“Vixen” is now available in Creepy Campfire Quarterly #1

I’m pleased to announce that “Vixen,” a good, old-fashioned horror-in-the-woods affair, is featured in EMP Publishing’s new quarterly horror anthology, Creepy Campfire Quarterly.

Described as horror stories for grown-ups, CCQ offers horror, extreme horror, and science-fiction/fantasy aimed at a mature market.  “Vixen” is the first story in the anthology, and I am honored to share the book with an extraordinary number of truly excellent modern horror writers.

I hope you’ll take a look at Creepy Campfire Quarterly #1.  It’s available on Amazon for Kindle and in print.

On a personal note, Jen Word, CCQ’s amazing editor, was an absolute joy to work with:  thoughtful, patient, enthusiastic, and welcoming.  I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!



Sunthwart and Gruelbane return!

If you’re interested in reading the rousing conclusion to the first episode of The Improbable Adventures of Sunthwart and Gruelbane, you can look here.

Keep your eyes on this site! My original short horror story, “Vixen,” is coming out on Wednesday, 20 January, as the lead story in Creepy Campfire Quarterly #1.  I’ll have links and information for you on the twentieth.

Until then, I hope you continue to enjoy adventuring with our hapless adolescent anti-heroes!

Introducing Sunthwart and Gruelbane!

I’m pleased to at long last launch the promised original content:

The Improbable Adventures of Sunthwart and Gruelbane.

Follow the adventures of two hapless adolescent anti-heroes through the pitfalls of puberty in Arkenwald, a fantasy village where the Sagas of Icelanders meet Conan the Barbarian in a cage match to the death!

(Um, sorry. I got a bit carried away there.  Too many Gor books in my impressionable youth.)

Sunthwart, who carries an umbrella as his weapon, and Gruelbane, who wields a fierce ladle, stumble upon misadventures stolen borrowed adapted from a wide variety of sources I read in my own misspent, geeky youth.

The plan is to publish each episode in two parts, one part every two weeks. I’ve already completed eight episodes, so there is literally month’s-worth of content to be had here.

I hope you enjoy getting to know our heroes as much as I’ll enjoy sharing their adventures with you.
