Outer Dark podcast, and “A Spectral Hue” update

A SPECTRAL HUE has a release date of June 18. It’s currently at the page proof stage and ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) have been sighted. I have seen the glorious cover art Word Horde plans to use and can’t wait to share it with you.

In the meantime, you can hear me read an excerpt of the book at the Outer Dark Symposium, along with readings by Kristi DeMeester (fellow Word Horder), Damien Angelica Walters (practically local to me–outside of Baltimore to my DC) and Michael Wehunt (fellow lover of ambient music). A presentation on the history of the Swamp Thing comics and panel on the role nature plays in Weird Fiction follows.
