My short Cape Cod horror story I Row has been accepted by Gypsum Sound Tales for their Thuggish Itch: By the Seaside anthology. It’s a story about trying to escape from the past by any means necessary, no matter how many tries it takes.
Way, way back on December 24th, I wrote my 2021 Awards Eligibility and Year in Review post, assuming that the year was, well, over. What a difference a week makes. Since I wrote that post, I’ve had four more acceptances and two more publications.
- “Me, a Hero” accepted by Aurelia Leo
- “Dragonsbreath” accepted into the From the Ashes anthology
- “Close Your Eyes” accepted by Tall Tale TV
- “Unarmed” accepted by Metastellar
- “Up on the Rooftop” published on The NoSleep Podcast
- “Something’s Wrong With Mom” published on the Tales to Terrify podcast
That means I already have 19 stories lined up for publication in 2022, and the year hasn’t even started yet.Continue reading →
My short crime story Me, a Hero has been accepted by Aurelia Leo.
My dark urban fantasy Dragonsbreath has been accepted into From the Ashes: An Anthology of Elemental Urban Fantasy by Aurelia Leo.
My post-apocalyptic horror story Close Your Eyes has been accepted for audio production by Tall Tale TV, currently scheduled for release in late January 2022.
My dystopian political screed Unarmed has been accepted by Metastellar for publication in January 2022.
2021 was a crazy productive year for me, writing-wise. In my first full year as a short story author, I published over 20 short stories, as well as a dozen drabbles and a half-dozen podcast audio dramas.
If you’re nominating for any of the major horror, sci-fi, or other awards out there (Hugo, Nebula, Stoker, Astounding, etc.), please consider giving some of these stories a read.Continue reading →
My short techno-horror story Blame has been accepted by The Dread Machine. It’s a “found footage” horror story about a strange incident at a technology company, told through a mixture of emails, chat logs, terminal commands, git commits, computer code, audio transcripts, Reddit threads, JIRA tickets, door entry logs … even a Walmart receipt. I can’t think of a better home for it than The Dread Machine.
