Dispatch from the Front: New Column Live

The good folks over at Indie Pulp asked me to write a column for their website, and I was happy to oblige. The first entry, “Darkness is Darkness, Blood is Blood” went live this afternoon. I discuss writers and readers breaking down the genre boundaries. Click on over and give it a read, won’t you?

Indie Pulp: Wallowing in the coolness of indie comics, books, and more

Full disclosure: the folks at Indie Pulp are part of the Evileye Books family, but you’ll quickly find they’re about more than just Evileye titles. Drop in and poke around for reviews, previews, and interviews from a cross section of indie creators.

Last year I wrote a review of Anthony Neil Smith’s Hogdoggin’ for them, and they also published the “Big Bad Wolves” comic short set in the Pack universe and featuring artwork by Mike Henderson.

If you’ve got an indie comic on the shelves or coming soon, drop them a line. Maybe they can help you out.

Welcome, Broken Frontiersmen

Many thanks to the crew at Broken Frontier for spreading the word about my free comic, “Big Bad Wolves”, hosted by Indie Pulp and illustrated by Mike S Henderson. For those of you just visiting me for the first time after reading Broken Frontier or visiting Indie Pulp, I’d like to take a moment to introduce the series behind the comic.

“Big Bad Wolves” is a prequel of sorts to Winter Kill, the first prose novel in the The Pack series published by Evileye Books, and it explains an event at the beginning of the novel.

Long-time Broken Frontier readers may recall when they first covered a comics miniseries called Werewolves: Call of the Wild published by Moonstone Books some years back. The Pack and Winter Kill are the follow-up series to those comics, and they feature the same characters. In fact, the second prose novel, Lie with the Dead (due next year), will tie back to events in that miniseries as well as Winter Kill.

Dubbed werewolf noir, The Pack features a strong crime/thriller element as well as traditional horror. Fans have reacted very favorably to the series, and I’m happy to say werewolf fans have been eating it up as well. There is another short comic in the can and more comics work planned, but the backbone of the series will be the prose books.

Stay tuned for more news on the third book in the near future. Thanks for reading “Big Bad Wolves”, and I hope you dug it.

Quick Hit

Had a long and productive Writing Retreat Weekend. I’m excited about some things I’ll be able to share soon, but for now I can say we’ve got things fairly well locked down for Lie with the Dead and a clear idea of how the third The Pack book will play out.

Meantime, I was recruited to write a review of Anthony Neil Smith’s Hogdoggin’ for Indie Pulp. Shoot on over and give it a read, and find out why you need to be reading Hogdoggin’ (and the rest of Smith’s work).
