THIS THURSDAY: A strange, weird and uncanny reading (+ a terrific AFTERMATH review)

/ Sunday, July 11th, 2021 / No Comments »

I’m delighted to share that on Thursday, July 15, at 8 p.m. EST, I’ll be taking part in the second installment of a summer reading series organized by my colleague in Weird fiction, Daniel Braum. I’m thrilled to be part of a stellar lineup of readers that includes Jeffrey Ford, Laurel Hightower and Gwendolyn Kiste!

The Strange. The Weird. And the Uncanny: Summer 2021 Readings #2 will happen live on YouTube, and it will continue to live on YouTube after it’s done streaming. Watch it at this link.

During this reading I’ve going to share some huge (for me!) publishing news that has yet to be publicly aired. I’m grateful to Daniel for including me and so glad he’s giving me this opportunity to share this writing news in an entertaining way.

The first reading of the series, featuring Inna Effress, Emma J. Gibbon, Jo Kaplan and Jon Padgett happened June 10 and it’s totally worth a watch. (Click here to view…)

While I am at it, I have yet to use this space to trumpet the wonderful review of Aftermath of an Industrial Accident that appeared at Mike Davis’s Lovecraft Ezine the day after I made on an appearance on Mike’s venerated podcast. Aside from being a lot of fun, the podcast presented me with my first ever experience being interviewed by a reviewer, in this case fellow horror writer Peter Rawlik, who had this to say about my book:

Many years ago I stumbled across Mike Allen’s collection Unseaming which I enjoyed immensely and still haunts my bookshelves as a permanent part of my weird fiction collection. Allen’s new collection, Aftermath of an Industrial Accident, is more diverse than Unseaming … Mike Allen has hit another home run with this subtle and multi-nuanced collection.
