A Couple Recent Publications

Bards and Sages Quarterly July 2013My story "The Facts in the Case of M. Hussman"—a steampunk horror tale about cheating death, or at least trying—is out in the July edition of Bards and Sages Quarterly. I answered some questions about the story here. You can purchase Kindle versions of the magazine on Amazon here. If you want a hard copy, you can purchase it from the printer at Use the coupon code BY6VU834 to get a 10% discount.

My short fairy tale "Why the Squonk Weeps" made it into Underneath the Juniper Tree's first anthology. It's a collection of the best stories, poems and artwork from Underneath the Juniper Tree's 2011-2012 publications. This is a beautiful collection of stories and poems with creepy, color illustrations throughout the text. UTJT aims for macabre tales for children. You can find out more about it on Facebook at or the website at


  1. Congrats on the publication of Why the Squonk Weeps. I remember reading this and it just goes to show that stories find their readers eventually! Good job!

    1. Thanks, Lyn. Your comments helped shape that story's eventual ending.

  2. Congrats, Jeff - and great to be sharing a TOC with you at B&SQ.
