Kleo and I got a nasty reminder about password security today. A fellow writer’s preteen daughter has a Facebook account. Yes, I know the rules say that you have to be over a certain age, and she is barely that age.
Here’s something that should have horror fans shivering in their boots. John Manning is editing an anthology titled “What Scares the Boogeyman” for Perseid Publishing!
Since John is a friend of mine, I prevailed upon him to send me some of the stories he has accepted for publication. Folks, you are in for a treat!
What Scares the Boogeyman will be published in the Autumn of 2012. Halloween may never be the same. Some of the stories John has accepted and issued contracts for are:
- The Fear of the Lord – Robert M. Price
- The Road to Afghanistan – David Conyers
- Failure to Comply – Michael H. Hanson
- The Testament of Tuff – C. Dean Andersson
I also know about some of the ones that haven’t had contracts signed yet. All I can say about those is that you will be blown away, totally and utterly blown away. I mean what can you do with Bad Mustard?

Syn·the·sis: the combining of the constituent elements of separate material or abstract entities into a single or unified entity ( opposed to analysis, ) the separating of any material or abstract entity into its constituent elements.
The problem with most evaluations of publishing is that the evaluators are looking at each item. They are not looking at the organic whole.
Copyright Wars Volume 4 has now been published. It was rather fun reading the old posts, and looking at the things that have changed, and have not changed since I originally wrote the articles.

There’s an excellent article about the Attawapiskat disaster by âpihtawikosisân, a Metis blogger titled Dealing with comments about Attawapiskat. While I can’t do justice to her article, I did want to comment on it, and she kindly gave me permission to reprint it in full to do so.
My comments are indented in italics. Note that I’ve made minor edits to the original, to correct a couple of spelling errors.
