That’s a friendly greeting, isn’t it?  Pleasant, homey.  Better than a long, guttural shriek and a flailing machete, lemme tell ya.  Been there.  NOT FUN.

Anyway, welcome to the online home of me, Stephen Blackmoore.  I’m an author, blogger and general pain in the ass.

My first novel, CITY OF THE LOST, a paranormal noir with zombies, demons, witches and a lot of blood and violence is out now through DAW books.  People like it. And if you click that picture over there to the right you can even read a chunk of it.  FOR FREE.

‘Cause I’m cool like that.

My second novel DEAD THINGS comes out in February 2013 and it’s available now for pre-order.  Check it out here or click that cover on the side there.

I’m also the author of the true-life crime blog L.A. NOIR, chronicling some of the darker aspects of my fair city. It’s a jacked-up old town, but I love it anyway, warts and all.

I also write short stories, articles and help edit the pulp noir magazine NEEDLE: A MAGAZINE OF NOIR, when I can get off my ass long enough to do it. You can see some of my work up top there.

Take a look around, kick the tires, poke in the cupboards. Take the gimp out for a spin. He doesn’t get out much.

And if you just can’t get enough of me, you can also find me at Goodreads and on Twitter. Be forewarned. I say fuck a lot.

I’m represented by the inestimable Allan Guthrie at Jenny Brown Associates. He’s a cool dude.
