The 2017 Bram Stoker Award Final Ballot and Gwendolyn Kiste!

When I finally joined the whole internet nonsense three years ago one of the things that happened is that I found out about writer Gwendolyn Kiste.

Her name would pop-up on Facebook from time to time, always with people I went to school with at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I quickly deduced (’cause I’m schmaht like that) that she was married to a former schoolmate who, perhaps wisely, has eschewed social media. He was one of the 1400 Bills that were there at the time. Largest concentration in the nation in 1991.

Well, turns out Gwendolyn was a writer. And being a reader, I read some of her stuff and really dug it and let her know and… KAPOW, internet friendship was born. Well, acquaintance anyway. I don’t want to speak for her.

So over the past few years she has been productive as all get out and last year released her first collection of stories, And Her Smile Will Untether the Universe.

Today the final ballot for the 2017 Bram Stoker Awards was announced and in the category of Superior Achievement in a Fiction Collection is that book. That is pretty. god. damned. fantastic.

I wish Gwendolyn the best of luck and no matter what happens (you goin’ down, Joe Hill!) she has a reader for life in me.

Get this collection. And her recent book Pretty Marys All in a Row. You won’t regret it.

The Visitor at the Door

Adam sat at the kitchen table. His elbow firmly planted on its surface, hand of the same arm holding up his head. A sigh escaped his mouth as he slowly blinked.

“I’m so bored.” He drew out the so.

“Nothing ever happens around here,” the twelve year old said to the empty room.

Minutes ticked away.

Three loud knocks came from the door.

SiouxperCon 2017 Part Two: Hey! I Didn’t Make A Fool Of Myself!

Or did I? Meh, probably.

Part one HERE.

The guests at the con were a darn fine line-up of talent and as cool as everybody was, I think even the other guests would say the top of the heap was the multi-Eisner award wining creator of the fantastic comic Fables, Bill Willingham! If you haven’t read Fables, you should.
