New Anthology, New Story… The Jasper Scarab
I am excited to share more publishing news this month. My story “The Jasper Scarab” is featured in a new anthology from Lycopolis Press edited by Dean M. Drinkel titled And Death Shall Have No Dominion: Tales of the Titanic.
At the time I wrote this story I had been reading a collection of noir short stories by some respected authors of the genre. I began exploring noir themes as I developed “The Jasper Scarab,” moving on to a divergent path from my standard horror and dark fiction work. I couldn’t tell you with any certainty that the final story is indeed noir or something else, but the dark influence is most certainly there.
“The Jasper Scarab” tells the story of William Boyd, a lone childhood survivor of the Titanic disaster. An ancient Egyptian artifact that traversed the Atlantic with him appears to be the common thread in a series of tragic events involving loved ones, yet William cannot depart with the object despite his several attempts.
And Death Shall Have No Dominion: Tales of the Titanic is available in paperback on Amazon in the US and UK.
“The Last Gun” published on the digital edition of Section 8 Magazine
I’m please to announce publication of my dystopian story “the Last Gun” in the digital edition of Section 8 Magazine, an international art and literary publication based in Seattle, Washington, US.
A story of unrequited love and casual violence, “The Last Gun” tells of the Newsman, a self-appointed traveling storyteller, news carrier, and merchant. He pays a routine visit to one of his usual stops – a decrepit American city inhabited by a young population descended from the survivors of a catastrophic civil war. He brings with him news of other communities, old songs, and what is purported to be the last known gun.

The Grimorium Verum
I am excited to announce The Grimorium Verum has published today from Western Legends Publishing, containing my story “T is for Transformation: Cacophony in B Minor.” The story tells the account of Duane, a talented musician and computer programmer, who is wrapped up in his self-loathing over a congenital disability. The combination of his mood, desire, and music open the gate to a supernatural intervention.
