Horror Garage #4 is out, and includes my story, "Here
Come The Whistle Men," snuck in there between the likes of
John Shirley and Bruce Holland Rogers and others, as well
as a column on Kurt Russell by Norm Partridge, book reviews
by Fiona Webster, and a bunch of music-oriented reviews. Pick

Extremes 4: Darkest Africa, the CD anthology coming
out from Lone Wolf Publications, is coming together. I have
a story in it, "Children in the Moonless Night," which will
include a "story video" put together by a Bronx buddy and
video artist, Joey "Bones." (You know how it is in the Bronx....sometimes
it's better not to go by real last names. I'd tell you my
Bronx name, but then, I'd have to kill you.) If you'd like
to check out the cover (GAK-a-licious), line-up (impressive!)
and interior art, check out the publisher's page at: http://www.lonewolfpubs.com/
(Click "Coming Soon")
In one of the more stunning acceptances I've had in a while
(on a par with, like, selling a book), I sold a story to the
Dreamhaven Bookstore anthology. Contributors include: Gene
Wolfe, Ramsey Campbell, Jack Williamson, Harlan Ellison, Melanie
Tem and others. You gotta be kidding me.
Another story, "Devoured by Her Enigmatic Smile," has been
accepted for the Tooth and Claw anthology to be published
by Lone Wolf. I'm hoping to work with yet another video artist
on an "extra" for the CD collection (don't want to burn Bones
Dead Cat Bounce, the chapbook (still available from
Space and Time, soon to be a major small press production
starring a cast of, well, a little over a dozen....), was
reviewed in the December issue of the British magazine BIZARRE.
This is, in my opinion, the best magazine in the world. It
keeps me informed about everything I want to know about the
universe in general and humanity in particular. I haven't
seen this review yet, but I understand it's a good one. At
last, I feel like I've arrived. Where, I don't exactly know.
But I've arrived.
Rogue Worlds has published an original short story of mine,
"Smoking Mirror Reflection." You can read it at: http://www.specficworld.com/story1.html.
"When Mom Changed," a light horror story, will be appearing
in Scars, an anthology benefiting the Red Cross for
the WTC disaster. All money from the book will be going to
the charity -- authors and printer have waived all fees. Contact

