Fairly Wicked TalesFairly Wicked Tales, the anthology of twisted fairy tales (including my contribution, “Sweetheart, the Dream is Not Ended”) which was published by Angelic Knight Press last summer, only to go out of print at the end of the year when Ragnarok Publications bought AKP, has now been reissued by Ragnarok (under its AKP imprint). To your left is the hella-awesome new cover art by Shawn T. King.

The e-book is available from Amazon only at the moment, though I expect it will be arriving at other fine sellers of e-consumables soon. The print edition with the new cover isn’t available yet, but should be soon.

For more information on FWT, check out my Fairly Wicked Tales page, which includes links to reviews as well as buy links, and will be updated as un-irregularly as I can manage given that my brain got changed out for a whack-a-mole game last year and I keep eating the replacements I order.

Fading LightIn case you haven’t read the news, Angelic Knight Press, which published two anthologies featuring stories of mine, has been acquired by another press (and is set to become that press’s new horror imprint).

That’s good news for Fairly Wicked Tales (which includes my story “Sweetheart, the Dream is Not Ended”), which will be reissued in early 2015. Not such good news for Fading Light: An Anthology of the Monstrous (which includes my story “Goldilocks Zone”), which will be going out of print at the end of the year.

So… if you’re still hoping to get a copy of Fading Light, either ebook or dead-tree version, you don’t have a lot of time left. Get thee hence to a bookseller!

(If you’re into the whole actual physical book thing, you hardcore antiquarian you, you can get a copy of Fading Light from CreateSpace for 25% off with this coupon code: EQHG7CPV )

Happy Christmas! Merry holidays! Hail Krampus!

Edit (4/24/15: Removed links, as Fading Light is now out of print)

I'm over on Sean A. Lusher's blog today, talking about seven books that made me weird(er). What books have messed with your head in these ways? Come share!

Also, while I'm here, I should mention Brutal Light is on Shelfari now... and so am I. You know, in case you feel like rating and reviewing.

Bionic penguins take to the water -- and the skies.

Why is it my guidance counselor never mentioned 'building flying robot penguins' as a career option?

I especially am looking forward to when the bionic penguins take on their clear nemesis, the bionic octopus.

And if that wasn't enough:

13 things that do not make sense.

I bet the bionic jellyfish will solve these.

Our world may be a giant hologram

So that's the problem with the world. We're trapped in a holodeck episode from Star Trek: Voyager.

British pilot hits cow during emergency landing

Of course, he says it was an accident. And the cow is apparently unhurt and not pressing charges. Me, I think this was the opening salvo of 'Mad Cow Wars II: The British Empire Strikes Back.'

I've finally been able to take some vacation time this year, for the first time since last November. The garganto-work-project-thing that was, as last reported, jumping up and down on my head has now been staked, beheaded, and buried at the crossroads beneath the light of the full moon (or, if you want the technical jargon, 'put into production'), so work pressures have suddenly gotten much lighter, to the point where I can actually be leisurely during my leisure time. Hurrah!

All the things that were causing me stress in the past few years -- job, finances, other stuff -- are causing much less these days. Plus, I'm writing again, on a new short story. Plans for my next novel are coming together. I'm actually feeling kind of...

Wait, I'd better not say it.

Um... attention universe, ignore all that I just said. I feel, um, really bad and stuff. Argh. Because reptilians from another dimension are making my head all explodey. That would ruin anyone's day.
