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!

Interview: Medical and Macabre

Earlier this year, I was interviewed by author Gwendolyn Kiste, and the interview has recently posted on her blog. Among the questions addressed are:

So far, your fiction has been primarily horror. What first attracted you to the genre? Were you always a fan from childhood, or was it something you learned to love as you got older?

By day, you work as a pathologist. Do you find that elements of the medical industry often creep their way into your writing, or do you tend to keep your day job and your fiction mostly separate?

What upcoming projects are you working on?

Read the entire interview here.

Also, if you haven’t already done so, please consider picking up a copy of Borderlands 6. Trade paperback and Kindle copies are available from Amazon. Sadly, the publisher has done very little in the way of promotion and distribution for this volume, so any support in the way of reviews or sharing links would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
