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.

For all of my friends who like urban decay and creepy locations - one of the folks ([livejournal.com profile] dark_fetus, whose website is Antiquity Echoes) i know through one of those communities has finally * released the book he made with his girlfriend(? maybe fiancee, I am not sure), and has been working on for years now. His work is GORGEOUS.

But more than just photographs, they have done the history of each of the location and talk about the stories there, so it's also about history and a little about ghost stories.

He also has a youtube channel - Antiquity Echoes, which I have previously pimped because it is SO FUCKING AMAZING.

I am a bit fan of his work and highly recommend it.

With all the moving and stuff going on, I won't be able to afford to get this for a few months and that makes me sad.


*link opens to the book on Amazon, but it is also available on Barnes and Noble, and from Skyhorse Publishing. It is also available on Walmart but I have OPINIONS about Walmart so I give no links there.
