New Short Story

I am happy to announce my story “Mother Sylvia” will appear in the forthcoming Nightscript V from Chthonic Matter. As a reader, the annual October release of this excellent collection of strange tales is one of the highlights of my year. As a writer, I’m delighted to have a second story included in the pages of N. (“The Cuckoo Girls” appeared in Nightscript I.)

No small part of my—I’m running out of synonyms for joy, happy, thrilled, over the moon, squee, etc., so fill in the ____ here—is due to the outstanding company I get to keep as a Nightscripter. Here is the TOC for the 2019 volume, as announced by CM Muller (Hidden Folk, Synth):
