Coming Soon...

My two big releases for this year are coming soon in the next couple weeks, a weird western novella "Fangs of the Dragon" in Monsters & Mormons and the first installment of my dark fantasy serial Midnight Sons in UGEEK Magazine.

Available everywhere on Halloween, Monsters & Mormons is an anthology of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Alternate History, Action, and Steampunk, all by Mormon writers putting their own twist on our peculiar culture. I share the TOC with Dan Wells, Graham Bradley, Wilum Pugmire, Eric James Stone, Moriah Jovan, Emily Milner, Nathan Shumate, Jaleta Clegg, as well as a bunch of others I'm not yet familiar with. And then there will be artwork by Matt Page (above), Graham Bradley, Galen Dara, Jake Parker, Blair Sterrett and Brandon Dayton.

Coming next week, UGEEK Magazine 0.5 launch issue will be available all over the metropolitan Utah area, libraries, game shops, etc etc (Geek Land) Along with my first installment of Midnight Sons there will be
Going Insane: Lovecraftian Style by Mike Hill, Raising Geek Kids or Not by Ami Chopine, Zombie Nations Comic Strip by Carter Reid, Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse by Tom Carr and Club Connection with Rex Rouviere, 7th Fleet. Game review of Mistborn RPG and the card game Eaten by Zombies.

Couple other things too, but those are the main articles for this month. I'm hoping for a very successful launch of both ventures. I hope you can check out the first online and that Utah locals will flock, praise and demand more of my fantasy nazi hunters.

Can't wait to read both of these! Really stoked and excited for Monsters and Mormons, it's such a great concept. Where will the magazine be available?

I'll be beating the drum Charles-thanks.

Appreciated Paul.

Trep-thanks, I've been told it will be available in libraries, gaming shops and a few other spots-I believe the initial print run is supposed to be at least five thousand copies, I'll post more when I know a little more.

Monsters and Mormons, eh? That is a captivating title - peaked my interest immediately. That anthology boasts a talented group of writers, as well. Good luck with UGeek, too.
