/ January 7th, 2015 / No Comments »

I woke up this morning to the news that my book Unseaming is a nominee for the 2014 This Is Horror Awards in the category Short Story Collection of the Year. Both nominations and awards are chosen by popular vote, and the competition is fearsome,

So this was a surprise. A reader (or is that listener?) contacted me in late September via Twitter to tell me how much he enjoyed The Black Fire Concerto excerpt that appeared on Tales to Terrify (“Part One: The Red Empress,” read by the amazing

Fun with Amazon, second UNSEAMING edition

/ December 5th, 2014 / No Comments »

As I’ve said, Amazon “bestseller” lists don’t mean much. That reiterated, Unseaming has so far been successful enough (by my standards) to afford me a fair amount of fun as it bobs up and down in the Kindle “Horror Short Stories” rankings.   This is

A new short story in A DARKE PHANTASTIQUE

/ December 4th, 2014 / No Comments »

My horror story “Tardigrade” is out in Jason V. Brock’s A Darke Phantastique anthology, which as a physical object is easily the most opulently baroque thing I’ve ever been in. I know this because my copy arrived today:     Other contributors: Joe R. Landsdale,

/ November 24th, 2014 / No Comments »

So, the successive obligational pile-ons of preparing for the 2014 World Fantasy Convention, then attending said convention (with the whirlwind of first meetings and reunions that entailed), then catching up on unfinished tasks afterward (which, actually, I still haven’t quite managed) all mean that I’ve

Halloween shenanigans: two new stories (and a sneaky reprint)

/ November 3rd, 2014 / No Comments »

It’s only fitting that Halloween was a busy week for me, beyond reading submissions for Mythic Delirium and all the little things I’m doing to promote Unseaming.   My editor at The Roanoke Times once again asked me to write an original ghost story for
