Don't miss the announcement of JayCon X [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — My 10th annual 37th birthday party, plus my end-of-chemo celebration, next July.

Something weird this way comes — Rick Klaw with a piece on the New Weird, in which I am briefly mentioned.

A reader reacts to The New Weird — Including comments on my Dark Towns story, "The Lizard of Ooze."

The new issue of Locus has a very interesting and thoughtful Paul Witcover review of my recent novel, Madness of Flowers — Review isn't on the site, unfortunately. Must see the dead tree edition.

Interzone 226 is out, with my story "Human Error"

?otD: Why me? There must be a thousand other guys.
