Yes, it's been a while. Sorry about that. So here I am, bringing you up to date on events in Bestwickland. There's a fair bit, so I'm breaking it up into three chunks: it's all go over here.
The first one concerns two of my favourite writers. The news is sad in respect of one of them, but great in respect of the other.
|Richard Matheson: He was legend.|
I'd loved his work for decades and had always considered him one of the greats; as with Ray Bradbury's passing last year, even though I never met the man, his passing brings with it an acute sense of personal loss.
This Is Horror are publishing tributes to the man at the moment: you can find mine here.
On a happier note, I recently got to interview the poet, novelist, short story writer, artist and tattooist Joolz Denby, one of my favourite writers, not to mention a hell of a role model.
|Joolz Denby: Another legend. Oh, and me.|
