This is another announcement I’ve missed by a few days (so it goes, cf. March 26) but DIGITAL HORROR FICTION ANTHOLOGY is now available on Amazon in print as well as Kindle.  Also the Kindle sale is over, with the price there gone up to $4.99, while the paperback price is $12.99.  My story in this, as noted before, is “The Borrowed Man,” a TOMBS world story but one that does not appear in the novel TOMBS: A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH itself.  Originally published in THE GIRL AT THE END OF THE WORLD, BOOK 1 (Fox Spirit Books, 2014), “The Borrowed Man” tells of a women who hires the help of a corpse-train master to build a man out of selected parts — legs for dancing, lips for kissing, etc. — from the recently dead in order to construct a perfect lover.  But a question remains:   What of this man’s soul?

If interested, for more on the print edition press here, while a link to the Kindle version can be found in the post for March 26, below.

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!
