Eternal Frankenstein Book Trailer

The Eternal Frankenstein anthology, edited by Ross E. Lockhart and coming very soon from Word Horde, now has a trailer video.

Eternal Frankenstein can be preordered from Word Horde or Amazon, and will soon be available through many other outlets. I’m about halfway through reading the book myself, and really enjoying the variety of approaches to the subject of Mary Shelley’s incredible creation.

Eternal Frankenstein Will Look Like This

Editor/Publisher Ross E. Lockhart posted this photo of Elinor Phantom with a copy of the Eternal Frankenstein hardcover. This is important for three reasons:

1. Elinor is awesome.

2. This means the book is real and will be out in the world soon.

3. The photo reveals how great the hardcover looks.

See?

Lure Reviewed on Teleread by Paul StJohn Mackintosh

Paul StJohn Mackintosh has just posted an in-depth review of The Lure of Devouring Light on Teleread.

lure-1

If you want the tl;dr version, here’s how it was distilled down to its minimum essence by my publisher:

“Griffin is a craftsman of the highest order… Highly recommended.”

But really, you should read the whole thing. I enjoyed seeing a reviewer mention one of the less-discussed stories in the book, “The Jewel in the Eye,” which is also one of my own favorites. It also pleases me to see yet another reviewer call out “The Black Vein Runs Deep” as a highlight.

My thanks to Paul StJohn Mackintosh and Telereads for the REVIEW.
