Hello there, readers. It’s been a while since I posted an update here. But the lack of visible blog news activity doth not indicate a lack of invisible writing activity (not using the invisible ink, that is). I thought you might want to hear what sort of prose I have for you in the store. After publishing 20 books in 10 years, a nice round number and an awesome milestone altogether, I have no intention of slowing down, and so, let me tell you what you should expect from me in the coming months.
What is the price of the world? Vasher the unicorn hunter is after his one last kill. Once he’s slain the magical beast, he intends to retire and enjoy his wealth. He is willing to risk everything, but the cost he must pay may be greater than he ever imagined.
Normally, I don’t do big annual summaries, but then, this year, I felt it actually might be a useful exercise. Sort of recap what I did, what I wrote, what got published and where. If you’re a numberophil, this little article ought to be interesting.
The sixth SFFWorld.com anthology has been published! Unleashed unto the world, available for immediate purchase! Welcome to Pacific City is a super-powered sci-fantasy anthology set in an all-new shared world dominated by countless Heroes and Villains! I’ve got my own hero in the book too, so all the more reasons for you to get it.
Ho ho ho! Crimson Streets has just published my holiday-themed short story The Hunt. As it goes, Santa Claus gets arrested for burglary. While trying to save the world. On Halloween. Wearing flip-flops.
When bored housewives needed poltergeists purged from their homes, or garden spirits banished, they normally contacted the local city ghostbusting agency, ran by the Cleary sisters. When people required serious exorcising, they contacted A & A, Inc.
I have some more goatsome news. Nya of Nya Reads, has agreed to publish a guest post featuring my own words. This fine piece of lunacy prose is titled Love Thy Goats, and it goes into vivid detail of my (and Dietrich’s) fascination with cuddly grass-eating quadrupeds. As we have just recently had the launch of You Are Here, an SFFWorld.com anthology, and its teaser story titled A Tale of Guns and Goats and Velvet Coats, what better way is there to continue the theme than with another goat story?
Ladies and gentlemen! Grass eaters! Horned friends! The freshly launched anthology – You Are Here – Tales of Cartographic Wonders has a teaser story. It has just been published on SFFWorld.com, and what makes it quite interesting is – ’tis a story of mine. Now, hold your breath, here comes the title: A Tale of Guns and Goats and Velvet Coats. Say no more.
Kind of confusing, do you geddit. Do you? Anyhow, the latest SFFWorld.com anthology, You Are Here – Tales of Carthographic Wonders has been officially released, and you can merrily find it on Amazon. This one features 18 stories, one of which is mine – called Forward, as I’ve already hinted in my article from just a few days ago. So please, help yourselves, and I truly hope you enjoy it. P.S. And a teaser story for this anthology is out there, too! Title? A Tale of Guns and Goats and Velvet Coats. Yes, go read it. For free. More details coming soon.
And now for something completely different. A guest post. Normally, you would not get its kind here, but since we’re all one happy family over at SFFWorld.com, and we have another anthology coming out soonish, we have a blog tour, and we’re sharing each other stories. Only yesterday, Andrew Leon Hudson hosted mine. Today, I am happy to introduce Kurt Hunt, contributing author in Ecotones. He’s here to tell us why he submitted his world shattering story to SFFWorld.com’s fourth anthology.
