In my mind, the hour-long discussion with Gordon simply screamed by, but I was able to touch on several substantive points and extend some major props to several extraordinary supportive colleagues. And a massive note of gratitude to Gordon B. White, The Outer Dark‘s Anya Martin and Scott Nicolay, as well as the influential platform of This Is Horror for providing a such a venerable venue, to discuss (among other topics) my latest collection, The Skeleton Melodies (Hippocampus Press).
Heading into an extended weekend, received an encouraging endorsement from the inimitable Mike Davis with the Lovecraft eZine. Mike has a keen calibration on the contemporary pulse of fiction, which makes his shoutout even more gratifying:
“Only a few stories in,” wrote Mike, “but so far The Skeleton Melodies…is fantastic.” He goes on to mention some of my own literary heroes (Klein, Langan, Barron) who supplied some (inconceivably) generous sentiments.
In truth, the pride I possess for this collection is eclipsed by my gratitude and obligation to those who contributed a sentiment to the stories in this book:
Adam Golaski (who penned the Introduction, “The Profane Articulation of Truth”), author of Worse Than Myself
