Writing Updates

Hi, folks! I wanted to update everyone on some new things coming down the pipeline this year — new books, new appearances, and new shenanigans of cosmic proportions!

This year will see the publication of my very first post-apocalyptic novella through Cemetery Dance, titled The Skin We’re In. I think it’s one of the darkest things I’ve ever written, along the lines of For Emmy. I’m really proud to be a part of CD’s novella line, and can’t wait to see what folks think of my venture into post-apocalyptic fiction. I don’t believe there’s a solid pub date yet, but it should likely be sometime this fall.

Another novella of mine, The Shapes of Night, is also to be published this year. I’m not sure I can announce the publisher yet, but as details become available, I’ll let folks know.

I’ve recently completed a graphic novel adaptation of Richard Chizmar’s and Billy Chizmar’s Widow’s Point. Details to follow on that as well.

I’m currently at work on what I think is the best and possibly scariest thing I’ve ever written, a cosmic horror haunted house novel I’m very excited about it. I look forward to bringing you details about this one soon, as well.

I’m updating my 2020 appearances now — I certainly hope to see you this year.

Cosmic Shenanigans will be moving from the Project Entertainment Network to Brian Keene Radio starting on April 1st. This should not affect listeners’ ability to find past or future episodes – they’ll still be available in all the usual places where you listen to podcasts. There will be a beautiful new look to the title card and merchandise. Further, I’m moving to a more regular, weekly schedule, so barring unforeseen circumstances, there should be content every week, including new interviews, readings, analysis of classical and modern cosmic horror in various facets of entertainment and the real world, and other cosmic shenanigans.

Further, I’m putting a call out for ads for Cosmic Shenanigans. I’ll be running two ads per episode, and they should be no longer than one minute in length. If you’re interested in advertising, contact engineer Matt Wildasin at thegrindedword@gmail.com.
