That's right, the contract has been signed, so I can finally talk about it. StrangeHouse Books, who put out ZOMBIE! ZOMBIE! BRAIN BANG!, containing my story, "Pack Rat," will be publishing a collection of short stories by me entitled TALES OF QUESTIONABLE TASTE. There is no release date, and details are still being worked on, but these guys work fast, so I'm sure it'll be out soon.
If you're not familiar with them, check out their site here: http://www.strangehousebooks.com/
After looking around there, I'm sure you'll see why I'm so eager to work with them. We share a lot of the same sensibilities, and we're both transgressive as all fuck. It's like we were meant to work together. Check out some of the books they've published in the past! And look at those covers! I've been told what they want for my own cover, and I believe it's going to be one of the most impressive book covers you'll ever see!

BRAIN BANG!, you should do so here: http://www.amazon.com/Zombie-Brain-Bang-Strange-Anthology/dp/1480214841/ref=tmm_pap_title_0 It's one of the best horror anthologies I've ever been a part of, and it will prepare you for the sheer lunacy that will be TALES OF QUESTIONABLE TASTE, a StrangeHouse book.
