Early July Update with Links and Pics

"The writing is reminiscent of Joe Hill." -from a review posted on Amazon June 17th.

" prepared for twists at the end. It's a wild ride!" -from a review posted on May 1st.

"Mr. Ludens not only knows how to put a great story on the page, he sticks it right there in the dark corners of your mind. And it's not leaving anytime soon." -from a review posted on April 23rd.

Positive reviews always brighten the day of *this* brooding author. A no-name author starts by having their work read by friends, family and coworkers. I'll let you in on a secret: I don't personally know any of the readers who posted the above comments. That's one more rung up the ladder!

If you read something you enjoy, review it! (Amazon, B&N, BAM, Goodreads, and more all provide YOU with a chance to speak your mind. And it helps us authors so much. Remember, it's all about word of mouth. 

You can find this collection at a special price HERE


HERE is the only place you can read my 1930's-era horror story "Theater of the Spirit", partially inspired by Boris Karloff's leading lady in The Mummy, Zita Johann.  E-Horror is available for Nook at a very affordable price. (And disregard the 2 reviews currently posted. They're for a previous issue.)

You can't go wrong with free, right? HERE is a link to Over My Dead Body!, an online mystery web site. My story, "Monday Mourning at the Curl Up & Dye", is featured, along with several other new mystery stories. I see a couple by J.T. Seate. I wonder if this is J. Troy Seate. He and I both have stories in Unspeakable, an anthology of "creature horror" stories from Blood Bound Books.


Here's a very nice graphic created to help promote some of the books nominated for Bram Stoker Awards. This category is Outstanding Achievement in an Anthology. I had a story ("How to Make a Monster") in Slices of Flesh, an anthology of flash fiction horror stories (all about four pages or less) featuring an incredible list of outstanding authors. I am very thankful to have been a part of it. The winner, Shadow Show, features stories inspired by, and in honor, of Ray Bradbury. I own a copy and heartily recommend it to anyone who loves to read.

More updates, links and pics coming next week!

Thanks for reading,
