Hello again, friends. It’s me, Enigmatic Icon, back from my too-hot-for-early-1990s-daytime-TV summer vacation. I really let my moss down this year, with holidays at Stonehenge, Amsterdam, and Little Rock, Arkansas. I even saw the Rolling Stones, and between you, me, and the snails in my cavernous nostrils, those rock stars are getting even older than me…Anyway, that was my dream vacation, I actually spent most of the summer eating Roquefort cheese while watching reruns of the Rockford Files. Luckily for you, my bosses at Stone Skin Press have been a lot more productive–here’s a taste of what they’ve been up to.

 

I’m getting tired again just looking at all that. Plus, there are even more announcements right around the corner, but for now I’m going to get back to daydreaming of the summer that could have been. Seems like all I did was lay waste to foreign temples, but I really ought to quit–I just read that smoking ziggurats is bad for your health. See you next time, Stone Skinners and Pelgraneteers…

As summer envelopes us in its muggy embrace, I, the Enigmatic Icon, come to deliver you auspicious news. What’s that? No, I haven’t finally hunted down the interlopers to my island who stole the crown of golden vines from off my stony brow. Or gotten to the bottom of who’s been spreading rumors about my love life, but that’s a whole other deposit of igneous material, if you catch my drift. No, today I bring you tidings of my employer, Stone Skin Press–they have been busy since last time I checked in here.

 

Cold drinks and hot reviews–it doesn’t get much better than that. We’ve got some brand new stuff coming out in the days to come, so be sure to follow our Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ pages for up to the minute updates, and of course there’s also the main Stone Skin site.

 

I’ll be back in August, and until then do as I do, and watch out for chisels.

Good afternoon, Pelgrane people. It’s me, Enigmatic Icon, here again with another update from Stone Skin Press. With summer nearly upon us it’s starting to get hotter than the top of my head, so we’ve got some cool links to help keep you refreshed all summer long. First up are three new entries for our ‘Stone Skin on the Rocks’ series, where we ask authors to pair their fiction with a thematic beverage:

 

There will be more entries in the weeks to come, plus other intriguing new developments. Be sure to follow our Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ pages for up to the minute updates, and of course there’s also the main Stone Skin site.

One last thing to mention is that our entire ebook catalog is now available through the website Weightless Books. They are a wonderful ebook merchant and entirely DRM-free, so be sure to check them out if they’re not already on your radar. Here’s our “Meet Stone Skin” post over on their site.

See you next month, and until then may all your fault lines be still.

Hey there. It’s me, Enigmatic Icon, back with answers to questions so timely you hadn’t even thought to ask them yet. Who hewed me from the living rock of my jungle home and imbued me with seemingly immortal life? By what insidious design was I first loosed upon an unsuspecting world? If I am an icon–and I must confess that I am–what inscrutable power am I meant to represent? Should you fear me? How do you get an ebook from the Stone Skin Shop onto your ereader?

Get comfortable, because all this may take quite some time and… Um, you know what, the Pelgrane looks pretty agitated over there, and the last time I ruffled those feathers it took forever to clean up, so maybe I’d better just stick to the script. This time. In brief, then, here’s the latest from Stone Skin Press:

That’ll do for now, but I’ll be back next month with plenty more to share. Rock on, friends.

Hi everyone, it’s me again: Enigmatic Icon. April showers bring May flowers, sure, but do you know what else they bring? Moss and lichens. And do you know what moss and lichens bring? Insects. And do you know what insects bring? Birds. As if I wasn’t busy enough with the Pelgrane, now I’ve a nest of sparrows in my nose. Just another day in paradise, I guess. Anyway, I’ve brought you fresh tidings from the good scribblers at Stone Skin Press:

 

That’s probably plenty of gravel for you to chew for now, but I’ll be back next month to give you another update. Until then, stay stony, everyone.

Enigmatic Icon here. The Pelgrane wants me to fill you in on the news over at Stone Skin Press, so I came as fast as I could. There’s been a lot of remarkable excavations at the word quarries, and since we keep unearthing new specimens I’ll try to stop in a little more often to keep you all abreast. Here’s what we’ve turned up this month:

 

That’s all the news that’s fit to chisel in granite for now, but I’ll be back next month to give you another update. Have a gneiss weekend, everyone.
