Cheap Thrills

To steal a line from Dolly Levi, “Money, if you’ll pardon the expression, is like manure. It’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around, encouraging young things to grow.” Here are some things you ought to be encouraging to grow this spring: Exiles is a collection of 26 short stories from a stellar group…

White Rabbit Hops

I’ve been a bit off kilter of late, but slowly catching up with things. Here are some links to places I have been flogging my latest book with all my puny might (have to work on that upper body strength). Guest Posts I’m over at Richard Godwin’s for a Quick Fire at the Slaugherhouse where…

Something Noir in the Air

I suspect that 2014 is going to have a distinctively noir feel: First, there’s still a chance to get stories by the DRUNK ON THE MOON crew for free! Hustle on over and pick up any Roman Dalton you’ve missed and of course, be sure to leave ratings and reviews (you’re getting them free, c’mon!…

Button Box and More

I am pleased as the proverbial punch to be part of this collection. Here’s the word on the recording: “Button Box” is a collection of 46 mixes constructed from elements taken from the Linear Obsessional album “Air Buttons” by Richard Sanderson (LOR046) “After releasing my album of melodeon and electronics improvisations, I decided to ask…

New Releases: It’s a Curse and Shapeshifters

Never rains but it pours, eh? No matter how I space out submissions and contracts, my publications always seem to come in a bunch, eh?
