Part 1’s live today. Other parts coming around every Saturday for a bit here.
Really, I think I have a stash of pics from another Mongrels thing, but now I can’t remember where. But I know I have these two anyway, as they’re from the last couple days.
First was up in Fort Collins, with HEX-author Thomas Olde Heuvelt. And, Olde’s not a middle name, that’s just the first part of his last name. He’s a cool dude, smart guy, excellent horror writer.
The trick with this, the eleventh installment of these, it’s figuring how to list the first ten in a way I haven’t done before. Last time I used Def Leppard. Can’t remember what happened before that. Let’s see, let’s see—I know. How about:
Also? I could have written a novella in the time it took me to stack all that up. Worth it, though. I dig how it looks.
I dig how this looks, too:
Was supposed to be just, you know, fun. But then the news services got hold of it:

Always dig being there. I mean, I know so many people there, it’s a lot like coming home. And—should have taken a picture—always cool to see my older books faced-out on the shelves, of course:
Anyway—remember how, in DC, I had the kind of maximum amount of knife-drama, getting into the building? For this book event, that is, the book event RIGHT DOWN THE ROAD FROM MY HOUSE, well: there was some truck drama:
Remember how in Mötley Crüe’s “Home Sweet Home” video, there’s all these slow-motion, black and white scenes from before and after and during the concert, the tour, this life on the road? That’s what Billy Stratton’s snapshot of Richard and Kadrey last night at Tattered Cover reminds me of:
What’s especially cool about that? For once I actually even pulled my OWN phone out, and snapped a picture of the audience, for the exact reverse shot:
Happening just after it does on this side of the water. Also: these are the first final copies I’ve seen. Very exciting.
In post-production right now. I got to swing out to Hollywood for a bit of the shooting, too. So cool to watch it all coming together.
