Books Read 2014

Here's a list of the books I read in 2014. The ones with asterisks by them are ones I found myself liking a lot or recommending repeatedly. The ones with two asterisks by them are ones I published through Grindhouse or Atlatl Press, so, of course, I like those a lot but there's a pretty heavy bias there.

Hope you had a great year and keep reading!

Yellow Springs Book Fair, Audiobooks, New Book Coming Soon

I'll be attending the Yellow Springs Book Fair on August 16 with authors C.V. Hunt and D. Harlan Wilson. We'll have copies of all of our books along with other books in the Grindhouse Press, Atlatl Press, and Anti-Oedipus Press catalogues. Come out and say hi if you're in the area. We'll be hot and tired and starved for attention.

If you like audiobooks, all of mine are now available on Audible. I'm narrating most of them. One reviewer said I sound like a bored robot. That's probably a bad thing. This is what I spent most of last fall and into this winter doing. It was grueling.

I have a new book called CREEP HOUSE scheduled to come out this October through Grindhouse Press. It will be another collection of horror stories. I should have a cover and table of contents to post soon.

As always, thanks for your continued interest. I'm going back to work now.
