Michael Montoure's entire catalog of writing is available for $0.99 (well, okay, the anthologies are $2.99) for Kindle, and since I still had some cash left on my gift card account I got everything I didn't already have.

Which is a little piece of happy.

Yes, I also have several of these books in print copies (and signed, because he's awesome like that). So what?

I think the sale ends on the 31st, so if you want to get some of his stuff, now is the time.

And if you aren't familiar with his stuff - He's one of my all time favorite horror writers. His writing is dark, beautiful, sensual, haunting, and glorious. I am sad that the migraine is making me miss his reading tomorrow evening (Wayward Coffee House, go see him). One of the last times I made it to one, his words alone almost made me pass out (seriously, the world was getting a little grey and swimmy, with a bit of tunneling - and yes, he knows this and it gave him enough happy that he had glee and did a little dance because that is a bit of a coup).

For a buck, treat yourself to something awesome. His books are certainly worth their full price.

Plus, he's an awesome guy. And a good friend.

Just woke up, thought you meant a BUNDLE for 99c, and was v confused when I couldn't find it!

Does he write supernatural horror, or person-on-person horror? (I prefer the former -- I've spent a lifetime reading both, but I've had less appetite for the latter as life has become more difficult.)

What would you recommend as a first book to get a taste of his style?

I agree with all the things you've said! He wrote one of my favorite short stories! I haven't read his stuff in quite some time... I sadly do not posses a reader. *sigh* Might be HIGH time I invested!

Kindle's software is free for all devices. So you can have Kindle on your computer.

That's lovely news!!! <3 Do you have any idea if it works on phones at all... At least till I get some kind of a surface type device, I would use my phone more than anything. I'm still addicted to curling up with a good book, which can't really be done on my tower computer.

Which phone? I use Calibre for ebook management between devices and FBReader for android. If you'd like to stick with amazon, they've got a reading app for it. (It's in the google play store.)

I have an Android. :) I find myself on the bus a lot during commute and I think reading would be better than working during that time. FBReader sounds interesting.

I bought the three collections of short stories. I already had the novel.
