To be accompanied by the sound of an old door creaking open…

Welcome, welcome, come on in!  I have to admit:  although I wasn’t planning it, the 13th seems a particularly apt day for the launch of this new blog/site.  Funny how life works out sometimes, isn’t it?  Have a seat; make yourself comfortable. 

If you know me, then you know that I’m a fiction writer whose work tends to be located at the darker end of the literary spectrum.  I’ve published two collections of stories long and short, The Wide, Carnivorous Sky and Other Monstrous Geographies and Mr. Gaunt and Other Uneasy Encounters, and one novel, House of Windows.  With Paul Tremblay, I’ve co-edited an anthology, Creatures:  Thirty Years of Monsters.  Currently, I have a new novel making the rounds of publishers, and stories forthcoming in a variety of venues.

Please, introduce yourself if I don’t know you, already.  I expect we’ll be discussing all manner of subjects in the weeks and months ahead:  fiction, of course, our own and that of others, and also film, no doubt, and music, and who knows what else?
