Hello, and welcome to my collection of weird tales and horror fiction for your enjoyment and criticism. I’ve always found that feedback from people not obligated to say nice things has been the best tool for continuing to hone my writing. Here are five of the newest stories for your consideration.
- Axis Mundi – Loops and whorls of the dead sketching glyphs and geometric shapes drift around the ghost ship, held close by the Yggdrasil’s gentle gravity.
- A horror-sci fi story about advanced humans making first contact with an isolated group of humans who’ve been trapped aboard an ancient generation ship.
- The Crisis – Somewhere, swimming in the night above, there are eyes. There are eyes like black stars, and they see me.
- A mashup of small town Americana and Lovecraftian horror, first written for Murano and Ward’s fantastic Shadows over Main Street Collection.
- Digger’s Lament – The voice in the dark laughed, a throaty whisper of mirth. “You are Palta Qynes, and you are no man of the Emperor. You are a digger, and a criminal, and a betrayer.”
- A fantasy novella following two miscreant archeologists sifting through the ruins of the kingdoms of dead gods.
- Between the Walls – “Good morning, sir,” the giant said, in tones as warm and as inviting as smoke, and then he lifted his gleaming sword in a salute. “I bring you the mercy of Augustus Heraclius, should you desire it.”
- A historical horror story about a luckless mercenary during a failed invasion of Constantinople in the 7th century.
- Mapping the Crooked Places – The blooming corpse-flower smell surged, hotter and brighter than ever, and if I could have scaled the air itself to ascend to the roof above me, I would have clawed through, ground my fingers to the bone.
- A new version of my story about addiction, architecture, and urban obsession. If you’re familiar with the original version, I think this new take is greatly improved.
Beyond that, look around in the Library on sidebar, and you’ll find a variety of older short horror stories for your enjoyment. As always, I am very grateful for your interest, and would be happy to hear any comments or criticism you have.
