Autumn Is Coming


Just got word from Mike Davis that my story "Cul Du-Sac Virus" is going to be included in his Autumn Cthulhu anthology. As an avowed lover of Autumn (there really is no better season) I'm both honored and excited to have one of my stories among the leaves.

Inferno #1 An Anthology of Warhammer Short-Fiction

The classic title returns as a new anthology of short stories, penned by debut and some of Black Library's fan-favourite authors. This collection showcases some of the best new works from across Games Workshop’s many universes; from the grim darkness of the 41st millennium, to the brutal underhive of Necromunda, through to the sprawling realms of the Age of Sigmar, and the savage sports fields of Blood Bowl.

Into this oubliette comes Byrun Hess, disgraced Captain of the Sigmarite forces, who finds himself buried in a dead-end posting with a tiny garrison, ranging from the undisciplined to the almost heretical. While Hess attempts to instill some measure of discipline, one of Chamon’s brutal shardstorms quickly shifts his priorities to simple survival. Things go from bad to worse when the garrison’s Warden is viciously murdered in a bloody scene that shows signs of dark sorcery, and tempers flare as the survivors accuse each other of the crime. Not sure who to trust, Hess' disquiet is compounded by the chilling discovery of a newly exposed ancient vault in the mountainside that once confined a terrifying supernatural force – the likes of which these mortals have never seen
