+ SMALL BITES TO BENEFIT CHARLES L. GRANT
Another new flash horror fiction anthology, Small Bites, is a charity book being put together in order to benefit the masterful dark fantasy writer Charles L. Grant, who is suffering from chronic pulmonary disease. All the stories in Small Bites are not only under 500 words — they also all involve teeth or eating or mouths in some weird way. My contribution, “Screwy Louis,” will appear in the book alongside writers like Matthew Costello, F. Paul Wilson, Mark McLaughlin, Jeff Strand and about 100 more!

+ FLASHSHOT ANTHOLOGY
If you love flash fiction as much as I do, then you probably already subscribe to the free FlashShot Daily service, which delivers a new short-short of science fiction, fantasy, or horror every day to your inbox. If not, I highly recommend it for your daily dose of the strange. Ten of my contributions to FlashShot appear in the new FlashShot Anthology, which collects the first year of the digest in one volume. It’s available NOW as an e-book from Fictionwise and a print edition will soon be available at Shocklines Bookstore, if not directly from CyberPulp Publishing’s media providing service at Lulu.com.

+ I’M HONORED
You should all pick up the just published collection, The Year’s Best Fantasy & Horror XVII, edited by Ellen Datlow, Gavin Grant, and Kelly Link. And not just because my poem (from Bare Bone #4) received Honorable Mention in the back. It continues to be one of the best collections of horror fiction published every year, and it’s thicker than a log, so you get a lot of contemporary classics for the price of admission.
+ GRAVE MARKINGS SELLS OUT
My publisher, Delirium Books, reports that my Stoker Award-winning first novel, Grave Markings: The Tenth Anniversary Edition has now SOLD OUT in all editions. I still have a handful of signed/limited hardcovers available that I’m willing to part with. If interested, PayPal $75 to firstname.lastname@example.org (or inquire about other payment methods) and I’ll personalize your book with an Arnzen “freestyle tattoo” drawing on the page facing the signing page. Orders also include a FREE signed copy of my trade paperback short story collection, Fluid Mosaic AND a BONUS signed cover flat of the Dell/Abyss paperback original from 1994! Postage included.
