Mixer Publishing‘s letting me run all the tabs/genres this issue. Featuring a cool introduction by Brian Evenson. Seven stories in seven days, complete with story notes and an afterword.
ten in the morning, just after comic book class: and. the close-up: and, will be something different tonight, I suspect. Jason Voorhees, Ghostface, a horse-head dude, I don’t know. I do know this night’s never long enough.
Hey, Growing Up Dead in Texas is an LA Times Beach Read. And also all around. And Goodreads reviews are coming in — thank you, readers, talkers, passers-on. Bob Pastorella‘s writing about it from Texas. Amazon reviews are coming in. And, for the first time the other day, I saw it live in the wild (shipped direct from the printer to Mystery Bookstore): And, the launch party‘s June 12th, 7:30, at: Stories BooksandCafe 1716 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

New story up at DIN, “Secret Maps” (they’re the best kind). More stories soon, too, in excellentcool places. June will be all linky. “The Ones Who Got Away” made it on/to EWN’s Short Story Month. My weird flowhcart at Weird Fiction Review is all BoingBoing‘d up, thanks to Cory Doctorow. And I made Ann and Jeff Vandermeer’s top 13 weirdest stories of the century, over at The Huffington Post. Growing Up Dead in Texas is e-vailable, at least on Amazon. Paper copies June 12th (plural on copies because you’ll want a clutch of them of course, and then some more just to wing at birds). Tour schedule’s stacking up for it, too. California, Oregon, Washington, Texas, Kansas, Massachusetts maybe, New York. I think the schedule’s going to be posted at MP. Or maybe it already is. And, launch party: 13 June, 7:30pm Stories BooksandCafe 1716 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026 RSVP at the Facebook event, if you want. Or just show up in a bathrobe with your hair going every which way, a martini glass in-hand, your eyes focused on some distance the rest of don’t have access to. And, I put the Growing Up Dead in Texas blurbs up on its page, here. Joe R. Lansdale, Lidia Yuknavitch, and Craig Clevenger. Kind of a dream team, or at least who I want on my side should the zombies come knocking and moaning. Also, many book contracts in the works right now. More on that later. Also also: the only thing I want to do . . . → → →
New interview’s live up at Curiouser and Curiouser. New story, “Dedication,” up at Smokelong. It’s the first story for Short Story Month, too. So cool. “Why I Write” is live at Stymie. I lucked onto Adam Cesares’ Daily Grindhouse list. Couple more places got ahold of Zombie Bake-Off in the most wonderful way: Booked Podcast and Chizine‘s Chioroscuro. And, another interview’s live on Monday. Or, in a mag — but maybe live. And cool. And secret for now. And, Growing Up Dead in Texas: e-book’s out on the 12th, here. Paper a month after that.
by Matt Falvey, Jesse Wichterman, and Kathryn Soverane. and it’s got its own facebook page now. Novel’s out in paper June 12th, in digital all around May 12. Eagerly awaiting. Nervously awaiting. Excitedly waiting. Waiting with far too many adverbs.
My interview there’s live. “Demons and Donuts.” Also, should the sun turn up dead one of these mornings, I think they’re going to very quietly change the name of their magazine. There’ll be mass hysteria, a big funeral, all that, so I think they’ll be able to get away with it.
Just calling this post that because of the season. And because of course I love Hellbunny. Anyway, I never did a write-up for how cool World Horror in Salt Lake City was. Got to meet Robert McCammon and have him sign my Boy’s Life (to my son), got see Ellen Datlow some more, got to hang out with Joe Lansdale again, and meet Karen, got to watch a movie Adam Blomquist had with him (The Blood on Satan’s Claw), got to meet Jonathan Martin (of “An Evening with My Comatose Mother“), got to hang out with Orrin Grey again (first time since last WHC, but I think we’ll see each other again at Readercon), got to have to strange, strange experience of sitting at a table alone in a restaurant, reading a book quite happily, then looking over the top of that book and seeing the guy who wrote it standing across the room. Michael Rowe, Enter, Night, which I can’t recommend enough. Then at the Stoker Awards, got to hear Alan Moore’s acceptance speech read (by Scott Edelman and Rocky Wood) and see Richard Matheson on video, accepting for Best Vampire Novel of the Century: So cool. Also, talking cons, I’m at Starfest here shortly. And, check this guest list: could there by anything cooler than being in a list with Dee Wallace? And maybe I’ll run into John Noble or Jonathan Frakes in the con suite. And then just not be able to say anything. And I think I’m on a DigiFest panel or two . . . → → →
