“To Chance Tomorrow” now in WICKED SEASONS
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.
