Favorite Reads of 2013

I managed to consume 32 books this year. Most came from small presses, and were quite good. Plenty has already been said about the big titles, so I focus on reviewing the underserved authors worthy of your attention. Because I’m lucky to get my book recommendations from readers with similar tastes (and because my to-read […]

Interview by TW Brown

Author of the Dead series and Zomblog series, TW Brown also contributed a story to The Booked. Anthology, having been a fellow former guest of the podcast. I answered some writerly questions on his blog, wherein I managed to insult my philistine friends, skewer traditional publishing models, and share my method for producing one entire […]

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. […]

“Ephemeralia” at Black Heart Magazine

Got a new (flash fiction) short story for you, called “Ephemeralia,” which Black Heart Magazine deemed fit for publication. Stick around and read some other tales of literary rebellion while you’re there. [Note: the site is assuredly not porn, though it may get filtered as NSFW.] I used to get ethereal and ephemeral mixed up. […]

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 […]

Leah Rhyne interview

Leah Rhyne, author of the Undead America series, lowered her Louisville Slugger and caught her breath long enough to ask me some writerly questions over at her site (apologies if you were expecting reversed roles; I never know how to word these things). We gnawed on such fleshy topics as sadistic plotting, choosing your own […]
