Clev Con

I’m pleased to announce I’ll be a guest at Cleveland ConCoction 2015 at the Sheraton at Cleveland Airport. Cleveland ConCoction is Sci-Fi, Gaming and Fantasy based, but it’s been three years since the last time I attended a convention, so I thought it would be fun to get back out there.

DININ_store copyDININ_sig page

The Acorn Bookstore in Columbus, Ohio is a 22-year-old brick n’ mortar general secondhand/antiquarian bookshop. They have everything from inexpensive paperbacks to collectable books worth thousands of dollars. They have about 50,000 books in
their two-floor store.

Yvonne at Acorn recently sent me the above photos of DININ’. This is my most rare book to date. This signed, limited hardcover was published in December 2012 by Bad Moon Books (it was later released — and is still available — in Trade Paperback and eBook). This particular copy is #11 of 72.

So, if you’re ever in the Columbus, Ohio area and are looking for a cool little bookstore go check out Acorn. They are located at 1464 West Fifth Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212 or you can visit them online.

A şaptea Casă (The 7th House)

Revista de Suspans_Sept2014

(Here’s another one I missed last year)

Revista de suspans is a Romanian horror zine who first translated my short story “One Brew Too Many?” then went on to translate and publish my short story “Gnomus”. They then translated and published my short story “The 7th House” back in September 2014. This 6,600 word short story is a follow-up to “Gnomus”.

The 7th House takes place at a haunted house attraction where Steven exacts his revenge on Deborah’s nasty little way of making him do what she wants.

Below are the links to the story in both Romanian and English.

I thought some of you that are still on the fence about purchasing a copy would like to see some actual photos of the signed, limited edition hardcover of The Death of a Horror Writer.

Hope you dig them enough to pick up one of the few remaining copies. If so, you can do so via the link below.

Cursed Curiosities

Cursed Curiosities

This one is a few months late. The truth of the matter is; until recently, I didn’t know this anthology was released back in August by Barbwire Butterfly Books. In any event, my short story “Gnomus” was reprinted in this tome. Take a gander, if you like.

Description:

Buyer Beware!

If you’ve recently approached a strange emporium of oddities or antiquities, I hope you’ve taken a few things into consideration…

What urge brought you there?

Were you drawn to a particular item on display?

Did it call out to you?

Though everything inside was for sale, did you consider how much you were willing to spend? Perhaps you proffered the listed price, or perhaps you haggled the price down a bit. But did you consider the imperceptible fine print? You may just find you’ve paid a great deal more than what your parcel is worth.

The following twenty-seven works chronicle such transactions. When you purchase this anthology, be sure you’re only paying the listed price to a reputable dealer. Otherwise, I cannot be responsible for the consequences.

You can learn more about this anthology and pick up your own Trade Paperback copy HERE.
