In accordance with the Bram Stoker Award® guidelines...

This was a decent year.  Published more things than usual.  Tales to Terrify is doing well.  I'm about to pull the ripcord on the day job and possibly move to a small New England town, get a dog and get back to writing full time. So, maybe, next year will be better.

I would love to offer all members of the Horror Writers Association (HWA) the opportunity to read two of the stories I sold -- this for their consideration for the Bram Stoker Award in Short Fiction.

One is "Instructions on the Use of the M-57 Clacker," published in October, 2013, in the anthology "Fear the Reaper," edited by Joe Mynhardt for Crystal Lake Publishing.

The second is "Jars" which appeared in "Canopic Jars: Tales of Mummies and Mummification," edited by Gregory L. Norris for Great Old Ones Publishing.

"Instructions on the Use…." is a Vietnam war tale in which the darkness of war follows a young soldier home.

In "Jars" three children come into contact with a horror they cannot understand or see but which fills their lives with an ancient darkness.

If you're a member of HWA and have an interest in reading either or both of these stories, drop me a note at:

Of course you could buy the books.  There are treats aplenty in there for all of you.

And stop by and have a listen.
