"Street of the Dead House" is among the best

I just signed a contract for "Street of the Dead House" to be included in YEAR'S BEST DARK FANTASY & HORROR: 2016, edited by Paula Guran.  "Street" is a retelling of a classic Poe story, and first appeared in nEvermore!, edited by Nancy Kilpatrick and Caro Soles.  That's the first time I have ever been reprinted in English, much less in a Best Of collection.  So color me happy.

The good folks at Small Publishers, Artists, and Writers Network invited me to discuss how to fill a novel with facts without boring people  The result is "Farewell My Coastline: or How to Write an Environmental Crime Novel Without Sending Your Reader into the Big Sleep."

Updating the Lopresti Collection

I have donated copies of all my stories and books to Western Washington University, where I work, and they just updated the Guide to my collection.

KRL: GREENFELLAS is one of the Best Mysteries of 2015

Kings River Life Magazine just put out their list of the Best Mysteries of 2015, and GREENFELLAS is on it.  I am, as the British would say, right chuffed.  Thank you, Sandra Murphy, for your excellent taste!
