It's a New Year

Yours truly pictured with the GMM anthology on
the Sunburst Awards auction table at the
2016 World Fantasy Convention
I meant to post on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day but a bout with a virus got in the way. So here I am as January 2017 is now fully upon us, reflecting on the past year. For many, 2016 was an up and down year and I can say the same.  However, I've got a lot of gratitude for the "Ups"—including a 2016 World Fantasy Award nomination in the special professional category for my work on the Gods, Memes and Monsters  anthology. I was deeply honoured by the nomination and delighted to have attended the World Fantasy convention in Columbus OH. I owe a huge debt to the wonderful people at Stone Skin and all of the 60 GMM contributors, as the nomination could not have happened without any of them. Gratitude is a wonderful thing—something I'm planning on keeping in mind throughout this coming year.

For this 62nd and final post in the series, I'm highlighting the updated, charming and frozen-dinner eating "Zmeu" creature by award-nominated Canadian actor/author/pop culture scholar/"fanthropologist" J.M.

GMM Quick-Hit-a-Thon #59

I'm up to number 59 in my Stone Skin Press Gods, Memes and Monsters anthology "Quick-Hit-a-Thon." This time I'm highlighting a creature that can sometimes be found partying on college campuses: "The Weredad" by LA-based writer/actor/filmmaker/musician/podcaster Chad Fifer. Fifer's entry opens with "Most people worry about turning into..."
