Book Pimpin'

Our friend Doselle has an awesome story out in the anthology THE DARKER MASK, and he's signing this week (on my birthday, no less!).  If you're in the LA area, check it out.  If not, well, buy it anyway.  It promises to be really cool. . . 

~picture to come!~


Just a reminder. The book signing for THE DARKER MASK (Tor Books 2008) is this weekend. Information is found below.  
DATE: SATURDAY, AUGUST 23RD.
TIME: 3-5PM
WHAT: A BOOK SIGNING FOR THE DARKER MASK 
 
WHERE: MELTDOWN COMICS in HOLLYWOOD.
                 7522 Sunset Blvd. 
                 Los Angeles, Ca 90046
                 323. 851.7223
Publishers Weekly describes The Darker Mask as: "Themed along the grayer areas of superhero fiction, this anthology of 18 original stories nonetheless covers a wide spectrum. Deceptively simple and entertaining while never skimping on serious topics, this tight anthology will satisfy any superhero enthusiast." I think that's likely true and, if not, the anthology features stories by well-known luminaries in the mystery and science-fiction genres, including Walter Mosley (Devil in a Blue Dress), so I'm sure there'll be something in it even for the discerning lit-snobs among you. 
There's coverage and further information available to be found here at the LA TIMES link: DM Book Signing

Just got my copy from the library. I really enjoyed Doselle's story, "Housework." I loved his hero, Birdie, a house cleaner who finds out who killed her best friend.

What wasn't mentioned in the blurb and I think deserves special mention are the illustrations in the book. While this isn't a comic book or graphic novel, the illustrations run the gamut of styles for that genre and some are just plain amazing.
