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.

We Are All Ghosts

So I wrote a Lovecraftian superhero story. You can read it for free at the Innsmouth Free Press or download a free PDF of the issue. The issue is also available on Kindle, for the subterranean price of 99 cents. Check it out now, before the world ends.

Here’s a little background to the story:

We Will All Be Ghosts… in October

I’m as excited as an eldritch horror to announce I’ve got a new short story, “We Will All Be Ghosts,” coming out in the Innsmouth Free Press in October. It’s a Lovecraftian superhero story of sorts, which is all I can really say about it for now.

I grew up reading Lovecraft — bought my first anthology in Grade 4 — and playing Call of Cthulhu, so this is a pretty emotional moment for me. I really can’t talk about it… shoggoth has my tongue….

While you’re waiting, why don’t you check out some of the other offerings from the Innsmouth Free Press, including its Monster Bytes newspaper, created by readers.

And hey, you can always help keep the Free Press alive through donations. They’re Canadian, after all….
