If you haven't read my short humor piece, "How to Write a Horror Story" at Eric's Hysterics, I invite you to do so. It's inspired by... Well, something I'm sure. Maybe you'll find it informative.
Triangulation: Last Contact has been released as well, and I'm pleased to say I made the cover this year. Grab a copy at Amazon ($16.00) or Barnes and Nobel (only $10.25!) and read this year's fine entries, including my minimalist sci-fi tale, "The Good Daughter".
Have a great weekend.
