This trailer as well as some other video stuff, including video of me reading, can be found on the Shriek website.
More Evil Monkey videos are forthcoming. In the meantime, “enjoy” the first three.
My little (huge, wrestler) grandson, Riley, is growing by leaps and bounds. Here are some early photos. (He’s six months old now, so I’ll post new photos soon…)
Last summer, we did a book tour of Europe: Portugal, France, Belgium (for the beer), Germany, Czech Republic, Romania, and Finland. In fact, the people above–Michael, Horia, Bogdan, Mireille, and Marius–are all part of Tritonic, my Romanian publisher. We had an amazing adventure everywhere we went.
In addition to sending the Alien Baby all over the world, we used to photograph people holding the Smoking Bunny. Most of these photos are from World Fantasy Con in Madison, Wisconsin, a couple of years back.
Over the last few years, we’ve visited a lot of places and people. Like, Therese, Brooke, and Jacob (geniuses all) at the SF Museum in Seattle. But also Australia, England, etc. Here are a few photos from those trips.
Regardless, the enduring properties of the Romantic Underground remain a lack of membership by those authors cited and a general lack of identifying characteristics. At first, reading between the lines of critical texts from the period — some from the infamous Yellow Book — the Romantic Underground apparently formed a “loose umbrella” around certain authors, attempting to provide a critical and imaginative landscape in which creativity could have free, albeit vague, reign. Authors being skittish at best, most apparently saw the umbrella as more of a trap and escaped without their names ever being connected to rumors of a vast but secret literary organization dedicated to the antithesis of anything popular, tidy, or, indeed, logical.

I’m writing a Predator novel for Dark Horse and editor Victoria Blake, from a detailed synopsis I provided to them. The novel is due in January 2008 and will be published in 2008. Set in the South China Sea, the novel features an ex-Khmer Rouge colonel, a Thai pirate, a huge transplanted African crocodile, and a Romanian crime boss, among other things. Oh, yes, and a Predator.
