Burning Bulb Publishing launches new comic book line starting with THE TAILSMAN!

INTRODUCING

BURNING BULB COMICS

Burning Bulb Comics

 

THE TAILSMAN

Episode No. 1: The Sioux City Shithouse Monster

THE TAILSMAN was a short story written by GARY LEE VINCENT that originally appeared in the Bizarro-western anthology WESTWARD HOES.  Adapted for comic by horror/bizarro writer RICH BOTTLES JR. (author of Lumberjacked, Hellhole West Virginia, & The Manacled) and illustrated by STUART J. BROWN (creator of the Annyseed vampire comic), THE TAILSMAN follows the adventures of Sly Franko as he makes his way across the old west.

The Tailsman – Episode No. 1: The Sioux City Shithouse Monster

He’s hot on the trail, looking for some tail…

Sly Franko was a man of the West, a forger of the wild frontier. Like the Country Western song that would be written years after he died, the words, “Faster horses, younger women, and more money,” seemed to be the anthem of this horn dog cowboy.

Franko would ride into town on a blazing saddle, find the closest saloon to wet the whistle, belly up to a good card game, and find him a hot-loving hussy to get his cowpoke on with.He would never stay in any one town too long, always mindful not to wear out his welcome and also mindful to glance over his shoulder from time to time just in case his ‘lady of the night’ from the night before happened to be married. The last thing Sly Franko needed was an angry husband hot on the trail of “The Tailsman.”

Yes, Franko quickly earned the nickname of The Tailsman and it would be an accurate statement to say he always seemed to find some tail on the trail wherever he would roam.

In Episode No. 1, Franko finds himself in the rolling hills of western Iowa where a visit to bathroom leads to terror and death. Can Sly and his buddies save the town and still get back to the Parlor of Pleasure in time for a game of cards and some gentlemanly fun? For mature readers only.

DEALEY PLAZA Receives Five Star Review From Filmmaker Russ Streiner

Russ Streiner – Russ is an American film producer and actor. He is the brother of actor/producer Gary Streiner.

★★★★★ 5.0 out of 5 stars
In Dealey Plaza, John Russo deals with horror- only this time around he takes his horrifying cues from real news headlines., April 20, 2014, By Russ Streiner

 

This review is from: Dealey Plaza (Paperback)

With a sharp mid-career adjustment, John A. Russo shifted his storytelling focus from flesh-eating ghouls and zombies, to a totally different kind of horror- the horror of violence in America. The kind of terrifying horror we Americans inflict, mostly, upon ourselves with our suspicions, hatred, extremism and general madness.

In crafting his latest novel, Dealey Plaza, Russo utilizes his observations of contemporary history to create a spreadsheet of real and fictional historical violence starting with the time-stopping assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 and spanning 40-years to the Al-Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City.

In Dealey Plaza, John Russo has used real events and media coverage of those events as the sketch pad to create fictional events that his characters have to live and die with.

The characters and details are crisp and clear and the violence, horror and terror they deal with in Russo’s fictional settings are, unfortunately, reinforced by news headlines to this very day.

In Dealey Plaza, Russo holds up a mirror to contemporary society that we don’t really like to look into. Dealey Plaza reflects what is regrettably within striking distance of all of us, at any place, at any time. As a filmmaker myself, Dealey Plaza could be made into a stunning benchmark film.

– Russ Streiner

Big Trouble In Little Ass by Wol-vriey now an eBook!

Big Trouble In Little Ass: A Novella by Wol-vriey

From Bizarro master storyteller Wol-vriey comes a truly weird western tale that will leave you awe-struck and on the edge of your seat…

In the town named Little Ass, tight-assed prostitute Rosa overhears a gunslinger’s plans to assassinate rancher Edison Bennett. Once the badass Bennett learns of the plot, he ensures there’ll be hell to pay for any attempt on his life!

Yes, it’s going to take all of gunslinger Jude’s shooting prowess, his eclectic collection of strange firearms, a trusty horse that requires an owners’ manual, and the help of the lovely and invigorating Nell (who’s EXTREMELY odd when the going gets weird), to survive the Bizarro hell that Edison Bennett unleashes in order to hold onto the land that he’d stolen from Madam Zizi.

An excerpt from the book:
Edison returned with his drink. He and Valhalla studied Jude’s gun.
“It’s made of bone, Edison,” Valhalla said. “Smells like fish bone.”
Edison raised a startled eyebrow. He finished his whiskey, then broke the weapon open to check its ammo.
There were three shells in the cylinder, and no spent casings. Edison thought the three empty chambers odd. Even odder, the ends of the unfired shells looked like frayed meat.
He shook the bullets out into his hand.
Frowning, he held one up so Valhalla and Ike could see it. Lamplight glinted off the bullet’s fingernail. “What sort of a weapon fires severed human fingers?” he asked.

