WIP Wednesday Gets Around

Let's start in Australia, where this:

has just been released. Not only is the cover art delicious (I promised scary, right?), but lookie here...I'm sharing a TOC with Terry Dowling. (I'm humbled, to be sure.) My little story, "The Weight of Children's Stories" is about stories (and caves, and monsters, and...oh just read it). Grab a copy in PDF or lovely dead tree edition.

On to the United Kingdom, which happens to be where the incredibly talented Cate Gardner lives. I've finally formatted and uploaded Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits to the Kindle store, and you know what? Cate's generously priced the book at 99 cents. Yippee! Check it out on Amazon.

Okay, so my WIP takes place in New Mexico, way back in the territorial days. 1881 to be exact, just about a year after the arrival of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad. Welcome again to the world of the Sons of Chaos (first seen in Black Medicine Thunder). I don't want to give too much away:

The thing had him by the throat, and the pistol fell with a thunk to the wooden floor.

So should I mention the "thing" takes out his heart? I did say scary, didn't I?

Nice! Doubly so, in fact. (I just wanted to say "doubly"). That cover art really is cool.

Loving the Midnight Echo cover.

Any time I'm tempted to set something *insert historical time here* I remind myself how much research it would entail. Then I cry. It's not that I didn't pay attention in school, I just have a really bad memory.

Cool. I've downloaded my copy and will be reading it soon.

This post is replete with cool! I'm picking up a copy of Cate's collection, and congratulations on cracking into Midnight Echo. Terry Dowling is one of the best weird writers. Really dig his fiction (thoroughly atmospheric).
