Spooky Empire


I’ll be at Spooky Empire over the weekend starting with a panel and signing at the Creator’s Track book table Oct. 26.

Copies of Dark Hours and Disciples of the Serpent will be available as well as paper editions of Quoth the Raven and Infernal Ink magazine featuring two new short stories, “A Cooler of Craft Brew” and “What the Black Water Knows.”

Look for me amid all the other excitement.





New Stories

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.


What the Black Water Knows is a very dark, erotic Lovecraftian tale included in the Fall/Winter 2018 issue of Infernal Ink magazine. Order here.

New Cover – Bob Eggleton


Here’s the cover on my new book. It’s a 70,000-word Lovecraftian novel. Design is by David Dodd of Crossroad Press with art by multiple Hugo-winner Bob Eggleton.

Painted Moonlight – dark surreal mystery

“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.
