As the current administration continues to stamp its despotic bootprints across the world, I’ve only a handful of positives to remember from 2019. It has been a sparse year on the writing front, but I’m grateful for the following opportunities: many thanks to Justin A. Burnett for inviting me to write the introduction to his creepy anthology, Mannequin: Tales of Wood Made Flesh. More thanks to C.M. Muller who reprinted my story “Phantom Airfields” in issue #3 of his excellent dark science fiction publication, SYNTH. And a final thank you to Robert S. Wilson for including my story “The Figurine” in the charitable anthology Horror for RAICES.

Here’s hoping the opposition offers some respite in 2020 after the struggles of the last 3 years.
