Corpsemouth and the Return of Mr. Gaunt

The contracts have been signed, so I can announce that, later this year, Ross Lockhart’s Word Horde Press will be releasing my next collection of stories, Corpsemouth and Other Autobiographies, and will be re-releasing my first collection, Mr. Gaunt and Other Uneasy Encounters.

Corpsemouth will feature nine previously published stories and one new one, together with story notes and an introduction by Sarah Langan.

Mr. Gaunt will be newly copyedited and will also feature a new story.

Both books will have covers by the terrific Matthew Jaffe.

I’ll pass along more information as I have it.

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:

Hyphae”

If you’d like to preorder a copy from Word Horde, it would be much appreciated.  As we did with The Fisherman, I’ll be signing (and illustrating!) bookplates for the Word Horde orders.
