All right, I suppose it’s past time to dust off the old web logging machine and post something.  Fortunately, there are a couple people worth talking about. Let’s begin.

Punisher Max Special:  Little Black Book #1

Good buddy Victor Gischler makes his Marvel Comics debut today, so a little later I’ll be heading up the street to my friendly neighborhood comic shop to grab my copy. Though I’ve never been a proper consumer of comics I appreciate the form, and I’m certainly an avid consumer of Gischler stories, both by the author and about him. So count me in.



Scorch by Marc Paoletti

I first met Marc Paoletti years ago–in 1994, according to copyrights–when we were both published in a paperback anthology of horror short stories called Young Blood. Half the stories in this book were reprints of early works written by celebrated masters of the genre, the other half original stories from punks like me and Marc and assorted other reprobates.

I always got a kick out of Marc’s story in that book, and out of Marc himself. In fact, some years later, I stole one of his anecdotes (from his days as a Hollywood pyrotechnician) and based a character around it in my second novel.

I now learn that Marc has 400 novels coming out in the next 12 months, the first of which is Scorch, which stars a Hollywood pyrotechnician, and which is getting some great press so far.

My copy arrived today, and I can’t wait to dive in. Check it out for yourself. . . .

  1. Good to see another post. I already picked up my copy of Gischler’s “Punisher Max” book that came out today. I’ve only flipped through a bit and the art works for me, hope the story holds up. I did like “Shotgun Opera” quite a bit so I’m not really worried. I finally ordered a copy of “Dirt” from a third party group on Amazon, which ought to be here in a few weeks. I’m looking forward to it, and to the new novel when it comes out.

  2. Hey pal, thanks for the mention. Your story in Youngblood rocked (Sean’s story was entitled “Payday” for those of you who don’t know), and I’ve seen New Yorkers reading The Cleanup and Rain Dogs on the late afternoon F-Train. I enjoyed them both myself, and my copies await your signature. Heading to ThrillerFest this year?

  3. This website was… how do you say it? Relevant!!
    Finallly I’ve found something which helped me.
