    thanks! it's a great anthology, i mean, i basically reached out to the authors that have most influenced me, and the best neo-noir stories i've read in the past 5-10 years. it's not quite horror, but there are definitely elements of horror, and some authors that you horror fans will recognize, such as Brian Evenson and Stephen Graham Jones

    TWO BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS, and an UPDATE

    10155460_10152795815430299_8555304182175653286_n.jpg

    First, I signed a two-book deal with Random House Alibi. Thanks to the HWA / SFWA, the contract and everything is just fine, no controversy or worries. My first book is DISINTEGRATION, a neo-noir, transgressive thriller about a man who sees his family die in a car accident, and slowly falls apart. Dexter meets Falling Down. Out in eBook only (for now) in May 2015. Random House has a lot of connections, so there a lot of opportunities I think.

    Second, I've signged with Dzanc Books for a novel in four novellas called FOUR CORNERS. It's four novellas by myself, Nik Korpon, Axel Taiari, and Caleb Ross, set in four parts of a city, over four seasons. It's kind of a Sin City vibe. Out in August 2015.

    It's been many years since I started both of these projects, six years and four years, respectively. But I think it's some of my best work.

    ALSO, the first anthology I've ever edited, THE NEW BLACK, it's out next week. Tons of authors you know, and we got a great blurb from Jack Ketchum: The New Black ought to be the New High Standard for dark fiction anthologies. It's loaded with intelligence and talent. Every one of the pieces in this extraordinary compilation is worthy of your full attention."

    Significant edits have been made to my oldest collection, These Old Tales (a handful of stories removed, a few combined, and some artwork added). I've also added a hardcover edition for purchase. If you've previously purchased a digital copy of this book and would like an updated version, please contact me and I will provide a Smashwords code for a free copy.

    Hi, Richard. This is great news. You couldn't ask for a better review! I've registered at Goodreads for the contest (but will--one way or the other--snag a copy!).

    Some updates on THE NEW BLACK, the first anthology I've ever edited, out with Dark House Press, where I'm also Editor-in-Chief.

    We got our first blurb today, from none other than Jack Ketchum:

    Also, we're giving away TEN COPIES over at Goodreads.

    ENJOY!

    Thanks, William. I was worried early on, as I didn't have any ideas floating around after getting invited to do a post. But this seems to have entertained a few. Unfortunately, I was a beekeeper when I was younger, so this wasn't my first time being swarmed. But I think the failed date stung more than the bees. :P
