Strong Tragedy, Lingering Power

Review of my Apex Magazine short story Child, Funeral, Thief, Death:

“this character playing a game and finding little fulfillment in it but playing anyway, because the alternatives are equally unsatisfying and, whatever happens, he has his sensitivity to fall back on. An interesting story, with a strong tragedy and a lingering power.”

Child, Funeral, Thief, Death

My story ‘Child, Funeral, Thief, Death’ is out today in issue 76 of Apex Magazine.

This sort-of coming-of-age story, sort of exploration of morality (or the lack thereof) was the inspiration for my (as yet unpublished) novel ‘Rosewater’.

Even More Monkey Business…now with added Nosferatu

First, Nosferatu in India Ink. This is an old painting, but I still like it, so I’m adding it here apropos of nothing.

Next, another review and recommendation of my story The Monkey H0use:

It’s qualified, but any paragraph that mentions me and Ligotti in the same sentence…I’ll take it as praise, thank you very much.

Also.

My friend Zen Cho has a story up at Kaleidotrope called ‘Monkey King, Faerie Queen’

No, we did not coordinate. Just one of those coincidences.
