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.
*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.
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.
Just a quick note to inform that my short story, Lost Luggage, was published as the feature story of February 2016 by Anotherealm -- a publication that focuses on speculative fiction in the horror, sci fi, and fantasy genres.
Being published by Anotherealm is a prestigious honor, as only one story is selected to be published every month. I'm quite pleased that this quirky story found a home at such a perfect match of a publication venue.
Here's what the Anotherealm editors had to say about my short story:
I don't fly any more. I flew a lot when I was younger and was terrified each time. A white-knuckle passenger, I several times shuddered my way through a flight from Kennedy to Dhahran (13 hours non-stop). That one is no longer flown, but that's why this story struck me as horrifying. It's a dark, modern nightmare to warm you these cold February nights. No. Don't thank me. Instead drop a comment on our BBS. -GM
I'm pleased to report that the year has started off with a bang, as I just got word that my short story, Lost Luggage, has been selected to appear in Anotherealm's 2016 lineup.
Anotherealm is a horror / sci fi / speculative fiction publication that features one short story every month. My short story will be published next month [February 2016].
Lost Luggage is a story about a woman on-board a trans-Pacific flight with her family who awakens to discover that her son is no longer on the plane. A genre-bending weird tale, I'm pleased that this quirky story landed with a great publisher like Anotherealm.
