Halloween Reads

If you're looking to get into the spirit of Halloween, then I'm pleased to report I've got a few short stories and a couple of longer-length works that just might do the trick. Click the embedded link or any of the links over on the right to learn more:

First off, my horror short Ohrwurm about a detective investigating a suicide who comes away with more than he bargained for is currently free on Smashwords, iTunes, Kobo and the like.

My short The Intersection is about a small town cop with a vexing traffic problem, who might just learn not knowing is far better than knowing. This story first appeared in Blood Bound Books Night Terrors anthology.

While not specifically horror, my latest story titled The Ghost and Mr. Londergan does indeed have paranormal elements. In this one, hard-boiled P.I. Dick Londergan is dispatched to protect a haunted house, and soon finds himself fighting for his own life.

The short Fortunato's Ghost is a tale of the zombie apocalypse, with the last vestiges of the City of Boston taking refuge on the islands of Boston Harbor, where they try to build a new society using strange -- but necessary -- new rules. This one appeared first in the zombie anthology Dead Worlds: Undead Stories.

If you're looking for a little humor with your horror, my St. Pete-centric zombie short Nearly Dead might be right up your alley. In this one, a hitman is sent to St. Pete in the middle of a zombie infestation to take out a mob squealer. Despite all the zombies, he finds his beloved St. Pete hasn't really changed all that much.

The collections 21C and Other Sordid Tales and Adamson's Rock and Other Stories are both chock full of zombies, aliens, bizarre plants, murder, and mayhem, that are sure to get your Halloween off on the right foot.

Last but not least, of course, are the first two books in my vampire saga, Applewood and its sequel Fledge. The Applewood saga begins first with the vampire infestation of a small Massachusetts town. Its sequel takes the show on the road, to Arizona, Colorado, Mexico, Gold Rush California, and into the White House itself.

At any rate, long story short, if you're looking to scratch that Halloween itch, please take a look at some of my stuff! Most people seem to like it. Maybe you will too! And as always, thanks for reading.
