Earlier this month, my out-of-time Hawai’i elder deity + i-heart-dogs story “The Eyes of Kaha’i” appeared in the official H. P.

Do come find me though, if you’re around. Really. Do.
Another beautiful volume in the Gothic series. Includes my story “A Good Thing and a Right Thing,” which first appeared a few years ago in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine. If you’re interested in Scandinavian history, Norse gods, disappeared communities, blood sacrifice, the Poetic Edda, patriarchal violence, and/or possible psychic echoes reverberating across time and space, you might enjoy this one.
Hear me read from my rock-n-roll Schrödinger’s birdie story “Wonderband” at the ALICE UNBOUND book launch this weekend at the 3 Brewers Pub on Sparks Street in downtown Ottawa.

I guess you can take the girl out of Austin, but you can never really take Austin out of the girl. . .
