We have completed the sale of my Dads literary estate and are looking forward to seeing his works republished by Wildside Press.

I think there will be a lot of younger readers that will enjoy seeing some of his hard to find works in circulation once more.

MY FIRST BOOK: GIANTS OF THE GENRE

My advice for beginning writers looking at getting their first novel published: hang tough, it’s one hell of a ride.

An author’s first book is like a first kiss – something you’ll never forgot as long as you live. After having nearly twenty books published, my first book still has a special place in my heart. It was Giants of the Genre published in 2003 by Wildside Press.

The story doesn’t really start here; it starts about a decade…

Forum changes

Wildside Press has hosted a forum for mystery movie discussions for 15+ years. I had hoped to move most of the discussions here, but the integration is not going as smoothly as I had hoped. For the time being, I have added a link to both the new forums and the old forums under the "Forums" tab for convenience.

R.A. Lafferty is one of those writers who are memorable but just can't be imitated: sui generis. Since his death publishing activity seems to have dried up. A goodly portion of his books were small…Continue

Megapack daydream: Rafael Aloysius Lafferty

R.A. Lafferty is one of those writers who are memorable but just can't be imitated: sui generis. Since his death publishing activity seems to have dried up. A goodly portion of his books were small press. With the exception of a very few short stories which probably slipped into public domain, Lafferty is unavailable electronically. Does Wildside have any idea who runs Lafferty's estate, or is this one of those situations where the writer is doomed to obscurity because those with the rights…See More
