Couple cool things

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 with my life anymore is read The Song of Ice and Fire. And I hope they never end.

Too, though, writing my own novel at the moment. The title keeps losing its vertical hold, though, fading back as something else. More on this later as well.
