My story, "DOCTOR DOLITTLE HE AIN'T" has been accepted for Fearology 2, set to be published by Library of Horror! I'm surprised because I thought it was simply too absurd but shows what I know ;)

It follows a man named Middleton as he ends up in a desert diner during a ferocious storm. Turns out he's been on the run for a couple of months...from NATURE! The story makes completely mental use of such creatures as a komodo dragon and a colossal squid as Nature it/herself hunts Middleton down for something terrible he's done to it/her. Oooohh yyeeeaaahhhh!

  1. Congrats on the acceptance! Am looking forward to being in Fearology with you :-) Your story sounds great by the way!

  2. Thanks ^_^ yours sounds pretty cool too - I'm a sucker for violent cat stories (re: The Cat From Hell by Stephen King) haha

  3. Cheers, hehe, I don't know that one (been writing horror longer than I've been reading it) but I think I might enjoy it!

  4. The Cat From Hell's a great story. It's reprinted in King's recent Just After Sunset collection, which is absolutely fantastic. Every story in it rocks.

    My story "Night of the Widow" was also chosen for the Fearology 2 anthology. Look forward to reading both of your stories.


  6. Neat. I'm looking forward to my contributor's copy too. Congrats.
