An Unnerving Announcement: DEAD THINGS Redux

I’m elated to announce a recent collaboration with Unnerving and its helmer, Eddie Generous, who’s picked up my novella, When It’s Time For Dead Things To Die, originally published by Dunham’s Manor Press (2015), and has now been updated, expanded, and slated for re-release mid-March, 2019.

DeadThings

For those of you unfamiliar with this story, here’s a synopsis penned by the estimable C.M. Muller:

Things are in decline…for Joseph Lowe, a rootless young man who falls for the wrong girl; for Gregory Bath, an aristocratic magnate who spares Lowe an almost certain death for his ‘transgression,’ imposing upon him a kind of parasitic servitude. Now working as a line cook at Bath’s legendary Tudor Quoin, as well as catering to the growing needs of a man far older than he seems, Lowe desperately seeks release from a trap which has ensnared him for the past nine months. But who could possibly escape a family as powerful, as influential, or as far-reaching as the Baths? In the end, choices must be made, sides must be drawn, and for Lowe this means discovering an unlikely salvation between himself and his captor, as well as learning the true meaning of ‘family.’

From the scintillating mind of Clint Smith, author of Ghouljaw and Other Stories, comes a haunting, poetic novella, equal parts Dracula and Eastern Promises, set in modern-day Indiana but stretching its talons far back into history.

More news on the way; but in the meantime, check out Mr. Generous’s horror and dark fiction projects, submission guidelines, and other numerous upcoming releases over at Unnerving:

Black celebration: Halloween, 2011

Southside Times, October 27, 2011

Seasons grievings, dear reader.  No—it’s not a work of fiction, but my specter-centric story in this week’s edition of the Southside Times contains a spooky bit of speculation.  “Lady in black dress weaves a woeful tale” is the front page feature for October 27, 2011.  If you’re interested in picking up a hardcopy, the story will be available on local newsstands through next Wednesday (November 3, 2011).  Or check out the story by clicking on the picture at the right of this page.  Also, if you’d like to read more about the Franklin Township Historical Society, follow this link to their website: FTHS.

As always, thanks for reading, and have a pleasantly creepy Halloween.
