David Foster Wallace; The Pale King
That sometime human beings have to just sit in once place and, like, hurt. That you will become way less concerned with what other people think of you when you realize how seldom they do. That there is a such a thing as raw, unalloyed, agendaless kindness … That there might not be angels, but there are people who might as well be. That God - unless you’re Charlton Heston, or unhinged, or both - speaks and acts entirely through the vehicle of human beings, if there is a God. That God might regard the issue of whether you believe there’s a God or not as fairly low on his/her/its list of things s/he/it’s interested in re you.
David Foster Wallace; Infinite Jest

My next collection is coming soon. I’m hoping it channels everything I love about old pulp books that I love getting from used stores. Plus thanks to Wilum Pugmire and Bruce Durham for their back cover quotes - my pulp fiction brothers!

Looking forward to my friend, David West’s, upcoming release. If you like pulp fiction, weird stories, and horror, then check this out.

My friend Jeffrey Shanks edited this excellent volume of Zombie stories from the old pulp magazines of the 20s and 30s.

Classics with appropriate bookmarks.

This is the attitude you have to have as a writer. If you are writing merely to get published you’ll simply churn out what can be published and it will have no soul. If you write because you know you have to just to keep your passion and sanity alive, then your work will thrive.
