Interviews!

Lately, I’ve had the pleasure of being interviewed for several podcasts, the first couple of which have been posted.  If you have a little time, perhaps you’d like to listen to them.

First up, I talk to the Humming Fools (their name, not mine).  The focus of their podcast is on creativity, which they approach in a very funny way.  They’re also in the process of creating a horror comic based on fictional versions of themselves (at least, I assume they’re fictional).  The first two issues are up on their site, and I have to tell you, I enjoyed the heck out of them, and was sorry the third wasn’t done yet.

This is the image the Fools (specifically, Noah Baslé) came up with for my show with them.  Holy cow, do I love this, and wish it were on a t-shirt.  Or a huge poster.  Or painted on my house.  Good job, Noah!

Second is a conversation with Curtis Lawson for his Wyrd Transmissions podcast.  Curtis is the author of a very cool novel, Black Heart Boys’ Choir, and we had a terrific conversation about writing horror fiction.

This the logo for Curtis’s podcast.  It’s nice to see that monsters love to read, too.

Children of the Fang!

My goodness, it’s been a while since I visited this space, hasn’t it?  Sorry for all the dust, but I’ll probably let the spiders stay.

Here’s some good news to start:  this August, my fourth collection of stories, Children of the Fang and Other Genealogies, will be published by Word Horde Press!  Here’s a look at the beautiful cover the brilliant Matthew Jaffe came up with for it:

Klimt meets Frazetta!

Stephen Graham Jones provided a very kind and generous introduction that made me feel I was a much smarter writer than I am.

This is a big book,  modeled after collections like King’s Skeleton Crew and Barker’s Books of Blood.  Here’s the Table of Contents:

Sweetums” 

Hyphae”
