OW III interview

The former Outsider Writers Collective recently torched their old site and, rising from its ashes, re-dubbed themselves OW III. [EDIT: Since posting this, they’ve taken the name Carbon-Based Lifeform Blues.] Long ago, they were kind enough to take a chance on this tyro scribe, reviewing my then-unsung debut novel, Major Inversions. Recently, whilst surveying my […]

Noir at the Bar Vol. 2

My short story, “Untitled Stephenie Meyer Novel” (originally published in the Oprah Read This project) has found a new home in Noir at the Bar Vol. 2, an anthology available in paperback exclusively from Subterranean Books. “Stephenie” is a newly-revised version of my disturbing little tale about the aphrodisiac qualities of unreleased Twilight material in […]

Books and Booze interview

Combining two of my favorite things into one of my favorite new podcasts. Sensing that some of their former guests (though entertaining and knowledgeable) had been far too sober given its namesake, for my appearance this week, I took it upon myself to lower my inhibitions, articulation, grammatical skill, and possibly good judgment by way […]

“‘Burgatory” story at Solarcide

“No matter where you live in New York City, you always end up in Queens.” Opening lines always shoulder a lot of weight (and disproportionate thought). This one I pocketed from a pilot announcement as we were descending into LaGuardia, cemetery plots dominating the landscape out my window. Which later inspired the concept of a […]

Telecine column at ManArchy

I’m contributing semi-regularly to a new column at ManArchy Magazine called Telecine. The term itself describes the process of transferring film to tape or disk. Of course, it also sounds like a cool amalgamation of “television” and “cinema,” which will be my areas of focus. Expect articles covering movie trends, retrospectives, witty observations about screens […]

LitReactor Book Club: Flashover

The readers and writers at the excellent LitReactor have chosen my novel Flashover for discussion in their community forum next month. I’ll be lurking in the shadows and answering some questions as they go, then participating more actively later in the month once all the spoilery stuff is out of the way. The details, lifted […]

Booked Podcast reviews Flashover

Normally I wouldn’t give every review its own post, but this is a really good one. Aside from the fact that they loved it (spoiler?), it’s a detailed look at the novel from several angles, making connections I wouldn’t have thought of, and confirming many that I did. Booked Podcast Episode #89: S#!t Authors Say […]

How’s My Hair? reading

Yep, two readings in the same week. This time in a bookstore, which in theory would be a very different crowd than the inebriants populating Czar Bar a couple nights before, but I hope I can still count on you guys to help us keep things loose. And yes, three of the same blokes are […]

I’m so excited to finally be able to share this with the world, over three years in the writing. All the buy links are below, p-books and […]

$@!# Authors Say (and play)

Come downtown and enjoy some double-threat entertainment from yours truly and friends at this reading and music event. We stage these at bars whenever possible to encourage more raucous audiences, as well as the loosened morality that alcohol enables. For the participants, too, because a shot of Jameson can help calm the nerves when you’re […]
