Hmm. I announced this in various other places but forgot to do so here. Which says something about this place, or how I think (or don't think) of it.

Anyway. New, short book:

In the U.S.A., six million people call themselves Jews, but 22% of them say they have no religion. Many of those are atheists. In what sense are they Jews? I say, in no sense at all.

My newest book is a horror novella called Slit. It's filled with gore and kinky sex and a nice seasoning of humor.

But it's not all like that. There are whole paragraphs that are entirely normal. I should have used that for the blurb: "Contains some paragraphs that are quite normal."

My latest book, Dust Net, is now out in e-book form. It's all about the future of surveillance and privacy and communication and microscopic gadgets floating in the breeze.

Now that the e-book versions of Dust Net are done, I'll do a print version. I already have three utterly unsolicited blurbs for the back cover. I'm not quite sure whether I should use them, though. Here they are:

"Gripping! Terrifying! Ripped from the headlines! Brilliant!" –– A. Spouse

"Er, sounds interesting. I’ll, um, have to check it out." –– A. Friend.

"Get that book out of my face!" –– A. Stranger

This site is now unreadable.

This is the the latest book that Leonore and I have helped another author put out. It's CRY PURPLE, by Christine McDonald, in the St. Louis, MO area. Leonore edited the book, and I did the cover. As the subtitle says, it's the amazing story of her long, hard journey from almost 20 years of prostitution, crack addiction, prison, and homelessness to total blindness, motherhood, and happiness. It's now out in both paperback and e-book, and she has sold close to 70 copies in four days. She will have a TV appearance in KC at the end of this month. Read all about the book here.

Mitt Romney has a binder full of women, and Tagg Romney has a binder full of macho. Somewhere.

A social and political satire disguised as a comic novel about zombies and pickles. Or possibly the other way around.

They’re back, and they want to eat your brains. Again.

“Go in there.”
“Hell, no. I’m going to send someone stupid in there with a pickle.”

It’s brains served with a side of pickles, hold the mayo. A terrifying tale of parents, children, brothers, sisters, friends, bosses, employees, wives, ex–wives, friends’ wives, Republicans, studly bacteria, zombies, tentacles, politics, religion, giant screaming earth mothers, and the armpit and other regions of Hell.

And pickles.

I thought I'd experiment with the free-book gimmick. Er, marketing technique.
