WFC 36

Posted by Anthony H - June 29th, 2010

World Fantasy Con #36 is coming up and I’m looking down the barrel of air fare and hotel…plus food and cab and all that.  This right after some hefty expenditures for the summer.  If I don’t go, my agent might just kill me.  So, I’m going.

Father’s Day and a Funeral

Posted by Anthony H - June 21st, 2010

Nikki’s grandmother passed away.  Having been raised by her to some extent, it’s been tough.  She shared some anecdotes of her childhood with gramma after we got the news and I found them touching.  The details will go into a eulogy she’s writing.  She flies out for the funeral today.  I’m not looking forward to being alone.  I’ve been playing cards a lot (yes Magic Online) and pondering my next story and feeling like I’ve recently (or am in the middle of) moving into a new chapter of my life.  Pondering doesn’t mean writing.  Typing has been sparse lately.  Negligible really.  But it’s percolating.  I’m not of the school that you need to write every day.  My method so far has been to write like crazy every day *while* I’m working on a story.  But I need a bit of downtime between projects.  In the meantime, i play cards.

Starred Kirkus Review

Posted by Anthony H - June 11th, 2010

“Huso’s debut conceives an eye-popping, crazy-sounding but utterly persuasive universe of medieval and modern technology mingled with cutting-edge science and blood-magic, of aerial battles fought between giant armor-plated zeppelins, horses with scales, fangs and claws, perpetual-motion devices powered by tortured souls, electric crossbows and hexes that can devastate entire cities.”

My First Interview

Posted by Anthony H - June 9th, 2010

It’s strange to be interviewed for the first time.  You get this sense of the playground you who is small and relatively uninteresting and wonder why they want to speak with you.  Nevertheless, I did my duty.  It was fun.  You can read it here.

A lovely review at Risingshadow.net.  For all the nice things said, you’d think I’d paid them.  I’m just glad another person likes the story.

Marc How Far the Horror’s Flung

Posted by Anthony H - June 3rd, 2010

Marc Laidlaw recently passed me a new short he’s working on and I don’t think he’s talked about it so — all I’m going to say is that I loved it and it made me want to read Lovecraft again.  For an excellent example of Marc’s work, go here and get a copy so you can read “Leng”.

Another Crappy Dream Leads to Random Typing

Posted by Anthony H - June 2nd, 2010

Anyone who dreams a lot probably knows what I mean about waking up profoundly affected.  Frankly it’s no fun.  And they’re not even nightmares in the classic sense of something’s chasing you.  They’re just deeply thematic and emotionally charged.  With any luck, Lovecraft got it wrong, and I won’t be dreaming after I lay dead.  I could use the break.
