Two Vamps and City of Dead, Chilling Ghost Stories Proceed Apace

Holiday fireworks having ended (or at least so hopes the cave cat Wednesday, though to her credit she bore up well over the weekend noise), the mundane bits of the writing business begin for July.  Thus lateish Sunday I received and sent back the contract from Jack of No Trades Productions for three poems to be published in NOTHING’S SACRED VOL. 3 (see June 24).  The poems in question include two on vampires, “The Vampire’s Excuse” and “The Vampiress Reflects,” and a “horrorku” concerning graveyards, “Necropolis.”

And then today, Monday, an email came from Flame Tree Publishing Editor Gillian Whitaker noting that “[w]e’re just finalizing the author biographies” and requesting a confirmation of where and when my story to be in CHILLING GHOST SHORT STORIES (see June 21) was first published.  The story in this case is “Victorians,” originally in the anthology GOTHIC GHOSTS from Tor Books in 1997.

If everything else continues on time, CHILLING GHOST SHORT STORIES should be out in the UK on August 15, while NOTHING’S SACRED is scheduled for an October release.


  1. Congratulations, Jim! This appears to be another STAR year for you!
