A New Humor Column

I have a column in the new issue of Bridges magazine, about the difficulties of being a manly he-man. You can see why they came to me, right?



In any case, their site seems to be down, but I believe they will give you a free subscription if you give them a call at 606-329-8383.

Another Place to Get DE:TGD

Diabolical Dave Wilbanks clued me in to this link for ordering Dead Earth: The Green Dawn at Bloodletting Books.

Larry Roberts has put together a fine online bookstore that will continue to flourish as Shocklines closes down.

And when you're over there, you can also get a copy of Deadneck Hootenanny.

My New Blog

This blog has evolved into posts almost exclusively about my writing, Pod of Horror and my personal life, and I have no problem with that.

But I'm also still a nut about comics, pulps, old paperbacks and other such nonsense, which now seems a little out of place here, so I've started a new blog.

Check out I Was A Bronze Age Boy.

The Big Book Anouncement

In 2008 Delirium Books will publish Bone Songs, my first collection, in a limited hardcover and trade paperback.

Bone Songs will include both previously published stories and several original pieces, including a brand-new novella.

Here’s what one writer says about the collection:

"With Bone Songs, Mark Justice has given us a genuine gift; by turns funny, horrifying, heartbreaking, and just plain weird, this is a real showcase collection, and a feast for readers. You never know from one tale to the next what he's going to hit you with, and it's that very unpredictability that makes this book so much more than the mere sum of its often-brilliant parts. Justice has a keen and unflinching eye for the telling details of human (and un-human) behavior, and a poet's economy with words. There is not a wasted syllable to be found between these covers, and at times I felt as if I were being given a writing lesson. I cannot imagine anyone reading powerhouse stories such as "Black Wings" and the hands-down masterpiece "Father's Day" without feeling envious that they didn't write them. I expected this collection to be good; I didn't expect it to knock my socks off and leave me so wrung out. This is what short fiction should be but too often isn't. If you don't get this collection, your life is going to be all the poorer for it -- and I've never said that about a book before."
--Gary A. Braunbeck, winner of the Bram Stoker Award and International Horror Guild Award, and author of Destinations Unknown and Mr. Hands

Thanks to Shane and Greg at Delirium for making this happen.

More details when they're available.
