This week I talk about Halloween. Yeah Halloween! I give you a short story, a fun yard, and then throw a tantrum about all these people suddenly deciding to hate on halloween costumes…

Halloween Extravaganza

shroud-hallCOVER200Halloween 2010 Issue of Shroud Magazine.

Chock full of great fiction and nonfiction from the likes of Alethea Kontis, Bob Ford, Rio Youers, Jeremy Shipp, Norman Partridge, Dan Keohane, Jodi Lee and so many more. Guest edited by Kevin Lucia, with art by Steven Gilberts, this issue is beautiful inside and out.

For my part, I have a halloween tale “Childhood Ghosts,” as well as a nonfiction article regarding costumes “Where Did All The Monsters Go?”

Purchase from Shroud Magazine

In other news: The vampire novel is coming along swimmingly. I forgot to draw for the Six Days contest and will do so within the next few days. And Dark Futures is available on Amazon…

Black Hole Sun

“Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just
Disappear”

~Soundgarden

But this blog is not about the song. This blog is to discuss a little story about the end of the world…

In the midst of the “Six Days” craziness (and thank you again to all that ordered), “Dark Futures: Tales of SF Dystopia” was mentioned and possibly lost in this blog. The SF collection is now available on Amazon and includes “Black Hole Sun” by Alethea Kontis and me, a story of apocalyptic woe as seen through the eyes of two estranged childhood friends.

It’s a different story, told completely through the Twitter feeds and emails of two teenagers. It’s new, it’s edgy, and we had a good time doing it.

And we’re not done.

You see, the apocalypse was just starting. The world doesn’t actually end for 90 days. And where the story left off in the collection, it continues online. Seth (@notgoth555) and Erica (@SunnieLu) are Twittering the end of days, as the story continues to unfold live. Follow them by clicking their names above and watch.

You’re going to want to know how the end of the world sounds… it’s not a whisper, it’s a fail whale!

Gypsy’s Library

I love this picture. I found it by accident the same night I found the eggshell. Not only is it a cool library that I would love to have… I would totally live here! It reminds me of the tree I used to climb as a child and hide in to read. I dragged many a novel up that bark and sprawled across those limbs precariously to vanish into other worlds filled with monsters and mayhem and damn I miss those days on occasion!

Of course, for today’s purposes we’re just using it for a blog pic, but it was a good excuse to show you and toss a link for everyone to go check out what else Lori Nix has on her site.

The real meat of this blog is regarding my library. Or rather, my contributions to libraries around the world.

Yep, it’s a writing update. Boring, I know. But it comes with pretty art work and two links to more pretty art work =)

2010… from my mind to your library:

“Good Enough” Short story in Dark Faith, the Mo’Con Anthology: available through Apex Publications

“Black Hole Sun” Short story written with Alethea Kontis in Dark Futures, An apocalyptic sci-fi anthology edited by Jason Sizemore: available through amazon

6 Days, my novel, coming from Maelstrom, a new line of Thunderstorm Books pre-order 10.1.10

“Spilled Milk” short story written in Brian Keene‘s Rising Universe, to be included with his novella The Rising: Deliverance, coming from Maelstrom, a new line of Thunderstorm Books pre-order 10.1.10

“Divorcing the Dead” short story which will be available as a special chapbook with the above mentioned pre-orders if they’re ordered by 10.31.10 (HA! fat chance them being available after 10.4.10). Chap will also include a short from Brian Keene.

“Spell” Short story in Up Jumped the Devil, a Nick Cave anthology coming from PS Publishing

“Childhood Ghosts” short story coming up in the Halloween edition of Shroud.
