“Hard as Stone” at Great Jones Street

Posted in Uncategorized on April 4, 2017 by bloodandstardust

Great Jones Street is the “Netflix” of short fiction.

Search my name for three other free stories. Hard as Stone was my story sent in upon receiving the call for the erotica series. It is set in the same world as my short story “How to Make Love and Not Turn to Stone” which appears in the Beauty of Death and is being reprinted in The Wish Mechanics Stories of the Strange and Fantastic.


The Outer Dark in Atlanta / Sumo 21 and the Weird Monster Panel

Posted in Uncategorized on March 28, 2017 by bloodandstardust

I was a guest at the Outer Dark Symposium for the Greater Weird this past weekend in Atlanta Georgia. It was one of the best convention experiences I’ve ever had.

I read from the short story Sumo 21. The full story can be heard here in a free version produced by Escape Pod.

I moderated the Weird Monster panel of some of the most talented weird fiction authors working today.

The full symposium will be broadcast on the Outer Dark podcast in the future. I also hope to write up a full con-report blog at some point this year. There is so much to say and share. So many talented authors and their stories to report on. Thank you to John Foster for the photos.

Holiday Book Fear Event !

Posted in Uncategorized on December 15, 2016 by bloodandstardust

December 2016 I returned to Haverhill Mass to participate in the local Haverhill library Book Fear event organized by John MacLiven.

I gave away a Kindle Fire via raffle to one lucky library goer who filled it up with The Night Marchers and Other Strange Tales e Book from Cemetery Dance as well as selections from the other authors.

Did I mention there were cookies?

I read part of Music of the Spheres from The Night Marchers.

This event was a great way to wrap up 2016 !
