Zombies, tweakers, and debauched amphibians
What I'm reading:
by Jeremy Robinson.
Get your pencils ready--real or virtual--because I have a boatload of people to pimp.
Saturday night at Lighthouse Writers Workshop I got to meet Peter Stenson, author of the forthcoming Fiend
. How's this for the logline? Breaking Bad
meets The Walking Dead
. That alone is worth fifty gallons of undead blood spatter. Preorder your copy from Amazon
Next up, more pimpage for an amazing writer, Julie Kazimer. Her sarcastic takes on urban fantasy may seem breezy and light, but they are loaded with cleverness and wit. She puts a keen hard-boiled and pervy spin to her f***ked up fairy tales. Plus, she was banned for being too racy for the blue bloods of
Westminster. Read what the Denver Post
says of Kazimer's latest, Froggy Style
Way back when, my sister passed along an ARC from Jennie Shortridge
and I've been hooked on her work ever since. She's coming to Denver within the next two weeks for the signing of her fifth novel, Love Water Memory
, Wednesday April 10 at the LoDo Tattered Cover and then for a workshop on voice at Lighthouse, Saturday, April 13
. Unfortunately, Shortridge's sales may be hurt because she's caught in a turf battle between her publisher Simon & Schuster and Barnes & Noble
. So stick it to the Man. Go to the Tattered Cover and buy an armload of copies.
And gargantuan congratulations
to Jason Heller and the staff of Clarkesworld Magazine
for their Hugo nomination for Best Semiprozine
. And to John Picacio, for yet another nomination for Best Professional Artist.
