    Thanks, oz. Nice work on Dark Bits. I like Apokrupha's LampLight magazine, so I might well check this out.

    Big congrats, Lucian!

    I have a reprint in DARK BITS (a reprint of the flash fiction piece "Visitors" from THESE OLD TALES that I reworked). Just came out late last night, so here is the publisher's website Apokrupha for availability. 53 authors, all flash fiction. Here is a link to the Kindle.

    I'm intrigued, Lucian! Congratulations on this.

    And also congrats to Richard for snagging Stephen Graham Jones. I like his stuff.

    Congratulations, Richard, on your CD story acceptance! (Like oz, I got you on FB, but it bears repeating here.) I'm really looking forward to reading it.

    If I may be so cheeky, I'd like to take this opportunity to raise awareness of a novel of mine, released Friday 13th September 2013.



    HOW WOULD YOU ESCAPE A MAZE OF THIRTEENTH FLOORS?

    You work in a skyscraper.
    You live in an apartment block.
    You stop over at a hotel.

    You find a button missing from the elevator’s control panel.

    Thirteen.

    Over the years superstition has robbed floors from thousands of buildings across the world, and continues to do so.

    Dawn McKenzie and Joe Bradley are about to discover where these floors really lie. Chased into an impossible maze split across time and space, their chances of survival narrow by the second.

    And in a maze with precious little food, they are not the only ones trying to survive…


    I hope that whets your appetite! If so then high yourself to my site (the above image is clickable) where you can download a three-chapter preview. Alternatively, here's a direct link: http://lucianpoll.files.wordpress.co...r-sampler1.pdf

    I feel extremely fortunate to have had your favourite CD forum members cast their eyes over an early draft of The Floors. Thank you bookworm1, RJK1981, Sabrina Morgan, saginawhorror and srboone. I'll be in touch shortly regarding thank-you copies!

    We now hand you back to your regular programming.

    I'm thrilled to announce the signing of Stephen Graham Jones. Dark House Press (where I'm Editor-in-Chief) will be publishing his fifth short story collection, AFTER THE PEOPLE LIGHTS HAVE GONE OFF, a fantastic compilation of dark fiction, in late 2014. This collection will feature some recently recognized stories, a few obscure titles, and even a little original fiction. Stephen is known best for writing horror, but excels in a wide variety of genres, including neo-noir, fantasy, science fiction, and crime—all with a literary bent. He has 17 novels and collections out (or forthcoming) including All the Beautiful Sinners, Ledfeather, and Demon Theory. He is constantly nominated for awards, in the various “best of” anthologies, and one of the most prolific and impactful authors writing today. His stories have appeared in Black Warrior Review, Cemetery Dance, Gulf Coast, Hobart, Juked, Weird Tales, and hundreds of other elite publications. Stephen will also have a story, “Father, Son, Holy Rabbit” in our first anthology, THE NEW BLACK, out in early 2014. We are honored to have him at Dark House Press.

    I just received two blurbs for my new collection, so I wanted to share. Pretty stoked.

    “Fresh Cut Tales gives us originality and ambition. Solid combination from a writer to watch.”
    ~ Mort Castle, Bram Stoker Award winning author of NEW MOON ON THE WATER

    “FRESH CUT TALES by Kenneth W. Cain is an enthralling, eclectic collection of unputdownable speculative fiction. I thoroughly enjoyed it!”

    Thanks very much, sir! I actually clicked into here to grab "The Buskers' Union" and Ken's collection, and walked right into a great compliment. I appreciate that.

    Thanks, Terry! Glad you liked it.

    Also, if anyone has reached this point of the thread and not read Michael Wehunt's story, linked further up this page, then scroll back up and check it out. It's very good indeed.
