I’ll be headed down east this Friday to do a reading to benefit the Lewis Dana Hill Memorial Library in Lovell, Maine. If you’re in the mood for a story, I’ve got you covered. Here are the details:
Friday, August 10th,
Lewis Dana Hill Memorial Library
Hope to see you there.

This is out on Wednesday:
Richard Matheson and my Dad and yers truly are all up there on the cover, but while I’m proud to be there and to have been a part of this thang, a lot of credit for this comic book adaptation lies with scribe Chris Ryall, and artists Nelson Daniel and Rafa Garres, who brought their A-Game to “Throttle” and “Duel,” the two stories that compose RAGE. Check it out if you get a chance. Hope you have a helluva lot of fun with it.

Big thanks to everyone who ordered signed LOCKE & KEY vol 5: CLOCKWORKS and other books from RiverRun Books. There’s been a delay with Diamond distributing, so I won’t have a chance to sit down and sign and doodle stuff until next Monday the 13th at earliest. I appreciate your patience and don’t want you to think we forgot about you – will see to this ASAP.

Because you needed to know, here are the five best Bond films, IN ORDER. Feel free to discuss the matter in the comments thread. Everyone is welcome to their own opinion, as long as you understand that opinions that differ from mine are wrong.
5. Dr. No. The Original. Maybe the sexiest of all the Bond flicks, and the perfect Connery mix of suavity and brutality.
4. The Spy Who Loved Me. Cos of the underwater car.
3. On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Because Diana Rigg. And because it’s the most authentically human of all the films. Oh and cos Lazenby deserved an Oscar for pulling off the kilt.
2. Goldeneye. Cos Sean Bean killed as an evil 00 agent; the savage yin to Bond’s yang.
1. Casino Royale. Like there’s any question. Craig is to Bond what Tennant was to Who: better than perfect.
