    Coming Soon: “The Shattering”

    With Aberrations going strong, the guys at Screaming Banshee Press don’t rest on their Australian laurels and the next book is already coming: after zombies and natural horrors, Contact! promises (and no doubt will deliver) some good old action-packed, high-adrenaline military horror (never enough of that). And I’m happy to be in the line-up again, with a new SF-horror tale — sitting right on the mark between short story and novelette — I’m particularly fond of: The Shattering.

    Find me at The Last Bookstore, Los Angeles

    You can now find some of my stuff at The Last Bookstore, in Los Angeles, CA — “the biggest (and loveliest) new and secondhand bookshop in California” according to The Guardian — where a nice spot has been set for Independent Legions books, including my co-edited anthology Monsters of Any Kind, my English translation of Alessandro Manzetti’s novel Naraka, and The Beauty of Death 2 — where you can find my story “The Gorge of Children” (among many masters of modern horror). And lots of other good horror books, of course.

    Talking about synchronicity. Two brand new, wonderful incarnations came out almost simultaneously of the first two books I worked on as a translator: the Italian editions for Brian Keene’s The Conqueror Worms (I vermi conquistatori, co-translated with Luigi Musolino, published this time by Independent Legions — after Edizioni XII and Urania Mondadori); and Rocky Wood’s Stephen King. Uncollected Unpublished (Stephen King. Le opere segrete del re, deluxe edition for Kipple Officina Libraria).
