Big Pulp: Who's that on the Cover?


My steampunk mystery "The Biggin Hill Duel" is not only included in the brand new issue of Big Pulp, it is that issue's cover story!

Again, let me say it: Wow.

Thanks to editor Bill Olver for selecting my story, and deciding to put it on the cover! Thanks also to the cover artist, Ken Knudtsen, who did an excellent job!

As for the story, its influences include Sherlock Holmes, Fight Club and Wild, Wild West. It's mostly an homage to Doyle's greatest character, but I can't ever do anything 'normal'. I hope you'll support this small press magazine and I hope you enjoy "The Biggin Hill Duel".

See Big Pulp for more info, sneak peek, and more.

Feb 2012 Updates

I got a sneak-peek of "Slices of Flesh", due next month from Dark Moon Books. Have I mentioned lately what an absolute THRILL it is to share a table of contents with legends like Graham Masterton, Ramsey Campbell, Jack Ketchum and Tim Lebbon? The entire list of contributors is simply stellar! Keep your eyes peeled for this one!

"Zombie Kong" is receiving very favorable reviews on Amazon. Two of the five star reviews specifically mention my story "The Elephant in the Room". This is very exciting for me! "Zombie Kong" is currently available on Kindle and will be in paperback very soon.

I wrote a review for "The Mothman Files". This is posted on Amazon. This is a really good anthology that should be getting more attention! I contributed a story to this one. "Behind His Smile, A Frown" is my re-imagining of the Grinning Man (aka Indrid Cold) and his involvement in the Mothman legend.

I also wrote a review for "Fell Beasts". I am not in this anthology. I just wanted to get the word out that the stories are great. I liked it a lot.

Winter Chills Now Available

Click HERE for Static Movement's "WINTER CHILLS" anthology, available on Amazon.

Every story is horror, supernatural suspense and dark fantasy in a wintery-cold setting!

My contribution, "Souls on Ice" is the story of the last surviving member of a cup-winning hockey team torn between his desire to reconnect with his estranged son and his longing to hit the ice with his old teammates again.

He'll get the opportunity to do one... but at what cost to the other?

Combining two of my favorite things: horror and hockey!

Morpheus Tales: Best Weird Fiction, Vol. 1

Looking for some great weird fiction? You SHOULD be!

Morpheus Tales has selected stories from their first four issues and collected them in this anthology.

Some authors you may already be familiar with (especially if you are a horror fiction fan) are Michael Laimo, Aaron Polson and Lee Clark Zumpe.

My contribution, "A Story About Monsters", is included. You'll feel scared, happy and sad (though not necessarily in that order!) for the little girl telling the story.

Available HERE.
