New Reads Are Out


Planetary Anthology: Earth and To Be Men, anthologies by Superversive Press, are available for purchase. I have a story in each of these very fine volumes that I hope you will enjoy. BTW, there are over a dozen stories in each volume written by many other amazing writers that I really am sure that you will enjoy too.

So order your paperback copy or download your copy on Kindle at the links above.

Putting On My Editor’s Hat Again

There’s a new website that launched on April 2, 2018. You can find it here: and it covers the wonderful genre of Urban Fantasy. I recently told you about Secret Stairs: Tribute To Urban Legend, an anthology of 34 short stories that I was fortunate to be a part of. It was published by Silver Empire Publishing about a month ago and has been at or just below the #1 Horror Anthology on Amazon.

Well Russell Newquist, who runs Silver Empire, was so thrilled with how Secret Stairs has done he decided to launch a website to explore the entire genre in books, on television and in movies. He reached out to me, given my 20+ years experience with running newspaper departments, to serve as the website’s Managing Editor and I happily accepted the position.

We’ve already started posting content to the site with much more to come. So give it a look and be sure to let us know what you think of it.

The men will chase their quarry across the American Plains until none are left standing and God help anyone who gets in their way.

Eerie by Gibson Michaels

This sci-fi/fantasy hybrid was Michaels’ fourth book and he was working on it when he passed away in 2017. Fellow Dragon Award Finalist Richard Paolinelli has taken up the project and will finish this grand story on behalf of his fallen friend and fellow author.
