I was hugely flattered to hear that I was named as one of Giallo Julian’s Top 15 Indie Creators of 2022 on the Dread Central website this week, among a truly idiosyncratic selection of talented horror creatives.
The list includes filmmakers, directors, musicians, artists, comics creators, writers, actors and the uncategorisable Razor de Rockefeller.
I admit I do feel a little like someone’s grandad crashing the cool kids’ party, but Julian puts a nicer spin on it by saying, “I’m pretty sure no one on this list has been in the indie scene longer than Gary Spencer Millidge…”
He goes on to say that, “Millidge’s commitment to his passion is steadfast, inspiring to say the very least. Despite whatever hardships that came his way, he never quit and proceeds to push through to this very day,” and that the In Praise of Shadows video had brought Strangehaven “to the attention of a new generation of readers.”
