    Ethical Aspects of Animal Husbandry
    by Craig Terlson

    A collection of short stories where the humour runs dark and the slipstream bubbles up.

     

    ...imagine if Raymond Carver called up George Saunders and Joe Lansdale, and they all went drinking with Neil Gaiman.

    “… it's clear that Terlson is way ahead of the curve in terms of crafting an engaging premise that reaches for elevated territory and reinvents enduring archetypes of action and suspense.”  J. Schoenfelder


    "Sometimes brutal, often demanding and always complex, this novel will repay the reader who likes their assumptions challenged and is happy to walk away from a book with minor questions unanswered but the big ones definitely dealt with! It’s likely to satisfy those who enjoy Hammet and/or Philip K Dick and who like their fiction very noir indeed."   Kay Sexton

     

    "I love a novel that you can't put down, and this is one of them."  L. Cihlar

Time to get at it...

Okay, I've been a slacker, it's true. And this post may be met with cynicism. As in... oh yeah, you're going to blog more, like you always say.

I mean, damn, even your daughter is even more regular at this!

See:  Anthems of a 20Something - no really do, it's a damn fine blog.

But as mentioned, big news and such is afoot. I do in fact have a novel coming out next year. And my publisher will be launching me on their site on Monday, Nov. 14. So I want to do my part, and get back to blogging. I do enjoy writing the blog, though my digressive brain (regressive?) tends to take trips down paths of non-writing. Even the clunkiness of that sentence screams at me— you're outta practice boy!

So here is where you come in. 

What would you like to see from me in the next weeks and months? I can give more background on some LSD folks (as seen in posts below), but I am not sure it will catch interest. More likely some stories of my dancing with the publishing industry... but even moreover, talking about the craft itself. I am an absolute pig for interviews on craft and storytelling. Pig? Hmm, devourer? Obsessive eater?

I digress. Often. You know what I mean.

I'd love to talk shop, like where I get my ideas (drugstore down the street), what I read (everything), what I eat (same), and the finer points of the narrative distance between different forms of Third-Person POV (say wha?)

But let me know, I am Craig, I am your blogger. The regular posting begins now. No really, don't look at me like that.

And as I started, I end with one of my biggest heroes talking shop:
In Defense of Darkness
