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.
Do you like Bigfoot?
How about The Last Starfighter?
Do you wish Bigfoot was in The Last Starfighter?
Read my story “Space Pig Killer” along with a gaggle of amazing other writers and stories in this new Bizarro collection!
I’m super stoked to be a part of this. I hope you dig it.
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.
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!

When he was young, Ed was beaten by bullies because he couldn’t get into his locker fast enough. Goddamn combination lock.
After graduation, he enrolled in a key-making school where he learned to make a wide variety of keys – for the home, for lock boxes and safes, and even for skeletons.
He had a child. She would never suffer as he had. She would be safely surrounded by keys.
He spent the next twenty years working 16 hour days, 7 days a week. Eventually he had enough money.
He bought her a piano.
She never learned to play.

It’s been a slow year on the publishing front. Many things cooking on the stove but not much to nibble on.
But there is this little snicker-snack. Fresh and ready, my latest published work is now available.
I’ve had my way with a beloved fairy tale character. Here is our offspring, hanging out with the equally twisted children of authors Alex. S. Johnson and Berti Walker.
See it on Amazon (sigh, I know) HERE.
