Link Day

Weird Menace 1 WebIt’s been busy and sad here at Jones central. While mourning the death of an old friend my blog tour has rolled on and on, and a whole slew of folks have been kind enough to host my ramblings about my new book and the writing process. More on that in a moment.

First, I’m very excited to announce the release of a collection of grand pulpy fun featuring the work of my very good friend John Chris Hocking. As you probably know, I think the world of Hocking and his writing and wish we’d see a whole lot more of it. This collection is more than a little on the purple side, but it’s a blast, and Hocking’s tale does a wonderful job of emulating the old thriller pulps without parody.

You can find a copy and read more about it right here.

plague of shadowsSpeaking of fiction in print, my first Pathfinder novel, Plague of Shadows, is now available as an audio book! Woo-hoo! You can find that here as well as all sorts of other places.

Now, as to those blog posts, here, belatedly, are the first three from last week.

I was over at SFSignal on October 5 talking about my new book and how I tried to find a new approach to writing it.

Stephanie Lorree invited me over to Scribler to Scribe to talk about how I got started in the industry, and you can find that post here.

Over at Little Miss Trainwreck I wrote about sliding horror into my fiction on October 8th.

  1. Thanks for the kind words, Howard.

    My tale in Weird Menace Volume 1, “Bodies for the Brain Butcher” (ahem…), was almost too much fun to write. It’s got eldritch sorcery/super science, a grotesque henchman, a hungry aquatic monster, and a crazed, sadistic villain with absolutely fiendish plans for the brawny hero and lissome heroine.
    I tip my hat to Carl Jacobi, but the story’s hero and the prolonged, brutal battle at the conclusion are salutes to Robert E. Howard.
    I’m grateful to James Reasoner for encouraging me, and hope the story finds a few like-minded individuals out there who derive half as much enjoyment reading the thing as I did writing it.
