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.

Decoherence – The Show

Sidney_Williams_Decoherence_n

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.

Heater – Noir Magazine appearance

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.

There are a few Easter eggs in the story, hinting at the scientific theory in play beneath the plot’s odd events.

My Lovecraftian story “Sleepers” is the tale of a woman searching London for obscure sheet music that may have ties to a mysterious security society and potential danger.
