Hey, gang. I’ve got a couple of new stories out in a couple of really fantastic publications: HORROR FACTORY and NEEDLE: A MAGAZINE OF NOIR.
The terrific folks at the Crime Factory put HORROR FACTORY out on Halloween, and it’s got a great table of contents featuring interviews with Joe R. Lansdale, Jack Ketchum, and Lawrence D. Cohen and Tommy Lee Wallace discussing the making of Stephen King’s IT with Lee Gambin. There is also brand-spankin’-new fiction by David James Keaton, Andrez Bergen, Anonymous-9, Patti Abbott, Edward J. Rathke, Garnett Elliott, Matthew C. Funk, S.J.I. Holliday, John Hunt, and Yours Truly. (My tale is called “Consent.”) You can pick it up for your Kindle at Amazon for 99 cents, and a paperback version is forthcoming.
The new and long-awaited issue of NEEDLE is also out, and this time editor Steve Weddle went all sickhouse on our asses and made it a girnormous goddamn double issue. This hefty sack o’ noir contains new stories from Hugh Lessig, Brad Green, C.J. Edwards, Erik Arneson, Rob W. Hart, Seamus Scanlon, Chris Rhatigan, Kenneth Loosli, John Kenyon, Jeff Macfee, Garnett Elliott, Glenn Gray, Michael Bracken, Thomas Pluck, Timothy Friend, Court Merrigan, Kevin Adler, Kevin Brown, Stacey Cochran, Matthew C. Funk, Jim Winter, and Dan O’Shea. I’ve got a nasty little bit of Southern noir in it called “Dog Will Hunt,” and it’s one of my favorites. I think you’ll dig it, too. Get the new NEEDLE here.
