Read “Blame” for free on The Dread Machine

My techno-horror story Blame is now available to read for free on 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.
