Where in the hell am I?

Snurched from suricattus... a strangely apropos result for Valentine's Day.

The Dante's Inferno Test has banished you to the Second Level of Hell!

"You have come to a place mute of all light, where the wind bellows as the sea does in a tempest. This is the realm where the lustful spend eternity. Here, sinners are blown around endlessly by the unforgiving winds of unquenchable desire as punishment for their transgressions. The infernal hurricane that never rests hurtles the spirits onward in its rapine, whirling them round, and smiting, it molests them. You have betrayed reason at the behest of your appetite for pleasure, and so here you are doomed to remain. Cleopatra and Helen of Troy are two that share in your fate."

Here is how you matched up against all the levels:
Purgatory (Repenting Believers)Very Low
Level 1 - Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers)Moderate
Level 2 (Lustful)Extreme
Level 3 (Gluttonous)High
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious)Very Low
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy)Moderate
Level 6 - The City of Dis (Heretics)Very High
Level 7 (Violent)High
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers)Moderate
Level 9 - Cocytus (Treacherous)Moderate

A small shine on my halo...

The February 14th issue of Publisher's Weekly has a starred review of my collection Dogs in the Moonlight from Prime Books.

I quote immodestly:

"By turns horrific and hilariously funny (or both), these beautifully written stories feature strong characters, a well-delineated sense of place and a powerfully skewed vision of the world."
