Lost Creatures Fun Facts (Part III)

Continuing with my series of Fun Facts about Lost Creatures, here are a couple of facts about two of the stories in the collection that center around giant monsters.



The concept for “Scattered Showers with a Chance of Daikaiju,” the opening story in Lost Creatures, came to me while watching the movie War of the Gargantuas back in 1990. I thought: if Japan is always being attacked by giant monsters, would meteorologists in Japan forecast daikaiju attacks along with the weather?


Another of my “giant monster” themed stories that appears in Lost Creatures is “The Curse of the Amazing Colossal Thing From Outer Space,” which originally appeared in the anthology Drive-In Creature Feature.

Scattered Showers CoverIt’s the final round of the Great Kindle Giveaway!

This time I’m giving away eBook copies of my new short story “Scattered Showers with a Chance of Daikaiju,” which officially releases on Monday, August 29.

Like I did with my other two short stories, the giveaway is being hosted on both my Facebook author page and on my Twitter account, so if you’d like to play for a chance to win, head on over and join the fun by liking, sharing, or re-tweeting my contest posts.

If you’re on Facebook, I’ll also be creating an event page for the release of “Scattered Showers,” where I’ll share additional information about the story, answer questions, and post a video reading of the first couple of pages. So I invite you to join me for that, as well.

(And remember: you don’t need to own a Kindle to win. Just a device on to which you can download Kindle software.)

Thanks! And good luck!
