The Squid is back.

Space Squid Gone Wild is the Best of Space Squid collection you have all been waiting for. Yeah yeah, my story “Bad Amy,” is in it, in which I reveal the supernatural cause of the 2000 NASDAQ stock plunge. Remember that one? Before the latest recession that incinerated our life savings and future security? Well, its seeds were planted in the 2000 crash.

And there are dozens of other fine writers who have embraced the Squid.

Best of all, this is an e-book collection, in which case people who would normally look askance upon your choice of reading material wouldn’t ever have to know. I mean, check this cover out:

How can you resist?

Space Squid has just been annointed as a representation of Bizarro Fiction, and has been cited in a Wikipedia entry on same, along with Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens. Here’s your chance to see what all the fuss is about.

I am pleased and stoked to be a part of the Best of Space Squid. You can buy it for the Kindle here.

glad you like the cover 🙂 the original concept was Matthew’s and then I lavished it up in Pshop.

I’m sorry I didn’t get to see you and the Space Squid guys at ArmadilloCon. I was madly packing and getting the house ready to sell. We are moving to Lakewood Colorado! Jack is up there already and starting his new job. I’m here selling the house (it’s already under contract), so I’ll be leaving after the closing–which I hope is soon. You’re welcome to stay with us if you ever want to attend Mile High Con.

Hey Sandy,
So you are leaving the 100 degree temps of Austin for fresh crisp mountain air? Traitor! Congrats on Jack’s new job, and you know, I just might have to take you up on staying with you for Mile High Con.

Keep in touch!
