Coach's Midnight Diner appeals to ...

Goths? Apparently so. One of the things Coach Culbertson (the editor and publisher, and also the sysadmin for the Relief Writer's Network and Relief Journal) told us recently was that he's been invited to sign copies of the Diner at Chicago's Gothicfest in October. And now he's gotten a review of the Diner from one Nickolaus Pacione, who edits horror and goth oriented anthologies himself. He's enthusiastic about it, to say the least. He loves the edginess of it even with the God stuff. I quote:
They have a strong faith in God but they are total badasses about it. Christian or Non-Christian -- you'll enjoy this if you like Speculative Fiction.
I've never been described that way before, but I'm OK with it. I think.

Lest I scare you away with all this goth-talk, I think any fans of speculative fiction will find something to like in the Diner. And it sounds like it'll get reviews from some more traditional kinds of places, like Infuze. So don't hesitate to order now.

I tried to Google that review---where is it?

It's in the Diner group on the Relief Writer's Network. I don't know where else it might be posted. Here's a link to where Coach posted it to the group:

I shelled out the cash to get the anthology now I am just waiting for the print copy to arrive. Coach did a good job on it and I am pleased to be an owner of it.

I am linking up Tabloid Purposes 3 for you guys to see what kind of stuff I publish. I listen to predominately Heavy Metal, and write Gothic Fiction. I was looking at this and thought, "Wow d-mn, I think I know would be a perfect place to get him going. I signed this event two years ago and need an anthology that could compliment the attitude and intensity of Tabloid Purposes."

I just released Tabloid Purposes IV.

Probably not, but you'll note I didn't actually link to his blog -- I just quoted the review he did, which was posted at the Relief Writer's Network. Coach's Midnight Diner has qualities that appeal to a wider audience than a lot of "traditional" Christian publishing venues -- that's a good thing, I think.

I also don't like anonymous comments much.
