“Nothing to See Here” to appear in GENX-ED: The authentic antho of Gen-X terrors!

Gen-Xed Dark Ink Books Logo

I’m beyond ecstatic to announce that my short story, “Nothing to See Here,” will appear in Dark Ink Books’ anthology GenX-ed … the original horror fiction anthology completely by Gen-Xers—and what we brought home when the streetlights came on will terrify you. If you did things like eat powdered Tang and cookies for dinner, spent hours playing Atari, were awed by a 13-inch TV and/or did dangerous tricks on bicycles without a helmet? Or if you’re not a Gen-Xer and want to see what you missed? You need this book!

In “Nothing to See Here”: On the heels of the Challenger disaster, Doreen’s dying mother warns her of the approach of a deadly cloud—but the real danger lurks in a place she doesn’t expect.

That’s not the only trip down a dangerous memory lane. Edited by Rebecca Rowland, these twenty-two tales by latchkey kids push the boundaries on everything from VHS tapes and microwaves to subdivisions, banned movies, malls, Polaroids, Chernobyl and fold-out maps. Features stories by:
