Here is the cover for All Dark Places – the upcoming horror anthology from Dragon Soul Press. It was designed by the fabulous Ruxandra Tudorica at Methyss Art.
I have a short story entitled Once in a Lifetime in this collection. A psychological horror story dripping with existential dread, it is based on a particularly alarming (and surprisingly well-plotted) nightmare I had earlier this year. It is also partly inspired by some of the lyrics in Talking Heads classic 1981 single of the same name.
This is the first piece of writing I have not self-published, and it has been tremendous to see this whole project come together, under the brilliant editorial control of Jade Feldman.
I hope to interview the other hugely talented authors (A.M. Cummins, Anna Sinjin and Hui Lang) who contributed to this volume on this blog soon. Also there will be updates on launch events, in the run up to the official release.
All Dark Places is released on the 30th October.
