Best American Erotica 2007

I just found out The Best American Erotica 2007 not only has a sexy-hot cover (though I would prefer something black and lacy to that granny bra she's wearing) but is also available for preorder from Amazon. It contains my story "Comeback", which originally appeared in Fishnet, but more importantly it also has one of Octavia Butler's last published stories.

Where Am I Gonna Put All These Dang Videos?

Back in August, I wrote about how a local photographer doing a project on people who live and work in my neighborhood came to take photos of me at the video store. Now it's finally up on his website for all to see.

Unfortunately, there's no direct link to my picture, so what you need to do is click on the link above, then click on Portfolios/Portraits in the upper right hand corner of his site. That'll take you to a new page where, on the righthand side, you need to scroll down to picture #9.

That's me standing in front of the TV section holding a teetering pile of German movies. Find the hidden symbolism!

Actually, I think the lighting scheme makes it look like the mothership has come to take me away, but I'll be damned if I'm going on an interstellar journey without my videos.

There's a funnier picture he took where I look angry -- like, "Where am I gonna put all these dang videos?" -- but I guess he decided to go in a different direction for the website.
