The new covers for my short stories are in

Once again the great Kit Foster has come through brilliantly. These three stories are currently with my proofreader Diana Cox and afterword will spend a day or two with my formatters, Ted Risk and Lucinda Campbell, so I don't expect them to be up on Kindle for another couple of weeks.

But just in case any of the images have tweaked your interest, I'll include a short summary of each story.

Bird of Prey (Novella) Horror

Nestled in the warm belly of the abandoned Keisel steel works an ancient creature has begun to stir. A one hundred year cycle is drawing to a rapid close and with it the time when the beast must lead her newly hatched young to the feeding grounds.
A handful of the oldest folks in town remember that time well. A time when the sky was clotted with flapping, leathery wings and monsters driven mad by the smell of human blood. They also know of the feeding grounds. They know them as the backyards in which their kids play and the streets of the tiny Alaskan town they call home.
Buck Sanders didn’t know any of this the day he arrived at the steel works to pilfer a length of siding for the roof of his crumbling bar. And neither did his friend Tommy Hodgkins. But they are perhaps the only ones who can stop the curse that has been playing out for centuries. At stake is more than their lives. At stake is everything.

The Grip (short story) Sci-fi/Horror

Lt. Cready and Engineer Andreas Chavez have been selected to man a claustrophobic outpost on the outer edge of the solar system. After a year and a half with no word from Earth, nerves become frayed and tensions mount as Cready begins to suspect that his friend isn't entirely human.

The Second Coming (short story) Horror

Jack Barrow has traveled back in time to save his family from a sadistic killer. Now he just has to convince Dr. Sims at Belleview Heights Mental Institution he isn't crazy.


  1. I can't speak for Bird of Prey (yet), but if it is anything like The Grip and The Second Coming, it will be a first class read. I got the opportunity to read these stories a couple of days ago and they are really first rate! Well worth a look - really good reads!

  2. Thanks Kit! Really glad you liked them. I'll definitely put up a blog post when they go live. I'm hoping within the month and I may even make one or two of the short stories free. As for Bird of Prey, it was a lot of fun to write so I hope you enjoy it.
