K. A. Opperman and The Crimson Tome

So...I'm new to this blogging thing. But since I'm a writer, and since I've got a book coming out real soon, I figured I'd better get on with this business--the ever so important musings, the shameless advertisements, the aimless rants--and maybe even a little entertainment along the way!

I'm feeling a little bit lazy, so--why don't I just let my recent author bio do the rest of the talking??

"K. A. Opperman is a writer of Weird and horrific formal poetry from southern California, USA. His influences are many, but Clark Ashton Smith and H. P. Lovecraft are at the top of the long and seedy list. Think exotic, erotic, psychotic, and necrotic—often at the same time.

His debut verse collection, The Crimson Tome, will appear from the famed Hippocampus Press a little later this year—nearly 200 pages of madness wrought in rhyme. Aside from that, he has appeared in the journal Spectral Realms, will appear in several anthologies from Horrified Press, and will appear in The Weird Fiction Review #6."

So there ya have it, folks--I'm a blogger now!
