Lost Signals/Outer Dark

Think Trump’s scary? He’s got nothing on Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing.Lost Signals

In June, PMMP will release a horror/sci-fi anthology, Lost Signals, edited by horror heavyweights Max Booth III and Lori Michelle. The collection features one of my darkest stories, “The Small Hours.”

In the lead-up to the book release, horror podcast The Outer Dark is announcing a new story from the collection in each broadcast. “The Small Hours” was featured in a recent episode, which included a lengthy interview with filmmaker E. Elias Merhige. Thanks for the shout-out.

And keep an ear open for those sweet horror transmissions.

Foliate Oak Literary Magazine

Check out the April issue of Foliate Oak Literary Magazine, a wonderful, student-run journal from Monticello, Arkansas. The April edition features my digital art series, Transportals #1. While you’re there, check out the astonishing, other-worldly artwork of Dave Petraglia.

Gravel Literary Magazine

The January issue of gravel literary magazine, a publication of my MFA brethren at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, features four of my photographs, along with numerous works of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and artwork. This is a great publication, and there is something here for everyone. One of my pieces, “Red 01,” is the “cover” of the January issue.

Stop by and check out the work of 20 talented artists, and the design and editing skills of the publishers (creative writing students who, I can speak from personal experience, are overworked and underfunded) in this thoughtful literary magazine.

Banjo Billy’s Bus is Calling Us

Driver, where are you taking us?June 059

Boulder, of course, where Banjo Billy’s Bus Tour has been a local institution since 2005.

This irreverent blend of history, comedy and darn-good storytelling received some national attention today on NPR. The story was produced by the lovely and talented Grace Hood, of course, and you may recognize another name on a few of the photo credits.

Check out the story, and if you’re in Boulder, take the tour. Even if you’ve lived there for years, you’ll learn new things about the town. Billy (aka John Georgis) is a gifted storyteller and a great personality.

Best of all, take the ghost tour in October, when the air is as crisp and chilling as the stories.
