The contract has been signed and returned, and the requested period of confidentiality has passed, so I’m pleased to announce that I’ve sold my story, ECDYSIS, to Flame Tree Publishing.
Sometimes, signing contracts is exciting!
Ecdysis will appear in the forthcoming anthology, Gothic Fantasy: Chilling Horror Short Stories. The following description is from the product page:
With a new foreword by Dr Dale Townshend, this is a chilling selection of brand new stories, and essential tales of horror from the infamous pens of Walter de La Mare, William Hope Hodgson, Arthur Machen, Henry James, Algernon Blackwood, M.R. James, Edgar Allen Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and other nefarious authors… A dazzling collection of the most gripping tales of horror, vividly told.
Hardback Deluxe edition: 480 pages, 25 illustrations
I’m thrilled to be a part of this collection, and I hope that when it becomes available you’ll consider checking it out. Publication is scheduled for August 15, 2015.
