Camelot Books has begun shipping copies of Is There A Demon In You? There are still copies available. You can order one here. Still a few free chapbooks left, too.
It occurred to me last night that, had the heart attack killed me, my Lifetime Subscribers would be justifiably pissed off. It didn’t kill me, but it has slowed me down. Over the last two weeks, I’ve been working on The Lost Level, Hole In The World, my keynote speech for Anthocon, and editing Apocrypha. That, combined with some familial stress, has left me feeling like I did in early September. I described it to my ex-wife this morning as “a head cold on the left side of my chest”. I had a much needed and welcome respite last Saturday night. Went out with Geoff Cooper, Kelli Owen, Bob Ford, Meteornotes, Wesley Southard, Matt and Pam Blazi, and Qweequeg, and spent an evening not thinking about deadlines or family stuff. Thanks to them for the break. And thanks to Apex Book Company for being patient above and beyond reason regarding this Lost Level deadline.
KHP won’t be publishing Binky. That was another one I blew the deadline on, and they elected to exercise the contractual clause that cancels the book. I don’t blame them a bit. The fault lies entirely with me. I mailed back the advance this morning, and I wish Jerrod, S.D., and Karen all the best in the world. They’re good folks, and business is just business. So, for now, Binky is on the back-burner. I’ll finish it after I finish some of these other late books.
Lifetime Subscribers can expect their next shipment in coming weeks. Shipments start next Monday and will be staggered, so please be patient. This shipment will include the following: The Damned Highway, Dead Sea, The Last Zombie: Dead New World, and The Last Zombie: Inferno issues #2, 3, and 4 (and copies of Clickers II for those who were shorted). January’s shipment will include Kill Whitey, Castaways, Ghoul, The Cage, Dark Hollow, and The Last Zombie: Inferno #5.
I’ll be at AnthoCon in Portsmouth, New Hampshire this weekend. My schedule is here. And next weekend, I’ll be in Portland, Oregon for Bizarrocon. Hope to see some of you there. As announced previously, these will be my last two appearances for quite a while.
