I Wrote a Story About a Werewolf.

1564135329

A werewolf story — something I would normally choose to write, but…in doing research for another project, I came across the legend of the loup garou, the French take on the wolf-man.

And what was even more fun to me was that my hometown of Detroit had all kinds of loup garou stories from back in its early French, fur-trappin’ days.

I was inspired, and fortunately for me, there was an open call for stories for an anthology of werewolf tales. So off it went.

The book never happened. This is not an uncommon thing. So the story went into cold storage. For a good while too.

Then one of my writer buddies, Matthew Vaughn (check out The ADHD Vampire — it’s hilarious) and his brother decided to put together a fun movie monsters anthology and launch a new indie press at the same time (Red All Over Books). And it found a home.

JUST IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN READING!

Plenty of good reading here, starring your favorite old school movie monsters. I hope you have a chance to check it out. At the time of this post, it’s ebook only, but print is on the way.

Check it out on Amazon: The Classics Never Die!

Trick or Treat!

Bonus points: What movie poster does the cover art remind you of? Hmmmm….

Hey,

So the fine folks of Ghost Parachute have once again given me a little room to strut my stuff. Here, I was going for a little Twilight Zone with a dash of The Lottery by Shirley Jackson.

I seem to have found a home for my short horror fiction. It’s been a fun year contributing to this emerging publication. Who knows what tomorrow might bring?

I hope you enjoy. Art by the amazing Brett J Barr.

I got weird in public, yet again.

In case you missed it:

My blast of weirdness from the Ghost Parachute reading the other week.

Lighting was a challenge, but I can’t control everything, golblammit.

And the drunk in the other room doesn’t help, but it was at a bar so there’s no fighting that.

 

Do Not Read on a Full Stomach.

The literary maniacs over at Ghost Parachute have given me another opportunity to creep you out.

If you have a minute, check out my latest flash fiction. It’s a little something for the foodies.

Just a little bite.

Enjoy.

Alternatives

There are other worlds
Other places
Other times
Where I am someone else
Someone better
Someone worse
Richer
Poorer
Sicker
Imprisoned
Crippled
Celebrated
Hated
Legendary
Unknown
Or
Already dead.

I’d like to travel to these places.
I’d like to meet these other Toms.

Maybe they could teach me something.

Or maybe I will teach them.

Check out my new flash fiction, “Freaky Phalanges” over at Ghost Parachute and then contemplate your navel.

I finally broke though and got a new piece published. I’m deep in my Tom Cave working on the next book, so I don’t know how many more I’ll have this year.

So savor the flavor and all that and check out my latest weird-out over at the young yet amazing lit mag, Ghost Parachute.
