Anthology News

I just wanted to let everyone know that SHE NAILED A STAKE THROUGH HIS HEAD: TALES OF BIBLICAL HORROR in which my short story "Jawbone of an Ass" is reprinted has an official release date: October 19. It's also available NOW for pre-order on

"Jawbone of an Ass," of course, first appeared in our second Wyrdsmiths' chapbook, NEW WYRD, which is available for purchase in the sidebar. I've described the story to other people as my IRA/Samson story, but a niftier blurb might go like this: "What would it be like to know that God is absolutely *not* on your side? 'Jawbone of an Ass' is a modern day retelling of the story of Sampson’s first wife (known only as the woman of Timor), who slowly comes to realize the horror of knowing she, through no fault of her own, is on the wrong side of the wrath of angels."

Also, if you happen to be in the Twin Cities area for CONvergence next weekend, you can stop by my editor Tim Lieder's signing at 2:00 pm on Friday, July 2 at CONvergence and pick up an early copy.

Cool! The cover looks good.

I knew the cover image was Jael and Sistera. I mean, everyone knows that. And I thought the painting was by Tiepolo. But it is not, though it's by another 18th century Venetian painter: Jacopa Amigoni.
