama on a thread that is supposed to be an announcement for being accepted in a magazine. Why don’t you assholes take this shit to SomethingAwful.com or /4Chan/ where you can be assholes somewhere else. I will not let any of you jackholes steal my thunder here. Especially if there is other writers looking to get published, the magazine is looking for more writers but not you jackholes. I’ve seen what some of you tried to do with this editor and I am not going to let this happen.
      I’ve seen enough of this shit on the Lulu Horror forums in 2005-2006. So kindly get the hell off my thread if you’re going to talk about hats you infant raping sacks of fail. I am not about to let some random thought or The Lounge trolls shit on a perfectly good parade here. If you hate me, fine, take it off the forum. I am not going to let this turn into a flame war or a hijack where it’s off motherfucking topic! Especially when you jokers brag about getting “review copies” of unfinished stories or stories that were never meant to be released. The fucker doing that isn’t the owner of Lake Fossil Press, I saw the shitty “covers” of the publications that aren’t even done or ready for release yet. I am still waiting for submissions for one and all the contributors are still writing stories for the other. I am not some five foot three midget that some of you are passing me off as. So kindly take your mental midget mentalities out of this thread. Jesus Motherfucking Christ.”

  28. A couple of quick facebook updates:

    Looking for a good author photo to use with The Dark Fiction Spotlight and trying to do an updated 3rd Person Bio. Shit that can be a bitch.

    So far no one has taken him up on it.

    Shit — my first contract for a magazine to sign but no printer to print the thing off. I am now having to write an updated 3rd person bio and find a good picture of me for this. I am thinking the other photo that was taken of me before hosting the Neutral Red show or the one of me used on Nextcat.com.

    • I’ll save the banter between Pickles and Sarah for later, however did you all know Nikki moshes and almost lost his tongue?

      From Fashion Bomb’s facebook page:

      Nickolaus Pacione It’s a toss up on the new album between “The Vow” and “Technical Singularity” — I haven’t been knocked down moshing in a long time (last time that happened when Scott and KlaNk did Telltale Crime live. The circle pit had about 40 people going in one direction and I was trying to go against the circle. I had been knocked back about 20 feet and nearly severed my tongue.) “Technical Singularity” live is the circle pit track. “The Vow” is one that commands a lighter in certain parts (this is your arena track and puts you way above the bands you’ve been compared to before, but puts you there with Iron Maiden or Queensryche’s early stuff. The range reminds me of Geoff Tate.)

      On the first album — “AVARICE” and “CHRIST PUNCHER.” You captured the minds of every horror writer with AVARICE when we get pissed we actually say “Let’s Play God”

    • Holy shit. He’s so pathetic he finally makes a “sale” but can’t even print out a freakin’ contract to make it go through? A PUBLISHER who owns a PUBLISHING COMPANY who doesn’t own a printer?

    • Someone could buy a brand new laserjet for Nicky, give it to him with no strings attached, and he’d be bitching that it didn’t come with paper and an extra cartridge.

    • Agreed Rusty. When the Nick Cave trolling was happening (Nicky was asked officially to interview Nick Cave since they’d both be at the same event, eventually a press pack would be given to him to do his article that included Cave’s Playgirl nude dong pics) Nicky was hinting so massively hard for free CDs, claiming he lost his or they were stolen. When the trolls agreed to send him a copy of the new CD, no shit, Nicky was hitting them up for a new “boombox” of his which was also stolen/lost/broken.

  29. Awww, poor Nicky. He was really mad that people were talking about hats in that VF post that Lewis mentioned.

    • Er…you can delete my copypaste Rusty if needbe.

      Actually shouldn’t there be a new topic seeing as we’re almost at 200? Personally this is one of the funniest things I’ve seen him write in a long time I vote for it.

      >So kindly get the hell off my thread if you’re going to talk about hats you infant raping sacks of fail.

    • And the best part is that he linked to the forums where he wants people to talk about hats. He made the thread epic. That’s our Nicky!

    • Ya and towards the end he makes three references to Angry then out of nowhere, his height! I myself don’t use the Lord’s name in vain but I lol’d hard each time he did, because the last time I saw him do that, that often in a post, he was really irate.

      I went to check the profile of the guy who derailed it to see what deaththreat Nicky left, but comments are hidden. 🙁

  30. Jesus. 190 replies? No wonder I was having trouble finding the newer threaded comments. Yeah, I’ll start a new thread.
