Sale: Fools Pass Under

I’m delighted to announce the sale of my story about the troll of London Bridge, “Fools Pass Under,” to Mysterion. It’s tentatively scheduled for publication around Thanksgiving (late November).

Sale: Field of Cloth of Gold and Blood, Sweat and Tears

Now that the Table of Contents has been announced, I’m thrilled to say I have a story forthcoming in Zombies Need Brains’ Alternate Peace anthology this summer.

“Field of Cloth of Gold and Blood, Sweat and Tears” imagines how the 1520 meeting of kings at the Field of Cloth of Gold might have unfolded had a certain “malign vapour” not struck down the inhabitants of Ludlow Castle in 1502.
