News from under the isolator ...

I'm very honored to announce that a story of mine was selected for inclusion in The Weird, a mammoth anthology of some of the best weird fiction of all time. This will be released in May of next year.

Weird Fiction Review has named The Great Lover "Weird Book of the Year!"

D.F. Lewis' very thoughtful real-time review of The Great Lover can be found here.

My essay on supernatural literature and what's wrong with Todorov's definition of "the fantastic" is now available in the print version of The Weird Fiction Review #2, edited by S.T. Joshi and published by Centipede Press. Centipede will also be releasing a multi-volume collection of my novels, essays, and stories next year ... more on that later.

It's likely that a new novel from your reporter will be appearing from Chomu Press in 2012, and a new short story of mine has been chosen for their upcoming Dadaoism anthology.

And the Kafka blog is already up to aphorism #20.

Many happy returns of the season to everyone, and thank you for your continued attention and interest!
