Books and Boos Press signs THE SHADOWS BEHIND!

Shadow in the Cemetery

I’m over the moon to announce that I’ve signed the contract for Books and Boos Press to publish my collection of short stories, The Shadows Behind. The original announcement is on the Books and Boos Press website here.

Release date is set right now for April 30, 2019, and there will be some signings, along with a special one up at Howe Caverns in Howe’s Cave, New York, next summer!

Although the Table of Contents is still being finalized, this collection will contain a few long out-of-print favorites, among them “Deconstructing Fireflies,” (co-written with Nathan Schoonover), “Candle Garden,” and “How I Learned to Stop Complaining and Love the Bunny,” which was originally published in Citizen Culture back in 2005.

It will also include some pieces which are only available in single anthologies, and several brand new stories as well as a preview for an upcoming novella.

I’ll keep you posted!

Year Three Anthology Cover

Anthology Year Three: A Distant Dying Ember, published by The Four Horsemen — who have produced AnthoCon in Portsmouth, New Hampshire since 2011 — is now available in Kindle format (print edition is forthcoming). It features my flash fiction piece “skin&hair teeth&bones.” Although I’d written it as an assignment in the J.
