LIARS, FAKERS, AND THE DEAD WHO EAT THEM

“Had it not been for Scott Edelman and the other comic book storytellers of that time, I would have never wanted to become a writer, I would have never persisted until I actually became a writer, and I would certainly have never written The Rising, which means that zombie literature might not have enjoyed this new heyday.” That’s a brief excerpt from the Introduction I wrote for Scott Edelman’s new zombie collection LIARS, FAKERS AND THE DEAD WHO EAT THEM — which features two brand-new zombie novellas and is on sale right now in paperback for just $8.95.

The End of the END OF THE ROAD

For the last nine months (plus change), I’ve been writing a weekly column for Cemetery Dance called END OF THE ROAD. Ostensibly based around chronicling last year’s Farewell (But Not Really) Tour (in support of the novels PRESSURE and THE COMPLEX), the weekly column became something much more — a long goodbye to departed friends J.F. Gonzalez and Tom Piccirilli, a meditation on the horror genre post Stephen King’s DANSE MACABRE until now, an examination of the changes the last twenty years have brought to bookselling and publishing, and a postcard from me at the edge of fifty. Last Friday … Continue reading The End of the END OF THE ROAD
