Grabbing some wifi at Mammoth Hot Springs, waiting out a torrential downpour. Just scored fishing licenses. Thought I’d upload this shot from near the west entrance.
When I dumped my Tumblr account, one of the other blogs I was following there that I made certain to add to my Google reader was from a guy from Wyoming named KC O’Connor. I love the stuff he posts and the adventures he reports on. This timelapse video from Lake Tahoe that I stole from him is a perfect example why. Expand this thing to full screen (by clicking the little icon next to where it says HD that has arrows jutting out to each corner) and prepare to be blown away. I’ve been to Tahoe a couple times; this makes me want to go back, pronto.
I’m not going to be around tomorrow, and this goes on sale then, so I’m posting this today:
This is a Kindle-first, print-later anthology that was the most fun I’ve had writing in ages, the third in a series of which the first two are still available. It’s a throwback to the old Destroyer and Penetrator and Mack Bolan The Executioner novels. My story is called, “Blood and Sweetgrass In: This Rez is Mine!” Think of it as a cross between the 70s movie classic Billy Jack and the ’09 movie classic Black Dynamite.
From the official Blood & Tacos website, here’s the lowdown on what it’s all about:
There was a time when paperback racks were full of men’s adventure series. Next to the Louis L’Amours, one could find the adventures of The Executioner, the Destroyer, the Death Merchant, and many more action heroes that were hell-bent on bringing America back from the brink. That time was the 1970s & ’80s. A bygone era filled with wide-eyed innocence and mustaches.
Those stories are back! The new quarterly magazine Blood & Tacos is bringing back the action, the fun, and the adventure. Also, the mustaches.
In each issue of Blood & Tacos, some of today’s hottest crime writers will choose an era and create a new pulp hero and deliver a brand-new adventure. Each issue will include 5-6 stories featuring action-packed mayhem written in the style of that bygone era. The stories might not always be politically correct, but whether satire or homage, they will deliver on every page. Fast and fun, action and adventure, Blood & Tacos.
If the stories weren’t enough, Blood & Tacos will also feature fine pulpy art, reviews of some of the fine (and not so fine) novels from the same period, and maybe even a recipe or two.
Each quarterly issue of Blood & Tacos will be available for you here on the web for the low price of absolutely FREE. Or if you prefer, it will also be made available through Amazon via Kindle, and other fine ebook retailers in the ePub format, for the modest price of $0.99.
So prepare yourself for the coming of Blood & Tacos. And remember, if it’s too cheesy, it’s a quesadilla.
I’ll be back next week with a link to get the thing, but feel free to seek it out on your own in the meantime. This is one of those rare occasions where I heard about a publication being launched and I thought to myself, “I got to get involved with this thing. . . . ”
