BARE BONE #11

My contributor's copy of the Bare Bone #11 antho arrived today, smashing its way thru the front-door with a red fireman's axe. "Heeeeeere's Lucy!!"

Edited by that suave-looking psychopath Kevin Donihe and wrapped up in a neat brown gimp-harness designed by Carlton Mellick III. This is Horror, But Not As You Know It. Be prepared to read this book side-saddle.



In amongst work by such card-carrying brainfuckers as Cody Goodfellow, Paul Finch, Cameron Pierce and (yay) Forrest Armstrong you will find a biggish story by me called "Getting Old". It's in a faux-genre I call Neuro-Noir, which is - well, hard to describe - but imagine an old fashioned Ed McBain police procedural set in a weird early 60s "Outer Limits" universe riddled with secret conspiracies and old-school black-science. It's a Cop Story, but not like any one you've ever read before, suckers. I think you'll like it.

Buy it here. Or here, courtesy of the folks at Raw Dog Screaming Press.

And be quick about it!

That's about the coolest sounding thing I've ever heard. Ordered!

Aw, bless ya, man.

I was gonna mention WSB too, but I figured people might then assume it was some experimental cut-up thing or full of naked boys on roller-skates lol. What I tried to channel was Ed McBain as if he was using some WSB concepts - not the far-out Mayan drugs n mugwumps n shit, but that weird 'otherness' tone he sometimes adopts when dealing with authority figures, cops, etc as if they have access to hidden, arcane cop knowledge. You get a similar vibe in certain episodes of The Outer Limits. I always loved the way the WSB took some of the basic elements of pulp SF and turned them into something a bit odder and more off-colour.

It's a story dsigned to be read in Black and White. I've got some other things set in a similar fictional 'world' - in an odd 1950's/early 60's Precinct House - that i keep meaning to write, but have never quite got round to.
