My Monthly Aspectarian Review column now has a list of books to be reviewed through November 2012.
The columns available to read on simegen.com now include July 2012, which starts with a strange and interesting book titled, Interview With A Jewish Vampire.

REPRINTS IN PROGRESS:
Those of My Blood and its companion volume, Dreamspy, two Vampire Romance novels from St. Martin's Press in Hardcover had the collector's price escalating above $500 a copy until BenBella re-issued them in paperback. But they sold out, so now Borgo Press has picked them up and will soon provide both paper and e-book editions at much more reasonable prices.
Here are the Amazon pages for these books,
And you will also find the new editions listed on our Amazon bookstore (though the new editions will be available everywhere and in almost all e-book formats sans DRM)
And here is a comment from a reader who accidentally found the Vampire anthology Vampire's Dilemma on Amazon.
"I saw the book "Vampire's Dilemma" on Amazon.com and because it had your
name on it I had to have it. I first stumbled upon the Sime-Gen books
at the library near my work, then lost them for a long time, and started
gathering them (and Those of My Blood, etc.) again. I really enjoy
reading them. I also recently (2006 I think) discovered fanfiction and
it gave me a whole new outlook on life beyond just voraciously reading.
I'm not saying I was nearly as good as some of the fanfiction writers,
but good enough that people read what I wrote. What a feeling! Some of
the other fanfiction writers were better than
the ones out there in the bookstores, in my opinion. I still read them
faithfully. It kills me that they're so slow with their updates! I
may not be as good, but I am consistent! I started out with anime
fanfiction, but eventually graduated & now post on fictionpress. I
don't mean to go on and on, because except for posting, I've never
really "joined" anything on any of the sites. I was just so pleasantly
surprised when I read the authors' notes in "Vampire's Dilemma" that
they did the same things in pretty much the same ways as I did--and went
on from there! There are so many good stories (and a lot of not so
good ones, but even those can draw you in--if the story's captivating
enough, you can overlook the bad writing!) So I just wanted to share
that I think it's wonderful that you recognize fanfiction writing and
on-line writing in general. Looking forward to more! Eve"
