No it’s not March Madness here. Due to the fact that a fully completed draft of this post (minus photos) disappeared, this will be shorter and later than planned.
Here are the books I got this month:
Apparently they could use some sales to make up for money lost due to last minute cancellation at NecronomiCon Providence. Also, FYI, the store will eventually be moving away from the Storenvy site to the Lulu one.
J-H Rosny aine, translated by S. Nicolay – The Xipehuz. I’m looking forward to reading this, and comparing it to the original French (if I can find a library copy). Read more about this here. STILL AVAILABLE!
Michael Wehunt – The Tired Sounds, Awake (or is it A Wake?). I haven’t read this yet, but I did notice that it seems to be 2 perspectives, identified in the text by the terms in the title (as separated by the comma). I’m curious to see how it all relates back.
Stuff I did:
I saw a number of really good to great movies. In order of awesomeness: Get Out, Logan, Kong: Skull Island.
Get Out holds up to repeated viewings in a short span. Just brilliant, and utterly horrifying. Logan was focused and brutal. Kong surprised me, but it had enough action, enough political commentary, and didn’t stay around too long.
My friend Simon breaks down more reasons not to watch Iron Fist, this time relating to martial arts.
Dim Shores has a temporary website. Read more about the upcoming anthology Looming Low.
Whitney French has a free short e-book of afro-futurist spec and sci-fi called Face Full of Atmo. Which is no longer available as of yesterday. I apologize. I thought I posted this a few days ago. You can sign up for her newsletter at the link to not miss the next one.
Muzzleland Press was giving away free Kindle (don’t forget to go to your country appropriate Amazon) copies of Jonathan Raab’s The Hillbilly Moonshine Massacre. This is now back up to 1$, but still a great deal! They’ve had some great deals, so good to keep an eye on.
Issue #1 of Anathema Magazine is available!
Friend to the blog, Selena Chambers, has her new book Calls for Submission available for pre-order! Also keep an ear out for a reading (from this collection?) on an upcoming episode of the Outer Dark!
