PULVER SAYS GIT TO WORK!
Damn it, I've completed work on five bloody books these past two or three years and I deserve a holiday. True, a lot of the work on those books has merely been doing a light polish on older yarns, but lots of it has been ye composition of new weird fiction. So I told myself, okay, I'm taking the rest of the year off, no writing until I return from MythosCon. Four months of being lazy.
Joe Pulver says No Way. That's me and Joe standing at the grave of Robert W. Chambers. Joe also has a new collection forthcoming from Hippocampus Press, and S. T. Joshi told me he cannot yet read or comment on my newest book because he is busy reading a Joe Pulver novel. You have all ready Joe's first collection from Hippocampus Press, the magnificent Blood Will Have Its Season -- if you haven't, what the hell is wrong with ye? It's bloody brilliant! Thomas Ligotti praised it!
My buddy Greg, who along with Maryanne have taken me to the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival these past years, has just reminded me that every time I attend HPLFF, I come home so on fire to write that there's no way I will be able to take off for four months and do no writing. He's probably correct. I'll come home from this, ye very last HPLFF in Portland, with emotional & creative overload -- & onlie ye pen will save both sanity & soul.
