Since the promo is for The Cutest Girl in Class, perhaps Irene Cara (surely in the running for that superlative) would have been more appealing than Giorgio Moroder?

Re: Snuggly Books

Well, it isn't Giorgio Moroder... His audience would be slightly different.... But I believe the girl in the second video is surely cuter than Irene Cara. Anyone who recognizes the theme to Flashdance though deserves especial props. Or should I say anyone who lasted that long in the video.

Kim Newman Cha Cha Cha:

A Tribute to Kim Newman



Judi dreamed she was waking up. Without moving, she got out of the double bed, pulled a rough towel robe over the things she was still wearing, and searched the mess on the carpeted floor for her Camels. She found most of her clothes, relatively unspoiled, mixed up with Coral's. Also three empty Dom Perignon bottles, a shredded Iris Murdoch paperback, some studded leather fripperies and a multi-coloured scattering of pills. Her head was an open wound, leaking steadily, and she had either vomited recently or would do so soon. She hauled her heavy black jacket out of the heap and patted its zippered pockets. No luck. She walked across the room, knees and ankles threatening to fail her, and became acutely aware of the sticky ache between her legs.

Sweet Jesus, did we get raped again?


-Kim Newman, Bad Dreams

Kim Newman (born 31 July 1959) is an English journalist, English film critic, and English fiction writer. His Cyclopean English oeuvre has spilled across continents in a blood-drenched amoebal tide. He has won the Bram Stoker Award, the International Horror Guild Award, and the BSFA award, and a number of other informal awards.

Now Snuggly Books is dedicating its first tribute anthology to Kim Newman, in tribute to Kim Newman.

We are looking for:

Original works of fiction which may contain and/or be inspired by: Kim Newman, vampires, Dracula, Kim Newman, underage Korean hookers, Kim Newman, the Red Baron, Dracula, Jack the Ripper, club AXXCIS in Shibuya, Kim Newman, female science fiction writers, Quatermass and the Pit (set in England), Kim Newman, Dracula Cha Cha Cha Cha, Kim Newman's Video Dungeon, a recurring feature of Newman's fiction is his fondness for reinterpreting historical figures (particularly from the entertainment industry) and other authors' characters in new settings, either realistic alternate-history or outright fantasy, Count Chocula, the Diogenes Club, Azealia Banks, anal sex with vampires, a series of novels published by Games Workshop set in the world of their Warhammer and Dark Future wargaming and role-playing games, Sherlock Holmes, waistcoats, Twilight, Ronson cigarette lighters, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Professor Moriarty, Annette Funicello, blood parasites, lava lamps, the Bram Stoker Award, Kim Newman, Swedish au pairs, Dan Ghetu, handlebar mustaches, anal sex, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, vampires, Doctor Who, Kim Newman, Billie Piper, anal sex with Billie Piper, jellied eels, Jammie Dodgers, anal sex, vampires, Aina Tanaka, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, Penguin biscuits, anal sex with Hitomi Shimatani, ski lodges, Le Castle Vania, Blacula, Kim Newman, England, wearing a vest, Fifty Shades of Grey, Pachislot Akumajō Dracula III, Kim Newman, Dracula, vampires, historical settings, mahjong, Kim Newman.

Original works of fiction, Kim Newman vignettes, decadent visions infused with diabolism, dreamy reflections on the spirit of art or the art of the spirit, hagiographies of Kim Newman. Grind the vermilion ink with pestles of polished basalt, inscribe the smouldering sigil upon the finest vellum and write about Kim Newman and/or vampires or something to do with Dracula.

If you are unable to write anything containing these themes or other Kim Newman-related themes and elements, just "send whatever" and we will attempt to revise it to include Kim Newman.

· Any length.

· Multiple submissions are OK. But no previously published works.

· Deadline: 1 December 2013

"Grind the vermillion ink with pestles of polished basalt"?
I'm looking forward to seeing people grind ink with a pestle, Justin.
It's a liquid. They are going to get a bit splashed.

This line was sourced/quoted/folded-in from here:

Ex Occidente Press - Transactions of the Flesh

"Diagnose our infernal disease, assail us with exultant mysticism and the sovereignty of the cadaver, give us paradise aflame and purge us with ascetic hallucinations; we want sacred whores, the substitution of orifices for stigmata, bodies for the sacrificial slaughter or the redemption of the flesh. Grind the vermilion ink with pestles of polished basalt, inscribe the smouldering sigil upon the finest vellum."

Re: Snuggly Books

Mr. Isis, I appreciate your quirkiness, originality and sense of humour. The only problem is, I never quite know what is serious with you and what is tongue in cheek. *sigh*

Brilliant spoof! Thank all the gods that someone else is helping to keep the venerable tradition of satire alive. I was beginning to wonder if it was just me...
