I, for one, am incredibly geeked to see this come out (and a big congrats to Cthulhudude!). I may have to fight with Tom over who gets to do the layout for this one, him or me...

Kevin, i hope you enjoy the rest. You certainly deserve it.

Hello all,

Just wanted to point out to one and all that a couple of authors specifically asked if their story made the final cut, and this is how they know they're in, and why they've been making announcements (I told 'em they could spill der beanses). I'm going to start emailing the rest of the contributors this weekend, with permission and payment details. So if you sent me a story but haven't heard from me yet, that's almost certainly GOOD news, and I promise I'll be getting to you soon.

I'll be working with Tom on the official content and release details as soon as we get everybody on board. Stay tuned, folks, I think it's going to be another winner.

Happy Grue Year to all!

Having heard the line up first hand (yeah, its nice to have fiends in high places), I must agree. One story, in particular, (and not my own, BTW) sounds like it is AMAZING and I cannot wait to get my grubby little tentacles on a copy of the book so I can read it!

Oh you bastard! ;-P Hey I can't be held responsible, it was Near Years Eve after all. Anyway...

That looks like a killer lineup. I am thrilled to be among such good company. DBD 2 is going to be one hell of a book and I can't wait for it to come out.

Drinking a 40. And watching what appears to be a Paul Walker flick. On New Year's Eve.

Words fail me. :lol:

Hey the 40 and the flannel was me "kicking it old school". Once I saw one, I had to break out the other. I graduated high school in '92, after all.

As for the flick, hell no it's not Paul Walker. It is the (just slightly) better Timothy Olyphant from The Crazies remake. I know that, although I don't remember it, because someone else asked me about what was on the TV. I can only assume it was on cable or something. Once again, it was New Years Eve so I ain't accountable for nothing. :)

Well yeah, that's my 2nd cousin once removed. Our "look" breeds true. What, have you got a thing against hybrids?

Bit of music trivia: Oingo Boingo once wrote a jingle for Budweiser. I know this, because i have copies of both the short and long versions of the song. Yes, i'm that big of a Boingo nerd.

I have to keep my post frequency at less than once a year, but I did have to log in to say how stoked I am to be included in the anthology. But if that's the actual order of stories, I'm a bit intimidated to follow WH Pugmire. I demand that everyone go read The Eye of Argon or something after his story, before reading mine.
