My new story “To Chance Tomorrow” is now available in the New England Horror Writers’ anthology WICKED SEASONS.
In a future where life is eternal, teen-aged Mich struggles to accept her father’s abandonment. Her much-older boyfriend’s unorthodox birthday gift seems to provide some comfort—until his jilted admirer shows up. In the tradition of “The Light of Other Days” and “Obstinate Uncle Otis” comes a tale of grief…and what it truly means to be broken.
The tale is alongside many others, including from James A. Moore and Christopher Golden, but I can tell you Robert J. Duperre’s “The Basement Legs” and Addison Clift’s “Furious Demon” are must-reads. They’re both all kinds of creepy amazing.
Wicked Seasons, the NEHW Press anthology containing my story “To Chance Tomorrow,” is due out in November. I’m not only excited about having my work in such a great volume with so many cool stories, I’m excited to present the trailer! After you watch Read the rest of this entry
My short story “Vanity,” which was inspired by Poe’s “The Oval Portrait” is now available in Dark Opus Press’ In Poe’s Shadow.
The neatest part of this anthology—and why it should be part of any Poe-lover’s collection—is that each piece is inspired by one of Poe’s, and they’re grouped as such. If you’re a fan of “The Fall of the House of Usher,” there’s Sorrel Wood’s “De’Atherton House;” if you’re a fan of “The Masque of the Red Death” there’s S.S. Hampton, Sr.’s “The Mumbai Malaise;” if you’re a fan of “The Premature Burial,” there’s Dorian Dawes’ “Loving the Dead.”
