THE SHADOWS BEHIND cover reveal!

I’m thrilled to show off the cover for my forthcoming short story collection, The Shadows Behind, coming from Books and Boos Press on April 30, 2019! The cover’s art is by A.L. Cortez, who had some interesting things to say about its creation. You can read that on the press’ website here: https://booksandboospress.com/2019/03/21/the-shadows-behind-cover-reveal/

The Shadows Behind Final Cover

This collection, which is foreworded by Damnation Island author Stacy Horn, contains six long out-of-print favorites, among them “Doors” (Carpe Articulum, 2010), as well as four featured in various, esoterically-themed anthologies (which, if you didn’t buy those anthologies, you probably haven’t read).

What’s most exciting are the seven new stories that have never been published before: “Immolation,” “37 Birds,” “Hourglass,” “Snake in the Grass,” “Hairless Girl Does the Hula,” “Once, the World Was Dark Enough for Sleep,” and “Attempted Delivery.”

That said, nothing makes you realize this is really happening like receiving the hard-bound proof in the mail! It arrived on the first day of spring, and it was a thrill to hold it. I especially love the feel of the matte cover, as well as the publisher’s paper choice.

So…in just about a month, The Shadows Behind will be available. I hope you’ll pick up this collection, and I hope you love it!
