"Darkling I Listen"

My flash horror piece "Darkling I Listen, and for Many A Time" sold today to Fear and Trembling, a new horror magazine. Their first issue was out not long ago, and I must say, true to the norm of other DEP publications, the cover was a joy. I am looking forward to being in the sharp-looking magazine!

Fear this!

"Servant" novel

So I started it. The word has been that now would be a good time to write a "Servant" novel, as in the last half of the year there will be at least 5, maybe 6 stories in the series in print.
Working title is The Tears of Ishtar, which is both the McGuffin and evokes some classic pulp titles for me, including the quite wonderful (but now unreadable as an adult) classic Ship of Isthar by A.A. Merritt.
For those of you who are interested in the process, I will keep you posted!

Servant Series started at Sword Review

Check it out:

"High pay, great danger, long journey, bad company."

How could you not be tempted by an offer like that? In the days of the ancient near-east, a story of love, betrayal, murder, magic and a fell beast.

"Voice of the Spoiler" is revived from our archives to lead off a five-part serial from Michael Ehart. This story appeard in The Sword Review October 9, 2005. Next month, we reprise "Servant of the Manthacore" and follow after that with three never before published stories that complete the tale.
