Spring is finally here, and I will be involved in the following upcoming April events: Steel City Con, a comic book convention, and Tekko 2015, an anime conference. More details on those are here:
Silk Screen’s Asian Film Festival is usually around this time of year, but it has been bumped to July 10th through the 19th for the first time in its ten year history. More details will be forthcoming on that when it gets closer.
I prepared a print edition of my old novella, The Weary City, which is now available on Amazon. You can also click on my book tab for the direct link.
I’m nearly finished with the first draft of my new novel that will probably come out in 2016, The Haunting at Ice Pine Peak. This is a horror-fantasy novel that I consider a cross between 60’s TV show “Dark Shadows” and Chinese classic Dream of Red Mansions. I don’t do a lot of creative writing any more, but I always wanted to write a more classical style of horror novel.
Finally, I also have decided to start a new series that will pop up between native language books called “The Literati Corner,” which will cover odds and ends that I don’t want to cover the rest of the year or that don’t fit into neat categories. It will include things like plays, English language translations, traditional literature, serialized novels, and whatever else comes up. My inaugural post for that column will start next week before we begin our new book series.
That’s all for now, so enjoy the warmer weather!
