Author, Editor, Media Tie-In Writer

Bubble and Squeek for 10 Oct 2013

I’m about to run off to a long family reunion / vacation thing. So, me on the internet might be scarce. Though, I always have Twitter and my phone. The cat / house sitter has the usual instructions to text me daily cat pictures and to spoil them rotten. In the meantime, here’s a link round-up: an interview, an announcement, a photo, a release!

First up, I was interviewed on Jim Knipp’s blog.

Rogue Games has announced my book, Colonial Gothic: The Lost Colony.

David Mitchell and his brother did a horror photo based on my In a Gilded Light collection story “Finishing Touches.”

And a reminder that my Coins of Chaos anthology is released on Oct 15 while I’m away.

Spiders, Gods, and Monsters “What’s your book called?” I’ve been asked a couple dozen times since I announced its upcoming release. “The Spider in the Laurel.” “Oh. Is there a real spider in it?” is the inevitable next question. This is where I get stuck. I want to say, “Yes, there is a real spider in it, insomuch as the gods and monsters we write about in sci-fi and fantasy are real.” But I see the look. Spiders are creepy. Scary. I’m not buying a novel with a spider in the title, and on the cover, and in the damn book. So I say, “No, the spider is a metaphor. A part of a fairy tale actually.” “I like fairytales. Which one?” Now I’m stuck again. If I say that it’s a brand new fairy tale that I made up, I get a new look. I’ll believe you wrote a...
