Ceaseless West now available on Weightless


Ceaseless West: Weird Western Stories from Beneath Ceaseless Skies, is now available on Weightless Books. My first Azrael story, “The Angel Azrael Rode Into the Town of Burnt Church on a Dead Horse,” is included, along with a whole other bushel of western weirdness. And it’s only $3.99! That’s less than the price of a burnt coffee at the Starbucks outlet in the general store!

New Azrael story on the way

I really enjoyed writing the first Azrael story and I had lots of wonderful feedback from readers, so I wrote a sequel. It’s tentatively titled “The Angel Azrael Passes Judgment on the People of the Dust.” It’s still in early draft form — I need to add more bloodshed and mayhem to live up to the title — but it’s in pretty good shape. I’ll let you know when I find a home for it. In the meantime, do check out my Lovecraftian superhero story.