Hi. We were supposed to update this site sooner, to at least
acknowledge the world has changed, but there was a bit of
a computer problem and we're only getting to it now. By now
everyone we know also knows Linda and I are fine, at least
in body. We grieve with those who lost loved ones on September
11th. For anyone wishing to participate in the recovery process,
please visit the following link for relevant information:
In one of those bizarre scheduling coincidences, Linda and
I were scheduled to do a reading in the East Brunswick Barnes
& Noble on September 11th. It has been rescheduled for
October 24. It will take place at 753 Route 18, East Brunswick,
NJ 08816. You can call them at 732-432-0100 for travel directions.
I was also scheduled to do a reading at the Housing Works
Café on the 21st of September. That and the whole New York
Is Book Country was cancelled. Instead, I'll be reading with
Alexa DeMonterice at the Café on October 27th at 6:00PM, located
at 126 Crosby Street. Call 212-334-3324.
Judy Comeau did an audio interview with me at the Horrorfind
convention a couple of months ago. You can find it at: http://www.countgore.com/vault.htm.
Be safe. Stay strong.
Thanks to Shikhar Dixit, Linda and I will be doing a reading
Tuesday, September 11, at Barnes & Noble Booksellers,
755 Route 18 (Southbound), East Brunswick, NJ 08816. You can
call them at (732)432-0100 for travel directions.
I'll also be doing a reading as part of the New York Is
Book Country event in NYC later in September. I'll be at the
Housing Works Cafe on the 21st, one of four writers reading
between 7 and 9. Check the NYIBS site for details: http://www.nyisbookcountry.com/schedule.asp.
"Hot Thing," originally published in the collection Painfreak
and reprinted on the site Horrorfind.com, has been published
in the anthology Best of Horrorfind, available at:
This anthology was very well-received at the Horrorfind Convention
Black Orchids From Aum, the collection of dark fantasy
stories set in the banished city of Aum, where anything can
be bought, is finally available in trade paperback, from Silverlake
Judy Comeau, TombKeeper for the Creature Feature Tomb, had
some very nice things to say about The Beast That Was Max.
Check out her review at: http://www.countgore.com/tomb.htm.
She also did an audio interview on the run (as we were stalked
by Bruce Campbell fans), which will eventually find its way
on ole Count Gore's Creature Feature page (http://www.countgore.com/dungeon.htm).
More to follow. By the way, young ladies with necks, beware.
Count Gore likes 'em. Necks, that is. Ask Linda. There's pictures
of her with him attached to her neck, which I'll probably
post next month...
"Here Come the Whistle Men," a short horror story, has been
sold to Horror Garage and is scheduled to appear next year.
"Mister Wiggley Wants A Hug," a comedic, vaguely erotic
horror story I wrote for M. Christian's book tour reading
some months ago, has been sold to the UK horror humor magazine,
"The Unborn," a short horror story, has been accepted to
the anthology Dreaming of Angels, a benefit project
for Down's Syndrome charity. The hardcover will be released
from Cosmos Books early 2002, with a paperback version from
Prime to follow in time for WHC 2002 in Chicago.
The Leisure edition of Road to Hell is scheduled
for Fall, 2003. More to come.
In sadder news, the fantasy anthology Mother, Maiden,
Crone - Three Faces of the Goddess, has been cancelled.
Oh well, back to the marketing grind for that story.
Brief Horrorfind Convention Report
Thanks to Brian Keene and all the folks who worked so hard
to organize a wonderful con. I had a lot of "wonderful moments"
with writers, at readings, in hallways and rooms, etc., but
here are a few in no particular order that'll stay with me:
Thanks to the folks who showed up at my reading. Can we do this
again? (except for the elevator part....)
- Kelly Laymon's mini skirt (the result of a lost bet, I
understand - the only question remaining is what would Feo
have looked like if he's lost the bet?)
- The Elevator (this experience, by itself, is filled with
"moments" not quite in the same category as the rest of
the con -- the "stop;" the faces of the claustrophobic passengers
-- Linda, her sister, and Rain -- who could not believe
they were indeed trapped in a packed, stuck elevator; the
vanishing of air; the realization that the alarm was not
working; Brian calling 911 to get to the hotel front desk
to tell the cheerfully disbelieving clerk that, yes, your
hotel does indeed have a stuck elevator; prying the elevator
doors open with a guy named "Rock;" pulling people out while
the hotel security guy looked on approvingly -- thanks so
much for the support, fella)
- Nick Kaufman's "naked" reading
- Death visiting the Garden State Horror Writers reading
and the look on Drew's face as he looked up from his story
to see Death walking through the door
- Keene's "acquisition" of a wheelchair
- Feo's motivational sermon
- "Doug Clegg" and "Jack Ketchum" in a conversational talk/panel
-- like listening to two masters talking and fooling around
at the bar
- the Dallas party
The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, Fourteenth Annual
Collection, edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling, has
been released by St. Martin's Griffin, and I was thrilled
to find that three of my stories received honorable mentions:
"Born From The Womb of Forever," Enigmatic Electronic,
"Bui Doi," Indigenous Fiction 5, and "I Love You And
There Is Nothing You Can Do About It," from the collection.
In addition, the collection I Love You And There Is Nothing
You Can Do About It, as well the chapbook Dead Cat
Bounce, were mentioned in the introduction, as well as
a belated mention of 1999's Road to Hell novel from
Necro; I was happy to see proof I actually existed last year.
Space and Time magazine did terrific as well, with
Charlee Jacob's "White Moths" poem receiving an honorable
mention (selected by poetry editor Linda Addison), as well
as Patricia Russo's "Le Demon Riant," S&T Spring;
Philip Thompson, "Lonesome Mary," S&T 92; James
Van Pelt, "Road Decoy," S&T Spring; Katherine Woodbury,
"Golden Hands," S&T Spring. Charlee Jacob's sf
story,"White Phantom," S&T Spring, also received
an honorable mention from Gardner Dozois in The Year's
Best Science Fiction. It's a great feeling as fiction
editor to have these stories recognized.
See what you're missing? Why haven't you subscribed!!!!!
In media news, I was interviewed for the local Bronx Cablevision
news channel on Friday, July 13th, which was quite an experience
since the reporter, Marlie Hall, came to the house lugging
fifty pounds of equipment and did the whole thing herself.
An online version is available HERE.
The TV version ran for nearly a day every half hour on several
different news broadcasts (they make a new half hour show
about every four hours, using/expanding previous features
and stories while integrating new ones), so it was like having
a commercial for The Beast That Was Max. The timing
-- Friday the 13th -- was also perfect for a horror segment.
Watching Marlie work inspired the creation of a reporter character
which I hope to include in an upcoming novel. I wasn't sure
if she'd survive the story (you know how horror writers are),
and when I told Marlie my reservations, she informed me she
knew karate and asked if that would help.
I guess it will.
You haven't bought The Beast That Was Max from Leisure
yet? Why not? Don't you know they tear the covers off those
books in a month and return them to the publisher for credit?

