Cemetery Moon, Issue #9 2013… (appearances)

I have a gothic horror story appearing in the 2013 issue, No. 9, of Fortress Publishing’s Cemetery Moon.  Nice looking Cthulhu cover art, perfect for this particular edition.  I guess it’s themed.  Features short fiction by Me, AJ Huffman, Gerald E. Sheagren, Brian Barnett, Larry Hinkle, Dr. Bill deArmond, Allen Koop, Donald C. White, William Andre Sanders, and William Amundsen.  If you’d like to order it, just click on the link or pic below.  Only available in print; they really should put out a digital version to this.

I had remembered appearing in this particular digest a long time ago, but I couldn’t place when.  Then I remembered, I was in the premiere issue with authors Kristine Ong Muslim, Kenneth Goldman, and Barry J. House.  Now that publishing is collapsing, with mass publications relying heavily on publicity expenditures and print magazines in the final stages of extinction, I’m going to miss these little pulps from yesteryear.  One could step back in time and relive the days of when authors like Ray Bradbury, Fritz Lieber, John Campbell and A.E. Van Vogt were just starting out.   I must confess, I’m going to miss it; oddly enough, another part of me isn’t.

From The Willows Magazine homepage:

     Through the work of rising authors like G. D. Falksen, Lawrence Dagstine, and Paul Marlowe, we are also pioneering the genre of “steampunk horror,” in which elements of the golden age weird tale or Gothic romance are combined with an elegant 19th-Century proto-science-fiction aesthetic, such as that embodied by Welles, Verne, and the earliest pulp writers.

     We love work set in Victorian times, in the European countryside, in a twisted fairyland, in the underbelly of an enchanted city, aboard a triphibian ambulator, or in the ruins of an undiscovered civilization.

     If your favorite authors are those who initiated and maintained the unique movements of weird fiction and proto-SF, and those who continue these traditions today, The Willows is the place to read tales you will enjoy, and to submit your own work! We warmly welcome new writers, but we also print pieces from established authors.

The Nautilus Engine, April 2008… (appearances)

You can now find a reprint of mine in the April 2008 edition of THE NAUTILUS ENGINE (Vol. 1, no. 4).  Edited by Christian Klaver.   The publication primarily focuses on “weird tales”, or those little horror and dark fantasy stories which are easily comparable to the works of Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, Algernon Blackwood, Jules Verne, and H.G. Wells.
