Gone Fishing & A New Horror Market

Gone fishing? My horror bone has, anyway. So has Barry Napier's if you read his latest post. I need to ruminate a bit more on the idea of "what genre" I am, if any...I smell one of those long-winded posts coming on...

But not today. I'm heading out to go caroling with the high school kids (WHOOT the semester is over!). Owen (my five year old) is going, too.

Thought some horror folks out there would want to know about these new anthos:

Dead Bait (yes, fishing themed zombie stories) & 2012 AD.

Unleash the hounds!

I love fishing!

this is something I have arguments with myself over, "What do I write?" I have determined it to be mostly dark fiction and very little sunshine and lollipops. Aside from that I am probably best categorized as a fiction writer.

I agree with Jamie. I consider myself a fiction writer. Genre is really meaningless, as long as you write your best effort. Take Khaled Hosseini for example -- he's best known as the author of THE KITE RUNNER, but what many people don't know is that he actually started out in the horror small press. Then he wrote a book that was close to him, got it published, and now he's a bestselling author. If he stayed "genre" that never would have happened.

I like to think of myself as a writer of 'odd things' whether they be horror, fantasy or sci-fi. And zombies plus fishing sounds odd enough to tempt me. :)
