Just turned in the final story for my anthology, Warriors and Wenches. It will be published by Melange Books, probably mid-June 2011. Written under my pseudonym, J.T. Macleod, it contains five stories of historical and supernatural adventure, romance, and eroticism. From medieval Japan to WWII and present-day Hollywood (with Arthurian Knights!). Put the date in your calendar.
Bone Machines has been receiving 5 star ratings on itunes. Wonderful comments, too. Thanks so much to those who’ve rated, and posted comments.
The publishers of the ebook version of Bone Machines, Just Imagine It Ink, have a terrific contest open for emerging authors. Got a book in you – give them a go!
Having listened to Scott Sigler’s fantastic, original and deeply weird horror podcast, Infected, I will never look at a three-sided polygon in the same way ever again. Scott is also a good guy (if a little strange), who plugged Bone Machines in episode 6 of his Galactic Football novel, The Starter. Scott – you are a star. But I still think you’re really weird. Folks – buy Scott’s books – right now!
Move over Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade, there’s a new PI in town – check out Nicholas Stanton’s The Gumshoe Diaries, for the start of what promises to be a terrific new noir series out of LA.
I’ve decided to offer the ebook of Dr North’s Wound and Other Stories for a limited period, at the new price of $2.99. Nab it now while the price is low. Here are some reviews of stories within it:
The Anatomy of Seahorses: “With the possible exception of the [Dean R.] Koontz story, The Anatomy of Seahorses by John Dodds is the very best the Horror Express Magazine has to offer.” – Peter Tenant, Whispers of Wickedness
Dr North’s Wound: “John Dodds is one of the most promising new writers I have read for some time. I highly recommend his work.” Michael Moorcock
Second version, available as a free ebook from smashwords, published by my great friends at the admirable Just ImaginitInk.
Adventures in Scifi Publishing said: “a fantastic page-turner…each page is filled with vibrant description and seethes with tension.”
…or a nunnery, if you can’t handle the rough stuff. I highly recommend Donna’s Scottish crime fiction blog, Big Beat from Badsville.
A great review of Bone Machines on the Adventures in SciFi Publishing website.
