Howdy. I posted a couple months ago that eight of my novels were about to become unavailable for a while. Though there was a delay in that process, it looks like it’s now happening. The long and short of it is that my first publisher (Samhain Publishing) is closing, which means that the rights to […]Read more "Into the Unknown: The Disappearance of Eight Novels"

Which only makes me sort of a tool for making it the title of this post. But Mark is far from a tool. […]Read more "“The Ascent of Jonathan Janz”"
Howdy, friends! The Library Journal has just published an outstanding article featuring six big 2016 horror releases. Included in that lineup are Brian Keene’s PRESSURE and Joe Hill’s THE FIREMAN.