New release from Wol-vriey: BOSTON POSH

Boston Posh by Wol-vrieyBoston Posh: A Bud Malone Thriller!

Why are the white robots trying to kill Malone?

In 2028 AD, the USA is a nation ravaged by hungry dragons and dinosaurs.

In Boston, Massachusetts, private eye Bud Malone is hired to rescue a kidnapped heiress. But nothing is as it seems.

Malone works to unravel a tangled web involving Boston Chinatown, a 200-year-old woman with a 9-year-old body, white humanoid robots, a human-liver-eating psychopath, a golem, a porcelain dragon, and a snake goddess with a crush on him.

There’s also a woman obsessed with chicken sex.

Then Malone meets Posh Lane, a gorgeous call girl who’s desperate to quit her pimp. Romantic sparks ignite between Posh and Malone, but Posh’s past suddenly catches up with her in a BIG way.

To save Posh, Malone agrees to run a quest for Earth’s new rulers, the Forks. The quest: recover ex US president Jefferson Lincoln’s liver for them.

Malone has no idea that agreeing to the Fork’s odd request will send him on the weirdest trip he’s ever been on in his life.

Boston Posh. A total mindf*ck. Reality like you’ve never dared imagine it!


Fall 2013 Newsletter

hand drawing light bulb with crumpled paperWelcome to the Fall 2013
Burning Bulb Publishing Newsletter

With the changing of the time and the falling of the leaves, I realize it has been a while since I published a piece to keep everyone in the loop with the happenings at ‘The Bulb’.

For those of you who weren’t aware, I launched a BRAND NEW version of my official personal website (http://www.garyleevincent.com) on October 15th and using this new platform, folks can enjoy content on both traditional browsers and mobile devices alike.

Also, we have four major projects currently in the hopper and I am very excited to tell you about them…

Boston PoshBoston Posh

First off, we have a new story coming out from one of my favorite authors of all time – Wol-vriey.  Cleverly titled Boston Posh, we will go into the bizarro underworld of a post apocalyptic Boston, where Detective Bud Malone must uncover a mystery of a missing heiress.  You may recall Wol-vriey from one of his other titles – Vegan Zombie Apocalypse  – which was published by Burning Bulb back in the Spring.  He is also the author of Meat Suitcase and contributor to The Big Book of Bizarro and Westward Hoes. 

Boston Posh is an incredible read and one of the few books that I read and re-read about three time in a row.  When this one comes out, you definitely want to check it out.  It is a total mind trip done up in a way that only Wol-vriey can do.

For a closer look, be sure to check out our Boston Posh teaser, by clicking here.

Darkened SoulsDarkened Hills IV – Darkened Souls

Most people familiar with the Darkened series believe everything to be nicely wrapped up and delivered with a bow on top at the end of Book III (Darkened Waters), hence giving a conclusion to The Darkened Trilogy. But that is not quite the case.

Darkened Souls represents a reimagineering of the gothic vampire saga with new characters and settings. Picking up where Book III left off, the fourth book in the series will kick off what I affectionatly call The Mother of Darkness trilogy and I hope to take this new story arc to new heights (or lows depending on you point of view).

 

 

Be sure to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in the DARKENED series by visiting www.DarkenedHills.com.

The Tailsman Comic Book

Sly Franko - a.k.a. "The Tailsman"For fans of the Burning Bulb Bizarro anthology, Westward Hoes (and graphic arts in general), I am very pleased to say that work is progressing nicely in our Tailsman comic book.  For those who don’t know, I have teamed up with Bizarro horror author Rich Bottles Jr. and a famous comic illustrator to launch our first ever comic book from Burning Bulb Publishing.

Presently, we have the first five panels done and are shooting for a 24-page book for our Episode 1 special edition.  Stay tuned, as I will post samples as we finalize them.

St. Albans Fire

A few weeks ago, Rich and I were in Charleston, WV, for a Shockacon event.  While there, we visited the nearby town of St. Albans and its neighborhood of “Jefferson.”  For those of you unfamiliar with Jefferson, let me educate you by sharing the following YouTube official news report…

http://youtu.be/xk_2y3fYuhc

Anyway, the whole experience gave me the inspiration to create a humorous erotica tale based in Jefferson and the initial plot has already been worked up.  I’ll be going full-bore on this one once Darkened Souls is complete and hope to twist Rich’s arm in the meantime to sell him on the idea of collaborating with me,  as his humor for the perverse is second to none.

That’s all I have for today.  Have a wonderful fall season and as the temperature drops, keep your stick on the ice!
Gary Lee Vincent
