The long awaited anthology, Poe-it by Static Movement, has finally been released and is now available on Amazon. The book features my story, "Devil Daughters" along with many tales by other great authors. The stories contained in this book were all inspired by or written in the style of Edgar Allan Poe. Check it out!
From the Editor of Static Movement, Chris Bartholomew:
This book is dedicated to my brother C. D. Turner. He wanted to edit this book before his untimely death last August. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the writers who are in this book, Chuck would have loved it.
I have the honor of being the The August-September Selected Poet at The Horror Zine! Three of my poems from the forthcoming chapbook, Nightmare Dreamer: Poetry Inspired by the Artwork of Zdzilsaw Beksinski are featured. Check em out!
Okay folks, my apologies for being so late to the party. The Memory Eater was officially released already and somehow I missed it. Oh well, better late than never, eh?
I must say that this book has been an amazing project to work on and I am very fortunate to be included with such an outstanding group of writers and artists. It is quite an honor to be lumped together with all this amazing talent. Kudos toMatthew Hance for putting all this together. It just goes to show how a spark of an idea can spread like wildfire if only given the chance. Pick up your copy on Amazon in Print or ebook format.
Here’s the blurb for the book followed by a quick video trailer for my own included story, Vanishing Cycle:
The Memory Eater is an anthology consisting of 27 uniquely illustrated stories based on a device with the ability to locate and destroy any memory in the human mind. Follow the story of a conflicted man who tries to become the fantasy inside his head by deleting reality. Or the story of a devastated couple who lost their child and turn to a shady Memory Eater doctor to erase their problems. Discover the truth behind the urban legend regarding where the Memory Eater really came from, and how it was used during World War II in the fight against Hitler and Nazi Germany. Drop in for a tale of love, and how one man never gives up hope to find his childhood sweetheart after the Memory Eater tore them apart. Witness how a teenage prank involving the machine and a chore goes hilariously wrong. Or how, with the introduction of this new technology, mass paranoia begins to spread, prompting people to tirelessly investigate their own pasts. See how the Memory Eater will shape the future into the perfect utopia. How it evolves into much more than deleting memories. Memories will become transferable and sold in back alleys. They’ll become viral. But ultimately, nothing will be safe, not even the sacred depths of the mind.

My entry into MicroHorror’s annual story contest was accepted for publication and is now available to read here: This Well So Deep.
It’s a chilling little story about a boy who falls into a well. The theme for the contest this year is water, and this is my first time entering. I must say it was fun writing for it, and I produced a story that otherwise would not have come into existence.
There are loads of great entries so far, so stop by, have a read, and get immersed in some terrific watery horror!
Wednesday brought a bit of disappointing news. Twisted Library Press announced they must cancel the majority of their upcoming anthologies due to the economic crisis. This includes the zombie-themed,Through the Eyes of the Undead II, which was slated to include my story, Fleshward Bound.
It always hurts to hear about any small press closing or making significant cutbacks, and it stings even more when it affects you personally.
Oh well, I found a potential home for the story once, so I know I can do it again.
This is actually a bit of old news because I neglected to post it here when it was published. However, my poem Lovebugs is now available to read on Every Day Poets. You can read it HERE.
A few poems from my project, Nightmare Dreamer: Poetry Inspired by the Artwork of Zdzislaw Beksinski are appearing this month in a couple of magazines.
The Fall issue of Dark Gothic Resurrected features interviews, fiction, and poetry. Also included are three of my own poems from my forthcoming project. Titles include: One in Hell, Ocean Eyes, and Dead Sweet Love. You can find a print edition HERE.
The October 2011 issue of Twisted Dreams Magazine is available and also contains three poems from this project. Poems included here are: Desolate Prey, Hold Celestial Child, and Traveler at the End of the World. Print edition can be found HERE.
The Big Book of New Short Horror is now available for Kindle, and will be available in both trade paperback and hardcover very soon.
My story, “Sporemind,” (you know, that one inspired by those Zombie Ants) is included along with 57 (that’s right, 57!) other short stories by a fantastic line up of talented authors. At only 2.99 for Kindle, this massive collection makes for quite a bargain.
The (BIG) book is put out by Pill Hill Press and is edited by Jessy Marie Roberts. There’s lots of good stuff here to make your skin crawl and keep you up at night. You can get more info on this publication or even grab a copy by clicking HERE or on the cover.
