THE STEVE RASNIC TEM & MELANIE TEM

COLLECTION AT TEXAS A&M

           

So what’s happening here? This month I removed all the contributor’s copies from my and Melanie’s lawyer’s bookcases; emptied the manuscripts, correspondence, contracts and notes from our filing cabinets; removed over half the awards from our trophy case, boxed it all up, and shipped it to Texas A&M’s Cushing Library where it will become The Steve Rasnic Tem and Melanie Tem Collection (over 1000 items), part of their Fantasy & Science Fiction Research Archives (along with similar collections from Michael Moorcock, Howard Waldrop, Andre Norton, Lisa Tuttle, George RR Martin, etc and our old friend Ed Bryant). I even threw in my runs of Ghosts & Scholars and All Hallows. There our archives will be available to scholars for years to come. Thanks to curator Jeremy Brett for making all this possible.

DEADFALL HOTEL AUDIOBOOK

Narration by Matt Godfrey. Cover art by John Kenn Mortensen

AVAILABLE NOW from Audible, Amazon, and iTunes: Deadfall Hotel audiobook by Steve Rasnic Tem. The Deadfall Hotel is where our nightmares go, it’s where the dead pause to rest between worlds, and it’s where Richard Carter and his daughter Serena go to rediscover life — if the things at the hotel don’t kill them first. Think of it as the vacation resort of the collective unconscious.

With the powerful prose that has earned him awards and accolades, Steve Rasnic Tem explores the roots of fear and society’s fascination with things horrific, using the many-layered metaphor of the Deadfall Hotel. Drawing inspiration from literary touchstones John Gardner and Peter Straub, Tem elegantly delves into the dark corners of the human spirit. There he finds not only our fears, but ultimately our hopes.
