SECRETS OF MY AMAZON AUTHOR PAGE
I finally got my Amazon Author Page done. It's a good guide for those of you who are collecting my work, or planning on giving the gift of Ernesto this Christmas/Atemoztli/New Baktun Season.
Most obvious are my novels Cortez on Jupiter, and Smoking Mirror Blues now available in Kindle Editions. Yeah, High Aztech is coming soon – I'm working on it, proofreading that Españáhuatl until my eyes are bloodshot. Stay tuned for details and updates!
The other items on the page are anthologies and magazines I have contributed to, so some explanation is required.
Alien Contact, edited by Marty Halpern included my story “Guerrilla Mural of a Siren's Song” – the story that I later exploded into Cortez on Jupiter.
My most infamous story, “The Frankenstein Penis” once again available in Love that Never Dies edited by M. Christain, an anthology of paranormal erotica on Kindle. And if you'd rather have it in hardcopy, the original Semiotext(e) SF edited by Rudy Rucker, Robert Anton Wilson, and Peter Lanborn Wilson is still available.
“Plan 9 in Outer Space,” a collaboration with my wife, Emily, is in Space Horrors: Full-Throttle Space Tales #4, edited by David Lee Summers. It's a tribute to Edward D. Wood, Jr. with zombies on a spaceship. Need I say more?
2020 Visions, edited by Rick Novy not only has my wild romp about radioactive marijuana, “Radiation is Groovy, Kill the Pigs,” but also my wife's speculative weight-loss drama, “If the Sun's at Five O'Clock, It Must be Yellow Daisies.”
Angel Body and Other Magic for the Soul, edited by Chris Reed and David Memmott, has an ahead-of-its-time satire of Arizona and border hysteria called “Burrito Meltdown.”
“Coyote Goes Hollywood” that plugs Native American mythology into Hollywood cartoonery is in Witpunk, edited by Claude Lalumière and Marty Halpern.
Tales of the Talisman, Volume 6, Issue 3, is where you can find “The Great Mars-A-Go-Go Mexican Standoff,” where I introduce Spike Gerswhin, interplanetary gumshoe.
In Voices for the Cure: A Speculative Fiction Anthology to Benefit the American Diabetes Association, edited by James Palmer, I introduced another character, Victor Theremin, the science fiction who writer who can no longer tell his life from sci-fi. He was also in the abovementioned “Radiation is Groovy, Kill the Pigs.”
All these stories have that special Ernesto madness, so consume away! Keep the Americano potlatch flowing!
