Death In Small Doses


Monday, July 10, 2006
 
The song says that short people ain't got nobody to love, but I love short people, and I especially love their stories. So let's get to it:

* I managed to miss the most recent issue of ThugLit, but I have signed up for their mailing list so it will Never Happen Again. Here's the contents of the May/June issue:

"The History Channel", by Charlie Stella

"A Moment's Regret", by Ron Klosterman

"Courtesy Call", by Justin Gustainis

"Family Connections", by H. Kim Lee

"All The Beautiful Things", by Barbara Stanley

"Sweet Benny And The Sanchez Penitentiary Band", by B.H. Shepherd

"Laetrile", by Ed Lynskey

"Trim", by Vinnie Penn

"For Sarah", by Mike MacLean

"A Hog's Dinner", by Johnny Bassoff

As usual, a few writers I've heard of (Charlie Stella, Ed Lynskey, Mike MacLean) plus a few who are new to me. Check it out.


* I haven't heard anyone pushing this but Lee Goldberg, but the Amazon.com short story program has stories by some terrific writers, each for only forty-nine cents. That's a whole anthology for only ten bucks. I still have a few problems with it - for example, there's no way to create or share "playlists" - but it's a great idea. Their index of mystery stories is here. Authors include Goldberg, Jeffrey Deaver, James Lee Burke - you get the idea.


* From James Reasoner and Bill Crider comes news of the new anthology Retro Pulp Tales, edited by Joe R. Lansdale. I haven't seen a copy yet, but by all accounts this is like flipping through a few old pulp titles from the 1930s - a little Amazing, a few Weird Tales, etc. Available only from the Subterranean Press.
