Green Death

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”.

Part One is here. Part Two is here. I strongly suggest you listen to both, but if you’re only interested in their discussion of “Squatter’s Rights” (spoiler: they liked it), it’s in Part Two.

“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.

Sounds of the Sea

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?
