And now for something good: Confessions is one of the novels nominated for this year's Shirley Jackson Awards.
A contemporary crime/revenge story that takes a leaf from Rashomon and other multiple-perspective thrillers and mysteries, Confessions has a few twists to surprise even jaded ...

There are only four spots remaining in the LitReactor class on writing horror with substance! Proceeds help support the Shirley Jackson Awards!
This four-week workshop will teach you how to write horror that goes beyond the scares and beyond the gross-out, to compel, challenge, and move the reader.

I want to put together a voting block of fans of horror and weird fiction to completely fill the Hugo ballot next year with works of transgressive horror.

Double bill, live stand-up show of +David Spade and +Aisha Tyler  held in a drive-in theater. I attend three times, for the third arriving late with m'boy. End up parking right in front of Spade, who recognizes me from my previous attendance. Invites us backstage to hang out, end up taking a selfie with Tyler, who uses the photo to start #ethnicenvy  trending on Twitter. Then I wake up. It's a funny hashtag. That Aisha, she's hilarious.

"Two items were presented to me for my inspection within a period of fifteen minutes: first, a copy of THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS, which I had never read... A moment after I looked it over someone showed me a two-page photograph in the current Time of the attempted assassination of the President [Ronald Reagan]. There the wounded, there the Secret Service man with the Uzi machine gun, there all of them on the assassin. My brain had to try to correlate WIND IN THE WILLOWS and that photograph. It could not. In never will be able to. -- Philip K. Dick, Letter to Roger Zelazny. 1981.

I wonder what PKD would have thought of Facebook, Twitter, and G+ feeds, with their constant stream of cognitively dissociated images: LOLcats, genocide, self-promotion, food photos, political screeds.

Also, "LOLCats and Genocide" is the title of an anthology seeking funding on kickstarter in 3... 2...1....

My friend Stacey Bouley is a very talented photographer, and her art career is really picking up steam. Her pictures of Ellis Island, and some self portraits, are featured in the current issue of La Photographie--including the cover image. Check it out.

Yeah, that's what the DCU needs--to go "darker." Reset the clock at http://hasdcdonesomethingstupidtoday.com/ again.
 
Next month will see the debut of Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles. The series will focus on darker, alternate versions of Batman, Superman & Wonder Woman with whole new origin stories (Superman is the son of General Zod).

Has anyone else watched the German film The Silence? It expired on Netflix today, but I finished it up last night and thought it was a very interesting, textured film on grief, guilt, and obsession. The synopsis on IMDB is as much as you'd want to know going into it, though I'll add that one of the main characters is played by Ulrich Thomsen, who plays Kai Proctor on BANSHEE. It's also beautifully shot and acted.
