LATCHKEY: new reviews and Readercon

July 3rd, 2018 2 Comments

As of today, there’s only a week to go before Nicole Kornher-Stace’s novel Latchkey officially launches. Anita and Nicole and I all plan to come to Readercon in Quincy, Mass., just outside Boston, which takes place Thursday, July 12 through Sunday, July 15, not at all coincidentally the same week Latchkey goes live. For the first time ever, Anita and I will be running a Mythic Delirium Books table in the Readercon bookshop, where we’ll have oodles of copies of

LATCHKEY gets starred review from KIRKUS + many more blurbs

June 11th, 2018 No Comments

Launch day for Latchkey by Nicole Kornher-Stace is just a month away now, and because I’ve been occupied with behind-the-scenes preparation, I’ve not blogged here about on-the-stage things have happened this past month. Such as: Latchkey got a starred review from Kirkus Reviews! Near-future science-fiction crimes bleed into dystopian horror centuries later in a wildly imaginative genre-hybrid sequel to Archivist Wasp (2015) . . . Less mythic in tone and more conventional in structure than the first, this title nonetheless

First review of LATCHKEY! Plus new blurbs & a review copy giveaway

May 8th, 2018 No Comments

The official release date for Latchkey is just two months away, and the first review of the book is in, from Locus Magazine reviewer Liz Bourke, published in the May issue. It’s a lengthy, detailed review, with a lot to say, all of it positive. An excerpt: “Latchkey’s prose is elegantly self-effacing: smooth, easy to read, and full of adroit turns of phrase. Kornher-Stace has a gift for creating atmosphere, from the familial closeness of Isabel’s small community of former

CLOCKWORK PHOENIX 5 arises and flies

April 18th, 2016 No Comments

So, as I mentioned in a previous post, I’m still playing the “belated” game, which is why I’m only now getting to the official post declaring that our newest anthology, Clockwork Phoenix 5, is available everywhere — though, to be fair, numerous shouts resounded via more ephemeral social media outlets on the April 5 launch date, and the launch reading that day was a smash success. More about that anon.   First, links to all the places you can find

THE SPIDER TAPESTRIES scatters into the world, abetted by kind blurbs and reviews

March 23rd, 2016 No Comments

For reasons good and bad, I’m awfully behind in promoting my latest writing and publishing hijinx. So, belatedly but enthusiastically, more than three weeks after the fact, I’m thrilled to announce that my second short story collection, the ultra-ultraweird The Spider Tapestries: Seven Strange Stories, is loose in the world!   I had been planning on Book Day to share the full text of the wonderful blurb that World Fantasy Award winner Scott Nicolay wrote for The Spider Tapestries—except I

CLOCKWORK PHOENIX 5 gets starred review in PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

March 9th, 2016 No Comments

The first review of Clockwork Phoenix 5 has appeared, and we’re proud to report that it’s a coveted starred review from Publishers Weekly! We could not have hoped for better.   Allen’s strange and lovely fifth genre-melding fantasy anthology selects 20 new short stories of unusual variety, texture, compassion, and perception. . . . The common denominator seems to be love in many unusual incarnations: two fathers’ devotion to their lost children in Barbara Krasnoff’s ghost story “Sabbath Wine,” a

PUNKTOWN author Jeffrey Thomas on THE SPIDER TAPESTRIES

February 8th, 2016 No Comments

This post first appeared at Descent into Light.   I’m hugely honored that Jeffrey Thomas, author of the cult classic genre mashup Punktown, took time away from his busy writing schedule to craft a blurb for my forthcoming collection The Spider Tapestries.   And I’m doubly honored by what he had to say:   “We think of science fiction, fantasy, and horror as genres of the imagination, but someone like Mike Allen shows us how lacking in daring and vision

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY reviews THE SPIDER TAPESTRIES

February 1st, 2016 No Comments

This past week, Publishers Weekly reviewed my new short story collection, The Spider Tapestries, and I feel like one lucky author, because whoever wrote the review seems to have understood my super-strange little book on every level.   The gist of the review:   “Elegant language and surrealistic themes defy genre and moral expectations in the weird and transgressive stories found in this collection . . . Allen’s pairing of individualistic suffering and cosmic hugeness evokes a lyrical friction between
