Casey Criswell (Cinema Fromage) has announced a Bigfoot anthology that he’s co-editing with Louis Fowler (Damaged 2.0) and Rod Lott (Bookgasm, Flick Attack). As the title Mondo Sasquatch suggests, it’s a collection of sasquatchian short fiction, which would make it worth picking up even if it didn’t have an awesome cover by Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac) and I didn’t have a story in it.
But it does and I do. So even better!
When Fowler opened the door for submissions, here’s how he described what they were looking for:
Anyone can do a typical Bigfoot-scares-teen-campers tale…we want something different. Stories can put the creature in any time or any place or any situation, as long as it is entertaining! Think your story is too “B-movie”? Chances are we’ll like it even better. Think your “take” is too insane? We want to read it!
So, yeah. Should be a lot of fun.
I certainly had fun with mine. It’s called “Bigfoot and the Bone Face Murders” and it’s a Western steampunk murder mystery with Bigfoot as the detective. The first sentence goes, “Bigfoot came to Wolf’s Creek looking for the man who killed his bear.”
The book’s scheduled for a May release and I’ll definitely keep you updated as new details are revealed. For now, check out Cinema Fromage for the full list of authors and story titles.
Speaking of hairy creatures, new Kill All Monsters! pages are up and the Kill Team runs into a monster considerably smaller than the kind they usually fight. Too bad they aren’t in their robot suits at the time.