"Dead Cat Bounce" was favorably reviewed in the May, 2001
issue of Asimov's Science Fiction, by that beloved
(by me, certainly) and well-read friend of the small press,
Paul Di Filippo. The money quote is as follows: "This poignant
story manages to mix Don Marquis' Mehitable with Karloff's
Mummy in a charming creepy-funny fashion, a tone captured
perfectly in numerous B&W drawings by a mysterious artist
known only as GAK." -- Paul Di Filippo, Asimov's Science
Fiction, May, 2001.
Black Orchids From Aum also received a favorable
review from Anita Jo Stafford at the Simply Dreams website.
The review can be accessed at: http://simplydreams.net/seb/review/orchid.html.
It reads, in part: "This book is unique and ingenious. Depending
on what the reader wants to take from the stories, they can
be anything from dark fantasies to warnings of what could
be in a world with too much excess. This book is highly recommended."
Advance orders for the trader paperback edition of Black
Orchids From Aum can be ordered from http://www.silverlakepublishing.com/catalog/aum.html,
where various electronic editions are available right now.
You can also order
it from Amazon.com.
In further review news (some months you sell stories, others
you get them reviewed, and then there are the months when
nothing happens except rejection), BLUE FOOD came up with
the following on a pair of linked short shorts by yours truly
in the British anthology Nasty Snips: "The finest piece
to be found in this unsettling collection of unsavory vignettes
would have to be "Boxes" and "Bags" by Gerard Daniel Houarner,
a surreal and poetic indictment against the fallacies of desire
and the shortcomings of human nature. To say this dulcet and
philosophically detached paean to compartmentalized grief
is out of place in this gathering is an understatement. But
existing as it does--a precious jewel amongst the bitter dregs
of sociopathic cravings--makes this anthology a recommended
Stunningly, the Space and Time chapbook Dead Cat Bounce,
illustrated by GAK, is on the Horror Writers Association's
Stoker final ballot for outstanding short story. Go figure!
Even better, go
buy it: a steal for five bucks (plus postage), featuring
a genuine award-nominated story and drop dead dead cat art
(so to speak) from the legendary GAK. Check it out here!

To my delight, photographs I took of New York City during
a recent snow storm will be used as the cover and assorted
other graphic material for Lone Wolf Publications' upcoming
Peter Crowther CD collection, COLD COMFORTS AND OTHER FIRESIDE
MYSTERIES. Scheduled for May release, it will include the
usual multi-media mix of material Lone Wolf Publications is
famous for, as well as a healthy sampling of Peter Crowther's
fiction (which is the point of it all). Check out the COLD
COMFORTS page (my professional photographer friend is laughing)
Some of you may have seen the following notice in various
newsletters, but if not, please read very carefully, check
out the online statement, and consider the consequences for
the writers and artists you like. If you're a professional
in the field, read it twice. I sent in my money.
ELLISON CONTINUES LEGAL FIGHT
Harlan Ellison is continuing his legal battle against a
number of parties, both large and small, over alleged copyright
infringement involving works posted on the Internet. Among
the defendants in the suit is the corporate giant America
In a lengthy statement recently posted online, Ellison said,
"AOL, Remarq/Critical Path and a host of self-serving individuals
seem to think that they can allow the dissemination of writers'
work on the Internet without authorization, and without payment,
under the banner of "free use" or the idiot slogan "Information
must be free." A writer's work is not information: it is our
creative property, our livelihood and our families' annuity.
Why should any artist, of any kind, continue creating new
work, eking out an existence in pursuit of a career, following
the muse, when little Internet thieves, rodents without ethic
or understanding, steal and steal and steal, conveniencing
themselves and "screw the author"? What we're looking at is
the death of the professional writer."
Ellison goes on to discuss instances of Internet "piracy"
committed against himself and other writers, involving stories,
books, even complete libraries, and discusses his 10-month
legal battle -- a campaign he's now named "Kick Internet Piracy."
Ellison says the fight has been an expensive one, and that
he's had to sell off certain possessions in order to pay attorney
fees. He adds that the battle will get even more expensive
now that the trial is about to enter the discovery phase.
Contributions of any size are being accepted. Checks should
be made out to attorney M. Christine Valada and mailed to:
Kick Internet Piracy, P.O. Box 55935, Sherman Oaks, CA 91413.

This is a narrative poem, or perhaps it's a graphic chapbook.
Interspersed throughout the whole story are bits and pieces
of satire or commentary on humans, religion, process, and
other things. The artwork is complementary and perfect in
execution. The whole package is quite nicely done and I'd
