The free book soundtrack for Darkness On The Edge Of Town is now available. You can also listen to soundtracks for Take The Long Way Home, Urban Gothic, Jack’s Magic Beans, The Cage, and Clickers II: The Next Wave.
As you know, Deadite Press are bringing all of my books back into print. So far, they’ve published Urban Gothic, Jack’s Magic Beans, Take The Long Way Home, Darkness on the Edge of Town, Tequila’s Sunrise, Dead Sea, Kill Whitey, Clickers 2, and Clickers 3. You can buy them all here.
Releases for the 2nd half of 2011 (in order): Castaways, Ghoul (movie tie-in edition), Dark Hollow, Ghost Walk, Babylon Falling, Earthworm Gods (previously published as The Conqueror Worms), Earthworm Gods: Selected Scenes From the End of the World, The Rising (Author’s Preferred Edition), City of the Dead (Author’s Preferred Edition), and The Rising: Selected Scenes From the End of the World.
Here’s me and Nolan Gould (Modern Family) on the set of Ghoul. I’ve said in interviews that Ghoul’s Timmy is one of my most autobiographical characters. Now Nolan is playing him, and knocking it out of the park. It’s very strange to see someone playing a fictionalized version of yourself as a kid, and I’m deeply honored and humbled by Nolan’s portrayal.
Anyway, that’s where I was last week. There wasn’t a lot of activity here, but I did post a free soundtrack for Clickers II, and we celebrated today’s non-Rapture with Take The Long Way Home. Despite the free soundtrack and the four pages worth of Ghoul set pics, several people got mad at me for not answering their emails or posting a new Deluge chapter. We pointed and laughed at one of them.
Later this week, the complete author line-up for Horrorfind Weekend! Dead Sea! Clickers III for Kindle and Nook! An update on the much-delayed Of Keene Interest newsletter! And more…
In case you haven’t heard, the Rapture is supposed to occur this Saturday, May 21, 2011. To celebrate this momentous occasion, you should buy a copy of Take The Long Way Home (available in paperback, Kindle or Nook). Take The Long Way Home is, of course, my own take on the Rapture, as seen through the eyes of three protagonists — an Atheist, a Jew, and a Gay man, all of whom get left behind (as per Christian doctrine) when the Rapture occurs, and find themselves stuck in the world’s biggest post-apocalyptic traffic jam. Buy one today!
Kindle editions and old-fashioned paperbacks can be found HERE. Go forth and spend your digital money!
How to summarize the last two weeks? Well, the annual World Horror Convention in Austin, Texas was one of the best conventions I’ve ever attended in my life. I posted my thoughts on it (during an unscheduled stay in Memphis) , and also posted a whole bunch of pics from the four-day event.
Meanwhile, Entombed sold out (as predicted) and is shipping now. The Last Zombie trade paperback arrived in stores (snag one tomorrow during Free Comic Book Day). Take The Long Way Home and A Gathering of Crows were released on Kindle (Nook and Sony editions forthcoming later this month). Issue #11 of Shroud Magazine is also available, and contains the latest installment of my Seminal Screams column.
Filming began in Baton Rouge for Ghoul, and Nolan Gould and Barry Corbin joined the cast! I made a new free book soundtrack to accompany Jack’s Magic Beans. Dorchester Publishing continued to be douche-bags, but that’s okay, because now we are armed with attorneys!
Over at The Keenedom, Livia Llewellyn and William Ollie were the latest authors to get forums. Please take a moment to welcome them. Other topics of interest include: “What F.U.K.U. means to you“, the latest nonsense from Borders’ CEO, and the proper use of Brodart book covers.
Mary’s visiting this weekend, and I’m spending time with my boys for a few days next week before heading to the set of Ghoul, so updates will continue to be sporadic. Go read a book!
By now, you know that Deadite Press is in the process of bringing 90% of my books back into print? If you are a bookseller or library, you’ve ordered them for your store via Ingram? If you’re a fan, you’ve purchased trade paperbacks of Urban Gothic, A Gathering of Crows, Take The Long Way Home, Jack’s Magic Beans, Clickers, and Clickers II, or Kindle editions of Urban Gothic and Clickers II?
Good. Because starting next week, they unleash the second wave with forthcoming trade paperback editions of Tequila’s Sunrise, Darkness On The Edge Of Town, Dead Sea, Castaways, and Kill Whitey, and Kindle editions of Jack’s Magic Beans, Clickers, Clickers 3, Darkness On The Edge Of Town, Dead Sea, Castaways, A Gathering of Crows, and Take The Long Way Home. (The Kindle edition of Kill Whitey will be offered via Cemetery Dance later this year, and the trade paperback of Clickers 3 is available via Delirium Books).
That will take us into summer. Nook and other digital editions will follow shortly. Editions of Dark Hollow, Ghost Walk, and a special movie tie-in edition of Ghoul will come in the fall. Late in the year and into early 2012, we’ll see Earthworm Gods, The Rising, City of the Dead, and their associated short story collections.
And then I’ll have a few surprises in store…
Before Dorchester melted down, A Gathering of Crows was on track to become what might have been my best-selling title ever, possibly even out-doing The Rising. A stand-alone novel, it’s the second book to feature Levi Stoltzfus, an ex-Amish Magus and occult detective.
As they have with Urban Gothic, Jack’s Magic Beans, Take The Long Way Home, and Clickers II, the nice folks at Deadite Press have brought it back into print. Click here to order a trade paperback for just $11. Up next from Deadite – Dead Sea, Tequila’s Sunrise, Castaways, and Darkness On The Edge of Town.
