Lou Pendergrast’s Review of THE SKELETON MELODIES at More2Read

There’s a revealing review of The Skeleton Melodies courtesy of Lou Pendergrast at More2Read: Must Read Books. “Pitting characters of various walks of life against terrors and dilemmas…through a modern weird horror telling, ancient and modern aspects fused with a few stories like a Flannery O’Connor and John Cheever tragedy with a horror mutation.” Pendergrast writes. “These tales will bring you to certain places with haunting remnants remaining and with this author the weird modern metamorphosis continues…”

“Skeletal” Echoes In the OUTER DARK

The Skeleton Melodies receives a generous shoutout by Gordon B. White on a recent episode of The Outer Dark on This Is Horror.  This installment features readings by both Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Orrin Grey, but Episode 091 launches with a sapient take on why the mode of weird fiction supplies such amenable medium for marginalized voices and outsider characteristics of “the other.”

Near the episode’s opening, in his brief critique of the collection (beginning at about the minute 8:15:00 marker), White (whose debut collection, As Summer’s Mask Slips and Other Disruptions, was released in 2020) notes a pair of pieces, “Details That Would Otherwise Be Lost to Shadow,” as well as my novella, Haunt Me Still.  Host Anya Martin mentions a potential future appearance on the program, a collaboration which is currently in the works.
