WB31

Front Cover

My story “Chivaine” will be appearing in the new issue of WEIRDBOOK (#31) from Wildside Press. Here’s a look at the front cover by Dusan Kostic. The back cover will be a piece by the great Stephen E. Fabian, who did all the covers for the original WB run. This issue is sort of a bridge between the magazine’s past and it’s future.

Doug Draa has done an immense job of resurrecting Paul Ganley’s classic weird fantasy mag, and it’s great to be a part of the first issue since 1997. The new issue is slated for an October release.

A brief excerpt: “Chivaine with his silver sword and gleaming mail. Chivaine with his lion eyes and quick limbs. Chivaine on his white horse strung with chains of gold and jewels. Chivaine. Bane of Invaders.”

THE WEIRD MUST FLOW…

Far-Fetched FablesThe fine folks at the FAR-FETCHED FABLES Podcast interviewed me about TALL EAGLE.

They’ve also produced an excellent audio adaptation of my story “The Key To Your Heart Is Made Of Brass” (from YEAR’S BEST WEIRD FICTION), read by the talented Eric Luke. I’m currently working on a novel set in the same world as this story, the weird world of the Potentates of Urbille.

Click over to Far-Fetched Fables, Ep. 60 and enjoy the weirdness…

A brand-new excerpt from THE TESTAMENT OF TALL EAGLE is now available for reading at the Grimdark Magazine website.

This excerpt comes from Chapter 4 – “On the Blood Trail”, wherein Tall Eagle takes the warpath alongside Bear Killer. Here’s a sample:

“We painted our faces death-black, with two red lines on forehead and chin representing the spilled blood of our enemies. We consecrated our shields, arrows, bows, axes, and spears while the women urged us on with the high song of their screaming. In the cool wind of midnight we left the Winter Village and followed Bear Killer into the mountains, moving quiet as snakes through mounds of fallen leaves. The glow of the village fires faded as we marched toward the mountainous country of the Urkis.”

Read the full excerpt right HERE. 

And the complete Chapter 1: “On the Spirit Trail” is still available at BlackGate.com
