So I’ll be playing a bit part in Stokercon 2017, surrounded by a dazzling cast of truly—(no yanky-yanky, ye dear hearts and gentle people, as regards the femur, tibia, or patella of each of year)—legendary and amazingly talented author-starts. Too many and not too much to list here.
(NOTE: As usual the formatting on this blog is all wonky, bold text where I don't want it, red, black, no Stendhal, whatever. So just enjoy your technical superiority, on me!)
You must go check out the official site for everything: (www.stokercon2017.org)
In terms of me:
1. My first book of stories (and novella), YES TRESPASSING (edited by Michael Bailey, and published by his Written Backwards miracle), will be available to buy, to flip through and put back on the table and say “thank you” to me without looking me in the eyes, and if we get really lucky, juggled. Note: YES TRESPASSING is flammable but probably non-toxic.
2. I'll be on hoof and mouth for two signings—Most excitingly for me, for the envelope-pushing (we really need a new metaphor, I mean, envelope? You pushed one? Was it 400 feet long? What you want a medal?) Dark Sci-Fi anthology YOU, HUMAN (edited by Michael Bailey and hosted by Written Backwards, his imprint of Dark Regions Press), which contains my story The Immigrants.
The next day, I’ll be a part of one of many mini mass signing (makes me think of The People’s Temple, hey that’s not a bad idea for a story, like Jonestown, but they drink the wrong potion and die then the whole cult comes back as the living dead).
