13 Hours of Zombies in the Rain

Now available for download, the Portlandtown audio-book! That's right, now you don't even need to work your eyes to enjoy 13 hours of old west adventure and zombie killin'. Hooray! 
If you're curious, you can find a sample here, read by the talented Mr. Scott Sowers. Very nicely done. He has just the right mix of creepy and old western grit in the reading. Heck, I might have to get myself a copy.

Presently, the download is available at Audible and Amazon, starting at $25. You can get it cheaper if you sign up for a membership. CDs and cassettes should be available soon.

The Sleepover

Here's a little something fun from director Chris Cullari called The Sleepover. It's a proof of concept short for a feature about a town the has one of them nasty supernatural serial killer types hanging around, always causing trouble. It's a little bit bloody, but otherwise wholesome family fun!

What's Next?

For my next trick, I've begun work on a novel set in the present day called Pumpkin Eater. Think Halloween spooks, pumpkin-carving, and messy family trees. It's currently in the development stage, but writing will commence soon, and (with a little luck) I'll have a first draft in short order (unlike the Wyldes, this one should come a little easier).

I'm also working on the follow up to Portlandtown, which currently is claiming the title, Ghost Town. Pretty simple, but it fits (and will probably change anyway). I guess ghosts are the new zombies (at least in my world).

So, that trailer for World War Z came out the other day and we all went...huh? And then there's this: Warm Bodies, based one the book by Isaac Marion. Tell me this doesn't look like a ton of fun. Can't do it, can you? See you in line.

Oh, Hai Goon!

Is this not the coolest thing you've seen today or what? Don't say "what." This lovely bit of concept art comes to us from Blur Studios, the fine folks attempting to get a Goon movie off the ground. They've still got 5 days left on their Kickstarter campaign to produce a full length story reel. Looks like they're about 75% of the way there, so...if you feel like kicking in a few pennies us Goon fans would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Grim Grinning Ghosts

Found this and just had to share. This is the original "Grim Grinning Ghosts" tune from the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland. This clip has the full audio from the ride, including all the screams, hoots, and  hollers, plus all the different vocalizations. Very cool.

New Signing

Added another signing, this time at The Willamette Store on Thursday, December 6, from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. In case you were wondering, yes, that is on the Willamette University campus in the middle of Salem, Oregon. Apparently, the college kids love me.
