“That Ye Shall Transgress” in ProleSCARYet; “The House of Shapes” in Dark Matter Magazine

Happy May Day to all! It’s a double publication day, with two new short stories appearing.

First, “That Ye Shall Transgress” unites with a thrilling TOC in ProleSCARYet: Tales of Horror and Class Warfare, in which an alternative to vacation reveals an all-consuming system we dwell in every day.

Over in Dark Matter Magazine #3, visit “The House of Shapes,” where the titular house vexes and isolates an already alienated young girl. She’ll have to get rid of it. There’s an audio version, too!

“The Inheritance Thread” in Love Letters to Poe; interviews

This week has been busy! The Worm and His Kings, my new queer cosmic horror novella, released from Off Limits Press on the 15th, and it’s now available from Bookshop if you would like to support indie bookstores.

In the short fiction realm, Gothic horror magazine Love Letters to Poe published my coming of age tale “The Inheritance Thread” in their most recent issue. It’s a story of lineage and burdens, and the long-sought voice of a mother. The magazine’s podcast, available on both the site and podcast places like Spotify, has an audio version to, narrated by my wife J. The page also includes a short interview with me about the story. Check it out here.

In the non-fiction department, I’ve had the pleasure of appearing on several venues:

Gabriel Hart invited me to LitReactor, where we talked cosmic horror and NYC.

Necronomi.Com had me on to talk in depth about one of my favorite horror movies, The Wicker Man (1973).

And most recently, I appeared on the Women in Horror Film Festival Facebook page for a video interview about The Worm and His Kings.

“Hopscotch for Keeps” in Places We Fear to Tread; “Autotomy” in Monsters Out of the Closet

Two new stories for September!

First, travel back to the ’90s in central New York in this location-based horror anthology. Play a game, kids, but make sure you know what you’re playing for.  My story “Hopscotch for Keeps” appears in Places We Fear to Tread.

Then, Lovely LGBTQ+ horror podcast Monsters Out of the Closet released a new episode today.  DOUBLE focuses on doppelgangers. My story appears second, “Autotomy.” Mom is gone, replaced by a stranger, and she has plans.  Check it out here or on Spotify, iTunes, any podcast place!

“Scarlet Hide Molly” on Monsters Out of the Closet

I’m a couple days behind on this; the last week has been trying.

But I’m proud to say my story “Scarlet Hide Molly,” which previously appeared in Planet Scumm #6, has now been adapted to one of my favorite podcasts, Monsters Out of the Closet. This podcast takes horror fiction by LGBTQIA authors and adapts it into full productions with voice cast, music, sound effects.

The second story in their latest episode, WITCH, Robin Tynan, Abigail Birkett, Taara Rangan, and Anna Podds do an incredible job voicing narrator and the three women who tell campfire tales of the titular mountain fiend. Give it a listen!

“Crones in Their Larval State” in The Arcanist; “Help” in Tales to Terrify

It’s been a few weeks, but this weekend brings two new stories!

First up, there’s a new flash fic over at The Arcanist, “Crones in Their Larval State,” about witches and daughters and the trouble they bring.

Second, for your listening pleasure, the incredible Emily Strand narrates my short horror story of an odd pet-sitting job and all its complications.  Check out “Help” over at Tales to Terrify.

There will be more to come this week, so check back in soon. It’s another busy month and I’m just trying to keep it up!
