Hello and welcome. It’s been a while since I had a formal update, but a lot of good things have happened. I’ve recently started a new job, as a narrative designer with Crystal Dynamics, which means that I now basically write and make things up for a full time living, and will be helping to tell stories in a franchise that I’ve loved for over a decade, Tomb Raider. I’m still a little starry-eyed about the whole affair. Additionally, I’ve completed a couple of longer pieces I’m quite proud of, one of which should see publication very soon. Here are some of the recent and upcoming releases I have planned in the next few months.
Miseria’s Chorale, a new horror anthology edited by David Nell, is now available from Amazon. Miseria’s Chorale contains my story “One”, as well as many many more stories from authors I have previously been honored to share pages with.

The Again magazine recently released their 12th issue, which features a revised version of my story “East”, with illustrations by Mike Bonsall. The Again is a free online magazine, also downloadable as an epub for your various readers.
The indomitable Hazardous Press is set to release “Tales from the Black Arts” an all new anthology of Dark Fantasy. My story “Digger’s Lament”, about an estranged pair of former grave-robbers and treasure hunters who are forced to reunite when one of their last finds proves troublesome. The world of “Digger’s Lament” is one I’ve been working on for a while, and this story was a fun side-entrance to a much larger mythology I hope to commit to the page in a later novel.
In January, Post Mortem Press will launch their new magazine: “Jamais Vu: Strange Among the Familiar”. The magazine will feature new fiction from Gary Braunbeck, Max Booth III, and a column by the legendary Harlan Ellison. I’m excited that a leaner, tighter version of my story “Shiva” will share the pages with such good company in the premiere issue. If you preorder the magazine, you’ll save a dollar off the cover.
And finally, later in 2014, friend-of-the-site Joe O’Brien will launch his fiction magazine, Flapperhouse. I’ll be contributing either a torturer/torturee psychodrama or a science fiction horror story about a lost generation ship. Whichever one Joe likes best. Head on over to the site to get a feel for Joe’s aesthetic, and to sign up for future updates.
Early in the new year, I’ll do a brief year in review, as well as update you on some of the legendarily long-in-development pieces like “Runner B” (still exists), “Green Tunnel” (Gonna happen), and “The Beast” (Did I ever even mention this one?).
Until then, happy holidays, and all my best.
