Three Movies, One (-ish) Book

Or, “What I did with my yesterday,” yeah.

Book: PARKER: THE HUNTER. Pretty fun; very straightforward, and cool art. Though, the night before I was up until two or three in the morning, unable to look away from the second volume of SCALPED, “Casino Boogie.” I’ve always thought that SANDMAN or Y THE LAST MAN were far and away my favorite series ever — guess Y feels more ‘series’-ish — but, I don’t know. Completel…

Another Good Day

Looks like that “The Ones Who Away” story of mine’s going in Paula Guran’s soon-here THE YEAR’S BEST DARK FANTASY AND HORROR. Too, I think the version going in that’s the one I re-rigged for THE ONES THAT ALMOST GOT AWAY, my October/Prime collection. …

Shirley Jackson Awards

So, these judges, they were all huddled together over pizza and beer, and they got to daring each other this and that (I hear there’s pics), and it finally came down to seeing if they could slip a clown into the novelette category, strictly for fun, because who could win again Stephen King and Laird Barron, right?

Anyway, will be my second time to be a finalist here, which is honor enough, really. See all the finalists here (including — twiceBrian Evenson).

8:00pm Friday night, that triple feature. The poster’s down below here, or bigger in my “etc” photo album. I’m introducing, in this order, DEAD AND BURIED, THE KEEP, and THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS (also: lots of cool trailers). am more than likely going to get some zombie facepaint, too. just because when it’s around, that’s kind of what I do. often even when it’s not aro…

Denver next week

In case anybody needs me next/AWP week, these are the places I definitely plan on being, though of course I’ll be trolling the bookfair for swag as well, and haunting lobbies, and skulking around busstops, and generally making a nuisance of myself in various restaurants. And, no, I don’t know where any of these places are yet. But I’m sure they’re real, or at least real-ish, which is good enough for me.


Byronic Vampires and Melancholy Green M…

The Weird

Anybody catch that “Little Lambs” story of mine IRON HORSE ran a few months ago? One of my favorites ever. Looks like it’s coming out again in November, in Ann and Jeff Vandermeer’s THE WEIRD:A COMPENDIUM OF STRANGE AND DARK FICTIONS. Couldn’t be happier about that.…
