Greg Hall Interviewing Joe Lansdale

At last year's Horrorfind, Greg Hall had a chance to sit down and interview horror/suspense legend Joe R. Lansdale and turn The Funky Werepig into a visual show. Hat's off to Greg. He had me on the internet radio version of his show a couple of times and giving a relatively new author the same chance to be on the same show as people who have been around a lot longer--like Peter Straub, Thomas F. Monteleone, and Brian Keene--shows amazing support that a lot of writers don't get. Greg's also a writer. If you get the chance, check out his debut novel, At the End of Church Street. Also, if you haven't read any Lansdale and you're interested in bizarre horror, I'd recommend The Complete Drive-in.

Here's the first clip of their interview. There are 3 altogether. Enjoy!

Fill the Grand Canyon Installment 5 and 6

Installments 5 and 6 of Fill the Grand Canyon and Live Forever are now live! Normally it updates on Mondays but I goofed and uploaded Installment 6 on some random day so I decided to go ahead and upload Installment 5, too, (so it makes a little more sense). If you're one of the people who read this in its original incarnation back in November, these would be the first ones you haven't read.

Harmony Korine and Die Antwoord (Fuckness)

Harmony Korine + Die Antwoord = We Should All Watch This Together Right Now!

I just added fuckness to the blog title because apparently 17 times as many people click on something with the word "fuck" in the title. Also, if you want to download the digital version for 99 cents, I will not stop you.

Is available (digitally) for a low low 99 cents! This time I'm not trying to sell a billion. Only 2. Thanks for reading!

For Kindle

For everything else

Installment 3 of Fill the Grand Canyon and Live Forever

... is now live!

So far, we are at 192 page views and have stalled at 10 followers who are all great.

Probably Monday or Tuesday, I will have a surprise novel appearing in digital form for the Kindle (on Amazon) and on Smashwords. It's called Fuckness and it's 70-some thousand words long. It will be priced at an ultra-affordable .99 cents. Whether or not it appears in paperback will pretty much be determined by the interest it generates (or doesn't). This is an experiment in method. Also, it's a book I like quite a bit. It was my first really "serious" attempt at writing a book and liking it enough to try selling it to agents and editors. I wrote it at the end of the 20th century when I was in my early twenties. It's been rejected by nearly everyone and seriously considered by a lot of agents and editors. The final critique amounts to it being too weird for mainstream folks and too normal for bizarro folks. I have read it and edited it so many times, I have to publish it so I stop doing obsessing over it. So let me know what you think. I'm really starved for attention.

Installment 2

Installment 2 of Fill the Grand Canyon and Live Forever is now live.

Currently, it has 10 followers and around 150 pageviews. I'll continue posting these stats as they grow/decline mainly because I'm obsessed with statistical kinds of things.

I did not sell a billion copies of Zerostrata and, therefore, have to continue going to the dayjob. Actually, I probably only need to sell around 100,000 copies to take a year off work and focus on writing and promotion. I'll leave it at .99 cents for a few more days to make that happen. Thanks to those who have bought a copy. By the end of this year, I will have 9 or 10 books in print. Fill the Grand Canyon is basically my work-in-progress. Essentially, I'm writing it, running spell check, and reading through it once to make sure I haven't made any mistakes that are too stupid. At the end of this year, I will have nothing in the vault for the first time since being published. That's going to be a weird feeling.

A Billion Hearts Beating as One

So I need you to help me sell a billion copies of Zerostrata this weekend. It's only 99 cents for the Kindle. Thanks.


And here's a cover of a book that never happened:
