Hey there devotees of the Emu, it’s time to launch another sterling debut book into the world – it’s Peter Salomon‘s creeptastic, Frankenstein-inspired, downtown-thrillville horror novel HENRY FRANKS! Henry, world, world, Henry. I got my first taste of Peter’s take on tampering with the laws of nature at the 2012 American Library Association conference, where HENRY FRANKS was prominently featured at the Flux booth, where I also heard a slew of enthusiastic talk about Peter and his book.
Among the book launchish delights ahead are interviews with Brian Farrey-Latz (a.k.a. Peter’s editor at Flux), Lisa Novak (a.k.a. the HENRY FRANKS cover artist), and Ammi-Joan Paquette (a.k.a. Peter’s agent, my agent, and the best agent in the world except for Erin Murphy and Trish Lawrence who are tied with Joan), and a post about Frankensteinish food. However, we’ve chosen to kick off the week’s festivities with the silliest and least informative portion, a new video clip featuring Zombie Buddy and Santa Duck. Err, sorry?
