Voices: Tales of Horror
New Edition Preview @ Fantastic Fiction

June 17th, 2018

The good people at Fantasist Enterprises are preparing a couple special editions of Voices: Tales of Horror for release this summer, starting with the book’s first-ever digital edition and following it with a second print edition.

Both will feature a new foreword by Mick Garris (Showtime’s Masters of Horror and the upcoming Nightmare Cinema) and a bonus section featuring an additional story that originally appeared as “Human Caverns” in Fear the Abyss (Post-Mortem Press 2013).

Rewritten for its appearance in the second edition of Voices, the story about a strange discovery in the West Virginia woods will appear under its new title, “Siren,” and will be accompanied by an introduction and a new illustration by World Fantasy Award nominee Jason Zerrillo.

Jason did all the illustrations for the original release of Voices, and it’s great having him on board again.

The new digital edition will be available across all platforms (Epub, Nook, Kindle, iBook) in July, but folks attending my reading at KGB (June 20) will be able to pick up vouchers for advance copies of the epub edition (included with the purchase of the book’s first edition).

Hosted by Ellen Datlow and Matthew Kressel, Fantastic Fiction is held at the KGB Bar in the East Village. Readings begin at 7:00 PM. This time I’ll be joined by Mary Robinette Kowal – winner of multiple Hugo Awards and the author of the historical fantasy novel: Ghost Talkers and the forthcoming Lady Astronaut duology. The event is open to the public, and admission is free.

If you can’t make it to NYC but still want to score a voucher for the advance epub of Voices, I’ll be joining Fantasist Enterprises for a special signing at Seton Hill University in Greensburg on June 23. The event will be part of the In Your Write Mind Workshop, a four-day event that runs concurrently with the University’s summer residency for writers of popular fiction.

Looking further ahead, we hope to have both the new print and digital editions available to coincide with my return to Confluence, the long-running Pittsburgh sf convention, on July 28.

And of course, I’ll also be attending the premiere of Nightmare Cinema at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal on July 12.

More updates coming soon. It’s going to be an exciting summer.

GoingLIVE with the 21st-Century Scop

July 28th, 2013

Lawrence C. Connolly GoingLIVE2Fiction, art, and the pending release of Vortex: Book Three of the Veins Cycle — those are just some of the things publisher Will Horner and I talked about in our recent interview on FCTV.

The episode was conducted in conjunction with Seton Hill University and the In Your Write Mind Workshops that we both took part in last month. You can watch the interview by clicking on the image.

Here’s a description from the program’s press release:

Going LIVE  was developed by the Coordinated 360 team, subcontracted station operators for Fayette TV, with an idea to celebrate the best in Fayette County arts, culture and entertainment. We had no way of predicting, however, just how much big-city talent existed in our small community.

Blending humor, light-hearted discussion, and interactive games and demonstrations, Going LIVE with FCTV is Fayette County’s first and only live variety show focusing on arts and entertainment. At Going LIVE, we’re also passionate about supporting and providing a platform for live, local music — almost every show begins and ends with a performance from homegrown talent representing a diversity of musical genres.

Will and I didn’t conclude with a performance, but the interview did give us a chance to touch on some interesting points regarding past and current projects.

Special thanks to Heidi Ruby Miller for putting the spot together.

Now let’s go watch that video.

Scop on!
