After much ado, follow this link. There will be much more news next Wednesday (the 9th of October), but I think the discerning reader of my work can gather quite a lot from this Dark Horse teaser. And, though I dislike speaking of the tips of icebergs, well...such things are. I hope you're as excited by this as I've spent the last year being (as yes, I've been sitting on this secret, in one form or another since Oregon and my GoH stint at the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival, when the mega-cool editor Rachel Edidin of DH asked for a meeting with me. So, make of all this what you will.

Props of [livejournal.com profile] corucia for guessing halfway right, and to [livejournal.com profile] chris_walsh for making the most utterly fucking absurd guess: "I'm hoping the news is that science (Science!) has figured out how to download Harlan Ellison's mind into yours for safe keeping."

And now...other things, but comment, kittens, as I wish to revel in your excitement (and further speculations).

Today, between a zillion other distractions, Spooky and I are making the final edits to Blood Oranges before it goes to my agent and editor. Just piddly stuff, really. Mostly continuity.

Here in November, in this House of Leaves we pray.

Yesterday, I finished writing the new story for Sirenia Digest #71, "Latitude 41°21'45.89"N, Longitude 71°29'0.62"W," which required of me 1,187 words. Written yesterday, I mean to say. And don't forget, really cool NEVER BEFORE RELEASED Silk archival material, available only to subscribers! Means, kittens, this is a good damn time to subscribe!

And I suppose, since I allowed Anne Rice to speak yesterday, Miss Stephenie Fucking Meyer deserves equal time, so I'll quote the article from The Atlantic Wire, for all the precious and celibate teen members of Team Edward out there (by the way, note that Miss Meyer fired the first shot in this little skirmish). Thus, I quote:

"But I can't read other people's vampires. If it's too close [to my writing], I get upset; if it's too far away, I get upset. It just makes me very neurotic." And Interview with the Vampire presumably gets her on the upset--the "too far away" kind of upset. "I've seen little pieces of Interview with a Vampire when it was on TV, but I kind of always go YUCK! I don't watch R-rated movies, so that really cuts down on a lot of the horror."

Yes, she really did say "yuck."

Last night, we played RIFT, and I got enough magma opals my fucking Ash Strider mount! Booya! And we finished Season Four of Mad Men, which would make me really sad, having to wait for Season Five, except we have the two-discs that collect Season Four of Californication incoming from Netflix tonight; I love me some Hank Moody. I think I got to sleep about 4:45 ayem. There was a dream this morning of apocalypse, but it's been forgotten (thank you, poisonous meds).

Did I mention this link?

I leave you with another beautiful photograph from The Drowning Girl shoot, courtesy [livejournal.com profile] kylecassidy:

So...does this mean Ann-Margret's not coming?

In all seriousness, brava. Wednesdays have become that much more exciting.

HOLY CATS, THAT TEASER IS AWESOME.

Please excuse my out-of-character caps.

For a hot minute there, I thought you were going to tell us you were writing the upcoming Serenity comic and I would have ran around my house going, "This is soooooo cool!!" And then tweeting Nathan Fillion like a fool.

Oh, what exciting news! Congratulations!

"I'm hoping the news is that science (Science!) has figured out how to download Harlan Ellison's mind into yours for safe keeping."

What a brilliant, yet terrifying idea.

Is that Dancy Flammarion? Consider me vibrating with excitement.

I love the teaser art. Not sure what it could be, but you plus Dark Horse should be very interesting.

Then it dawns on me about a certain book that starts with ALA, and small clue is gained.

I vote for Dancy! *joy*

A Dancy Flammarion mini-series (or series)? AMAZING news. Cannot wait until next week for the total reveal (and so incredibly thankful I had delved back into the comic collection for the first time in decades and now coincidentally have empty bags and backing boards just waiting for some Alabaster!).

I am very excited by way of the teaser, and am very happy to witness (and enjoy, in time) your return to the medium! And that photo of Sara is so gorgeous and perfectly composed, love the textures and lighting contrasts.

I love the teaser! I'm even more excited for the whole scoop next week now.

As for S.F.M., at least she can be honest with herself about her neurosis.

I'm also very excited to see that book trailer. The stills I've seen have all been breathtaking.

Welp, time to squat the "Dancy Flammarion" name on CoX.

If this is indeed my main girl Dancy Flammarion I'll burst into tears of joy. Could that be Dancy's exterminating angel?!? Dark Horse seems like a great fit for CRK & Dancy if so! WOW!!!!! To celebrate the possibility I just re-read "Waycross" for the 100th time (seriously) & each time I catch a whiff of something new--that story has strata!

Yuck.

So I got the book wrong.... I'm even happier that it's Dancy, however! Probably my favorite character from your work. Really looking forward to seeing this! Now I can dream about an eventual SubPress compilation a la the Locke & Key books...

'Two Worlds and In Between' arrived today (#16/600) and looks gorgeous. It'll displace Dan Simmons' The Terror as my current reading material (didn't finish up the Simmons book yet as my AllHallowsRead).

Congrats!

Well, unless you write more than one albino monster-slayer with a knife . . .

Congratulations. This looks very, very shiny indeed.

The photo is lovely. I'm very curious to find out what, exactly, is going on with Dark Horse. Much anticipation for next Wednesday. Assuming at the very least I'll have another excuse to "blow money" on comics.

Wow!Wow!Wow! This is fantastic. I'm so happy for your new venture, I hope the monetary rewards are equally satisfying.

Last year when you mentioned "doing some work for Dark Horse" my imagination was stirred and I kept checking their website every month for some kind of news. But this is just incredible.

Of course a reprint edition of Alabaster, may be something to consider with the increased attention.

You Sly Dog!

You teased us about this back on April Fool's day when you described an Alabaster movie. Tossed it out there in a different form!

The artwork looks great. Can't wait to see Dancy's DH debut.

Congrats!

Would it be rude to say that I doubt Stephanie Meyers reads pretty much anything? A friend of mine forced a copy of "Twilight" on me and two paragraphs in, I was cringing too much to continue.

And, well, it's obvious that she doesn't watch R-rated movies. The words in them might be too big for her. Wait, that was rude again, wasn't it?

Yuck!

Please forgive me, I get very snarky where the whole "Twilight" thing is involved.

However, I am very excited about that image. Would that be Dancy then? Who did the artwork? It's beautiful!

Congratulations! And kudos on having the willpower to keep quiet about this for so long. Must have been the most delicious torment.

I hope you realize, I'm going to sell a hell of a lot of issues of that comic at "the Ogre". And it will be pure joy doing so.
