NEW NOVELLA: "THE OBESE" COMING IN 2012

My novella The Obese will be published in "The Magazine of Bizarro Fiction #5" then later as a standalone novella by Lazy Fascist Press next year, early in the year.  It's like Daphne du Maurier's "The Birds" except instead of the birds, it's the obese.  This really is a novella; it's about half the length of Midnight Picnic, around 20,000 words.  Much thanks to Cameron Pierce for taking a chance on a very demented piece of writing.

This is fantastic news! I've been following your blog for a little while now and have actively been involved with the Bizarro community for nearly five years. I can tell you that you've met a great bunch of guys and Cameron Pierce is an awesome fellow, really nice. I own the first four magazines and so far, they have all been high-quality so I look forward to reading your story in the fifth issue. Is it going to be published in its entirety in the Magazine and then as a stand-alone (same version) or with some alterations?

Thanks, guys! glad to hear it, Mike. It's going to be published in its entirety in the magazine. It's possible there might be some changes to the novella, and also likely there will be some additional stories included with the novella.

Sweet! I enjoy your work. Will have to pick up a copy. There will surely be much to entertain and maybe fuel a nightmare or two.
