Today is the last call on WANDERING SPIRITS: TRAVELING MARY SHELLEY’S FRANKENSTEIN, my limited-edition travelogue chapbook from Tallhat Press.

This one fell through the blogging cracks for some reason. Nonetheless, this roundtable curated and conducted by Acep Hale is a great vehicle for showing how nuanced the horror genre is, but also how many voices are out there improvising it. I was honored to be part of the “Quiet Horror” panel with Kristi DeMeester, C.M. […]Read more "What does “Quiet Horror” mean? Five Horror Writers Weigh In–Lovecraft eZine"
I’ve blinked a thousand times and the words haven’t changed, so…guess what? I’m a World Fantasy Award Finalist for my short story “The Neurastheniac,” which appears in Joseph S.

In addition to […]Read more "The Curse of Frankenstein, Updates, and Other Frankenphilia"
