Something Old, Something New

God...I've become that writer who only blogs when he has something to promote. It would be far too easy to blame it on our delayed flight last night and 2 AM bedtime, but I digress. I'll have a bit about our trip to post later, but in the meantime you can read some stories, if you're so inclined.

In the first issue of Basement Stories, you can read "Dancing Lessons", a reprint from last year's Triangulation: Dark Glass. This story only saw the light of day in print, so enjoy it while it's free, eh?

And from the vault of something new and weird, I bring you "Climbing" from issue #7 of the recently resurrected Arkham Tales. It's one of my favorite pieces. (You'll have to shell out $1.99 for the download, but Arkham Tales is always worth it.)

I'll write something profound once I'm more lucid. Okay...I'll try to write something profound.

Excellent covers on both of those. I too fell off the blogging wagon of late. It'll happen when it happens :)

Jamie Eyberg said...

I hope the vacation was fun. I look forward to hearing your adventures. Love the woodcut in the first pic, btw.

Danielle Birch said...

Two stories - well done! Heading over to read :)

Andrea Allison said...

If I only knew the meaning of "profound", maybe my blog could be deemed worth reading...on good days anyways.

I hope you had a fun trip!

"Don't worry about blogging," said the girl who just stepped back up to her blog after nine months.

Dancing Lessons is a fine, fine story, Aaron. Killer of an opening line too – loved it.

Aaron Polson said...

Too true, Mary.

Jamie - Too much fun. We're still hung-over (in a figurative sense, of course).

I hope you enjoy, Danielle.

Andrea - Ha! (and we did)

Bobbie - Welcome back, of course! I don't "worry" about it, per se. I just kind of miss it.

Thanks, L.R.
