New Chapbook: Creature Feature

Oh, loyal half-dozen readers, I keep forgetting to tell you that my newest chapbook is out. It's the first in a new series of chaps from the good people at ELJ publications. You can get it straight from me (signed) for the same price/shipping that they're offering. Or you can buy it directly from them. Here's a link to the "about" page, where you can read a little bit about it.

It's all about those early black and white monster movies, but there's nothing scary about it. And isn't the cover fabulous?

I think it is. But then, I woke up with hair pretty similar to that this morning, so maybe I'm biased.
