mellisaclarke_eyesGood news, bad news kind of morning so far.

On the plus side, The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume Two: Die Glocke is going to be in the running for the Georgia Author of the Year Awards. I’ve previously been nominated for Rabbit Heart and The Adventures of Lazarus Gray Volume One. It’s always nice to be included in the competition!

On the negative side, there was a poor review of my old novella Guan-Yin and the Horrors of Skull Island over on Amazon. I’m used to that, though — Guan-Yin is by far the least-popular of my works and I agree that it’s the most heavily flawed. It was also published by Wild Cat Books and they didn’t really do any editing to it so it’s just a big ol’ mess. But it’s my name on the cover and I take the blame lol

I’m continuing to work on Lazarus Gray Volume Four and it’s going well, I think.

Just finished reading The Shadow Strikes, one of the “Belmont Shadows” that were published in the Sixties. I’ll be reviewing it on The Shadow Fan Podcast this week, so stay tuned. The Belmont stuff is…. um… interesting. 😉

Also just finished Going Clear, an expose on Scientology. Fascinating reading — and highly disturbing. I also completed book one of the two-book reprinting I have of Judge Dredd: Necropolis. I loved it! One of the best Dredd stories I’ve read so far. Can’t wait to dive into book two.

Still thinking about Django Unchained — what a great movie! Brutal, hilarious and touching, all in the same flick. You can’t beat that.
