2019 Round-Up: All the Ish fit to Print
Had a few short stories published. Join me, won't you?
BEHOLD THE UNDEAD OF DRACULA
This is, perhaps, my favorite cover of any anthology I've been a part of. If I'm been super super honest, I never remember the name of the story I wrote. It takes me way too long. I'm fairly sure it was "Mina's Castle," though.
I had the idea of a Boston townie in a Hammer Dracula flick. Admittedly, a lot of it was picturing how funny it would be, Victorian English accents next to a thick Mass townie accent. And, from there, I thought, okay, first person, and emails, to mirror the original novel.
THE PHANTASMAGORICAL PROMENADE
A PLANET X joint. I included a story set in my Whispering Pines universe, which may or may not be compiled if I ever get my ass in gear and do the Whispering Pines collection. Story is entitled "Avaunt." It's essentially a campfire ghost story.
FREAKY TALES FROM THE FORCE: SEASON 1
Johnny Raab was nice enough to let me hijack his universe, and send it crashing into mine. "Cat's Claw Inc." is a continuation of my story from LETTERS OF DECLINE, which was called "Cat's Claw LLC." Sheriff Kotto gets to hobnob with the high-fallutin'.
A big one for me. "Unmoored," is the story, and it's very personal. It deals with a home health aide, caring for an elderly man with Alzheimer's. People have seemed to respond to it, so far. Not too shabby getting into a book with Brian Evenson, and all sorts of other great genre writers. It's a book I would buy even if I wasn't in it, which honestly isn't always the case.
