I WILL ROT WITHOUT YOU is OUT NOW!!!!

Guess what?!

My new novel I WILL ROT WITHOUT YOU is out now. Available on Amazon and other fine places.


From the back cover:

WHEN THE WORLD FALL APART AND YOUR BODY STARTS TO ROT, LET THE ROACHES LEAD.

Meet Ernie. His life is a mess. Gretchen's gone, and the apartment they once shared in this grey, grim city is now overrun with intelligent mold and sinister bugs.

Then his neighbor Dee shows up, so smart and lovely. If he can just get past the fact that her jealous ex-boyfriend can reach out of her blouse and punch him in the face at any moment, this could be the start of a beautiful friendship.

Unfortunately for all involved, a Great Storm is coming and it will wash away everything we've ever known about the human heart.

"I WILL ROT WITHOUT YOU is like Cronenberg's THE FLY if it had been directed by Frank Zappa and Bruce Bickford. Nightmarishly rich in vision, absurdly and painfully hilarious, sorrowfully poignant, and bristling with outrageous surprises that never ever ever stop coming till it's done." - John Skipp, from his introduction


Also, I did Frank Edler's new podcast Bizzong! where I talked about the process of writing this book. You can find that on iTunes, Stitcher, or at the link I'm providing below:


Also, also, the Fungasm Press website is now up, where you can pick up copies of ROT, see links to some of my stuff, and check out what the other Fungasm writers are up to. Good books, good people.


That's it.

Love you all,
Danger

A Performance and an Anthology and and the Official Release Date for my Upcoming Novel!

Man, I'm not very creative with this post title, am I?

1. Tomorrow Dec. 4th you can watch me read at the Old Gilbert Road Tavern in Portland, OR for the inaugural show of the Gilbert Road Grotesque Variety Show. Hosted by Garrett Cook and Alicia Graves, it'll feature performances by yours truly along with other bizarro authors and comedians like G Arthur Brown and Karl Fischer. It'll be fun times, if you can make it.

COME SEE THE GILBERT ROAD GROTESQUE!

2. My story 'A Robot's Sonnet' will be reprinted in the 2015 Jersey Devil Press Anthology celebrating 6 years of my favorite online lit-mag. This was one of my all-time favorite pieces of short fiction and this book looks to be JAM PACKED with good writers.

PICK UP A COPY OF THE 2015 JERSEY DEVIL PRESS ANTHOLOGY!

3. The release date for my upcoming Fungasm Press novel I WILL ROT WITHOUT YOU has been pushed back to February 8th, 2016. This is because we're trying to BUILD SOME PRESS before the book comes Out. So as John Skipp works his promotional magic from behind the scenes, I'm gonna pubically call on all of you fine people. IF you write for a publication (or know someone who does) AND you want a copy of the book for review: I'LL HOOK YOU UP. If you or someone you know runs a blog or a webpage or a podcast and would be interested in interviewing me or lettme me guest post: I'D BE DOWN FOR THAT TOO!

CONTACT ME HERE!

That's all for now.

Bye kids,

Danger.

Appearances!

Come find me at BizarroCon (Nov. 5th-8th) and we can drink a beer named after my upcoming book I WILL ROT WITHOUT YOU:


I will be reading/performing a selection from I WILL ROT WITHOUT YOU on Friday night at the Eraserhead Press party. I will also be on a panel on Saturday as well as performing (again) in the Ultimate Bizarro Showdown on Saturday night, in addition to having my co-authored book STRANGER DANGER (momentarily out-of-print) up for a Wonderland Award! Full schedule of events here. It's going to be quite a weekend. And attendees will be the first people to be able to score copies of I WILL ROT WITHOUT YOU because they will be on sale at the convention only until their official release date on Dec. 1st.

AND SPEAKING OF APPEARANCES:

Come see me read/perform AGAIN the following weekend at LIVING DEAD HORROR CONVENTION (Nov. 13th-15th). This is going to be a GREAT TIME at Portland's first celebrity horror convention. Check out the event page if you don't believe me. Besides reading, I will be working/hanging out at the convention all weekend and helping my buddy (who organized this event) Deanna keep things running smoothly. JOIN US, WON'T YOU?

Both these things are happening here in Portland. Get your ass on a plane. Come hang out!

Love,
Danger

An Interview and Two Upcoming Readings!

Short and sweet, here we go:

1. Did an interview with Christoph Paul on his excellent podcast The Passion of the Christoph.

LISTEN HERE or just download that shit from iTunes

2. October 1st doing a reading at The Lovecraft Bar in Portland, Oregon. This reading is the book release party of Garrett Cook's new novel A GOD OF HUNGRY WALLS as well as being the kick-off party for the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. Lots of excellent bizarro writers will be performing, including (but not limited to) me, Garrett, Jeff Burk and Vince Kramer. I've written something special for this performance and it's either going to be a lot of fun or fail miserably.


3. October 6th I'll be reading again at The Hour That Stretches at the Jade Lounge here in Portland. Last month the reading there went well. This month it should be even better, as my girlfriend Lisa LeStrange will be reading too and I think we're gonna perform our joint 'Interactive Erotic Friend Fiction' bit we did at the Bizarro Hour in Chicago. And I *might* perform the 'Popsicle' bit that won me 3rd place at last year's Bizarro Showdown.


Come on out and support me if you can. I love you.
