Beneath the Surface of Things, a collection of dark short fiction by my friend and editing colleague Kevin Wallis, is available in softcover now at Amazon.com. There is also a Kindle edition for you digitalphiles. My copy is on the way and reviews have been unanimous: Kevin Wallis writes boundless, unnerving dark fiction as good as any name-brand author, if not better. Order your copy today. Get two and send one as a gift.

Aurora Wolf – A Literary Journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy is what we at Liquid Imaginaton fondly consider to be one of our sister publications. It is the brainchild of Michael C.

Check’em out.

Jaime Hernandez is one of my favortie writer/artists in the entire known universe. His portion of the Love and Rockets graphic novels are unsurpased in long form graphic storytelling. Approaching 30 years. Wow.
There’s a pretty thorough overview/review of the entire The Walking Dead series over at Newsarama. “The Walking Dead is a continuing story about survival.” That’s a great tagline. One that was applied, in essence, to LOST. KIRKMANARAMA: The Walking Dead MEGAREVIEW #1-78
