The Chuck Palahniuk anthology, Burnt Tongues, will be published August 2014 through Medallion Press

BT TOCWell, it’s finally happening. After many delays and roadblocks, the Chuck Palahniuk anthology has been sold to Medallion Press with the publication date set for August of 2014. Check out the full TOC on the left here. You may recognize some of the names.

This is a major breakthrough in a very long and arduous process. “How long?” you may ask. Well, my first story submission was all the way back in June of 2009. However, this idea was originally conceived years earlier by The Cult’s webmaster Dennis Widmyer, so a big thanks to him for not losing faith or his drive to see this thing become a reality. Another big shout-out goes out to Richard Thomas who sold this thing like a champ and got us this fantastic deal with Medallion.

As for the stories themselves, I’ve read most of them back when I was hitting the workshop hard. They’re good. They’re really fucking good. And they’ll be even better once Medallion’s editors have sharpened them up, so get excited. This is going to be a highlight reel of transgressive fiction from some of the best up-and-coming talent in the industry.
