LOOMING LOW, Vol. II Now Available!

I’ve mentioned it before, but it looks like the physical-copy rollout is official. Looming Low, Vol. II is now available by the good people at Dim Shores, with my story, “Lovenest,” appearing on a roster of woefully-talented writers. Check out the trailer for Looming Low, Vol. II created by Lena Griffin. The paperback edition is coming at you (at a steal) with the price tag of $22, while the limited edition, hand-numbered hardback clocks in at a wholly-reasonable $40.

In “Lovenest,” I return to themes of relational decay and carnality amid a prolonged razing of a Midwest motel. Along with a bat-creature attack and an onslaught of reanimated corpses, it’s one of my wilder stories that’s been published.
