This is sort of a stealth announcement, the publication of one of my stories that I only found out about today, obliquely, via another author’s tag on Facebook.  So it goes.  The anthology is DIGITAL HORROR FICTION ANTHOLOGY:  VOLUME 1, by Digital Fiction Publishing Corp., and the story, sixth on the contents list, “The Borrowed Man” originally published by Fox Spirit Books in 2014 in THE GIRL AT THE END OF THE WORLD, BOOK 1 (cf. August 30 2017; August 8 2014, et al.).  “The Borrowed Man,” incidentally, is set in the world of TOMBS:  A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH although not a part of the novel-in-stories itself, and concerns a wealthy New City woman who wishes to possess a perfect man.

In all, DIGITAL FICTION HORROR ANTHOLOGY contains 25 stories, and looks at least to cover a variety of types and topics.  For more one may peruse the table of contents, below, or check it out on Amazon here where, at least for the moment, the Kindle edition can be obtained for just 99 cents!

I might mention, also, that I have a story due to come out in DIGITAL SCIENCE FICTION, a companion volume of sorts, or maybe even out by now.  More tags via Facebook, perhaps, will tell.

  1. WHAT?? You mean they took your story without asking? And are they paying you? Are you okay with this? Gosh!!

  2. No, no, they had accepted the story in August last year, just that they didn’t bother to tell me a day or two ago when they published it. (Oddly this isn’t the first publisher not to bother to tell writers when the publication comes out either in my experience. One would think the authors might like to know — and to tell their friends which could result in a few extra sales.)

  3. Just to be sure I looked up the contract and it’s a “standard” pay due within 30 days after publication. So maybe if nobody knew it was published, that would allow payment to be delayed indefinitely 🙂 .
