“Imagine yourself in a cemetery.  Void of all light at the base of a tree.  But it’s no ordinary tree.  This tree abounds with the dead.  Now envision that each tree limb is a short story with its own vision, its own length of words, and its own insanity. . . .”

So begins the description on Amazon of CEMETERY RIOTS (cf. May 5; September 2, August 27 2015), dated the last day of June, the 30th, by Editors T.C. Bennett and Tracy L. Carbone with stories by such as Richard Christian Matheson, Hal Bodner, Cemetery RiotEric J. Guignard, John Palisano, William F. Nolan, and, um, me.  A “new collection of dark cautionary tales” in which mine, “The Re-Possessed,” might be seen as a warning to never stiff (yes, pun intended) the funeral director.

But hey, this is one we’ve been waiting for, so without, as they say, further ado, for more information/ordering press here.

Then, received this afternoon, my fantasy/mystery courtroom novelette “By Force and Against the King’s Peace” has received a publication date for Bards and Sages Publishing’s THE SOCIETY OF MISFIT STORIES (cf. June 23), a new electronic-only series tailored for science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories from 5,000 to 20,000 words that may find themselves at an awkward length for submission elsewhere.  “By Force. . . ,” at a tad less than 10,000 words, is itself a reprint (which is okay, though it’s expected that most “Society” members will probably be new) originally published in ALFRED HITCHCOCK’S MYSTERY MAGAZINE in December 1999, and is being tagged here to appear on September 9.

Let’s take a short trip on the wayback machine, pausing at September 2 and August 27 2015.  The subjects, the acceptance and then sending back the contract for a new story, “The Re-Possessed” about a deal gone bad for an undertaker in Victorian London, for an also new anthology titled CEMETERY RIOTS.  Flash forward to now (or actually yesterday, Wednesday, by now) and comes an update from editor T.C. Bennett, that the anthology is on target for publication in June, and could I send a current biography?   And also 11401216_108575572813296_1964991277105814082_na suggestion I check co-editor Tracy L.Carbone’s website for a list of authors selected thus far.

So, with editor Bennett’s permission, here’s the update, actually going back itself to about mid-March, but pretty impressive even with a few names yet to come.  Or, in Tracy’s words:

This stellar anthology is coming out in June of 2016 by Awol from Elysium Press a.k.a. T.C. Bennett.  I’ve been excited to edit this with him as I’m seeing some fantastic talent come across our virtual desks.

The stories are strong, character driven, good old fashioned horror.  Cautionary tales that will stay with you long after you have finished reading.

We’ve got some great stories from seasoned bestsellers and brand-new fiction writers. . . .
