Cemetery Dance stories

Another one coming out there, one of my favorite stories of any I’ve ever written. so, to sum up the forthcoming Cemetery Dance stuff:

  • “Raphael,” in #55 (right about to be out–might be out exactly when DEMON THEORY is, really)
  • “Hell on the Homefront Too,” sometime later
  • “Father, Son, Holy Rabbit,” some other time.

very cool mag, and very cool press, too.…

Upcoming & Current

  • another story in Cemetery Dance. a zombie-piece. too, if you don’t subscribe to their newsletter, I’d recommend it. if you’re into horror, I mean. lots of the bargains/sales they’re always doing, then intervws and reviews and all that good stuff.
  • an interview on Misnomer. looking like it’ll post there tomorrow. was a blast to do, and hopefully I didn’t say anything too terrible.
  • too, the first review of DEMON THEORY‘s out, in

Demon Theory sneaks

Just realized we’re T-minus four weeks on Demon Theory. Usually by now galleys/ARCs would have been floating around, but, gremlins being what they are, we’re holding our breaths for the final copies instead. Which might make it all cooler, even.

Still, though, I feel kind of bad about not giving any sneak peaks.

So–and yeah, this may get pulled, as I’m kind of doing it without permission–here’s twenty or thirty of the first pages of DE

The Man Who Would Cross Time.

Juked just pasted it up on their very cool walls.

( as for my feelings for time-travel, I think there’s a thread somewhere on the Velvet already. to sum it up here, though: it’s a hard call for me, between time travel and werewolves. and that’s saying more than a lot )…

Demon Theory update / thanks

I touched Demon Theory for the final time last Monday, at about six minutes shy of seven in the morning. It’s maybe at the printer’s now. Still an April 13th release, as far as I know. But yeah, people keep asking for galleys, ARCs. The story of that: all the formatting explosions Demon Theory started (typical software and 2006 processor speeds can’t contain the thing it is) kept pushing ARCs back more and more, until it was pretty much too late to mess with the…

Some more upcoming

  • A piece I read at AWP, “Lunch,” 32 Poems picked it up. they ran that little “Hansom Is” piece, that used to be posted as a sample on the old site.
  • A long / nother science fiction story, “The Man Who Would Cross Time,” Juked just picked it up. They’re the place that ran that “Zombie Sharks with Metal Teeth” story. Cool place.

These just out

“The Wages: an Argument” is out now in the current CONTROLLED BURN. also in there’s a BLEED INTO ME review, which kind of just sums up why I even ever wrote the book, and a little five-question interview. kind of like Kilbourne used to do when the Daily Show was his.

“Adultery: a Failing Sestina” is reprinted in BEHIND THE SHORT STORY, by Todd Pierce and Ryan G. Van Cleave. Though I’ve yet to read the essay-thing I wrote about revision, if I u…

The Minotaur at the End of Love

hey, because somebody over at the Velvet asked for it, I dug up an old story I’d wholly forgotten about, sucked it into flash, put it in that little story list to the left, here. I remember writing all these, this ‘office’ series of stories. ‘Amateur Hour’ was in there, as was that ‘Jumpers,’ still forthcoming. seems there were some more, too–‘Doesn’t Play Well With Other Children,’ I recall very clea…

Austin schedule

first, the whole event: AWP Conference.

next, my part:

  • Thursday March 9th, 10:00 – 10:45: a booksigning for Bleed Into Me. I’d guess this’ll be at the University of Nebraska Press table in whatever big room’s got all the tables/journals/etc.
  • Thursday, March 9th, 12:00 – 1:15: a panel (“A Reading by the Faculty of Texas Tech”). not sure if it’s posted yet which room this’ll happen in, but there’ll be schedul
