    1. Update 5 10 17 The Shirley Jackson Project won second place in the Graphic Novels category at the 60th annual New England Book Show on 5 9 17 Congrats to artist Michael Fahy for his beautiful design work, and to Ninth Art Press Now that my latest anthology has been published and is beginning to get out into the world, I finally sat down and read it, cover to cover Overall I m really very happy with it it had been a dream project of mine for a long time The contributors among them Josh Simmons, A [...]



    2. A beautiful, haunting, charming and eclectic tribute to an author whose work I am now very interested in There are so many gems in here, I m not going to bother calling any out Magnificently curated Definitely worth reading if you love comics, literature, horror, autobio, and or Shirley Jackson
