Donations from Bad Moon Books

The lovely folks at Bad Moon Books were kind enough to donate a bunch of signed books for the Heifer Fundraiser.

Peter Straub gives kudos to this one, saying: "In Miranda, John R. Little uses crisp writing and a masterly sense of pace to structure a brilliant short novel filled with invention, courage, and baffled love."

  • A copy of Wings of the Butterfly by John Urbancik with an introduction by Weston Ochse. Signed by John Urbancik and Weston Ochse.

Author Tim Lebbon calls this story "one of the most intense reading experiences of the year," and Weston Ochse, who introduces the book, says it's "destined to become the heart's blood of were-fiction."

Illustrated and signed by former Disney animator John Pierro.

The back of this book describes it as "a cautionary tale of the careful balances that exist between nature, magic, and technology... and the forces that bring them together."

According to award-winning author Gary A. Braunbeck, "In both the setting of the Wormwood Scrubs prison and its colorful, even tragic, inmates, Simon Janus has created a terse, tense, and powerful novella that closes in on the reader like the worst case of claustrophobia you've ever had. An excellent achievement, and a real milestone in Janus' career."

Kealan Patrick Burke is praised by Publishers Weekly as "a newcomer worth watching," and Booklist calls him "one of the most clever and original talents in contemporary horror."

  • A copy of The Confessions of St. Zach by Gene O'Neill. Signed by the author.

The editor of SF Weekly & Sci-Fi Channel Magazine says that Gene O'Neill's "words bristle with a muscular intensity that strengthens any book or magazine lucky to contain him."

How can you not want a copy of a book called Bitchfight? Author Jeff Strand says, "It's a Mike Arnzen story, which by definition means that it is a) utterly demented, and b) utterly brilliant."

According to author Brian Keene, "Vampire Outlaw of the Milky Way is what would happen if Ray Bradbury and Lin Carter got together to write a space opera. Only Weston Ochse could write something like this. In lesser hands, it would fall apart."

Award winning author Owl Goingback says, "Steve Vernon is one of the finest new talents of horror and dark fiction."

  • A copy of Johnny Gruesome by Gregory Lamberson. Signed by the author. Signed by cover artist Zach McCain. Introduced and signed by Jeff Strand.

Dark Scribe Magazine says: "With its fast cars, leather jackets, and wholesome small town vibe, Johnny Gruesome feels like the drive-in movie you never saw. Lamberson saturates the grisly ordeal with an ever- present sense of fun and melodrama - meant here in the best possible way."

  • A copy of The Not Quite Right Reverend Cletus J. Diggs and the Currently Accepted Habits of Nature by David Niall Wilson. Signed by the author. Introduced and signed by Elizabeth Massie.

Publisher's Weekly tells us, "Wilson's prose is smooth and powerful, carrying its allegorical weight with grace."

I can't believe there is still more to come. I've just figured out that drooling in the office gets some strange looks from people.

Note to self: Don't drool on quotes.

I love that so many people are giving to the fundraiser both in cash and in kind. On the other hand, I miss your regular blog posts.

Hope all is well and happy in Pat-land.

Depending on how you count prizes, there's about fifty non-Pat prizes. And they're all pretty amazing...

Just donated $60 to the "Patrick Rothfuss Pig-Chick-Goatfuss Pledge Drive."

Quite amazing how many book donations you've received. And how much money you've raised. Good job!

Wanted to send a T-bone, but I hope they like bacon :)

Be sure to save some cash to hire an assistant to sort out all the prizes. Else we'll never see the next books!

Actually, just had another thought about that that, going to send you a message through the contact us form.
