New Fiction in Crimson Streets: “The Facts in the Case of Edgar Allan Poe”

Check out Crimson Streets for a new story of mine called The Facts in the Case of Edgar Allan Poe.

What if there were some lost documents out there that pointed to the sinister way Edgar Allan Poe really died? I actually did some research for this story, and maybe I really found documents like that. Maybe this is my way of letting the world know the truth. Or maybe not.

This story is accompanied by some great art work from John Waltrip. Check out the gothic horror vibe! It fits the piece well.

New Fiction in The Arcanist: “60 Seconds Remaining”

A new story of mine has been published on The Arcanist today.

60 Seconds Remaining is about what happens during his last minute on an exploding spaceship.

For the curious, this story originated from my 14 day writing challenge, where I was tasked with writing a story based on the first sentence I heard when turning on the TV.

Enjoy it! And while you are there check out the other cool stories and images published by The Arcanist.
