Des has just begun his real-time review of Nightscript II, starting off with the lead story, my own “The Carnival Arrives in Darkness.” The page for the Nightscript II review is HERE. You’ll need to scroll down to see what Des thinks of each story in the comments below.

I plan to check back, day by day, and see what he thinks of the rest of the book! For now, I thank Des for his remarks on my contribution.

Recent Happenings, August 2016 Edition

A few things that are happening recently:

My debut collection The Lure of Devouring Light passed the 90 day mark. I’d stay it’s still being well-received, and more people seem to be discovering it every day. Here are links to the two latest reviews of the book:

https://griffinwords.com/2016/08/08/john-boden-reviews-lure-of-devouring-light-on-ginger-nuts-of-horror/

https://griffinwords.com/2016/08/05/lure-reviewed-for-hellnotes-by-brian-sammons/

I just received advance electronic proofs of two books in which my stories will appear:

Eternal Frankenstein, coming from Word Horde and edited by Ross E. Lockhart, will include my novelette “The Human Alchemy.”

Nightscript #2, edited by C.M. Muller, will be led off by my short story “The Carnival Arrives by Night.”

Also, I completed final edits on my story to appear in the next Lovecraft eZine, issue #38. That story is “Endure Within a Dying Frame.”

Most recently, I received word that my submission has just been accepted for a nifty, brag-worthy anthology coming next year, but I don’t yet have the go-head to announce specifics.

Lastly, I will be appearing on the Lovecraft eZine video chat this Sunday, August 14. Read about that HERE.

That’s all for now!
