Free fiction: Dead Men Tell No Tales

In celebration of Halloween, here’s my favorite ghost story, originally published in Sails & Sorcery by Fantasist Enterprises and currently available in my ebook short story collection, Just Keep Weaving.

Cthulhu Haiku II

For the last several years,  Popcorn Press has been releasing a collection of poetry around Halloween.  In addition to a Halloween Haiku anthology, editor Lester Smith has focused on vampires, zombies, and the Cthulhu Mythos.  This year’s theme is a return to Lovecraft-inspired haiku and short fiction.

I was very pleased to learn that three of my poems will be included in this volume.

Submissions are still being accepted. For more info, please follow this link.

Publication date for BY FAERIE LIGHT

Editor Scott Galen is wrapping up the final details on this anthology, which is scheduled for November 1 release. Please keep in mind that the veils between the worlds are thin around Samhain and take sensible precautions, such as sprinkling a circle of salt around your reading chair or having a bit of cold iron handy.

As a contributor to this anthology, I hereby disclaim any and all responsibility for mischief done and curses laid by any fey who may regard the reading of these tales as an invitation.

But if they do show up, take pictures.
