Revenge is a dish best served cold

Third update in three days -- my short story, "Interred," has been published in Thirteen O'Clock Press's Revenge anthology.

Edited by my good friend from across the pond, Dorothy Davies, this collection is sure to pack lots of unexpected intrigue -- very much looking forward to seeing this story in print.

This anthology can be purchased online via Lulu HERE.

Hot streak continues

I have several publishing updates, which I'll be passing along over the next few days.

First -- I'm pleased to report that my short story, "Infinity Drift," has been selected to appear in the next issue of Bloodbond Magazine.  Bloodbond is a biannual magazine edited by Karen Otto, and published by Alban Lake Publishing in May / November.  My story will appear in the November 2018 issue.

That's a long way off, but I'll pass along publication details as we get closer to that November date.

Here's a sampling of cover art from recent issues...

Revenge Anthology

Kicking off Halloween season with a publishing update

Image result for digital horror fictionReaders and friends:

With Halloween just around the corner, I'm pleased to announce that my short story, Home to Meet Mother, has been selected to appear in an upcoming anthology to be published by Digital Horror Fiction.

What makes this publication special to me is that this is the very first short story I ever wrote.  The version that will appear in the anthology is a heavily reworked / modified version of that clunky, early story from a point in my learning curve when I was just starting out, only much more concise--and hence, far more potent as a piece of tension-inducing short fiction.

I'll post more details as we get closer to publication time.  Until then...

Interred published by Horror Tree

I'm pleased to announce that my short story, Interred, has been published by Horror Tree's Trembling With Fear imprint.

Interred is a story about a man who wakes up to discover that he's unable to move or speak, and about to be buried alive.

This is a very satisfying publication credit, given Horror Tree's importance to the genre / industry.  ‘Trembling With Fear’ Is Horror Tree’s weekly inclusion of shorts and drabbles, posted every Sunday.

The story can be accessed HERE.

Enjoy -- feedback welcome!

2017 starts off with a bang... and another publication!

I am pleased to report that my short story, Incident Zero, has been published in the January 2017 edition of Devolution Z horror magazine.

Incident Zero is a torn from the headlines* story depicting the first zombie encounter, preceding the broader apocalypse, told from the perspective of a harried and preoccupied Miami police officer.

*Or at least it was, when I originally penned this story back in 2013! I had a tough time finding the right venue to publish this story, and I'm incredibly happy that it found a home with Devolution Z -- a perfectly themed market for this particular work.

Happy post-Halloween!

I'm pleased to announce that my short story, Ride Like the Wind, has been published by Stupefying Stories!

Not only is this one of my most noteworthy publication credits to date, it is also personally gratifying because the publisher of Stupefying Stories is none other than world renowned author [and fellow Minnesotan], Bruce Bethe -- who happens to be one of my favorite authors! 

Thank you to Mr. Bethke for his consideration of my story--very exciting to have my work be part of such a tremendously diverse publication, with such varied and provocative stories.

I've always gotten a little choked up every time I read this piece, but I've never known whether this was attributable to me simply being too close to the material or whether the writing was actually emotionally evocative.

I invite everyone to read the story via the link provided above, and to leave comments / feedback on the Stupefying Stories website letting me know what you think.
