I'll bet some of these releases will be terrific. I will definitely get each of these stories/novellas/apocryphal histories as Robert releases them every couple of weeks through February. I've really dug Lee's writing, and this announcement of 666ties is right up my alley.
 
The  Top Forty is full  of superheroes, a storm is hitting Memphis, and Otis Redding — aka The Mississippi Kite — thinks maybe he needs one less job, or one less boss. The woman behind the Doctor Who theme becomes the first-ever first superstar DJ after accidentally inventing rave culture. Teen proto-hackers and witches from New Jersey fight robots from the future bent on destroying Bob Dylan before he gets The Beatles stoned for the first time. Boy scouts with psychic powers go to Vietnam — or is it summer camp? Girl scouts with magic powers journey deep beneath The Other Kansas City to wage war against the worm and find out where babies come from. JFK and Saddam Hussein wage an amphetamine-fueled battle against strangely familiar aliens across the Paris of the Middle East. Connie St. Claire, glamorous celebrity superhero, has a secret identity with its own secret identity. Philip K. Dick is going to lose his job writing video games unless Bruce Lee can save his bacon or the world ends first.  Ayn Rand’s and L. Ron Hubbard’s magick megachurches battle for the soul of Los Angeles and the Ad Man’s ass. And one by one, all the girls in the world are walking into wardrobes and walls and televisions and mirrors and holes in the ground and never coming back.

From Robert N. Lee, these are the worlds of 666ties, a genre-melting, history-hashing year by year backwards trip through ten different nineteen-sixties that never were.

Gotta' call it like I see it. It's even worth (ughhh) -- de-lurking -- to share the good news!

It would sure be great to see Brian Keene's new mass-market release of THE CAGE overtake Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

I haven't read either book, but I'm betting The Cage will entertain me more.

I found these to be very amusing.

Come on, Bram, seeing your name in print should be enough. Set the bar lower. In the future, people will pay other people to read the vampire stories they write.

Cool. My current favorite horror forum, Horror Drive-In, has a favorable review of HISSERS. Ryan C. Thomas has been around my corners of the web for a long time but I've never read him! It makes me feel like a real jerk. I have a copy of HISSERS, but I need to get to reading it -- sooner than later.

(Just FYI, my all-time favorite horror forum, The Lost and The Damned Forums, has been gone so long that I barely remember it. I'd probably have to use the Wayback Machine to have any chance of finding a trace of it. Actually, come to think of it, David Wilbanks had a terrific one I used to lurk in, too. Good times.)
 
Excellent review of Ryan Thomas' HISSERS over at Horror Drive-In: "So, if you are the kind of reader, like myself, who is sick to death of zombies, I recommend Hissers. It has strong characters that you will like and care about. It's also a unique approach to the walking dead. And if you DO like zombie fiction, I promise that you'll love it."

I'm not a huge fan of this FREE Lunchtime Reading thing. However, I am a big fan of the writer, Cullen Bunn. This is probably worth a peek.
 
#FearItself: The Deep (2011) #1 is today’s FREE Lunchtime Reading. Which of the Worthy do you think was strongest? #readcomics

Gregory Fisher always seems to have the best general horror news and reminders.
 
I plan to watch this tomorrow night (assuming I don't fall asleep at the computer again). I'll get to see it on my new netbook (I call her Tiamat). If all goes well, I'll report the winners afterward.

Now that I've read through most of Life As An Artist In Repose (I've liked it), I'll find it more interesting to read Dickerson's articles at the Apex website when they are current.
 
Here's my new ebook, a collection of articles about being an artist: http://www.darkstormcreative.com/my-ebook/. Here's my latest artist article too for Apex Book Company, "Looking back to look forward": http://blog.apexbookcompany.com/2012/03/19/looking-back-to-look-forward/

If you like articles and books about "the writing life" -- especially in the small press -- you'll almost certainly like this collection of articles about "the artistic life." I found the long skim through this one last night to be satisfying, and I'm looking forward to reading all the way through.
 
I created a page on my site for my ebook, that has links to both the Amazon and Barnes & Noble versions. Check it out, and pick up a copy today:
