Here are the books I read in the month of June!
Nocturnal Sirens Publishing has released their Scary Snippets: Family Edition! It includes my two stories: “Blood For Blood” and “The Rhythm of the Womb”!
Like months before, here’s the books I read in May and what I thought about them.
Breaking Rules Publishing released their anthology, The Hollow — Where All Things Evil Lie #3, recently, including sixteen horror stories from authors from all around the world.
Among those stories is my weird fiction story, “In the Mountains.”
Like in previous months, here’s the books I read in April and what I thought about them.
Armageddon House is a fast-paced, evocatively written, psychological weird fiction novella about four people living, seemingly willingly, in a bomb shelter or an underground bunker in an unknown location somewhere in the world.
Neon Garden: Issue 7 is out now! It contains my weird (nearing bizarro, too) fiction story, “Flesh Beginnings, Earth Endings.”
It can be read for free here.
Prompt: The moon shines brightly in the sky, illuminating the shore around you. The scent of the sea and sand, along with the rush of the waves and the taste of salt fill your senses to the brim. Moving your body, you take your first step forwards.
Up until reading The Very Best of Caitlín R. Keirnan, I’ve only read Keirnan’s book, Black Helicopters, and her short stories “Fish Brides,” “On the Reef,” and “The Transition of Elizabeth Haskings” in the anthology Weirder Shadows over Innsmouth. I enjoyed them all, but as I read and finished The Very Best, I became entirely engrossed by Kiernan’s prose and her work.
Prompt: There’s a tradition in the West Virginia FBI department. New recruits must spend one night alone in the woods around Point Pleasant. Unfortunately, this means you.
