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.

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

Forum changes

Posted by John Betancourt on April 5, 2012 at 10:53pm 0 Comments

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.

Redder Than Blood Question

Does anybody know if there are plans for an audiobook release of the expanded Redder Than Blood: Tales from the Sisters Grimmer?  My wife has been telling me about the original for 30 years and unfortunately, she lost her copy in 1987.  As I went blind 8 years ago, I am absolutely dependent on audiobooks.  I know other Tanith Lee novels are available on Audible, most notibly the spectacular Tales of the Flat Earth (Death's Master et al.).  It is unfortunate that Audible will no longer…See More

Fredric Brown Megapack

 I read the first Fredric Brown Megapack last month and I enjoyed it thoroughly.  I picked up the second Fredric Brown Megapack, but I noticed an anomoly in that the story Contact in the second pack is the same as Earthmen Bearing Gifts in the first pack.  Not being familar with the full extent of his work, is this a whoops in that my download (via Amazon) has the wrong story and somehow Earthman Bearing Gifts was duplicated?Thanks in advance for your help in this matter.-wayne-  See More

another ridiculous Megapack suggestion

Every hear of Carroll John Daly? He's considered the proto-hardboiled crime writer. His stuff reads a bit like Mickey Spillane except for a quasi-prepubescent discomfort with sex in line with decency standards of the time. (The Race Williams stories in particular feature a great femme fatale known as the Flame, but don't expect Race and Flame to share more than a suppressed attraction.) If Daly's hero (Race Williams or Three Gun Terry Mack or Satan Hall, etc.) doesn't drill a couple bad guys in…See More

"I'd love to see a Megapack of L. P. Davies (1914-88) a British author who wrote some brilliant novels about small-town terror and spooky aliens long before Stephen King. "

Robert Sheckley ebooks

Good news for Robert Sheckley fans: Open Road Media has just electronicized 27 Sheckley books, including my favorite The Journey of Joenes. My only small complaint is that only one of Sheckley's five Stephen Dain secret agent thrillers made the cut, the fourth, White Death. I would argue that its predecessor, Live Gold, was the best of the lot. Maybe later. All titles seem to be available in both epub and Kindle formats, from Amazon, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, and Kobo.See More
