Did I scare ya? (Just say yes. My ego is fragile.)

So. I had the super-creepy delight of contributing a tiny-terror of a tale to this awesome anthology. It's called HALF-MINUTE HORRORS and it has a truly stellar line-up of authors contributing all these deliciously spine-tingly, skin-crawly micro-stories all designed to freak you right out in 30 seconds or less! Authors like Lemony Snicket and Neil Gaiman and RL Stine and James Patterson and Margaret Atwood and and and... me! Cool huh? What's even cooler is that proceeds from the sale go to First Book, a nonprofit organization that puts new books in the hands of children from low-income families. Super super cool.

Check it out!

Even cooler still, if you go to the HALF-MINUTE HORRORS website, you can get all sorts of info, sneak previews, and -- here's the really fun part -- upload your very own scary tales!

And -- if you happen to be in Toronto during that scariest time of the year, you can come out and meet me and a bunch of other cool H-M HORROR authors on Saturday October 31, 2009, 2-4PM at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto (1214 Queen Street West) for the HALLOWEEN DAY FAMILY CABARET Presented by World Literacy Canada

So if you live in Toronto, put on a costume and come to the event. And forward this invitation along -- especially to those with kids 8 and up.

Reserve your spot at

Scare ya there! BOO!!!

Well, it just so happens that my darling wife and I will be in Toronto at that time. How 'bout that? ;-)

Guess I should reserve a couple of spots for Lynn and myself.

You're welcome, RK!

And - Doug! Can't wait to see you and Lynn.

Hi there was just on your website and noticed that there is a repeated typo on the front page. The word is spelled THROUGH - you have Thorough - that's a totally different word with totally different meaning. Looks like your web designer messed up.

No - the web designer didn't "mess up." 'Thorough' is an archaic spelling of 'through' which appears in early versions of "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

Completely appropriate.
