Lastly, Hannah’s story “Gamer” appears in Spirit’s Tincture Issue 2, available free online, and also in print.

Whew!

Pedro  Iniguez

Pedro’s first novel has recently released! Be sure to pick up a copy–Pedro is a very talented author, and this promises to be something special.

GREATER LOS ANGELES 2166 CE… WHEN A PROMINENT BUSINESSMAN is brutally murdered, Detective Audric Devereux is assigned the case. But nothing could have prepared him for a puppet master’s deadly game, a game that turns innocent women into mindless, cybernetic killing machines. Now, delving deep into the streets, Devereux must weave through the crazed, violent underbelly of the City of Angels, as death stalks the innocent and guilty alike.

Pedro’s story “Killadelphia” was just recently announced for Altered States II. Keep your eyes out for it.

Josh Reynolds

Speaking of remarkably busy authors…If anyone’s going to outpace Hannah, it’s Josh. In just the last few weeks, he’s released, announced, or otherwise had his fingers in the pies of the following:

Josh’s novel, Fabius Bile: Primogenitor, is available now from Black Library! (And on Amazon as well.) As he describes it, it’s “the perfect Christmas gift for Grandma!”

Josh was also recently interviewed at Black Library Live 2016.

His other new novel, Nagash: The Undying King, is available now~exclusively from Warhammer World.

The third of Josh’s four Advent 2016 stories released recently. Find it, his other advent stories, and an Advent subscription here.

Brian M. Sammons and Glynn Owen Barrass’ recent anthology, The Children of Gla’aki, was discussed at length on Microphones of Madness. You can listen to Part One here, and Part Two here. Josh’s story, a Royal Occultist tale, is discussed at length in Part Two.

John Linwood Grant

Occult Detective Quarterly #1 is currently at the printers!

A contents list has recently been revealed as well.

If Sam Gafford, Travis Neisler, Dave Brzeski and I don’t go insane first, ODQ1 will now have even more in it than expected, including EIGHT chunky stories, one of which is a novelette! Looks like 96 pages of goodness, including styles/eras such as Classic PI, Edwardian, Cosmic Horror, 1920s, Victorian hauntings and contemporary chills.
