The first of my four contributions to this year’s Black Library Advent Calendar, “The Road of Blades”, is now available to download, if you’re of a mind. It’s an Age of Sigmar story, and a sort-of, not-quite prologue to my current novel-in-progress, Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows.
He is known by many names…Primogenitor…Clonelord…Manflayer. The epitome of deceit and perversion, feared by man and monster alike. And he might just be the last hope humanity has, in the grim darkness of the far future… (more…)
The kind gentlemen over at the Microphones of Madness podcast have composed a two-part review of Dark Regions Press’ new anthology, The Children of Gla’aki, which includes my story, “Squatter’s Rights”.
“Squatter’s Rights” finds Charles St. Cyprian, the Royal Occultist, and his assistant, Ebe Gallowglass, facing off with the monstrous Gla’aki and his followers, on behalf of a friend with poor taste in lakefront properties.
Children of Gla’aki is available as an ebook, trade paperback or deluxe hardcover from Dark Regions Press.
Round and round it goes, all day, every day. Tik-tik-tik. The wheel of my mind, tik-tik-tik. Never slowing, never speeding up. Regular, rhythmic, routine. Tik-tik-tik. I am Jacques Futrelle’s Thinking Machine. See me ratiocinate.
All things that start must go somewhere.
Sharkpunk, the ultimate anthology of killer shark stories from Snow Books and editor Jonathan Green, is now out in audio format, courtesy of Circle of Spears Productions. It’s available as a disc or as a digital download, for your listening pleasure.
Sharkpunk was also recently reviewed by both Black Static Magazine and the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer, with the latter making special mention of my contribution, “Deep Red Bells”. The story sees Charles St. Cyprian, the Royal Occultist, and his assistant, Ebe Gallowglass, investigating a case of selachimorphic possession in Dorset. Needless to say, things go very badly, very quickly.
And speaking of the Royal Occultist and sharks, Sharkpunk 2 is coming, and a new story. “The Thunder, His Passing” finds St. Cyprian and Gallowglass in Fiji, facing off with a hungry shark god. If that sounds interesting, why not check out the Facebook page?
I recently took part in an interview of the more macabre sort, conducted by the Occult Detective himself, Bob Freeman. Why not go check it out? And be sure to check out the other interviews in the series. They make for interesting reading.
Happy Thanksgiving. Have some WKRP in Cincinnati.
