It was a grueling day at work, Thursday, with a day spent at a company meeting where the dreaded words, “We’re going to be doing some restructuring” came into play. While most of my co-workers went into a panic, I chose to remain calm and optimistic. This is a definite year for “change” so far as my life is concerned but, rather than look it as a challenge I am choosing to see these upheavals as opportunities to grow and reach new heights. Needless to say, I can’t describe how happy I was when I came home and saw a box had arrived with “Rondo Awards” listed in the return address.
It’s hard to believe that it has been a year already since David Albaugh and Dave Fuentes teamed up to create Terror From Beyond The Daves. When we met we instantly clicked, finding so many things in common. It was a natural progression for us to take our passions and share them with all of you! This past year has been nothing short of amazing!
Not only did we prove that we have one of the best friendships ever, we have met so many new and exciting friends! This site has opened so many doors for us and we haven’t looked back once. Of course we couldn’t have done this without the support of all of the great horror hosts out there! Hanging out with all of you at HorrorHound Weekend in March of this year was a dream come true for both of us and we look forward to doing it again really soon! We also want to thank all of the convention promoters who have been so kind to us, letting us do our job to promote their shows in the best possible way. Lastly we want to thank everyone who has been a part of the site, whether as a guest blogger, a contributing artist (that’s right Brian Maze…we mean YOU!) or just a fan who visits us on occasion, you are all what helps make this site the success it has become!
We have big plans for the next year and we want all of you to be a part of it so stay tuned and celebrate with us!

During the course of my research, I stumbled (Cue Svengoolie sound effect: “Ow, ow, OW!”) across Terror From Beyond the Daves via Svengoolie’s blog. I was immediately struck (“OOOW!”) by how informative, varied, and, of course, just plain entertaining it was. I also enjoyed how it was written by two fans of horror and horror hosts. Before I knew it, I was reading it on a pretty regular basis. Then, I suddenly found myself digging around back into the blog’s archives to read the articles that I had missed, and to reread some that were particularly helpful or fun. It was through Terror From Beyond the Daves that I not only discovered more horror hosts (like Wolfman Mac), but also expanded upon my knowledge of the ones I already knew about. I pondered for months about whether or not I should send out an e-mail to one or both of The Daves. As it turns out, I wouldn’t have to.
David A. here. Welcome to the final chapter of an excellent series of blogs started by Dave F. on his visit to my home state of Rhode Island this past October. I am a New Englander through and through…always have been, always will be. What is not to love? The summers are warm and beautiful and the winters are tolerable. We have some of the best fall foliage ever seen and we also have some of the best “true” vampire stories in the world! We also have Salem. Salem, best known for its witch trials of 1692, is a place I always wanted to visit but never did. My problem is that I’m not a big fan of road trips, especially by myself and the majority of my New England friends do not share the same interests and enthusiasm for these types of things.
