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.

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.

A Dramatic Reading of H.P. Lovecraft’s “From Beyond”

The Resonator by Steve Maschuck

Here’s some Halloween fun for your earholes!

Recently I performed a reading of H.P. Lovecraft’s “From Beyond” on The Drunken Odyssey podcast. Three other fine readers and stories by old H.P. are featured as well.

I am the final reader, but I encourage you to check out the other stories first.

H.P. Lovecraft Roundtable

weirdtalescover-1942-05-b-canada

Recently I returned to one of the finest literary podcasts around, The Drunken Odyssey with John King.

We talked Cthulhu mythos, Lovecraft’s work overall, as well as the tentacled monster in the middle of the room — the elements of racism and xenophobia present in his original works.

How to navigate the art and the artist? Can we? Should we?

What can be learned from all of this and how best to apply it moving forward?

Did I say anything that makes me sound smart?

Have a listen and decide for yourself!
