The cover of Apex Magazine, issue 130. The tag line is "Strange. Surreal. Shocking. Beautiful." The cover image is an art piece of a  a gray-striped humanoid figure reminiscent of an android sitting on a stack of books, with a bright orange-gold sun stencil in its head and the same orange-gold color seeming to seep out of a hole in the center of its chest. The same gold is also dripping from the end of a pen-like object held in its right hand, above a large book with glowing yellow-gold pages. Art by J.R. Slattum.

Apparently I’m eligible for awards?

“Endless Blue” is eligible for Hugo, Nebula, and other fantasy-friendly awards. I write about it a bit here.

The Book cover for 99 Tiny Terrors, a horror anthology edited by Jennifer Brozek, published by Pulse Publishing. The very hard-to-read blurb at the bottom reads '99 Tiny Terrors is an absolutely wild ride through some truly weird territory. Fast, freaky, furious, and fun! Highly recommended!' Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Ink and V-Wars.

“Slivers” out now

My flash fiction piece “Slivers” is one of the 99 amazing quick stories in 99 Tiny Terrors, edited by Jennifer Brozek. You can buy the ebook now at the ebook provider of your choice.

The cover for the book "Upon A Thrice Time." The background is a drawn image of a ghostly person laying among a hedge of dark green plants with reddish pink burgeoning flowers that look like a cross between roses and peonies. The person is scratching three brightly-bloody wounds into their left hand. The title overlays the image in a grayish green art deco font.

“Endless Blue” out now

My story “Endless Blue” is one of the stories in this amazing fairy tale mashup anthology, the third in the series. My story is a retelling of George McDonald’s “The Day Boy and the Night Girl” – my favorite of all fairy tales – combined with Grimm’s “The Blue Light.” I enjoyed writing this so much, and am thrilled it’s now in the world. Upon a Thrice Time is only available in print from Air and Nothingness Press via that link, due to limited print runs.
