There’s a lot of Felix Renn stuff going on over the next few months, enough that I’ve declared this the Fall of Felix! (To be spoken in the same boisterous tone as George Constanza saying “The Summer of George!”)
Here’s the rundown:
In the next week or so, Supernatural Tales #22 will be out, featuring the Felix Renn vampire story, “Midnight Blonde.” (Speaking of vampires, swing over to Speculating Canada and read an article I wrote on Black Lands vampires called “Vamping Things Up.”)
On October 1st, SuperNOIRtural Tales will be available for pre-order from Burning Effigy Press. A very cool preview will be available for electronic download at the same time (more on that later). SuperNOIRtural Tales will include the three Felix Renn novellas (“Temporary Monsters,” “The Ash Angels,” and “Black-Eyed Kids”), the short story “My Body” (featured in the Chilling Tales anthology), and a brand-new, 50,000-word novella called “The Brick.” Other extras include story notes, a history of the Black Lands, and an introduction by Mike Carey. The book will be out in November, just in time for the World Fantasy Convention in Richmond Hill, which I will be attending.
And finally, coming out in December (yeah, technically it’s winter not fall, so sue me), the anthology Fungi will include the story “Out of the Blue,” which features Felix Renn and his haunted real-estate selling foil Jerry Baldwin.
There’s some other cool stuff coming later this year and early next year — a new Black Lands story in Chilling Tales 2, as well as Felix’s first foray into electronic self-publishing — but this should be enough to hold you for the time being.
Thanks to everyone for their continued support of my work. There’s going to be a lot going on this fall (“The Fall of Felix!”), in terms of book launches, readings, and conventions. If you live in the area, I hope you’ll come out and say hello.
