Fantasy Horror Historical historical fantasy victorian london dark fiction

Modern children fear the monster in the closet and the creature under the bed. Victorian climbing boys have no closets and no beds. What do they fear? This story originally appeared in MARION ZIMMER BRADLEY'S FANTASY MAGAZINE as the cover story. Year later, I wrote a sequel to it. "The Soul Jar" appeared in a steampunk anthology called THE SHADOW CONSPIRACY, and I'll post it next week. Click LIKE or SUBSCRIBE. I can't do this without my fantastic readers!

Fantasy Horror Historical Bible references zombies

This story is what happened when I read the Bible. Be afraid. Also, Endor refers to the Old Testament character the Sorceress of Endor, not the Star wars moon with the unbearable little furry creatures.

Horror Grants Pass Cyprus writer

This was my first invited story—a huge thrill. The post-apocalyptic anthology Grants Pass was looking for stories about people’s responses—positive and negative—to the hope of a new start, in a safe place, after the world ended—Grants Pass, Oregon. The character of Elizabeth popped into my head, and the rest of the story just...unfolded. Grants Pass appeared in the summer of 2009 and won an Australian Shadows Award for best horror anthology.

We were lazy and arrived the place a bit late, when the sun was just about to hide. Then we turned around. That was it. Beautiful sky and afterglow.
