I hope everyone is staying safe during this uncertain and terrifying time. If you’re stuck at home, now is the perfect opportunity to appreciate the cathartic potential of horror fiction. To that end, I have two announcements to make:
First off, my story, Piss Slave, which originally appeared in Nihilism Revised’s anthology Strange Behaviours, and was later reprinted in my collection, Nightmares in Ecstasy, has been translated by Diego Cepeda over at Ediciones Vestigio. If you’re interested in reading the translation and supporting this wonderful Columbian press, head over to their Patreon page. As an added incentive, the translation also includes an incredible piece of art by Camilo Andrés. It blew me away.
On top of that, I have a new story in the latest issue of Forbidden Futures. It’s a weirdo/apocalyptic body horror story called “Mother’s Mark”. I’m very happy with this one, and it’s featured alongside a roster of some of the best writers in the field: Kim Vodicka, Craig L. Gidney, Gregory Bossert, Michael Allen Rose, Ed Kurtz, Jeff Strand, Matthew Bartlett, and Edward Lee. If you want to give it a read for free–and you should–head over to the FF website and sign up for the newsletter.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who’s been picking up the audiobook. And also, if you have money to spare, consider supporting your favourite artists during this period of quarantine. Not only will you be getting some awesome movies/books/video games/music to pass the time, you’ll also be helping to keep these creators afloat!
Stay safe and stay weird!
