The ShadowSpinners anthology is available now in print and ebook editions from Amazon and other online retailers. Last week’s book launch party was an amazing event held at the historic Shelton McMurphy Johnson house in Eugene. You couldn’t have asked for a better venue than this creepy old Victorian mansion perched high up on a wooded hill. It was standing room only inside. Great people combined with wine, food, books, and readings make for a memorable evening. And all 13 authors featured in the book were there, which made it an extra special event.
Many thanks to Christina Lay, the editor, one of the authors, and mastermind behind the ShadowSpinners blog and the ShadowSpinners Press, for putting together this great anthology and giving it such a wonderful launch. I couldn’t be more proud to share a book with such an incredible collection of authors: Cheryl Owen-Wilson, Elizabeth Engstrom, Christina Lay, Eric M. Witchey, Stephen T. Vessels, Cynthia Ray, Pamela Jean Herber, Sarina Dorie, Alexis Duran, Lisa Alber, and Alan M. Clark.
Hope you get a chance to read and review the book! Here’s a few snaps from the party, including a group shop of all the authors on the front steps of the Shelton McMurphy Johnson House.

Here’s the cover of the upcoming ShadowSpinners anthology to be released near the end of the month. The exact date for the print and ebook release has not been set yet, but I’ve heard print books have arrived at ShadowSpinners press and the Launch party date is set, so it’s definitely coming.
My story “A Darkquick Sky” is inside, along with an eclectic collection of dark tales from many of the amazing authors who have written for ShadowSpinners, including Cheryl Owen-Wilson, Elizabeth Engstrom, Christina Lay, Eric M. Witchey, Stephen T. Vessels, Cynthia Ray, Pamela Jean Herber, Sarina Dorie, Alexis Duran, Lisa Alber, and Alan M. Clark. I’m very excited to be in such good company, to be a part of this project, and to get my hands on this awesome book!

My short story “The Menace Dupere,” first published by The Fringe, will be released as a .99 cent Kindle ebook. Djibril al-Ayad, editor of The Future Fire, called it “a gripping, well-written, and intriguingly academic horror story in the best Lovecraftian tradition.”
This is a core story in the mythology surrounding the strange town of Auxerre, Wisconsin, where many of my horror stories are set. A mad professor will stop at nothing to understand an ancient occult secret. The cost is steep, and the creature he summons may destroy the world unless one student can stop him.
Two other stories with connections to Auxerre, “The Music of Timothy Shean” and “Old Growth” are available now.
