    Sandra Ruttan talks about her new novel, HARVEST OF RUINS, over at my blog: http://craigwallwork.blogspot.com/ Dip into your subconscious!

    Sandra is the bestselling author of SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES, The Nolan, Hart & Tain series (amongst others), and editor of Spinetingler Magazine and Snubnose Press, Sandra Ruttan will be blogging here in the next few days to help promote her new novel HARVEST OF RUINS.

    Having short stories published by the likes of the very cool, Crime Factory, Pulp Pusher, Mouth Full of Bullets (which is one of the best titles for a magazine ever), and Crimespree Magazine, as well as interviewing acclaimed authors such as, Ray Banks, Tess Gerritsen, Mark Billingham and Kevin Wignall, Sandra Ruttan knows her stuff.

    She's also just edited (with Brian Lindenmuth) Speedloader, a collection of short stories that include a few of my writer friends including, Nik Korpon, Richard Thomas and artwork by the amazing Boden Stiener. This woman is busy, so I'm flattered and excited that she's chosen my blog to help promote her new novel.

    That looks great! The artist Matt Kindt wrote a deeply affecting story of a modern giant called "Three Story." Worth your time, as is this anthology by the look of it. Well done, Richard!

    Thanks, Nik. It's been the year of the anthology for me. First Shivers VI came out, then the Warmed and Bound hit the streets and tore up B&N, then I read at the Noir at the Bar series in my hometown of St. Louis and met a ton of great guys, which lead to this collection, and I still have the LA in 1000 Words book coming out from Thunderdome soon. Very exciting. I mean, it's not the Best Horror of the Year and I have yet to get with Ellen Datlow, but it's been very cool to be a part of these books. Keeping my fingers crossed for the Borderlands submission and "Rudy Jenkins Buries His Fears."

    My story "Twenty Reasons to Stay and One to Leave" is now LIVE at Metazen. I really like what these guys are doing. They publish one new story a day, and today, Monday, August 8th, I'm up. Great group of writers publishing here, honored to be a part of it. This story was a bit different than what I usually do, built on on idea, one phrase that starts off "Because..." which in my head, was the voice of the protagonist answering the accusations towards him: "Why do you stay with her?" or "Why don't you leave?" or "Why is she so screwed up?" or "Why do you still help her?"

    Good job there, Richard. I loved the line "It was a fake voodoo, but it was all that I had."

    Sorry for the double image. Something goofy I couldn't figure out how to fix.

    And, gratz Richard. I missed seeing this one the first time through. It's likely due to the crappy internet connection down here at the beach in Dewey. Must be some pact to make sure you can't connect for longer than a few minutes.

    Very cool, Ken and Richard.

    Pimping as usual....

    I was asked by Caleb J Ross a while back if I’d be interested in writing something for uber cool magazine, Cannoli Pie. As part of his epic Blog Tour promoting his new novel, Stranger Will, Caleb was given the opportunity to be guest editor for the August edition of the magazine. He solicited a few writers he likes, those being:

    • Richard Thomas, author of Transubstantiate

    • Nik Korpon, author of Stay God

    • Brandon Tietz, author of Out of Touch

    • Pablo D’Stair, author of Kaspar Traulhaine, approximate, as well editor in chief of Brown Paper Publishing

    And of course, me.

    I gave up Paradise Lost, a story that is centred around the idea of the Devil inviting God to Christmas dinner, and has been described by Caleb as, “…a universal allegory that blurs the line between faith and fact.”

    The idea of humanising deities, that maybe they have a job, and that job is domestic or humdrum, seems absurd enough to appeal to my sense of humour. Yes, the concept of someone, or something, greater that any mortal is reduced to the simplest chore or mundane task also provides me with a sense of empathy too.

    Paradise Lost sees the Devil made human and running a set of small holiday rental lodges. It also explores some deeper issues that affects mankind on a whole.

    My review of Donald Ray Pollock's THE DEVIL ALL THE TIME is now live at The Nervous Breakdown. Dark book, wild ride, lush and depressing and raw. Loved it.

    Thanks all! I've been very busy with these two. Still a bit to do before they are released, but I can see the finish line.

    The artwork is great. In book two below the "W" in your name it almost looks like the veins spell Mom. I'm not sure why I like that but I do.
