New Year, Fresh Fears

A very happy 2020 to you all. May it deliver glories and terrors in appropriate measure.

I can report that this year will see several new works from me, both fiction and non-fiction, all of which will be announced in due course.

To begin the new year, I want to mention that PS Publishing has released Best of Black Wings; an anthology featuring stories from the first six volumes of the successful Black Wings series that editor S.T. Joshi feels are the most exemplary. I'm flattered that my 2011 tale "The Abject", which first appeared in Black Wings II, is included in this new compilation.

Best of Black Wings may be ordered here.

My sixth full-length collection of short Horror fiction, grotesquerie, is progressing very well. It will be published in September of this year by the excellent folks at Undertow Publications. We have secured the cover art and it is a striking, sumptuous piece. Watch this space for further updates.

For those who are unaware, I have been on a social media sabbatical since Samhain of last year. This was undertaken so that I can focus all my energy and attention on my next book of esotericism, which will be once again published by the incredible Theion Publishing. The book will hopefully be out sometime in 2021, but this is dependent on when I am able to complete the manuscript to my satisfaction. It is a very demanding project, but I do plan to return to Facebook once this intensive phase of creation is completed. In the meantime I will be posting any pertinent publishing news here on this website.
