Also while going through my video files, I came across several that my older son, Nick, had shot with David and me during a visit several years ago, with the aim, as I recall, of assembling a book trailer for my second collection, The Wide, Carnivorous Sky and Other Monstrous Geographies. I decided to stitch them together, add a bit of public domain music (“Traveler’s Journey” by David Rafael Krux), and here it is. (Nick made a previous trailer for my first novel, House of Windows, as well as one for Laird Barron’s stories.)
Today is the official publication day of the new edition of my first novel, House of Windows. This version comes with a new introduction by the brilliant Adam Nevill, an afterword on the writing of the novel, a reading group guide, and suggestions for further reading. (I had intended to include a new story with the novel, but as I was writing it, it decided it wanted to be a novella. *sigh* So what I’m tentatively calling “The Banshee” will be arriving a bit later than I’d planned.) Thanks very much to Jaime Levine and all the fine folks at Diversion books for giving my novel a second life.
