Note for Patreon Subscribers

Got some new content up – a new installment of Ghosts and Monsters of NJ, and excerpts of 6 old short stories from 2000, when I first started writing. Those include one of my first ever published stories (incidentally, the first story with which I shared an anthology space with Brian), and also, my one and only erotic horror story. Feel free to giggle at my past ineptitude. 

I’m working on the Chapter to WHERE THE DEAD LIE, and hope to have it posted late tonight/early tomorrow morning. My apologies for the delay.

I will have my first-ever comic, A MAN’S WORLD, appearing alongside some horror genre legends in a horror take on DC superheros titled DC HOUSE OF HORROR.  As Brian Keene mentioned on his website, we would really, really appreciate it if you would consider pre-ordering DC HOUSE OF HORROR #1, which will be in comic book stores on October 25th. It features work by me, Brian, Edward Lee, Bryan Smith, Nick Cutter, Wrath James White, Weston Ochse, and Ronald Malfi, paired with artists Rags Morales, Bilquis Evely, Howard Porter, Scott Kolins, and Dale Eaglesham. It also features the legendary Keith Giffen riding herd over us all.

I cannot stress enough how important it is that you pre-order this comic from your local comic book store. Due to the distribution system in place, there is a 50/50 chance comic book sores will actually have a copy on the shelf on release day UNLESS YOU PRE-ORDER IT FROM THEM. To do so, simply walk into your local comic book store* and say, “Hello. I would like to pre-order DC HOUSE OF HORROR, and the order code is AUG170272.”

It’s that easy. And if you don’t have a local comic book store in your vicinity, you can order online from Things From Another World and have it shipped directly to you.

DC editorial have told us that if the book sells well enough, this will become a regular, monthly thing. That means you’ll see HORROR return to DC Comics. If you want to make that happen, then please, please, please pre-order.

Thank you.

*If you are local to Morris County, NJ, here is a handy list of places that you can call to pre-order the comic.  If you are elsewhere in NJ but would like to share your local comic store’s contact info, please feel free.

Patreon Content and Other News

Hi, folks.  Just letting Patreon subscribers know that all of the content for this month has been posted except for the new chapter of WHERE THE DEAD LIE, which should be up by tonight, tomorrow morning at the latest.  For those who’d like to check out what I’m doing on Patreon, you can go HERE for the full scoop.

In other news, my first-ever non-fiction collection, A WEIRDISH WILD SPACE, is now shipping.  My understanding is that there are only 7 or so copies left, so if you’re interested in picking up one before they’re all gone, go HERE as soon as possible.




Speaking of collections, my newest short story collection, NIGHT MOVES, is up for pre-order and will be debuting at Scares that Care this July.  If you want to pre-order a copy before they’re all gone, go HERE.




Finally, in the area of pre-orders, my newest novel from Kensington is due out in September, I believe, but you can pre-order it now by going HERE.

A WEIRDISH WILD SPACE Available for Pre-Order

Just a reminder, folks, that A Weirdish Wild Space, my first non-fiction collection, is available for pre-order from Thunderstorm Books, and should start shipping mid-June.

Acclaimed author Mary SanGiovanni presents A Weirdish Wild Space, a collection of non-fiction essays about horror in fiction, cinema, art, and video games as well as essays about being a writer, a mother, a lover, a daughter, and a sister. In addition to historical essays about the publishing business are also remembrances of friends and mentors, women’s changing roles as creators of horror media, academic analyses of the craft, and more. A must-have addition to collectors of Mary SanGiovanni’s work, this volume is raw and vulnerable, an earnest and endearing look inside the mind and heart of the creative soul.

Pre-Order HERE.

The Fading Place Available for Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Paperback

Letting folks know that my novella, The Fading Place, will be available this week in paperback, Kindle, Nook, and Kobo.  If you don’t have it and you like thrillers, I hope you’ll consider picking it up.  I’ll be posting direct links this week as I receive them.

ATTENTION: Patreon Subscribers

For subscribers of my Patreon, I know I’m cutting it close on two installments, the Behind-the-Scenes items and chapter 3 of WHERE THE DEAD LIE.  I haven’t forgotten about you, though; they should be posted very late tonight, but they will be posted.  I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up.  It’s been an insanely busy week and is likely to be so for a while, but I’m on it. 🙂
