Writing Project Updates: Harlem Smoke & Last Dark Ride

First off, a bit of old news (taken from my Facebook page from January 14th of this year): 

"Well, seeing as they've mentioned it on both Facebook and their website, it looks like my novel Harlem Smoke will be published by Snuggly Books at some point in the future. Obviously I'm very excited about this because, as I've said before, Snuggly is certainly one of my favorite modern publishers: I like how they not only put out books by current writers but also reprint a lot of older, more obscure books (such as their Jean Lorrain reprints). More news on this as it becomes available."

Now, as for more recent news:

My third short story collection, Last Dark Ride, is mostly complete. Of course there's still some work to be done on it: some minor rewriting, along with the editing and proofreading, but at least the bulk of the hard work (that is, the actual writing) is done. Hopefully it'll be ready to begin shopping it around to publishers this summer. At first I was worried that it was shorter than my second collection, but in fact, at around 92,000 words (which came to around 220 pages), it actually ended up being around 10,000 words longer.
The table of contents (which may end up being shuffled a bit):
1. Home Invasion
2. The Man Who Murdered His Muse
3. Black Noise
4. The Lovers Reversed
5. XYschaton
6. Epistles From The Sunken Track
7. A Gig at Thanatos
8. The Madonna of the Cobwebs
9. Cannons
10. Snapper’s Salvation
11. Chaoskampf
12. The Lemming Syndrome (bonus)
One thing that differentiates this collection from my first two is that there's no gimmick: unlike GRIMOIRE the stories aren't interconnected to form a larger narrative, and unlike AUTOPSY OF AN ELDRITCH CITY they aren't all set in the same location. For better or worse it's just a collection of short stories, but that's the price one pays when one includes stories that have been published elsewhere, I suppose (as a small handful of these have been).
As the title indicates I pretty much plan for this to be my last pure collection of horror/Weird Fiction stories. I've been writing such tales for almost a decade now (this August will mark the ten year anniversary of the writing of "Mauve Movies," my first true Weird Fiction story), and after two prior collections (plus the upcoming novel Harlem Smoke), I feel that I've pretty much tapped that vein for all it was worth, and no longer have anything to prove to myself. This does not mean I will never write such a story again; it merely means that any future collections I do will be more eclectic in terms of genre/subject matter/themes and so on. Or, to quote Clive Barker from the introduction he wrote for the 10th anniversary edition of his BOOKS OF BLOOD (and which I reuse as the final epigraph of this new book): “I saw myself as a man who runs a freak show, pounding on a drum, summoning up an audience to gawp at my collection of mooncalves and bottled fetuses. That side of my nature has become a good deal more subdued of late. I did my yelling and my drumming, I made my catalogue of excesses, and finally, I suppose, grew a little weary of the show.”

Ten Year Reading Experiment Grand Finale Reading Total (2008-2017)

Seeing as I don't think I'll be finishing any more books this late in the year, I suppose I can go and post this now.
 
For most of my life, I’ve been a voracious reader. Yet when I started work as a bookseller at Barnes & Noble in February 2004, I found after awhile that I wasn’t reading nearly as many books as I used to (perhaps as a consequence of being surrounded by books all day). In 2006, I began posting at Dennis Cooper’s blogs, and making friends with various people on there, and one thing that impressed me about that crowd at that time was how well-read and erudite so many of the people there were at the time. Around that same point of time Dennis posted a list of his top 50 novels, which also impressed me… I decided I wanted to make such a list as well, but that I needed to read way more books first. So at the end of 2007, I made a plan: to try to read 50 books a year for a ten year span, so that after ten years I’d have around 500 books read. I decided the best way to go about doing this was to keep a list of all the books I read during the year. You know how the human mind works when it comes to keeping a list: it’s only natural to want to add to it.
 
Well, now that ten years have passed, I suppose I can post the fruit of my labors. As one can see, I did end up hitting at least 50 books a year (and in some cases far surpassing that) for ten years, so that I ended up with 812 books read (which amounts to an average of 81 books read a year). In truth, that number should be higher: for the first year, in 2008, I only kept track of fiction books, and it was not until 2009 that I began keeping track of non-fiction as well. There were some graphic novels I read that, for whatever reason, I neglected to mark down as well, and in 2016 I read 32 of Garry Trudeau’s Doonesbury collections that also went unmarked (as I didn’t want the list to appear that cluttered). So, if you factor all that into account, a more accurate number would probably be close to 870 books read.
 
As one can see, they are listed by the order in which they were read, and classified by the book’s title, its writer/editor, and the date on which I finished reading it. An * mark following the date indicates that the book in question was a re-read. Also, don’t bother looking up info on anything by Tom or Andrew Champagne: those books are unpublished books written by my younger brothers.
