Eclectic Conundrum???

Those Glorious Bastards

The Papercut Books version of my book, Eclectic Collection, is no longer available for sale. A new version will be released soon, with much needed changes and an additional story.

Some of these changes include a tighter editing job, reformatting and an updated Stories of Stories. The new version will also have my story, Committed. This story was previously published in Forrest J Ackerman's Anthology of the Living Dead, from Black Bed Sheet Books.

The new version will be released through Create Space,under the imprint Glorious Bastards Press.

Who are these Bastards?

Glorious Bastards Press, is a transgressive fiction imprint, designed and fitted for Joe Schwartz and myself. This is not a publishing company, or a vanity press, this is putting control back in the hands of the artist. This is making our work available to the public. This is what happens when two very motivated and talented people combine their efforts.

Joe will also be releasing his first book, Joe's Black T-Shirt, under this imprint, but that is just the beginning. There will be more books and more Bastards soon.

Another book on the menu, from us Bastards is Fracas: A Collection of Short Friction, featuring new stories from Joe Schwartz, John F.D. Taff, Brandon S. Bennett, Jade Haggard, plus another Dominick Mason mystery collectively by Scott Lefebvre and myself. I will have at least one other story story in Fracas, in addition to my editorial tasks, that I will be sharing with my sister, Stacy Bowers.

So far this book is looking pretty damn awesome.

I hope to have more details and a release date for everything soon!!!
