I’m happy to announce that my story, “Right of Crossing,” will soon be published in The Pulp Horror Book of Phobias, coming soon from Lycan Valley Press. In this anthology of horror stories, which includes pieces by Michael Bailey, Richard Chizmar, Chad Lutzke, and Tim Waggoner, each author wrote a pulp horror story inspired by a real-life phobia. My tale follows a cold-blooded but superstitious Norwegian hitman as he tries to escape from Brooklyn with the help of the Russian mafia. More info soon!
Artist Luke Spooner created this rich and evocative illustration for my story in the forthcoming anthology, Shadows Over Main Street 2. Much of my tale, “A Song Left Behind in the Aztakea Hills,” is grounded in research I did in my hometown, Northport, and mixes a fair bit of fact with its fiction regarding the time Jack Kerouac spent here in the 60s. I went out on a limb with this one narratively as well so it’s very close to my heart. Edited by D Alexander Ward and Doug Murano, Shadows should be published later this year.
Recently released by eSpec Books, The Awakened: Modern includes my short story “The Little Sisters of the Hourglass.” Set in the world of the Awakened role-playing game created by Hal Greenberg, the anthology includes a mix of modern fantasy stories influenced by super-hero themes. Published by eSpec Books.
