A couple months ago, I eagerly clicked on the TOC reveal for a new anthology edited by Stephen King. It was a killer concept, all stories about the fear of flying, and at first glance, one hell of a lineup, but as I read name after name, I realized something was missing. Something major. Like 51% of the population major. There were no women in Stephen King’s anthology.

So I said something on Twitter. I ranted to a few friends. And then I decided to put my money where my mouth is… Continue reading

BizarroCon 2016: The Wonderland Awards: Stories Matter

I’ve been home from BizarroCon for just over a week, trying to get back into the swing of things while fighting a cold. As has been the case for the last several years, BizarroCon was a wonderful experience, a chance to reconnect with friends and industry peers, to talk shop, workshop, give and listen to readings, and, most importantly, laugh. Shortly before this year’s BizarroCon, Rose O’Keefe invited me to present the Wonderland Book Award for Best Collection. “Of course,” I said. “Three- to five-minute speech? No problem.” Continue reading

Giallo Fantastique

My latest anthology, Giallo Fantastique, is out now. As we say on the back of the book, Giallo Fantastique is “An anthology of original strange stories at the intersection of crime, terror, and supernatural fiction. Inspired by and drawing from the highly stylized cinematic thrillers of Argento, Bava, and Fulci; American noir and crime fiction; and the grim fantasies of Edgar Allan Poe, Guy de Maupassant, and Jean Ray, Giallo Fantastique seeks to unnerve readers through virtuoso storytelling and startlingly colorful imagery.” Continue reading
