SOON TO BE RELEASED FROM GREY MATTER PRESS, “ROOSTER” BY JOHN C. FOSTER IS GOING TO BE ONE HELL OF A WILD RIDE!

Hello everyone, it’s your old pal Skull sharing some exciting news. Thanks to Grey Matter Press, I’m getting a peek at John C. Foster’s upcoming release Rooster, which be released on July 20, 2021.Many of you are already familiar with his work Mister White and previous releases from Perpetual Motion Machine Press. For those fans of crime fiction and horror who aren’t familiar with John C. Foster and Grey Matter Press, you need to change that right now! In just the first few chapters of this book, I’ve been fiercely yanked into the dark underworld that exists all around us, whether we can see it or not. Rooster is a tough guy who’s almost ghost-like in visibility, but harder than brass knuckles to the face. This novel moves fast and I think it’s going to sell fast, so be sure to order a copy soon from your favorite bookseller or head on over to www.greymatterpress.com and/or www.johnfosterfiction.com for more information. Tell them that Damaged Skull Reviewer sent you! Please follow my blog and stay tuned for the review, coming your way soon.

CURRENTLY ENJOYING THE SHORT HORROR COLLECTION “SEVEN EXHUMATIONS” BY JAMES G. CARLSON AND TERROR TRACT. REVIEW COMING SOON!

Hello friends! It’s your old pal Skull again with some great news. Author James G. Carlson has sent this fine collection of his short horror fiction to the Skullcave and it looks like my little friend, Skellicat, has taken a liking to it. We’re currently working on the review write up and it should be live in 5 days or less if hell doesn’t freeze over and the creek don’t rise.

Speaking of great things, check out that handsome typewriter that SEVEN EXHUMATIONS is resting on. Fans of the great Richard Chizmar might recognize this Remington Quiet-Riter as being just like the one he posted on his Twitter account a while back. Kind of cool, right? The big difference between our typewriters is that mine is still in daily use while Richard’s is under a pile of shoes in his closet-a sweet memory of pounding those keys on the way to his current status in the writing world, something we all aspire to. Just a fun aside there, but if you like Richard Chizmar’s work, there’s a pretty good chance you will also dig what James G. Carlson is doing, so check him out!

Thanks for visiting Damaged Skull Writer and Reviewer. See you soon!

PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT MY CREATIVE NONFICTION PIECE “FLEA MARKET SPECIAL” IS INCLUDED IN ISSUE 14 OF AJI MAGAZINE!

It’s always nice to have good news to share on a Friday and this is very good news for me because I’m beginning to get noticed as a cross-genre writer and poet. Hopefully this will open up work in more markets and I’m planning to start an additional blog which will be more about poetry and literary stories, including nonfiction. Neither is better than the other, and I’m still writing both, but cramming everything together isn’t working very well. Here’s to better visibility and less confusion in the future!

“Flea Market Special” can be read for free by going to http://www.ajimagazine.com and downloading the Pdf. It’s a true story about when I spent weekends trying to sell the remains of our failed business and assorted stuff. But, I’m just a small part of this excellent collection which contains really cool art, poetry, and prose. They are also currently taking submissions, should you wish to get some good exposure for your work. The editors do an excellent job and are super friendly. Check it out and let me know what you think!
