Hey, my friend's a writer!:
One of my good friends is Nate Southard, author of such graphic novels as Drive (driving, shooting, corrupt cops and mullets) and A Trip to Rundberg (like Dawn of the Dead, but with more rednecks). He also writes prose, and he's just gotten his work published in an anthology.
His short story "Rain Against My Window" is now appearing in the horror and fantasy anthology Gods and Monsters. Nate says "It's my first anthology appearance, and I'm pretty damn proud of it."
So if anybody wants to check it out, you can can go HERE
and order one.
