WFR#4 - Cover

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:



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.
