Shortlisted in Best American Short Stories

I'm excited to announce that one of my stories has been shortlisted in the new BASS anthology. Now if anyone purchases this anthology and ends up getting trapped in an elevator or pinned beneath a giant rock, they will most likely see my name while reading the notable stories section out of sheer boredom. As far as I'm concerned, that's what it's all about. Congrats to all the great writers on the list!

The Year's Best Dark Fantasy and Horror 2010

We've all had this happen to us: You're sitting there with your candelabrum, reading a bunch of dark fantasy and horror. You're trying to enjoy yourself, but the dark fantasy and horror you're reading just isn't the best. What's a diehard DF&H fan to do? Until recently, nothing. But fortunately the good people at Prime Books have decided to take action. This October, they will be publishing a brand new anthology, The Year's Best Dark Fantasy and Horror 2010.

No longer will you be forced to hang around campfires and sixth grade slumber parties in search of the best DF&H stories. Instead, Prime Books will be making it available to you in a single, handsome volume. Needless to say, this anthology will include my dark fantasy smash hit, Frost Mountain Picnic Massacre. It will also include stories by Kelly Link, Peter Straub, and many others. You can check out a complete table of contents here.

Okay Internet, Lock Up Your Internet Daughters

Brent Van Horne, the best short story writer/copywriter/content strategist you've ever read about in a blog post, has just launched his new site. So if you want to take a break from downloading illegal music and Super Nintendo emulators, I strongly suggest you click here. Or here. But whatever you do, don't click here.
