I’ll be at Boskone!

Yep, indeed!  For all three days.

Friday I’m just doing one panel at 5 pm, “It’s All About Soul: The Films of Alex Garland.”  He’s the guy who directed Ex Machina.  According to the panel description “The common thread amongst all the stories is the looming specter of Death.”  Sounds like fun, huh?  And I’m moderating!

Saturday, I get to talk about how to “Indie Pub Your Backlist” at 10 am.  That’s followed by an autographing at noon (I’ll be bringing my new book along) and a reading of a very silly short story at 4 pm.

Sunday, I’m talking about “Abacadabra! Making Magic Real.” at noon and “:Why I Write Horror” at 3 pm.  All these panels feature many worthy individuals whose names I’m too lazy to retype.  But trust me, they’ll all be great.

Boskone happens next weekend, btw.

But didn’t somebody mention Indie Publishing? That’s enough of an excuse to show you Walter Velez’s initial sketch for A BAD DAY FOR ALI BABA, coming to e-book very, very soon.alibaba72

And another thing

Well, as the world slowly crumbles around us (I’m having a tough time watching TV news), I am slowly but surely releasing all my old books in e-format.

I always thought a good part of my initial success with my humorous fantasy novels were the wonderful covers provided by Walter Velez. I arranged to reuse his art on the Ebenezum and Cineverse books, with good results. My publisher at the time decided to go with a different artist on my next trilogy, but, now that I’m putting these books out myself, I decided I would hire Walter to do a brand new set of covers. And he’s done a wonderful job.

And what are these books? Well, showing you any one of Walter’s covers will give it away. And they will come with my personal guarantee that the books themselves will be much funnier than whatever’s happening in the real world.theothersinbad72
