Author. Dream Weaver. Visionary. Plus Actor. So long as you're cool with discovering just how dull I really am, I welcome adds here, on FB, LJ etc.

My novels The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart and The Enterprise of Death are available in a variety of languages. I have it on admittedly shaky authority that they are charming. My third novel, The Folly of the World, will be released in December of 2012--no word yet on how charming it will be, but I'm sure I'll be the first to know. I have short fiction free for the reading at Beneath Ceaseless Skies and Brain Harvest, among sundry other places--a full (-ish, depending on how slack I've been about updating it) list of my published works can be found on this here website.

As for Good Reads, I'm only going to include bo

Lovecraft! Lovecraft! Lovecraft!

Popping in after a ridiculously long hiatus to make a couple of quick announcements before going back down into deep cover...and hey, both'em of relate to Old Uncle Howie. Will try to be better about updating this dusty site, but for now a quick entry on the fly'll have to do.

First up is my editorial debut, Letters to Lovecraft. It's an anthology of original stories written in response to HPL...

A War in Crimson Embers by Alex   Marshall
"I want to write a proper review eventually but for now I just want to say this series is the best "casual inclusion" of lgbt characters and women in a fantasy I've seen in any sort of media and might have skewed my standards now"
The Children of Old Leech by Ross E. Lockhart
"So I actually haven't read anything by Laird Barron, and didn't really know who he was until I'd read the first bit of this and went to look him up. I picked this collection up on the strength of the title (which is great) and the inclusion of sto..." Read more of this review »

Revisiting Sala's work and really, really digging it. When I was younger I appreciated the great art, obviously, but failed to appreciate just how great everything else about it really is. Recommended.

Harvest moon tonight, which makes it the perfect time to pick up Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones (and listen to Blue Öyster Cult). Of course, *anytime* is the perfect time for Stephen's work (same with BÖC), but listen: this might just be my favorit ...more
Jesse Bullington answered a question about Danse Macabre:
Danse Macabre by Jesse Bullington
Yes, this is the French edition of The Enterprise of Death. It is translated by Laurent Philibert-Caillat, who also translated The Sad Tale of the Brother Grossbart.
A Crown for Cold Silver by Alex   Marshall
"So yeah.

I went into this warily. A lot of ~mercenary fantasy~ nowadays is so try-hard and often fails to be casually humorous/clever and blithely bloody.

Well...my wariness was completely unjustified. I had as swell a time reading this as I did a..." Read more of this review »

By turns breathtaking, beautiful, and brutal, The Devourers is one of the finest novels I've read in ages. A triumph of elegant writing. A brilliant inversion and reinvention of werewolf mythologies from around the globe. A tragic romance. A historic ...more

“Shadowy figures watched them from doorways, as shadowy figures are wont to fucking do.”
Jesse Bullington, The Folly of the World

“Manfried imagined the stars to be jewels shining in the depths of a long-sealed crypt and, drifting off, he almost glimpsed himself prying open the lid of night and stuffing his pockets with the glittering gems.”
Jesse Bullington, The Sad Tale of the Brothers Grossbart

“Where are you going?"
"Home," Awa said numbly, getting up and pushing open the door.
"As the devil told the sinner," the necromancer called after her, "you ARE home.”
Jesse Bullington, The Enterprise of Death

Allyson Shaw I loved your story in Chizine-- brilliant use of POV and a moving mediation on death and love.
