Pacione’s MySpace Bulletins

Here we have more snippets from Mr. Pacione. He beams them out in bulletins to his entire 2000+ friends list.

The bell has rung and it is TKO. DING, DING this vampire isn’t a fucking pussy either and he will kick the shit out of these pussy vampires in recent years. 5’10 and 190 lbs — cruiserweight and vicious as all hell. Horror with a bad atittude in this one . . .

Mr. Puffer Fish is at it again, pumping up his height an extra 4″ and pretending to be tough.

My love of boxing shows in this one and my promotional pictures for this — I was going to step into the boxing ring.

Yeah, like John Kerry crawled around in that thing at NASA. His photo-op as he re-emerged turned into a Mike Dukakis moment, widely snarked in the press.

I am going to put some of the other short stories in the anthologies I am going to do for events and one will be donated to the XO when it is finished — the one that was going to be for Gothicfest 2007 will be the one the XO will get the second copy of when I order then up.

Did Pacione get the authors’ permission to use their stories for a project other than the one for which they were originally solicited? Somehow, I doubt it.

Story behind TABLOID PURPOSES — the anthology series was going to be called The Ethereal Gazette and almost became a publisher in 2003 . . .

There’s something really special about an anthology series that becomes a publisher.

Pearls of Wisdom from Pacione

On the topic of fan-fiction:

One thing I will say in the planning process of Tabloid Purposes V — there will be a whole new load of topics I have yet to step into and the fanfiction.net community who wrote Sliders fan fiction are the ones I am going to invite to submit original stories to this anthology. I discovered that could be an untapped source for writers.

As much as he professes to hate fan-fiction and people who write it, he gets over his qualms when he realizes he hasn’t yet exploited them. Fresh blood.

More on the topic of fresh blood:

The delivery of this story was inspired by Kevin Lucia, author of The Way Station.
The fact I get to work with Lucina on a future anthology I am putting together. This guy is very damn good at what he does and for him to get his start on an anthology that is $13 well spent, it is an honor.

Translation: a guy who writes better than I do hasn’t heard of my reputation and run for the hills, yet (*squee*). Pity the fool. Nicky’s found himself another sucker.

Regarding TPV:

Tabloid Purposes V will have its guidelines drawn out by Christmas 2007, and this will be the most epic of the guidelines yet because I need to draw out the storyline for it.

What storyline? Guidelines are guidelines. This is insane. Nicky uses no storyline for his stories, but insists on having one for his guidelines?

On the topic of his old old room mates:

The other room mate and I didn’t deserve the verbal abuse that she did — she was mentally abusive on me. The fact she dangled the threat of having me committed over my head on a regular basis, where I really think she’s the one that needs to be committed. The fact I made the remark saying, “She could be replaced.” Meaning, I was borderline kicking her out and interviewing another room mate to fill her leash slot.

Yes, folks, the lease was in his name, he was ready to kick out Crazy Michelle, and interview new room mates. Lewis Carroll couldn’t have made up anything this fantasy-filled.

The source for this intelligence wishes to remain anonymous. I have, however, verified with a secondary, unimpeachable source, that the above quotations are indeed from Mr. Pacione.
