Let's Meet The Neighbors...

Yes, the American spelling is correct: The Neighbors is the new anthology from Zimbell House Publishing and the theme is the folks who live next door with a variety of takes on what makes them odd. I've contributed two stories.

The first, Flawed, is about that problem that afflicts everyone who ever moves in beside you - they have a flaw. Only, this time, the new neighbours don't seem to have one. What dark secret are they hiding? It's a humorous short in the manner of the film The 'Burbs.

My second story in this collection is Over For Dinner and it brings in a certain yellow-hued Mythos as gaining new neighbours turns into a horrific experience.

You can order The Neighbors from and in both paperback and on the Kindle.

Travel back in time...

Read my story The Return in issue four of Fantasia Divinity magazine - order it (pb/kindle) from (Kindle)/ (pb) and (Kindle)/ (pb).

In the fourth issue of Fantasia Divinity Magazine, we feature five stories by very talented writers. First, "What Color are Her Eyes" by Tyson West is a story inspired by the classic fairy tale Snow White in a modern ranch setting. Then in "Shoreside" by Vonnie Winslow Crist, a day at the beach is anything but for one woman who is torn between her duty to her family and the call of the sea. Next in "Not in the Stars" by Caroline Sciriha, a young woman journeys back in time and meets her inspiration. In “The Return” by DJ Tyrer, a woman must return to her childhood home following the death of her father, where she discovers a mysterious machine that takes her back to the one day she wants to forget the most. And lastly in "Bring Down the Sun" by Randy Hulshizer, a young girl who has a highly coveted gift seeks to escape the clutches of those who wish to use her.
