Well, ya know, it’s my blog…
At any rate, premier reviewer John Milton has published a review of Grey Matter Press’ recent antho, Death’s Realm. I have a little story in there called “Some Other Day.” John gives the book a great review, but also singles out my story thusly:
“Lauded genre veteran and fast becoming known as the ‘King of Pain’, John F.D.Taff earns his crown in the touching and emotional ‘Some Other Day’.”
And if you’re one of the six people who read this blog, you know of the sale of my story “Cards for His Spokes, Coins for His Fare” to Gutted: Beautiful Horror Stories, out next year from Crystal Lake Publishing. Doug Murano, one of the antho’s editors, posted something nice about the story in Facebook the other day…ahem…
“Can’t wait to share this story with everyone. It’ll ruin your day in the most beautiful way you can imagine.”
That’s an awesome line, right there. I can’t say too much about this story, but the beta readers (you know who you are) frakkin’ loved it.
Anyway, my picture also was in this month’s issue of Locus, the WHC/HWA con report issue. The photo spread on the con features a picture of me and the dashing Tony Rivera and the lovely Sharon Lawson, publisher and editor at Grey Matter press, respectively, at the con.
Yeah, and unfortunately my name is misspelled…twice. Bother.
