What I'm Working On

I figure I should let people who like what I write know that I've got quite a bit of stuff written and making its way through the editing/revision pipeline.

First off, I've got an illustrated novella coming soon. It's called TABOOGASM, and it's about a guy who wins the lottery every time he plays.

There's a new Halloween horror story set to premiere in an anthology this fall.

I also plan on releasing a full-length fantasy novel by the end of this calendar year. This will be the first in a planned trilogy. All fantasy novels come in threes, right?

I've written four new novellas. The first of which, BRIDES OF HANOVER BLOCK, comes out in 2017.

And I'm actively writing a fantasy/adventure horror novel. I have no idea when this sucker will see the light of day. I'm at around the 10% mark with this one. Early days. But it's going well.

So, thanks to everyone who reads my work. Just thought I'd let you know there's much more to come.

Ten Bookish Questions

I've seen this questionnaire making the rounds and thought I'd join in.

1. What book is on your nightstand now?

The Fireman, by Joe Hill.

2. What was the last truly great book that you read?

The Thicket, by Joe R. Lansdale

3. If you could meet any writer – dead or alive – who would it be? And what would you want to know?

I would like to interrogate Philip K. Dick.

4. What books might we be surprised to find on your shelves?

There are a few legal thrillers and paranormal romances. I don't read either genre, but books of all types seem to gravitate toward my office. They're all welcome here.

5. How do you organize your personal library?

For fiction, first by favorite author, then by genre. For non-fiction, by subject.

6. What book have you always meant to read and haven’t gotten around to yet? Anything you feel embarrassed never to have read?

A Clockwork Orange, although I'm not embarrassed about not having read that one yet.

7. Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what book did you feel you were supposed to like but didn't? Do you remember the last book you put down without finishing?

The Scarlet Gospels by Clive Barker was just awful. I actually stopped reading at the 70% mark. I've read (and greatly admire) all of Barker's major works and I honestly don't believe he wrote that book, at least, not most of it. It should not have been published.

The last book I left unfinished was The Double, by José Saramago. But I've abandonded that one twice now, so I might still go back and finish it.

8. What kinds of stories are you drawn to? Any you stay clear of?

I'm drawn to stories about independent investigators getting in over their heads in search of dangerous persons, places, or, especially, things.

I generally avoid romance fiction. I don't look on it with disdain or anything. It's just not my bag.

9. If you could require the president to read one book, what would it be?

Every sitting president should have to read this one.



10. What do you plan to read next?

It doesn't matter what I plan to read next, I always seem to just go with what I'm in the mood for at the moment. But I'd like to finish off a number of series I've started over the years. Daniel Abraham's Dagger & Coin, Greg Keyes's Age of Unreason, Will Christopher Baer's Phineas Poe, Glen Duncan's The Last Werewolf, to name a few.
