UPDATED: Books and Booze Live

UPDATE: Here’s a video of my reading, with two stories. Yes, I was fairly inebriated by this point. That’s right, having just celebrated their first anniversary as a podcast, the Books and Booze crew is throwing down with a shindig on June 22. Readings, dinner, drinks, debauchery, and inevitable hijinks. Cicero’s is a great location, […]

The Booked. Anthology

First of all, if you’ve never listened to Booked. Podcast before, I’ll wait while you get clicky and download some eps. Or stream it—whatever—just get it in you by any means. Odds are good they’ve reviewed something you’re thinking about reading, or talked to your favorite authors, and dropped some knowledge and smack and hilarity. […]

Gas Up the Stair Car

I was gonna do this whole post about evolving media distribution, and how I dig the new Netflix model because it allows me to shotgun series the way I prefer. But I already pretty much covered that with my House of Cards write-up over at ManArchy. And really, I’m such an Arrested Development fanboy that […]

AWP 2013 — Boston

Usually, this is where I would regale you with tales of torporific panels led by respected authors, new writerly techniques learned, rockstar-studded reading events, and sweaty hands shook. This recap will contain none of those. Okay, very few of those. AWP is a yearly conference for writers, publishers, and writing programs. I’ve written about it […]

“Speed Ramp” story at Word Riot

The February 2013 issue of Word Riot features my flash-fiction* story “Speed Ramp,” about a homeless Indian boy with a flanging disorder, wherein his perception of time speeds and slows. It was partly inspired by the music video for “Guttersnipe” by Bhi Bhiman (below), which you may as well peep first—don’t worry, no spoilers there. […]

“The Sacred and Profane”

I wouldn’t usually devote an entire post to one measly little song, but I’m inordinately proud of this one. “The Sacred and Profane” dates back 10 years, when I originally one-man-banded it in a metallic style. Always dug it, but having by-necessity performed its vocal as well, that left something to be desired, tainting the […]

“Shivaree” story at ManArchy

Just in time for Halloween, ManArchy staff authors contributed a week’s worth of quick scary/spooky stories to set the mood and prickle your nape hairs in this witching season. Mine’s called “Shivaree” and warns about getting nosy with some noisy neighbors. Look for other flash-length frights from Richard Thomas, Chris Deal, Bob Pastorella, Michael Paul […]

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 […]
