Joshi, 2013

Friends:  Among other interesting anecdotes in his April, 2013 blog entry, author and all-around authority on weird fiction, S.T. Joshi, made an announcement referencing my short story collection, Ghouljaw and Other Stories—“a solid volume,” writes Joshi, “of 14 shuddersome tales.”  The collection should be released through Hippocampus Press sometime next year.  Read more here:  S.T.’s blog.

Dorman 1Anticipating the forthcoming release of Something Wicked, Volume 2, South African author and editor Nerine Dorman recently posted an interview with me on her blog. Click on the image to the right to access the interview:

And from the GoodReads site, here’s a bit about Something Wicked, Volume 2:

Volume Two marks the official transition of Something Wicked from magazine to annual anthology, featuring 25 brand new stories by writers from South Africa and abroad; seasoned veterans and first-timers brought together in a single book containing tales of post-apocalyptic dystopias, alternate realities, far-future science fiction and good old-fashioned blood-chilling horror, edited and compiled by the doting godparents of South African genre fiction, Joe Vaz and Vianne Venter. / Let your mind wander across distant galaxies, down darkened alleys, and across oceans of floating cities and let Something Wicked be your guide. / Let the journey begin.

Dorman is a widely-published and eclectic writer.  Drop by one of her various creative nerve centers to read more:
