I’m honored to announce that I’ll be participating in the Arcade Asylum Author Series, Krampusnacht, 2018 edition, hosted by the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council and NecronomiCon Providence. “In celebration of the longer, darker, colder nights,” writes the organizer, “we’re thrilled to welcome several exciting voices in weird and dark fiction.” Indeed, I have some formidable associates, as my fellow readers include Adam Golaski, Julie C. Day, Sheri Sebastian-Gabriel, Barry Lee Dejasu, and Larissa Glasser.
So, if you happen to be in the Providence, R.I. vicinity on Saturday December 1, I’d be keyed to meet you (particularly if we’ve been acquainted in the virtual realms but have never had a face-to-face encounter).
This free event runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council. It’s open to the public, but seating is limited.
Friends: just dropping by to change the sign on the ye olde billboard blog, announcing the release of Weird Fiction Review #4, edited by the estimable S.T. Joshi. Here’s what Centipede Press has to say:
The Weird Fiction Review is an annual periodical devoted to the study of weird and supernatural fiction. It is edited by S.T. Joshi. This fourth issue contains fiction, poetry, and reviews from leading writers and promising newcomers. It features original stories and essays by J. C. Hemphill, Donald Tyson, Mark Fuller Dillon, Ann K. Schwader, Michael Washburn, James Goho; a lengthy interview with Patrick McGrath; an 8-page full-color gallery of art by Bob Eggleton; regular columns by Danel Olson and John Pelan and much more.
If you come by a copy, check out my story, “The Tell-Tale Offal,” a lurid little ditty about the squalid rivalries of young cooks. As mentioned, this installment features a bevy of striking illustrations by Bob Eggleton. Here’s a peak at the table of contents:
