Well, December is here, and the holidays are right around the corner.Â For me, that means a lot of weekends spent in my pajamas and plenty of worries about what to buy so and so and how on earth I’m going to afford it.Â It also means I can put egg nogÂ in my coffee (when I’m not putting pumpkin spice creamer in it).
The first issue of Brian Keene’s newsletter, Of Keene Interest, has been released.Â It contains my short story “Work Pit Four,” which is possibly the best peace of writing I’ve put together in the past few years.Â Of course, if you’re not already a subscriber, you’re kind of screwed.Â Sorry about that.
Looking for a Christmas present for that special someone?Â A not-so-special someone?Â Yourself?Â Well, maybe you should head over to the bookstore and do a little shopping!
As things head toward the end of the year around here, I’ve got to make a few blog-related decisions.Â Namely, I have to figure out if I’m going to post a top ten books of the year.Â I’m always behind on my reading, so it’s usually a Top Ten Books I Read This Year list.Â Normally, that doesn’t bother me, but this year saw the release of both King’s Under the Dome and Simmons’ Drood, and I haven’t had a chance to read either.Â Really, it just feels kind of ridiculous to write a year’s best when I haven’t read the two biggest horror releases of the year.
So that’s where the first full week of December finds us. Enjoy!
