Happy Halloween Everyone!

I guess the official holiday season kicks off this weekend with Halloween on Sunday. Saw my first Christmas commercial last night, unbelievable. My kids are getting older now, so each Halloween is extra special, because there won't be anymore trick or treating for them in a few years. This is a bummer, but another fact of life I must face.

In the writing business, here are a few great stories I have read this week. Check them out, ya hear now.

Dave Barber's An Urban Myth
Matthew C. Funk's Certain Saints
Chad Eagleton's The Price of Copper
PD Brazill's Guns of Brixton You can read it in PDF, or buy it and a collection of other crime stories HERE

Adrian Mckinty has a pretty wild video regarding Charlie Chaplin and time travel HERE

Declan Burke has a nice interview with Eoin McNamee HERE and a great take on the Irish Book Awards HERE

Myself,  I have a story pending at A Twist of Noir, one submitted to Thrillers, Killers 'n' Chillers, wrote a couple scenes for the next novel, and have started a new crime short story.

Oh yeah, special thanks to Peter Rozovsky over at Detectives Beyond Borders, who snagged me a picture of (be still my heart) Crista Faust at Bouchercon 2010 HERE

Have Great Halloween Everyone!


  1. Thanks for the mention, mate. Glad you liked it.

  2. I loved it. That and "Final Cut" kicked mucho ass. Your writing style is the kind I love to read. The more I get into reading / learning the "crime noir" style, the more I find it is soemthing that I have been striving to both read and write, but I didn't know existed. This has been one hell of a great year for me, because of all the cool people I have met!

  3. Last two years have been the same for me, Sean. this old interweb isn't the work of the devil that I thought it was. Well, not all the time!

  4. I must have fallen behind on my blog-trolling because of all these conventions. Otherwise I'd have replied earlier.

    I need to correct one misapprehension on your part, though: The Christa Faust photo was for ME, so back off, pal.
