Today I received a copy of The Big Book of Bizarro in the mail. My story "Scotomization" appears in it. Burning Bulb Publishing put it out, and I've never worked with them before, so I didn't know what to expect. True to its name, this anthology of Bizarro horror, sci-fi & fantasy, and erotica fiction is BIG, and it's immaculately edited and laid out. And most importantly, the content is unique, innovative and compelling ... something I rarely encounter. If you like my writing, I suspect you'll like this book. Thanks to the editors, Rich Bottles Jr. and Gary Lee Vincent, for their keen eyes and deft aesthetic mojo.
