I have a love love love love love relationship with Paper Darts. I love the art and prose they publish and their awesome website and awesome print issues, and they love my prose (yes, each of those "loves" was a link to a different piece of mine). Volume 7 has one of my newest stories … Continue reading New Story in Paper Darts Volume 7. Pre-order now!
So Long Been Dreaming: Postcolonial Science Fiction & Fantasy edited by Nalo Hopkinson and Uppinder Mehan was the sweetest well of water when I was dying of thirst in the desert. I went looking for this book and others like it, and when I got it from super inter-library loan, I was blown away. I … Continue reading Recommended Reading: So Long Been Dreaming: Postcolonial Science Fiction & Fantasy
We've been told that people who don't know history are doomed to repeat it, but most of us don't know much true history, having been indoctrinated with mythological nationalism in high school, then having most media and everything about our lives reflect these myths as if they were true. Even the Rain is a really … Continue reading Recommended Viewing: Even the Rain
I'm teaching this half-day class at The Loft on October 28th for anyone interested in dark/weird/horror fiction. I personally engage in darkness to find the light, but the course takes a broad view of what horror is, what it's for, and how it can be done. More Information at The Loft website. Something Wicked This … Continue reading I’m Teaching at The Loft this Fall
I am trying to be better about website upkeeping. (I am bad at it.) There's a new review up at This Is Horror. I'll admit to being quite pleased with what was said about "The Triplets." Tried to reblog V.H. Leslie's post with pertinent links, but failed. Here's a pasted excerpt: With stories from Malcolm … Continue reading Shadows & Tall Trees 7 Reviews, Interviews, & Updates
Today is the release date for Shadows & Tall Trees Vol. 7, where you can find my latest story, "The Triplets." My copies arrived Saturday. When my partner went to read the soft cover version, a spider watched him from the ceiling, threatening to drop on him at any second. He wondered if the … Continue reading These Are A Few of My Favorite Things
So these posts were all disappearing into the ether as I made more of them, so I tried to bring back the "blog" portion of the page, not that I wanted to call it a "blog." So now I'm trying to see if new posts will archive to the page I put back or not. … Continue reading Another Dang Test
It is totally worth pointing out that when I first started putting this site together, I deleted one million preinstalled widgets and also the "blog" portion. I had zero intentions of saying anything about anything that wasn't simply linking to my stories and essays and maybe interviews I've done or will do or am doing. … Continue reading More On The Big Head Debate
It's occasionally suggested to me that I have a big head. This suggestion is usually offered by either my partner, who is a wizard, or occasionally by my best friend, who is also a wizard, and an editor. Wizards have a really big problem with barging into places, giant heads first, and declaring this and … Continue reading A Big Head
Are you reading these? Why? Why not, really? I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm not a web developer, but I am also too much of a weird control freak to just let someone else do this for me, though they've offered to for free. Do I have trust issues? Am I paranoid?
