Late Night Debut with co-host Daniel H. Wilson

 

So that really great  — and by great I mean I had a total blast — Late Night Library recording I made at the gorgeous downtown Literary Arts space for the Late Night Debut is out and about in the world! Late Night Debut host Amber Keller = amazing. Co-host Daniel H. Wilson = amazing.  BLACK MOON, by Kenneth Calhoun = yes, amazing.

 

About the author and the audiocast from the Late Night Library site:

press-Kenneth-Calhoun“There’s a connection between the notion of the soul—or the subconscious, let’s say, in more psychological terms—and our humanity, and those things are articulated to us in the form of dreams.”

Act 1: Host Amber Keller covers controversial and entertaining book stories in the news
Act 2: Co-host authors Daniel H. Wilson and Alex C. Renwick discuss Kenneth’s debut
Act 3: Daniel talks with Kenneth about tapping into one’s dreams, the ability to sleep like a champ, and what happens when we lose both

Super Stories at LITQUAKE in San Francisco

I’ll be in gorgeous San Francisco this year for Litquake, a “nine-day literary spectacle for booklovers, complete with cutting-edge panel discussions, unique cross-media events, and hundreds of readings.” Come hear me read alongside Tim Pratt and Claude Lalumière as we celebrate the recent release of SUPER STORIES OF HEROES AND VILLAINS, now out from Tachyon.

From the Litquake site:

“Whether it’s poets reciting in a cathedral, authors discussing science versus religion in a library, or novelists reading in a beekeeping supply store, the goal remains the same: whet a broad range of literary appetites, present the literary fare in a variety of traditional and unlikely venues, and make it vivid, real, and entertaining. Now grown to the largest independent literary festival on the West Coast. . . “

Fiction: Fat Johnny Little and Salty Salt Sue make a break for the desert

hardly neverSalty Salt Sue met Fat Johnny Little at a card game so hot it burned a girl, the sultry Louisiana night dampening her clothes, making her tingle from the waist down. She sat next to Vinnie DeLuca, who bore a passing resemblance to Dillinger—his pencil moustache and fancy cigar and straight flush minus one—with her knee crooked over the arm of his chair like she could keep her legs anchored solid that way, keep everything from going south. . .

My story “Hardly Never in Vegas” is out today in Nautilus Magazine. Incredible illustrations by Angie Wang.
