SiD 2 Title2

Dusk:  a time between times; on the edge between the light and the dark. A time of change.

I’m incredibly pleased to announce that I’ll be teaming up with Books of the Dead Press once again, and editing a sequel to the 2014 anthology of horror and dark fiction, Suspended in Dusk.

To be released mid-2016, Suspended in Dusk 2 will be another quality collection of fiction from some of the best current authors of short dark fiction, featuring stories from:   Stephen Graham Jones, Damien Angelica Walters, Alan Baxter, Karen Runge, Benjamin Knox, and many more. More exciting names and news will be revealed in coming weeks.  I’m very pleased that, once again, “Suspended in Dusk” will collect a range of voices from new and established talented female and male writers of the dark, bizarre, and terrifying.

Suspended in Dusk 2 will be introduced by the amazingly talented Angela Slatter. Angela Slatter is a British Fantasy Award winning and World Fantasy Award nominated author of several collections of short stories, including The Bitterwood Bible, and Sourdough and Other Stories.  Her novella Of Sorrow and Such was recently released by Tor, October 13 2015.  www.angelaslatter.com

In addition to fantastic fiction, horror author and artist, Aaron Dries, will be creating illustrations of a number of the collected stories to be included in the paperback edition of Suspended in Dusk 2.  Aaron is a masterful horror artist and his terrifying illustrations are highly sought after.  I encourage you to check out both Aaron’s dark artwork, and his fiction.  www.aarondries.com

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post, largely because I’ve been so busy!

I’ve been sweating on this new project of mine, an anthology of horror and dark fiction, titled Suspended in Dusk.  Over the last few months I’ve collected 19 short stories which I feel are a broad representation of some of the established and new talent within the horror/dark/weird genres. I am also very pleased that over one-third (42% unless I screwed the maths) of the table of contents are women who, frankly, scare the crap out of me every bit as much as their male counterparts (probably more!).

This anthology has been picked up by Books of the Dead press, run by James Roy Daley.  James has previously published fantastic and award-winning authors such as  Jonathan Maberry (multi-Bram Stoker winner), NYT Best Seller Tim Lebbon, and so many more.

Full table of contents to come in coming days, but to whet your appetite, Suspended in Dusk will feature stories from the likes of Ramsey Campbell (Bram Stoker and British Fantasy award winner), Angela Slatter (British Fantasy Award Winner, Aurealis Award winner), John Everson (Bram Stoker Award winner) and many of the established and emerging masters of the dark and horrific.

Stay tuned for more info in coming days. Time permitting, in the lead-up to publication I’ll be going through the process of interviewing all the authors collected in the anthology, here on my blog.
