Last week, former guest Brian Keene—who can be heard in Episode 34’s career-spanning conversation—tweeted about an appearance he’d be making at Frederick Community College for a panel discussion on publishing and horror.Since Frederick’s only an hour away, I figured I’d drop by.Now it’s time to for you to eavesdrop as Dennis and I dig into a couple of classic dishes at Long Beach’s Chen’s Chinese Restaurant.Dennis is a writer and editor who’s a three-time World Fantasy Award winner and a three-time British Fantasy Award winner.But the new deal also includes an agreement that will allow Sirius XM to use Stern’s extensive audio and video library – drawn from performances, specials, and shows spanning his more-than-30-year broadcasting career – for the next dozen years.The details of the video plans will be announced at a future date.Located in the heart of the Houston Medical Center.Domain at Kirby's first Class amenities such as Lush landscaping, state-of-the-art fully equipped fitness center, Recreational game room with large-screen TV and cable, Enormous pristine pool with sundecks, Business center with internet access, fax, and copy machines are all at your finger tips.
The writing is smooth and inviting, colourful and vivid.
And while I’m happy for all the nominees, I’m especially happy about one particular nominee—me!
That’s right—my story “That Perilous Stuff” is one of the final five in the category of Superior Achievement in Long Fiction.
But luckily, since the group had planned to grab a bite to eat after their panel before they hit the road, we did get to chat while breaking bread together.
I was able to sit with them at a large round table in the Frederick Community College cafeteria, and as we inhaled salads and stromboli, I pushed them to share some of the brutal truths of horror publishing, the ones they didn’t reveal on the panel for fear of crushing the hopes and dreams of young, innocent, beginning writers.
