Just a very, very quick note that the Australian anthology BLURRING THE LINE (cf. November 3, July 13, et al.) is still on track for publication Thursday, November 26.  That is, at least in digital form according to Editor Marty Young, who adds he’s “still seeking the publication date of the print copy, but that won’t be far away.”  And, possibly more to the point from where I sit, payment for my story, “The Good Work,” due on publication, arrived late yesterday!

“The Good Work” has to do with jolly Dickensian Christmas urchins and warily watching out for witchcraft.  But one can see for oneself in a few days (at least electronically) by pressing here.

Today’s email brought an update from Cohesion Press for BLURRING THE LINE (cf. March 23, February 7), the Australian anthology that asks the question:  “Do you really know what’s real and what isn’t?”  According to Editor Marty Young, “[r]eal life kind of got in the way for a few months,” but noblurringw it’s on schedule for publication September or October this year.  And, as another nod to real life, the book will be dedicated to recently passed on, on July 11,  author and four-time Stoker Award® winner Tom Piccirilli, “who contributed with a pretty hard hitting story that’s incredibly close to home.”  Also the table of contents should be finalized soon, and will be announced here as soon as I know it.

My part here is called “The Good Work,” a treatise on witchcraft in 1850s London.  Or is that witch-hunting?  And, along with a call for updated author bios and pictures, there will also be a limited hardcover edition signed by the authors, more on which will be announced as well as details become known.

Latish this evening the contract came from Cohesion Press for my story “The Good Work” for publication in BLURRING THE LINE (see February 7).  This is the Australian anthology that asks the question “Do you know what’s real and what isn’t?”  So concerning my story, one might consider whethblurringer there were witches in 1850s London.  And if there were witches, then what of witch hunters?

Going back to the original blurb, “BLURRING THE LINE will take you into the far reaches of your darkness, without letting go of reality.  It will make you believe.”  So following some initial delays, the book is now one more step closer to publication, originally set, according to Editor Marty Young, for the “third quarter 2015.”  Then, to quote tonight’s email, once contract details are settled all around he (and, hence, I) “will let you know the TOC, and we can begin the promotional train.”
