|Bandersnatch, edited by Paul Tremblay and Sean Wallace, is out now! The anthology contains my story "Summon Bind Banish", which was workshopped in our very own online multigenre workshop last year.|
The book also got a neat review in Publishers Weekly, excerpted below:
"It may or may not be frumious, but this original anthology from Tremblay and Wallace positively revels in the “strange, dark, and unpredictable.” Nearly all the thirteen stories have both feet firmly in the avant-garde. Several tilt toward black-humored horror, and even the authors’ bios run to the bizarre. ... This corner of the genre is very much an acquired taste, but for those who dig that funky groove, this anthology more than delivers what it promises."—Publishers Weekly.

So for the Sci-Fi followers, what do you think of Matheson? Is the book "Dreams" worth reading or should I not bother?

For those who were involved in the zine scene of the early part of this decade, you may remember a paper litzine of the same name published by Frank Marcopolos (aka Brooklyn Frank). Marcopolos sold the name to J.D. Finch who has turned it into a combination ezine/print zine that does the welome, if unzinely, thing of paying its contributors some small amount.
Anyway, do check it out.
