Pela Via flashes the literary world
Posted on January 31, 2011 Leave a Comment
One of my favorite female voices, Pela Via, is somebody who is unafraid of tension, loss, sexuality, love, and the deranged mind of a femme fatale, is writing a bunch of flash stories, 31 before her birthday. She’s on #9 right now, and these are classic Pela, so much fun to read, always surprising, always […]

I wrote an article on the panels I would go to, IF I was going this year. Had to cancel at the last minute, so I’m not happy about it. BUT, you can go and have fun for me. Lots to do, tons of great authors, the bookfair, and some great readings too.

A story that I wrote for my MFA program with the Pulitzer nominated author Dale Ray Phillips entitled “Terrapin Station” is now out in print in Pear Noir! #5. This is a really cool, eclectic journal. I recognize several other authors in here as well: Kim Chinquee, Kevin Moffett, Gabe Durham and Michael Kimball, so […]
In The Mean Time by Paul Tremblay

In The Mean Time by Paul Tremblay is a powerful collection of short stories, always interesting, with the usual Tremblay Twists, unique perspectives and layers of emotions. These stories really socked me in the gut, so head over to The Nervous Breakdown to get all of that information, see what my favorites were, and be […]

I can’t begin to say how excited I am about my 5,000 word short story “Victimized” being in Issue #15 of Murky Depths. They are such a cool publication, I mean, look at that cover? And this is one of my favorite stories. When I get the spread artwork from my story I’ll add those […]

This slim volume of dark fiction was a real joy to read. Check out my full review over at TNB. Dark Sky is doing a lot of great things, and this was an ideal place to start.

NOTE: Issue 9 is NOW OUT! Vain does such beautiful work.

I’ll also make an announcement when […]
The Orange Eats Creeps: A discussion between Richard Thomas and Blake Butler
Posted on January 12, 2011 Leave a Comment
The Orange Eats Creeps (Two Dollar Radio) by Grace Krilanovich is one of the most challenging and simultaneously rewarding books I read in 2010. I knew that I would have difficulty with this unique debut novel, so I decided to have a conversation with fellow dark and surreal author Blake Butler over a couple of […]
