“Swamp Dreams” Lives!

And remembers. And stalks the rain-drenched night of southern Appalachia. But don’t take my word for it; seek out the monster yourself in the fourth issue of Phantasmagorium, Gorgon Press’s quarterly journal of the literary fantastique.

In addition to being my latest published story, “Swamp Dreams” also serves as an excerpt (and puzzle piece) from the ever-elusive but nonetheless forthcoming book, The Untold Tales of Ozman Droom.

Edited by Joe Pulver and featuring the artwork and graphic design of J. D. Busch, Phantasmagorium #4 also includes fiction by Ken Asamatsu, Daniel Mills, Jayaprakash Satyamurthy, and Jeffrey Thomas; poetry by Kristine Ong Muslim; an interview with Ross Lockhart, Managing Editor of Night Shade Books; and a monstrously gorgeous illustration of “Swamp Dreams” by Rob Macabre Smits.

For readers who have expressed a desire to acquire my work in electronic format, this is your first opportunity. If, however, print remains your medium of choice, a trade paperback edition of Phantasmagorium #4 will soon be available from Amazon and directly from Gorgon Press.

Thanks for reading, friends.
