Or whatever we're going to call it...

Happy Twenty-ten, or two thousand ten, or whatever we're going to call it.

2010 ! WOW!

I admit I've been a terrible failure as a blogger. So terrible, in fact, that I can't make a reliable New Year's resolution to do better over the next twelve months.

However, I gave a reading on New Years Eve at Burlington, Vermont's annual First Night celebration, and later today or tomorrow I'm going to post it here. It's a brief collection of Vermont's venerable weird tales.

Also, while I was NOT working on my blog, I did manage to get two books published in 2009: The Vermont Monster Guide (wonderfully illustrated by my pal Steve Bissette), and NOT YET DEAD, a long overdue collection of my short fiction. They are published by University Press of New England (UPNE) and Bat Books, respectively.

You can see a lot about the Monster Guide at Steve's blog;
just go there ( http://srbissette.com/) and click on the book cover.

Stay tuned. . .
