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.

EVERYTHING IS FINE NOW

In this new collection award-winning horror author Steve Rasnic Tem showcases a variety of ghosts and other creatures aiming to keep you up all night with the lights on. Read about the two best friends chased by a strangely familiar figure. Or the teenager who woke up one morning with fur sprouting from every nook and cranny on his body. Or the fellow from a poor family who has to take care of both his little sister and his crazy mom whose magical powers only make things worse. Or an old man who finally tells his grandson the terrible thing that makes their crops grow. Or the mechanic who keeps his cars running on oil, gasoline, blood, and broken bones. The stories in Everything Is Fine Now range from subtle supernatural tales to the legends you might hear sitting by a campfire. For adults, teenagers, and mature middle-grade readers.

Order from Omnium Gatherum.

Order from Amazon.
