Can We Entice You with a New Horror Novella?

Yo! Gard here! I thought I'd stop by and let you all know that the folks at Pendragon Press in Wales have given me the green light! I can announce that "Bite", my debut novella, is now officially available for pre-order! :) YEAHHH! I hope you like it! Here's the blog post at my writer's blog, aptly titled Gardner Goldsmith dot com. Spread the word! Pendragon has the UK and EU rights, but they will ship the book anywhere, so US, Canada, Australia, Mexico, it's all good, fellow Conspirators!

Here's more info on the book, and a couple blog posts that show you the amazing artwork and nice blurbs from some of my favorite authors!

Richard Matheson, the Single Greatest Genre Writer in Modern Times, Has Died

With a career that spanned westerns, science-fiction, fantasy, horror, suspense and even non-fiction, Richard Matheson has had the greatest influence on contemporary genre television, books, and film of any writer. Rest in peace, Mr. Matheson. You changed many of our lives with your ideas and style, your drive to create and entertain, your drive to investigate the worlds beyond this world.

From the UA Army to writing to support a family, he never looked back. A founding member of the unofficial California School, Mr. Matheson influenced everyone from Stephen King (who said he would not be a writer if it weren't for Mr. Matheson), to F. Paul Wilson.

For those unfamiliar, a starter:

Author Ray Bradbury Has Passed Away, RIP

The author of such astounding work as "Farenheit 451" and "Something Wicked This Way Comes", has died. He was productive until his final days. A great stylist, his beautiful form of writing was matched by his stories themselves. He has left an indellible mark on the world and the fiction of the world. Rest in peace, Mr. Bradbury.

Our Friend, Author Leslie Banks, Has Died.

She was a gracious person and talented writer. She came down with a very deadly form of cancer. Rest in peace, LA Banks.

Good New Books!

Yep! The penultimate Repairman Jack Novel is OUT! Take a look-see! And remember, the NYT "bestsellers" list is compiled using a strange, mystical algorythm in which its not just numbers, but numbers in the FIRST TWO WEEKS that determine whether something is listed. If you order these now, you help cement a better position for the books!

And try this on for size. Stephen Jones does great work compiling the best in the horror field!
