Recent News

I received word that Pill Hill Press has accepted my story "The Crooked House of Coins" for their upcoming anthology There Was a Crooked House. This is the story of two cousins, some coins, and a haunted house. As the title suggests, the house is crooked. It leans to one side and becomes more crooked as the story progresses. The ghosts of the cousins' great-grandfather and uncle haunt the house in which their great-grandfather cached some 1933 Double Eagles, which are very rare and valuable coins. One cousin goes mad as the pair rip the house apart from the inside during their search for the coins. The ghosts become angry and one of the cousin suffers retribution. Written specifically for the crooked house anthology, this story has many parallels to Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher."

In related news, the Pill Hill Press anthology How the West Was Wicked, which contains my story "Shafts to Hell," is now in print.


  1. This is fantastic. Congratulations! Pill Hill puts out so many interesting volumes. Must feel good to make the cut -- and more than once.

  2. Well done, sir! Pill Hill Press has treated you well this year.
