“Blame” published by The Dread Machine

My techno-horror story Blame has been published by The Dread Machine. It’s a “found footage” story consisting of emails, Slack conversations, Reddit threads, phone transcripts, and more unusual artifacts like git commits, JIRA tickets, door entry logs … even a Walmart receipt.

Also, like many found footage tales, the story is ultimately pieced together based on incomplete information. Multiple reads of the story should reveal new hidden details that change the your interpretation of the ending.

Listen to “Baby Food” on the Tales to Terrify podcast

The Tales to Terrify podcast has produced my short horror story Baby Food as a standalone episode. It’s a story about pregnancy, giant insects, and a camping trip gone horribly wrong. As usual, the narrator did an incredible job, perfectly nailing the pace and tone. The story starts at around the 6:40 mark and runs for just under an hour. You can listen to it on any of your favorite podcast apps and websites:

You can also read the story online, or buy the All Dark Places 3 anthology where it originally appeared.

And if you missed the earlier Tales to Terrify episodes featuring my stories, check out their productions of Something’s Wrong With Mom and Those Who Turn From God.

If you’d prefer to read the story instead of listening, you can find it here.

Listen to “Close Your Eyes” on Tall Tale TV

My post-apocalyptic horror story Close Your Eyes has been produced as an audiobook by Chris Herron at Tall Tale TV. Chris did an amazing job with the narration, perfectly capturing the pacing and mood of the story. The production runs about 18 minutes long, and is available to listen to and download for free.

“Unarmed” published by Metastellar

My dystopian political story Unarmed has been published by Metastellar. It’s a story about a citizen fighting back against a cult-like authoritarian leader who is driving the country toward another Civil War. I wrote it in mid-2020, before the last election, and before the Jan 6th insurrection. It’s scary and sad how prescient it has ended up being. Hopefully life will stop imitating art before we’re this far gone. It’s available to read for free here.
