AUDIOVILE — an “album of flash fiction” that’s read aloud and set to freaky music — should be available on CD soon from Raw Dog Screaming Press. I’ll be posting links to samples and more info shortly, but if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on this disc, keep your eyes on the Audiovile page on my website, where I’ll be posting preordering information and links as soon as it comes in.
Horror World just posted the first review, calling it “pure genius…with more than enough laugh-out-loud, make you cringe moments to recommend it.” And here’s what award-winning horror author Gary Braunbeck had to say:
“This collection of recordings will disturb and entertain you for more reasons than the obvious; remember the first time you heard The Doors’ ‘The End’ and Jim Morrison’s long, chilling soliloquy in the middle? Or the An American Prayer album — an audio suicide note set to music? The pieces on Audiovile often put me in mind of these moments, because they disturbed me on the same, visceral level — but because these pieces are based on the works of Mike Arnzen, there’s also a lot of simple, weird fun to be had, as well, and the musicianship displayed throughout is flawless. A genuine one-of-kind recording.”
