Some exciting news is forthcoming. Last week, within two days, I placed stories in three anthologies, each with a fascinating theme. I hate to be a tease, however, but I can’t as yet discuss two of these projects until they’re formally announced — so I’ll just skip on to two projects that have just been released and are ready to be ordered.
One of these is the e-book edition of my young-adult supernatural horror novel LOST IN DARKNESS. You can read about it, and order it, here:
The other new release is an anthology called THE AKLONOMICON, from Aklo Press. It’s a beautiful thing indeed, a thick paperback full of illustrations and even graphic stories (in full color, no less!). The contributing authors and artists are a who’s-who of who’s hot in the world of the weird tale: Laird Barron, Richard Gavin, Simon Strantzas, Nick Gucker, Paul Carrick, Joseph S. Pulver Sr., JD Busch, Jordan Krall, Garrett Cook, Mike Dubisch, Edward Morris, Ivan McCann, Andrea Bonazzi, Nova McIntosh, Kristamas Klousch, Scott Nicolay, Steve Lines, Livia Llewellyn, Kirill Rozhkov, Brandi Jording, Jason Roberts, Eric Reinert, Tara Vanflower, Daniele Serra, Michael Zigerlig, Johnny Mains, Eric York, Jacob Parmentier, Ann Koi, J Karl Bogartte, Stanley C. Sargent, T. E. Grau, Tom Moran, David Lee Ingersoll, and Daniel Mills. The glorious cover is by Dave Carson. My own story is called “Counterclockwise” and takes place in Punktown. (Co-editor Joe Pulver had asked me for a Punktown tale!)
I’m not sure if it’s available in the USA at this time — I’ll keep you up-to-date on that as best I can — but I do know the book is currently available in the UK here:
It contains work by some of my current favorite authors, and I’m greatly looking forward to delving in!
