I Confess! I Killed Miss Grundy!

Looks as though the events in Life With Archie: The Married Life #6 (on sale December 29) have struck a chord. I'll admit, when I wrote the issue I got a bit choked up, so I'm not surprised at the response, from the New York Times to the fan press.

I'd like to remind everyone that way back in the mid-1970s, I also offed Aquababy in Aquaman, and ten years later I did the same to Vigilante (the Aquaman story is scheduled to be reprinted in the Death of the Prince trade paperback next summer). Someone stop me before I kill again!

In My Shorts!

My second eBook from Buffalo Avenue Books has just gone online at and is available for download! It's called In My Shorts: Hitler's Bellhop and Other Short Stories, and looks something like this...

eBook Price: $8.99 USD. 40,570 words. Fiction by Paul Kupperberg, published by Buffalo Avenue Books at on December 14, 2010. 

Included are three previously published short stories, "Reflected Glory," (from the anthology Superheroes), "Food For the Beast" (from Fear Itself), and "Man Bites Dog" (from Vampires: Dracula and the Undead Legions), as well as three never-before-published pieces:

"Hitler's Bellhop," a story told by a film magazine essay and the lost fragments of a Jerry Lewis screenplay that never was but, really, could have been;

"A Stone for the Grave of Mr. Aronson," a mood piece about a man's last hour of life, set in a lonely graveyard;

"The Zombie King," a piece of flash fiction that takes a Roger Cormanish look at the New Testament.

The cover is courtesy of Kansas City's own Rick Stasi, my pal and graphic artist extraordinaire.

You Never Call, You Never Visit!

Over on my new Buffalo Avenue Books site, I've kind of started following the whole struggle between Traditional Brick and Mortar Publishing and the rapidly evolving world of eBooks. Today, Google jumped into the market with both feet...looking to land right on Amazon's throat.

And while you're there, I hope you'll buy a copy of Two Tales of Atlantis, two related short stories by yours truly and BAB's first offering. Promo code XC37T gets you 20% off the $3.99 price.
