The Wolf Dude Presents...

BLOODY OCTOBER

Or, in font other than webdings:

BLOODY OCTOBER

A collection of chilling tales for the haunted season.


Which for the uninitiated contains my story 'Dead Parachutes' - the one with the zombie Dolly Parton impersonators, a retired superhero, a psychotic gnome, and a shopping cart named Fred. It is available at all good book stores. Actually, it isn't - but I've always wanted to say that. It is up on Amazon though. Which in its own way is a very good book store.

Anyhow, this fabulous book also contains a story by the wonderful and talented Aaron A. Polson - if you haven't read anything of his yet, then I recommend (again!) Reciprocity, which was published in The Battered Suitcase. Plus, there's a wee something from our esteem Editor Christopher Allan Death, and also tales from Christopher Fulbright, Rob Rosen, Lawrence Dagstine, Tom Johnstone, Karen L Newman, Sam Leng, and Kris Ashton.

Thanks, Michael.

I'm so getting this. It's on my next big ol' book list.

Also, it looks quite fetching with Wolfgang beside it, doesn't it?
