There’s a new story available for patrons at my Patreon – “Ouroboros” is a bit of dystopian science-horror by way of Lovecraft. It takes place during the final hours of humanity’s final redoubt, as it crumbles before the onslaughts of the Crawling Chaos.
It’s also a sequel of sorts to “Eliza”, which is available to read over at the Lovecraft eZine. Why not go read that one for free, and then check out “Ouroboros” for a buck. And afterwards, why not take a look at some of the other stories available at the Patreon?

For those interested, there’s a new patron-only short story available over at my Patreon. “Vast, Black, Brooding” finds writer and fashionable weirdo, Charles Fort, investigating a monstrous mystery in a New York speakeasy, alongside Theodore Dreiser. Guest-starring Dutch Schultz and Bugsy Siegel! Continue reading “A Super Evil Thing”
It’s that time of year, when the spirits of the dead wander freely and stories are told around blazing fires. When the world is at its darkest, on the verge of a new dawn.
By which I mean it’s Christmas. Continue reading “Haunted Holidays”
It’s Halloween, and as is tradition, I was hoping to write something about monster movies but didn’t get to it. In fairness, I have a little monster of my own to take care of, and that means things like blithering on about old movies take a backseat. Still, no reason to let the holiday pass by unremarked on.
Below is a list of all my writings about monsters and movies to date. Some of these are quite a few years old, but I think they hold up. Hopefully, I’ll have added to the list when Halloween rolls around next year.
But that’s not all! There’s a new free-to-read story over at my Patreon for you to enjoy. “The Fates of Dr. Fell” is my twisted take on the classic horror portmanteau film, albeit in short story form, and it seems appropriate to reprint it on Halloween. It originally appeared in the 2016 anthology, Spawn of the Ripper, from April Moon Books. The anthology is still available, by the way, and I highly recommend you check it out!
