Anthology Year Three - Distant Dying EmberHappy 2015 to all. I’m poking my head up through the dust and cobwebs that have taken over this blog to spread the word that Anthology: Year Three – Distant Dying Ember (Four Horsemen), including my short story, “Encroachment,” has been published. It’s initially available only on Kindle, but other formats are coming, including at least one that involves paper and ink. But if you have a Kindle or a Kindle reader app on another device, you don’t have to wait for all that. You can cyberscurry over right now and purchase a copy.

While you’re there, you can purchase a paperback copy of Anthology: Year Two – Inner Demons Out (Four Horsemen), which includes my short story, “Unknown Caller,” at a discount. Limited time, limited edition, etc., etc., etc. So go purchase a copy and start off your 2015 with even more wonderful tales to enjoy by a fire on a cold winter night as the wind hurls bits of ice at your windows and you tell yourself that the scratching sound you hear behind you is just that dead branch you meant to trim in November.

Really. It is. But don’t look.

Surfacing briefly to announce that I have a new story out. That Ain’t Right: Historical Accounts of the Miskatonic Valley (Mad Scientist Journal) containing my story, “The Crumbling of Old Walls” is now available for your digital devices and in good old fashioned paper. The trade paperback edition looks like this:

That-Aint-Right---paperback

Lovecraft fans will recognize the name Miskatonic Valley as a setting for many of his stories. Each contributor has written a first person account set somewhere in the valley. The book contains, “…eighteen tales of people who have either lived in this strange corner of New England or had the misfortune of visiting. Mixed in with nods to classic Lovecraft icons are stories that bring a new eye to the genre. Tales of horse drawn carriages share space with orbital shuttles, alternate worlds, and football.”

Thanks to editors Jeremy Zimmerman and Dawn Vogel for including me. I’m looking forward to reading everyone’s work.

The publisher reports you can purchase the physical book at Amazon and possibly via special order at Barnes & Noble or Powell’s.

The ebook is available via Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, iBookstore, Versent, Inktera, Scribd, and Kobo.

Oh, and the cover art by Shannon Legler is gorgeous.

Enjoy.

ImageI’m pleased to announce that my short story, “Unknown Caller” has been accepted for publication in Anthology Year Two: Inner Demons Out (Four Horsemen). The book will be released at AnthoCon, November 8-10, 2013 in Portsmouth, NH. I’ll post a complete list of contributors when that becomes available. Editor Johnny Morse went old school and mailed all of the acceptance letters and the rejection letters. So, we contributors are now monitoring Facebook to find out whose names are in the TOC.

“Unknown Caller” is about an urban exploration trip to a phone booth graveyard. I had a lot of fun writing it. Urban exploration is an interest of mine, although I haven’t done it myself…yet. Places filled with abandoned and/or decommissioned things is another interest. Phone booths are well on their way to becoming an artifact of the recent past and I learned some history about them, including the story of the Mojave phone booth.

More news as events warrant. And, while I’m here, I promise to actually start blogging again on a regular basis. It was just one of those springs for me.
