Two new stories are arriving, just in time for Halloween.
A Cooler of Craft Brew, my retelling of an Edgar Allan Poe Tale is featured in the new anthology Quoth the Raven from Camden Park Press. The collection features poems and stories that update Poe’s tales for the 21st Century. Order here.

At W.T. Bland Public Library’s DreadFest recently reading some wicked bits of flash fiction with my friend Tom Lucas, author of Pax Titanus.
I have a brief tale called “Custom Scent” in the new issue of Sanitarium magazine, a really interesting little publication that carries its theme throughout. Artwork includes case files wrapped around each story, and there’s much more. Get it here.
Mercedes Fox was kind enough to interview me about Dark Hours, my new novella.
You can read it here.

“Painted Moonlight,” a surreal and dark mystery, can now be read for free at the J.J. Outré Review. It’s a tale that I’m pretty happy with, though it might not be to all tastes.
It will also be in the J.J. Outré annual “best of” anthology coming soon in ebook and paper formats.

The magazine can be read online, or a paper copy’s available. Learn more here.
I’m told the mag will also be on sale at bookmarkit in Orlando.
I’ve been wanting to do program of flash readings for a while, really dating back to when I read individual flash tales in “Salons” at Goddard College, Washington campus. As part of the Full Sail Literary Arts Festival recently, I did a unified program called “Decoherence,” using the short tale from DM du Jour as a framing device for several pieces of horror flash. It was loads of fun.
My story “Pilgrim” can be found in the June ’15 issue of Heater, the noir magazine. It’s the brief story of a cop who contemplates his own existence as he examines a brutal crime scene. I was really pleased with how the flash piece turned out.
Heater can be purchased in electronic versions here, and Vol. 3, No. 5, has a host of other tales besides mine.
Danse Macabre’s DM du Jour recently featured my flash horror tale Decoherence.
You can read it for free here.
