What the #@&% is That: News

  • Nov. 2nd, 2016 at 1:56 PM

I have three bits of news to pass along regarding What the #@&% is That? First, if you'd like to learn more about the anthology, make sure to tune into tonight to Hour of the Wolf on WBAI (99.5 FM) in New York City with host Jim Freund at 1:30 a.m. Eastern time, as he'll be interviewing myself and co-editor John Joseph Adams. If you're not in the NYC area, the show is also available for live listening online. Simply follow the Hour of the Wolf link above, click on LISTEN TO THE SHOW, and find the Hour of the Wolf program among the options.

The second bit of news is that I'm happy to share that What the #@&% is That? is a B&N Bookseller Pick for Best Science Fiction and Fantasy for the month of November.  Or if you can't be bothered to follow the link, Jeff Somers has this to say: "This particularly clever horror collection pivots on a shared line of dialogue—the anthology’s title, with the grawlix replaced by a four-letter curse word of the author’s choosing, appears in every story. With contributions from Seanan McGuire, Laird Barron, and John Langan, among dozens of others, the admittedly off-the-wall setup results in a collection of tales that are clever, chilling, and #@&%ing weird, starting from the dedication page (“For Cthulhu”) on."

Finally, we have an author interview up on the book's website with Alan Dean Foster concerning his chilling story, "Castleweep." Come give it a read.
