@daviddunwoody Good one! But wait…that exists! It’s called podcasting…. :-)
@Historiator Hah! I think it would be written in bloodstream of consciousness.
@yvette_tan Gooey! I likes.
I may actually say “Nappy ewe ears” tonight. In advance: I apologize. To the Ewes. Have a great 2013!
“Scaraphilia” is not a word. I hereby coin it. To me it’s “scare” not “scar” but you can pronounce how you want. (Mascaraphilia is weirder).
#2013publishingpredictions The term “covers” will refer not to packaging but to nanobots that cover your eyes during the scary/dirty bits.
#2013publishingpredictions Everyone across the globe will self-publish a memoir. No one will read a single one.
@RL_Stine Fear The Syrup!
RL_Stine Real Fan Letter: Dear R.L. Stine, I love pancakes. Please put pancakes in a Goosebumps book.
#2013publishingpredictions A virus called “Scrabble” will break out and scramble the words on ALL e-readers, computers, phones and tablets.
#2013publishingpredictions Random House will suddenly show up in random homes across the world and start making books. Many will foreclose.
Lots of secret Arnzenian things coming out in 2013. Sign up to my newsletter to be alerted! gorelets.com/about/ New ish in early Jan.
Thanks, @Luke_Tarzian! OWH is THE how-to write horror book to get. Also recommended: Writers Workshop of Horror and Many Genres, One Craft.

@JJJohnsonAuthor Neat! What are “pirate refrigerator poetry magnets”? (Lots of “arr” and “rum” I bet?) Share a photo or link of them?
@DMBimagery “that poet machine of immense rhythm”… I like it!
@lmorgen “Animal morning”…”velvet dance”…I like it!
Here’s my monstrous toast to a Happy New Year! fb.me/tiCTqn4l
@rachaelkelly18 How supercalifragilisticexpialidocious of you! :-)
@_DavidMorrell Yes & tablets ARE ereaders; the ebook though, now means non-linear interactivity w/text. Authors will need production teams.
@GoogleFacts I believe that’s the eyePhone. Wah-wah-wahhhhn.

@scottEweinberg LOL. Yes, a giant stone oven timer. Soup’s on.
@danj2k I still backed up fictionwise library in epub mobi and pdf formats…a big archive but never sure what e-reader I’ll use in future.
After you download all your ebooks from fictionwise (last day to do so!), try Calibre for organizing your collection: calibre-ebook.com
lol @dcrwrites — Maybe you’re righ–––––––––––––
Rest easy. If the world ended tonight, we’d be getting hourly reports from different time zones, just like New Year’s Eve.
Reminder that tomorrow (12/21) is the last day to backup your ebooks from fictionwise:… fb.me/29O4l1tI4
If arriving on the last day on a calendar is all it took to end the world, my kitchen wall would have killed us all years ago.
@JustAfterSunset Go for it, but Krampus doesn’t do it for me. His unholy name sounds too much like a medical ointment.
@HorrorMovies Thanks for the heads-up on The Blob Criterion Edition. A polymorph in hi-def! Cool to see it features an essay by Kim Newman.

I’m running a class on humor in Jan. What was the funniest work of genre fiction you read this year? I’ll let ‘em know.
If you’re dropping Instagram, come find me on Flickr. I won’t say I told you so. flickr.com/photos/gorelet…
Cool @JasonJackMiller ! Thank you for this. The Arnzen Law Library has too many shelves for me to remember it all, so I appreciate.
@marysangiovanni Horror as morality play — definitely. Nice comment. The Exorcist is a perfect case in point.
@IrisBlasi That’s actually a bar’s name in downtown Pittsburgh! A good one, too.
@ChristianUncut LOL. I know! [Betamax — assumed to be a cable tv channel or a SpiderMan villain by 38% of population. :-) ]
@stillwellgray THANK YOU for the great lead! Much appreciated.
Anyone have a lead on a company that can manufacture a short run of 45s (7” vinyl single records)?

PHOBIC is another great @commapress title! Didn’t know it was on kindle - cool. Loved the Matthew Holness story; not done reading it yet.

Heading over to this chat with Jeff Strand tonight (now!). fb.me/22JQyrc9M
@LindsaySmith84 Yeah, that bugged me too. But don’t worry: Baby Masuka New Year will distract everyone from their arrival. :-)
#DexterNotes s7 The provocative title of the season finale actually works on another level: LaGuerta has become the “phallic mother.”

@LeeAllenHoward Thanks Lee! I did to. Caught all sorts of little foreshadows in it when I watched a second time.

@KCeresWright Hey KCW — that thing you asked me about. YES. Send me the pdf at your leisure if I’m not too late.
@ChristianUncut I concur with your article! Thx for the mention, too. My alternate SFPA t-shirt slogan? “My God…It’s full of poems!”
@JesseJSaxon Thanks for the kind comment Jesse. I sleep with all four of the Stoker trophies. It’s like “Weird Sister Wives.”
#DexterNotes 7.11 The Captain’s boat and Baptista’s “retirement” are juxtaposed against Dexter’s “happily ever after” fantasy.
“…when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.” What does it see? A semi-digested donut floating in a pool of coffee.

@LeeAllenHoward Right on… very kind, Lee!
How does one fall over a fiscal CLIFF and then hit a debt CEILING? I believe you’ve mixed your metaphors, world economists.

#DexterNotes 7.10 A very Oedipal episode. Hannah’s father is a substitute for Harry which is a metaphor for control. Sometimes a syringe…
Obviously, you can make your own zombie snowman once it snows. But for Xmas ornaments, this is tops: neatoshop.com/product/Zombie…
TV’s Law and Order is as ubiquitous nightly news. Why hasn’t anyone done a Crime and Chaos spin off or parody yet? Get on that TNT.
@blueberrio Thank you for the inspiring prompt!
Anyone know if the Kindle Fire can run the Readerware Android app and scan barcodes? Could be the ultimate combo for book geeks/librarians.
