New Anthology: Chiral Mad 2

Seeing my story, “Mneomonicide,” published in Chiral Mad 2 among the work of so many other great and accomplished writers gives me a wonderful–and thrilling–feeling. Editor Michael Bailey has assembled an astounding collection of fantastic, short, psychological horror fiction here, with all profits from sales of the book to go directly to Down syndrome charities. I’m very pleased and proud to be part of this book. It’s a win-win-win for everyone involved–we writers get to be part of a beautiful anthology, you readers get to enjoy a feast of fine fiction, and together we all raise some money for a good cause. That’s the genius of Michael Bailey at work. I hope you’ll give Chiral Mad 2 your support. It’s now available on Amazon and would make a great gift for all your friends and loved ones who need a little good, dark fiction to take the edge off their holiday cheer.

In keeping with the theme of the anthology, all the stories involve an element of chirality–the property of asymmetry, which exists when an object does not match its mirror image. Human hands are one example. You can learn more at chirality.org. Each author wove this concept into their stories.
