Hayakawa's Mystery Magazine

My story "Digging for Adults," which originally appeared in Stranger on the Loose, has been translated into Japanese and published in the August 2010 issue (No. 654) of Hayakawa's Mystery Magazine. I wish I could read the translation. "Digging for Adults" has also been optioned for a short film.

The Big Book of Bizarro

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.
