What am I reading and listening to in January 2022?

Comics:

Tales From the Cryptic Closet: See it in Terrifying 3D!
Guerrilla Publishing

This is the third issue in the Horror anthology series. A great collaborative effort!
I am looking forward to more stuff from Guerrilla Publishing. Full disclosure: I backed this project on Kickstarter, and even got my Face on the back cover. Still a good read! Go get it!

Non-Fiction:

There’s a Revolution Outside, My Love

Edited by Tracy K. Smith and John Freeman
LETTERS FROM A CRISIS

A wonderful anthology that I’ve been digesting slowly over the past couple weeks; best summed up in the book’s description:

“Galvanizing and lyrical, this is a deeply profound anthology of writing filled with
pain and beauty, warmth and intimacy. A remarkable feat of empathy, There’s a
Revolution Outside, My Love offers solace in a time of swirling protest, change,
and violence-reminding us of the human scale of the upheaval, and providing
hope for a kinder future.”

Add this on to your to read pile!

Fiction:

The Stand: Stephen King

I read or listen to this masterpiece of fiction yearly. Reading and thinking about the way this story is constructed (pacing, tone, dialogue, plotting) has been helpful to my own writing.
Check it out!


Music:

I have been really digging this new soulful alternative country mash up.
Go add Amythyst Kiah’s Wary Strange to your playlist!


Okay, that’s where I’m at. I’ll try to update y’all every month on books, comics, and music that I’ve been digging! I’ll try to add some indie author reads!
