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

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.

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.

I'm rereading Colin Wilson's The Mind Parasites and see that in the introduction he calls E.H. Visiak's Medusa "one of the finest supernatural novels ever written." Amazon has some $100+ used copies available, but I find no sign of an ebook. If a copy could be found, it might be a nice project for Wildside.See More

Megapack suggestion - EE Doc Smith

Ah, the memories - The Lensmen, the Skylark of Space, the Family d'lambert, the spacehounds of IPC - all wonderful books - and to have all of them presented together in a megapack would just be the icing on the cake.See More
