Cover Reveal and Release Date

After much anticipation, PICKMAN’S GALLERY has a rapidly approaching release date. Scheduled for release on August 18th (HPL’s birthday), my story “Beyond the Veil of Pretty Pink Lies” is one of seventeen tales in this anthology inspired by Lovecraft’s Pickman’s Model. I’m extremely proud of Pretty Pink Lies, and find it particularly fitting that it comes one year after being unable to attend NecronomiCom (the intended publication date), which ultimately resulted in my writing hiatus and tangential pursuit of painting. Perhaps this series of coincidences will bring me back to the written word, but in the meantime, snag  a copy of PICKMAN’S GALLERY (I’ll post a link as soon as it’s available) and check out what may or may not be my final story.

As always, thanks for reading.

Borderlands 6 Review: The British Fantasy Society

The British Fantasy Society has posted a favorable review of Borderlands 6 with a nod to my story, “The Last Plague Doctor.”

“The Last Plague Doctor” by Rebecca J. Allred is a spellbinding tale of plague and death, imbued with intense, dark lyricism of uncommon strength.

You can read the review in it’s entirety here, and if you haven’t already, pick up a copy of this amazing anthology by clicking the image below.

Cheers!

Publication Announcement: When You See It

I’m pleased to announce that my story, “When You See It,” has been chosen to appear in Volume One of the Time Alone Press anthology trilogy LET US IN. The Table of Contents (see below) includes Ray Garton and John F.D. Taff.

“When You See It” is one of a handful of stories I’ve written so far inspired by the King in Yellow mythology. It almost received a subtitle (The Yellow Sign), but in the end I decided to keep it simple.

I’m thrilled to be a part of this project which is tentatively scheduled for an October release. Stay tuned for updates and ordering information.
