October Newsletter

Fall Update.

Happy early Halloween. Thanks to everybody who signed up for this newsletter. The news is:

I've got a couple of stories coming out:

"Fenstad's End," the story that in part inspired my second novel, The Missing, is up for pre-order at: http://www.cemeterydance.com/page/CDP/PROD/_cd059

"The Great Pumpkin Arrives at Last" from Doorways Magazine. You can order it here: http://www.doorwayspublications.com/backissues.htm. The magazine also features an interview with me, conducted by Nicholas Kaufmann.


A phone interview, in which there is much rambling, but might be useful to people looking to break into publishing at the new site, Cult Pop: www.cult-pop.com

A roundtable interview at ThrillerFest: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/stations/AuthorsOnAir/RomanceRadio/2008/10/16/ThrillerFest-Thursday-Jim-Rollins-Kathryn-Fox-Jordan-Dane-Vicki-Petterssen-and-Sarah-Langan-

Also, The Missing was nominated for an IHG Award. Winners will be announced online at www.horroraward.org on Halloween. So wish me luck.

If any of you are looking for recommendations, the below nominees make a fine list:
* Grin of the Dark. Ramsey Campbell (PS Publishing)
* Generation Loss. Elizabeth Hand (Small Beer Press)
* The Missing. Sarah Langan (HarperCollns)
* Season of the Witch. Natasha Mostert (Dutton)
* The Terror. Dan Simmons (Little, Brown & Company)

Hand's GENERATION LOSS won the SJA Award this year (I served as one of the jurors), and Campbell's GRIN was one of my favorites.

More to come. Have a great Halloween!
