Spirits Gather

As the Mummers begin their revels, St George fights the Dragon, or the Galoshins begin the games, we begin a time of reflection for change in the new year. It’s a time for taking stock, making decisions — and who am I kidding? It’s a time for mellow quiet, good food, and peaceful recharging. There…

Spooky Day!

I’m knee deep in a writing project with a deadline tomorrow but! Halloween brings out the goodies from me and my pals: A new story! Number 13 is a little M. R. James, a touch of Chaucer and a whole lot noir over at Punk Noir Magazine, where they’ve also got Sebnem Sanders’ The Muse and Frank…

Bantz with the Foxes 2 & Hire Idiots on Tour!

More bantz with our Foxy overlords who contemplate whether there really is a difference between a small press and a cult. JOIN THE SKULK! Also the latest Fox Spirit release HIRE IDIOTS is on tour. It’s an hilarious cozy mystery set on a college campus.

Bantz with the Foxes

New from Fox Spirit Books: the comedy stylings of Adele and Tom AKA Aunty Fox and Mr Fox offering a glimpse behind the scenes of an award-winning small press. Or something like that 😉 scripted by me but of course based on real conversations (perhaps exaggerated slightly).

10 Ways to Wear it Like a Surrealist!

Over at the Fox Spirit blog, I have a piece up on how to dress like a surrealist. Red is dead, blue is through, Green’s obscene, brown’s taboo. And there is not the slightest excuse for plum or puce — or chartreuse. ‘Think Pink’ from Funny Face (lyrics by Leonard Gershe) Looking for that quel-que chose for your summer or fall…

Sign up for the Newsletter!

‘Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.’ Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr Ah, so it comes around again: newsletters. With drastic changes coming to Farcebook, it looks like they will be pushing all activity into groups (probably so they can push the administrative work of moderation onto unpaid volunteers and pretend that the problem is therefore…

Out Now: Urban Wyrd

Apparently it’s National Writing Day, so here’s a timely notice that some of my writing is now in print — well, an interview at least (there’s plenty of my writing to be found). It was a great opportunity to talk about how awesome Fox Spirit Books and Weird Noir are. Here’s the bumper two volume…
