Dust is Dead Skin

Dust BunnyMy girlfriend keeps reminding me that dust is dead skin.  It seems to be piling up everywhere around me lately, so I figured I’d dust off the old blog and do an update.  It’s only been a few days since I last posted, but that’s an eon in internet time.

Work, family, and other obligations have kept me supremely busy as of late, but I thought I’d give you an update on what’s going on with Senses Five Press.  As I (might have) mentioned on this blog, I’ve been working to get Paper Cities out as an e-book.  I’ve just submitted the complete e-manuscript to Amazon and am awaiting their approval.  So the first platform it will be available for is the Kindle (obviously).  I expect to make the anthology available for other platforms as well in the coming weeks.  If you haven’t had a chance to read this 2009 World Fantasy Award Nominated anthology yet, now’s your chance.

As for Sybil’s Garage, I’ve been so busy lately with work that I can’t conceive of trying to fit reading slush in with all the other things I have to do.  This is not to say that Sybil’s Garage is going anywhere.  I still plan to publish the magazine for a long time to come.  But the next issue may be delayed some.  I do not have a firm date for when I plan to open for submissions, and right now, to be perfectly honest, I am enjoying the downtime from reading & producing to work on my own fiction.  Oh, you didn’t know?  I also write too.

My most recent stuff is in Electric Velocipede and Apex Magazine, both of which you can read online by clicking the links at left.  That’s about all I have for today.  Merry blogging.

Paper Cities, the Rock Band

Paper Cities, the rock bandI’ve got this Google alert that emails me any time something with “Paper Cities” comes up.  About fifty percent of the time it comes up with Paper Cities, the rock band.  That’s no joke.  They’re a real band out of Kansas City.  I don’t know why, but I’ve only just listened to them now.  They sound pretty damn good.  Here’s there Myspace page.
