American Cannibal
Edited by Rebecca Rowland

COMING MARCH 7TH, 2023

Includes my short story, "Flesh Communion" 

Those who do not learn from history are doomed to (rep)eat it.

A mother and daughter negotiate the Oregon Trail with grisly results; an elementary teacher watches the carnage of The Challenger explosion spill over into her own classroom. A possible prospector traveling west is drawn to an isolated inn where no one walks away hungry; a 1950s housewife shares the gruesome repertoire of behavior expected of a proper lady. Prohibition and women’s suffrage, the Civil War and the Vietnam War, the JFK assassination conspiracy and the Y2K hysteria: the annals of American history are reimagined with a side order of cannibalism by twenty of the biggest names writing horror fiction today.

Forget what you read in the textbooks.
Everything you were taught about the Land of Liberty is about to be history.

Nightmare Sky: Stories of Astronomical Horror
Edited by Red Lagoe

Includes my short story, "Star of San Luis" 

The very dust of the stars' explosive pasts traveled lightyears across the unknown, and now that dust pulses through our veins, drawing our eyes up, back to our origins. Since the dawn of humanity, the stars have called for us to gaze upon their brilliance, and we sit around campfires and make up tales of their histories. Tales which are often fraught with horror.

Ranging from psychological to apocalyptic, sci-fi to bizarre, quiet to gruesome and all the horrors in between, these 28 dark stories and poems explore our awe-inspiring-and terrifying-human connection to the stars. Take a look through the eyepiece and into an astronomer's failing mind. Observe an obsessed lover who can't get enough of the celestial view. Board a space station as the last remaining people debate whether humanity is worth saving. And ask yourself... What will you do when the sky begins to devour us all?
