    And my little haiku placed in the February Necon Flash Fiction Challenge: http://neconebooks.com/flash-fiction/

    Thanks, it's hard to get any kind of coherent narrative in a haiku, but I enjoy the challenge.

    And love that haiku! It bumped Tales from the Midnight Shift way up in the queue.
    Bless you.

    I'll be doing a horror writer's workshop this weekend in Greenville SC with James Newman. We recently went on the local news to promote it.

    Just got the latest blurb for DISINTEGRATION from Irvine Welsh! Stoked. Here's all four:

    “A dark existential thriller of unexpected twists, featuring a drowning man determined to pull the rest of the world under with him. A stunning and vital piece of work.”
    —Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting and Filth

    “Sweet hot hell, Richard Thomas writes like a man possessed, a man on fire, a guy with a gun to his head. And you’ll read Disintegration like there’s a gun to yours, too. A twisted masterpiece.”
    —Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds and Double Dead

    “Thomas builds his universe and its population with terse prose and dynamic, often horrifyingly visceral imagery that unspools with grand weirdness and intensity. Then he rips that universe apart, brick by bloody brick. Disintegration is provocative. It’s also damned fine noir.”
    —Laird Barron, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All and The Croning

    “Disintegration is gritty neo-noir; a psycho-sexual descent into an unhinged psyche and an underworld Chicago that could very well stand in for one of the rings of Dante's Hell. Richard Thomas' depraved-doomed-philosopher hitman is your guide. I suggest you do as he says and follow him, if you know what's good for you.”
    —Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Little Sleep
