Twenty five Published Short Stories, Two Novels and One Collection

Well, that’s it so far. I’m not sure how to proceed.

The Heaven Maker and other Gruesome Tales

Not the kind of thing to take to bed for a good night’s sleep.” Admirably summarizing this new work by a veteran author who many horror aficionados will have encountered in the legendary Pan Horror series and […]
